    Food was abysmal. Server was extremely sweet but truly could not make up for how awful everything about the food was.

    The price of the food was way too high for what you get! $38 for a bowl of pasta with a few pieces of shrimp is a bit much! The outdoor area was very cramped and the silverware, table linens and drinking glasses were dirty! Our waitress splashed water all over our feet when pouring our water. The table across from us spilled their ice water all over the table and the waitress came along and cleared off the ice with her hand and flung it across on the ground hitting our feet and then said “what it’s refreshing”…. Overall it is just very overpriced for the food that you get even if it is made from scratch!!

    The pasta dish was excellent. The Caesar salad underdressed and way too big. Calamari was good and tiramisu excellent. However it is way overpriced.

    Our waitress tried so hard and it was appreciated but……..wow, no bartender so we had to walk them through how to make cocktails. It appeared only three persons were on staff thus delays at every turn. Then the food was just ok. We won’t return any time soon.

    It was a very busy night & the wait staff was hustling. The service was obviously slower than usual, but we never felt that it was too extreme based on the number of tables that were being served. The food was amazing right from the appetizer straight through to the dessert. The fig & burrata appetizer was out of this world!! The food was well worth the short wait!! I can 100% recommend this restaurant & we cannot wait to go back!

    three tables that came in after us got their food before we received our salad. The filet special was an average cut (over-cooked) with one shrimp on top and almost $80. Not even close to being worth the cost.

    One of the best Italian meals I've ever had. If you haven't been to Cugino's, what are you waiting for? Frank and his wife have put their heart and soul into this restaurant and you can feel it as soon as you walk in. I highly recommend the tagliatelle bolognese, and the short ribs.

    We had a party of 6 for NYE, most ordered the filet mignon my group didn't seem to care for the dijon mustard sauce spread on the top. Atmosphere was pleasant but loud, waited awhile for our meals, but that seems to be the norm now a days. Our waitress was VERY fun and energetic! Over all very good and I would definitely return.

    Unfortunately the negative reviews were spot on. Starting with the bread, which was (as another reviewer remarked) simply wrong. Taste and consistency were off and it fell apart before you could get it in your mouth. We split the stuffed banana pepper appetizer and knew we were in trouble early. They were stuffed with Italian sausage and cheese that was very bland. Both of our (expensive) dishes were also bland and lacked any appreciable seasoning. My wife ordered the fillet mignon, medium, and it arrived well done and again...largely flavorless. While every other employee was masked, our server was unmasked the entire time. Bill and tip came to just over $200.00. Very disappointing experience.

    Everything tasted delicious. We had a relaxing lovely meal catching up with friends. It was hard to understand our waitress due to her accent and she had trouble understanding us which affected the service. But it in no way detracted from our evening.
