    We have grandson who is allegic to nuts. I put this on the reservation and informed the waitress when we ordered dinnner about the allegy. She made a note of it Dinner was fine, but dessert, he ordered Tar to Fo which had a crust around the icecream. When we looked at it she was not in sight so I went to the kitcehn and talked to a maager who said the desert weas not made on premise and he wouldn't chance it. Very kindly he offered to bring a bowl of vanilla ice cream, which he did. Waitresses must pay more attention to allergies as they can be killers.

    My husband and I both really enjoyed this place, we were both in the mood for Italian cuisine and Alice Fazooli's delivered just that! Our waiter was attentive and friendly and we were seated in a low traffic area which I requested and there weren't too many kids at the time we went so we got to have our nice dinner our for two. This place is absolutely kid friendly as long as the parents have respect for other diner's as we were on a date night and so were a few other's. This is definitely affordable and the portion sizes are perfect and it's a local place I can get a quick Italian fix! Thank you Alice Fazooli's we had a nice quiet date night just as we wanted!

    We had our reservation after the dinner rush and while the food was tasty the sevice was below par. We weren't checked on, our drinks were not refilled, we didn't get offered the dessert menu but intead were pushed to get the bill. Its disappointing that because we went after the dinner rush I feel like the superior service employees went home already.

    A party of 6 with orders including 2 Chicken Parmesan, 2 Seafood Fettuccine, Chicken Carbonara and children's cheese pizza. All were okay...nothing special. However, the appetizers (Spinach dip and Bruschetta) were quite good. They were very tasty and plentiful. This was the reason for 3* for food. Otherwise the main courses would not be a reason to come back. The service was okay and unobtrusive, however, I did find refilling the drinks were inconsistent. He brought a refill to one without being asked, while not with another. Another issue I did find odd was that our entrees came at different times. There should be 2 (or even 3 for larger groups) wait staff bringing the entrees so that it's served together. Recommend for Appetizers!

    we had appetizers, mushroom soup, different kinds of pizza ( love the thin crust! ) and pasta, coffee and wine. The bruschetta used to be served on a toast and we liked it better then , now they serve it on regular bread, the taste is still good however. Love the tables covered with tablecloth, the additional paper napkins, the wine decanter, the extra parmiggiano cheese! Service was fast and friendly, Shaun did a great job serving us and also the others were attentive and friendly. Good job you guys!

    Our appetizers and main course came relatively on time but after we ordered our dessert it didnt arrive until 15 minutes later. Unacceptable for an item that doesn't even need to be cooked or prepared (Gelato).

    I had been there recently and enjoyed the meal very much, so took my daughter for her birthday, had the same meal and didn't find it tasty at all. We were promised bread before the meal and it was forgotten. We had to ask for it and it came a few minutes after the meal. Had to ask for knife and fork. Also black speck in the cream for my coffee, which I just took out.

    We recently went to the Oakville location for the first time, and were impressed all around. The decor straddled the line between cozy and classy, the wait staff were friendly without being fake, and kept an eye on us (and our glasses and plates) without hovering or constant interruptions. The food was FABULOUS --several steaks were ordered to different standards, but all arrived hot and cooked exactly as we wanted, which a lot of restaurants seem to have trouble with. Our only complaint was that the Italian amongst us thought the cannolli were too sweet (but everyone else liked them just fine). Definitely a place to return to.

    Restaurant was very accommodating with my food intolerances and food was tasty with good size portions. Extensive list of beer on tap and decent wine selections. Our server was friendly enough, when she was around. I would say service was mediocre at best considering we arrived later than the typical dining hour.

    I love Alice Fazooli's. It's a great place for people with different dietary needs and tastes to meet. A couple of issues however were the service, the portion sizes, getting the orders right and the noise level. A) the service -upon entering a hostess was centred at the computer terminal and refused to look up, much less acknowledge my existence. A second hostess came by said hello but continued to ignore me. I was meeting my party and wanted to know where they were seated so I could join them. I understand it was a Saturday night but I was not waiting for a table, I was waiting for directions. There were two of them, asking guests "how they could help them" would have been nice. Not all of us are wanting a table.

    Food was good although one entree was forgotten.. a salad was offered while waiting for it, meanwhile the rest of us had our dinners. I made a reservation to ensure an "out of the way" table (specified that in my reservation request) and got a table right in the middle of the restaurant. We were able to move tables. Don't know why I had to ask to be moved, wasn't busy at the time and I had specified an out of the way table. Staff did best to rectify both situations, they did it well.

    Our evening was enjoyable. The Osso Bucco bites were delicious as alway, as were the Brushetta and Calamari. My chicken salad was disappointing, there wasn't much chicken and what there was looked and tasted like pre packaged pre sliced chicken and certainly not the roast chicken I expected. All in all an enjoyable evening with ok service.

    Recently had a pleasant evening at this restaurant. Alice Fazooli's is always reliable and the food pretty yummy. I only wish they'd expand upon is their entrée selection. Being vegan, it's difficult to eat out with friends sometimes or I end up eating at the same safe places that I know will accommodate my preferences. Wish Alice Fazooli's had more dishes that could have been modified to my liking. Would have really loved the Angel Hair pasta without the shrimp and maybe with some veggies. Often cheesecake factory has a pasta and makes chicken, salmon or shrimp options for an additional $_____, so everyone can get their pasta exactly as they want it.

    We have not been to this restaurant for while and decided to give it a try again. We invited another couple who had not been before, I booked a table for 7:30 pm. We were told they were running a little behind and it would be roughly 10 minutes. We sat in the bar and ordered a drink at 8:00 pm I asked the bartender to see if our table was ready and 10 minutes after that they called us through. If I had wanted to start eating at 8:30 pm I would have booked then, no apology was given. The server was excellent and very attentive but the food was very ordinary... in fact I would say I have had a better salad at McDonalds.

    Went for New Years - food was fantastic. Only problem due to 2 hour time limit everything came so fast, no time to fully finish each step of meal, desert came and was eaten before our waitress came back to ask if we wanted coffee- too late by then. Her comment was "oh that was fast" I appreciate it was a busy night but the food was not inexpensive so it should have been a little more relaxed not so rushed. It is one of our favourite restaurants, so we will go back. Just a little disappointed this time.
