    It would be nice if I could order a simple plate of pasta with sauce. No meat. It would also be nice if the steaks came with choice of potato such as baked, garlic mashed, etc... More vegetables would be good.

    Loved the chicken Parmigiano special dinner. It was awesome and the price was good. Should offer more specials like that. We go often and the menu is fairly limited. We love the steaks but sometimes want a change.

    Excellent food and great service. We had the tasty bruschetta. I had the fish which was cooked to perfection and came with very tasty gnocchi. My friend had the Boar with pappardelle. They no longer had Panna cotta but the choco-hazelnut dessert made up for it.

    I want to write a five star review because the staff are so nice and accommodating but unfortunately management needs to provide them with a little more support. We attended Sunday brunch with a reservation. After being seated, we waited about 20 minutes for anyone at all to acknowledge us. And tbh, the place didn’t seem that busy. Finally, the bartender noticed and became our server! He made best efforts but wasn’t able to really explain the 5 course brunch process. We had mushroom soup which was delicious but lukewarm. This seemed to be the theme for the rest of meal courses. The Caesars were great and our server, who appeared towards the end, was extremely pleasant. The staff really did their best but management should probably revisit staff levels or whatever. That said, I’ll return as I have for the past 5 or 6 times.

    It was quiet when my wife and I went so that was great. Our drink order and food order was taken quickly. The food came quickly as well. The food was excellent. I highly recommend the Frutti Di Mare. It was excellent. I would recommend eating here as we will definitely be back.

    Good selection. The food was very tasty but not served hot enough. There were a few items that were missed and we had to remind the server. We never received the toast with some of the dishes. I enjoyed my egg florentine and the desserts were delicious. The servers were well organized and the orders arrived in time. They were friendly and professional. I would return.

    For a first time serving brunch they really knocked it out of the park - a SIX course meal (and to go boxes which were appreciated). It was busy but we didn't wait long for any course - our table was quite close to the kitchen action and they had everything well in hand. The choices were ample, and we would go again.

    Service was extremely slow. We were three (3) hours having Brunch. I was told that there was something wrong in the kitchen which was delaying service. You were short staffed also. The food was quite delicious but the delay spoiled our experience.

    Our table was great on the top level as stairs are difficult. The food was delicious and I am sorry but I don't remember our server's name but she was the greatest, lovely, smart and so kind. We had her before and we told her that. The girl that had her nails all done beautifully if you can put a note on her file I would appreciate it. Tall and slim. We both we so full we didn't eat anything until this morning. Also the girl that was at the front desk that took us to our table was lovely too.

    Bad uncooked food. Pizza was rat in the center, over cheesy and greasy. Service was mediocre at best. Understaffed. Prices way to high for quality/portion size. No gluten free option. Will not be back.

    We recently had dinner at the Caffe Italiano and was very pleased with our dinner. We were joined by 2 other guests and all of us were quite happy with our choice of meals. Everything was done as ordered. Tanya, our server, did an excellent job, as usual. She always goes above and beyond to make sure you have an enjoyable experience. Looking forward to going again.
