  • Worth the $25

    Dined on 10/18/2014
    Decided to try out the pre-fixe menu and had the calarmari, chicken caccitore and tiramisu. Calamari was cooked nicely but I wasn't a huge fan of the sauce that came on the side. The chicken caccitore isn't something on their regular menu so I decided to give it a try. Nice flavours but it was a bit heavy on the salt for me. The tiramisu however, was the perfect ending. It's probably one of the best tiramisu dessert's I've ever had. Overall, for $25, it was quite worth it.

    Hadn't been to Fazooli's in about a year. Made reservations but didn't need to...Saturday night at 6:30 and the restaurant was only about 1/3 full. I ordered the Seafood Fettuccini. The shrimp was so overcooked that it was hard & the scallops weren't much better. The mussels were just right. Hmmm....how does that happen? The waiter was awesome though!

    This place is always good. I find that the food is good quality and the prices are reasonable. If there is any issue, it is that this place can sometimes be a little loud.

    Great food and beverage selection with very reasonable pricing. The food had a wonderful traditional ambiance while being current. I would recommend the Beef Rib Ravioli. We each had different menu and drink selections which we all enjoyed. The noise level was a bit too much to handle due to a large group celebrating.

    I think this was my forth time visiting this location. The service from our server, James, was top notch - he was friendly and always checking on us to see if we needed anything. However, the food was just decent this time, it wasn't terrible but it wasn't the best of all visits either. If there's anything memorable, it was the service by James.

    Used to be a regular here. The quality has gone down. We did not see out server until about 30 min after being seated. Had to send back my meal, the same dish i have been orfering for years here, twice and then just gave up and asked for something else. Also, after making a reservation on OpenTable, eating, paying and coming home, I received an email saying that the restaurant had canceled my reservation. Will not be coming back.

    Food was OK, except the pasta, came cold and had no taste. I would not order again pasta. The fish was good, fairly tasty. Server was not very experienced, but compensated with enthusiasm, she needs a little bit of training, usually we're being offered bread and olive oil, she asked if we want any just before the main course arrived. Overall, OK.

    First time dining at an Alice Fazooli's and while I'd heard good things, I was disappointed. The ravioli was undercooked and the sauce was salty to the point where it was nearly inedible. Service was fantastic (thanks Cory) but otherwise, very mediocre experience. Don't sacrifice quality for the sake of speed. Our food came quickly but it was poorly executed. I doubt any of the cooks even tasted the sauce or could tell if the ravioli was cooked properly.

    I dine here frequently and I am always impressed with the service, but unfortunately Friday night was disappointing. The waiter was pleasant but slow. We ordered white wine which came without a cooler. I asked him for one and it did not arrive for over an hour - the bottle was near empty. Two different servers brought our appetizers and main course. We we not given water until asked and also had to ask for forks with our main course. The server brought only one even though we asked for two, so she had to retrieve another one. We also had to ask for a second cup of coffee. The food was good as always.

    A bit disappointing when after a discussion on what to choose from the abundant lunch menu the two of the five who chose a salad featuring pickled beets were advised a few minutes later that the pickeled beets were unavailable. The offer to stick with the beet less salad was politley accepted in front of the group but once the server left it was clear they were both looking forward to what they had chosen off the menu originally

    Great place for first dates. Friendly hostess and waitress; although, the team was short staffed that day it was perfect for me and my date so we can talk more and weren't interrupted as much. The Deluxe Pizza tasted burnt and kind of ruined the rest of the flavours, but the salmon was tasty.

    Dined on 3/22/2014
    My wife and I generally go out to dinner 3 times a year. Sure, we go out as a family with our 2 children more often than that, but not as often as husband and wife. The service was superb. The portions were the ideal size. We had zero complaints about the restaurant itself. We will go again, probably for our anniversary or my birthday. That being said the only complaint is parking. Nowhere near enough spots and it was further complicated by poor snow removal by what ever company was contracted for parking lot maintenance. We were 15 minutes early, expecting to have a drink before dinner, but after we found a spot we made our reservation with only seconds to spare.

    Dined on 3/18/2014
    Alice Fazooli's is a typical chain restaurant. The food is fine. We were a party of 4 that shared appetizers, each had a main course and shared desserts. The apps were good. The main courses were fine, the kind of dish that you will not remember 2 days after you eat it but at the same time there was nothing wrong with them. We ordered 2 desserts and barely touched either of them. They were boring at best. I would neither give this restaurant a glowing review, nor would I discourage people from trying it.

    Dined on 3/8/2014
    We used to eat here a lot and decided to come by after not having been for a couple of years. The restaurant was busy as usual but we were able to get a reservation through OT. Our appetizers were good but the mains were uneven. Two of four were good; the others squarely in the mediocre category. Pasta was not properly cooked and a risotto dish was overseasoned and lacking in consistency. I think a restaurant that calls itself "Italian" ought to be able to consistently serve great pasta.

    I am gluten free and went here for my birthday dinner for the gluten free pasta. We ordered our appetizer and main course at the same time. We ordered the spinach dip for our appetizer and I ordered gluten free pasta. I wish at this point the waiter clued in and mentioned that the dip came with bread (not tortilla chips like most restaurants) since I ordered gluten free pasta. 95% of waiters I have encountered after being gluten free my whole life would have caught this and double checked but our waiter did not. When the dip came I saw the bread, and asked if they had tortilla chips or another gluten free option. The only thing they had were potato chips from the bar. It was okay but I was hopeful for a better gluten free option.

    This is one of our favour restaurant. We usually visit couple times a year. Food is great. Excellent Service . We are ordering Two adult meals and One kids meals. We Just order one but when the food is ready they already separate dishes for our two kids. I am very surprise for those kind of excellent services.

    I ordered tilapia from the special Winter menu. The regular menu used a cream sauce in preparing tilapia while the Winter menu stated that it was prepared with tomato and olive oil. The waiter brought my order and it had cream sauce on it. When I questioned it he was adamant that this was the order as advertised. I sent it back. To the restaurant's credit someone came over a couple of minutes later and explained that there was indeed an error made and that I was correct. I finally got what I ordered. Although I appreciated the fact that they apologized for their error, I was surprised that they didn't offer me any type of apologetic gesture like a free drink or dessert, etc. Also surprised the waiter wasn't familiar with the special menu.
