Only regret: the weather was too cold to enjoy our meal in the Italian Garden. Can't wait to return and dine Al fresco. Thank-you for far exceeding my expectation!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Mother's DayMy husband and I brought our mothers for brunch on Mother's Day and we all walked away happy. The food and service were fabulous. We had items off the regular lunch menu as well as the special brunch menu, and everything we tried was excellent. The prices were very fair, the portions were satisfying and the restaurant itself is interesting. We will certainly go back and do recommend Iozzo's to all.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's day brunchI have been to Iozzo's 2 or 3 times before, their food is always excellent. The only problem I had with this trip was that although the brunch tasted very good I felt like the amount of food we got for our money was a little lacking compared to other items I have ordered off the menu in the past. Next time I go back I will definitely decide to order from their regular menu.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA Mother's Day Gem!Just a wonderful surprise awaited us when we arrived for the 1st time on Mother's Day 2013. Great service, different breakfast gems and ambience that over-whelmed us. We will definately be baaaack!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Little Italian RestaurantGood food, good service, good atmosphere.

Didn't feel rushed and totally enjoyed ourselves.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPre-Race Carb loadWe enjoyed the evening. Elizabeth our server was great.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great night for diningWe had another great night of dining, choosing to sit outside in the garden patio area on a warm night. Two of us tried the fish special (Monkfish) while my wife chose the chicken piccata. All were good. From the fresh warm bread served with spiced tomatoes to the creme brulee (or spumoni ice cream) for dessert, the food was well prepared. Good service too from Jill.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBeen there many times andBeen there many times and the service, food and ambiance is always outstanding!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWas in town for a show andWas in town for a show and couldn't find anywhere else to get my group of 10. The reviews were fantastic, so I thought I'd give it a shot although with some trepidation since I knew nothing about it. What a GREAT PLACE! Everyone in my group loved their meal and said we had to go there again next year when we come to the show again... Thank!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a reservation so I wasHad a reservation so I was seated upon arrival. Greeted promptly by server who brought water. My friends hadn't arrived yet but I was given the menu to review (no pressure to order). Jill (server) was friendly. Meal was very good (had eaten here a few times before) and we ordered a speciality coffee which was delicious after dinner. Excellent restaurant! Can't wait for warmer weather to sit in the courtyard! Restaurant was busy but dinner arrived in an appropriate length of time. Like the energy of a full busy place!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe wine, the appetizer, andThe wine, the appetizer, and entree were perfect. Not my first time here and will not be my last.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMBring back the shrimp :)Chef Kathy's menus are wonderful and her kitchen first rate! I do wish the shrimp she did for Lent would become permanent as an appetiser but the desserts more than made up for that and the main courses were delicious :)4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial occasion destinationIozzo's always delivers a great meal. We like to go there for a special night out. A little bit expensive for a normal weeknight but definitely worth it for a special treat. Only one word of caution, ask the price of a special before ordering it. A friend in our group got the seafood special and was rather surprised when it arrived and was more expensive than my filet mignon. All in all, a great restaurant and we will definitely be back.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service, and I feelExcellent service, and I feel like the food was both delicious and authentic.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was my 1st time diningIt was my 1st time dining - it was a good expierence. The apps were great ; mussels and scallops Didn't care for the Lasanga but the Piedmiont Chicken was very flavorable and the gnocchi was perfect. Our server was very nice and accomodating with the timing of the food.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBEST ITALIAN IN TOWNThe best Italian in town.. definitely gourmet Italian.

And the service is awesome4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was outstanding andThe food was outstanding and the service felt very personal. I highly recommend the scallop appetizer, lobster ravioli, and caramel brownie for dessert. The only thing I'd skip is the caesar salad - the house salad is much better and no upcharge. Overall, I had a wonderful experience at Iozzo's!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable Dining ExperienceMy husband and I enjoyed our experience at Iozzo's, especially since we were. Celebrating our wedding anniversary. We will definitely go back.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great meal/eveningAlways a great meal/evening with friends at Iozzo's. Love to enjoy the new menu items also.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place!Love this place, especially when the weather is goo because they have the best courtyard! Food is wonderful, we had steaks this time which we wouldn't normally do at an Italian restaurant and they were spot on! Best house wine around and the rest of the wine list is wonderful too! Servers are so friendly and half of them are family, so they really care about you having a great experience.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMCyndiWe very much enjoyed our dinner at Iozzo's (as usual). We were delighted with the number of prom groups (my dinner guests were my sister and 15 year old niece). We were thrilled with a Groupon that made this a much more affordable dinner (this is a pricey location - but well worth it). The Piedmont menu was wonderful. We will be back when the weather improves and we can dine outside!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second time visitingThis was our second time visiting Iozzo's. we had a great time. We like the quaintness and family-orientation of the restaurant. The food is great & Iozzo's is able to make several dishes vegetarian style which is important to us. We are looking forward to going back and trying out the outside dining option. Thanks!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMTucked away in an older partTucked away in an older part of the city that the locals know well. This place has delicious Italian cuisine with a chef that knows the regions of Italy well. We had a wonderful time trying new options and also ordering some classics. Wonderful time.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a Groupon that includedHad a Groupon that included shared appetizer, two entrees and two drinks. Was able to order one of the most expensive items on the menu, which was delicious. Waiter was knowledgeable. Restaurant was busy and noise level was very loud but it is a nice atmosphere otherwise. Did have to request water refills but waiter was very busy with full tables.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI love the toasted ravioli!I love the toasted ravioli! Excellent service! Always offered ground pepper or fresh grated parmesan for salads and pasta dishes. Group lunch and everyone's meal was great from soups/salads to entrees.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to go with friends!My husband and I visited with two other couples--great restaurant for this size group! We started with the antipasto plate to share. Our server was knowledgeable and patient with our questions about the menu.Great selections on it, but next time we'd order two plates for six people! Three of us had the Halibut, bronzed, which was still spicy, but pleasantly tempered by our choice of polenta as opposed to other starch choices. Although halibut is a meaty fish, two of us thought the portion was small--but delicious! Our dessert choices were Lemoncello creation, a brownie with ice cream, and of course, spumoni--all excellent. We had regular coffee, which was so-so, but I love a strong coffee and I did have a second cup :)4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were good. Hated to see that the best waiter is no longer there4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDate nightOne of the best meals I have ever had. Service was great. Food superb. We discovered this gem for our anniversary last year. Great couples night out! Would also be a fun place to go with friends.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWanted to be away from theWanted to be away from the convention crowd but not too far away to have a private business meeting with good food. This place fit the bill! Great food, good service & we could talk comfortably.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMReal ItalianEven our true Italian friends like this restaurant and think that it tastes authentic - tough to do!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMI selected Iozzo's GardenI selected Iozzo's Garden of Italy for several reasons. 1) It's Italian. 2) They had a reservation available for Easter Sunday at my desired time. 3) I went to school with an Iozzo - John - and was curious if the Iozzo's who opened the restaurant were one and the same (they are).
Service: Was great, attentive, with one exception - apparently we were supposed to get bread (as one would expect at any Italian place) - we didn't.
Food: Chicken Parmesan - Excellent. Daughter and mom-in-law both loved it. Spag w/marinara - Good. With meatballs - better. loved the meatballs. Personal taste, could have used a bit more sauce on the pasta, but that's just me.
Overall a great experience - even saw John I...3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEven though they were busy,Even though they were busy, service was great and the food was wonderful as always.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGolly but I love this place!We did a departure from our typical fare at Iozzo's and had a series of appetizers for dinner. What a delight! Our only problem was ordering too much food -- portions were definitely generous. The antipasto was excellent, with hidden gems throughout the plate. Stuffed mushrooms were moist and had a full, robust flavor. Lovely pizza, with huge hunks of sausage. Every dish would have been a great entree on its own, but we thoroughly enjoyed the diversity of the meal. As usual, Justin's service was perfection personified.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMShrimp apetizer was very tasty IShrimp apetizer was very tasty

We'll be back.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMChoices!xcellent as always...a champ for a chef and some great eats. The Zozo shrimp are a nice addition and I love their spumoni but now they have added a sea salt brownie so what a dilemma when it comes to dessert time!3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDevour Downtown earlyLoved that Iozzo's started Devour Downtown early.
