    First time here and it won't be last. The ambiance was very nice. Felt like we were eating in Italy. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. The salad was crisp and fresh. House dressing was excellent. Veal Marsala was excellent. Best marsala sauce I ever had. The seafood over pasta with scallops and shrimp in a spicy brandy sauce was great. The raspberry cheese cake was to die for. Very creamy and tasty. I will make a point of going back here again.

    Our three meals were delicious and outdone by the friendly waitress and staff. They remained very friendly even though they were busy on a Thursday night; probably a normal activity level. It was our first time but certainly not our last.

    I don't dine out in Hamilton (other than Rats) too often, but was told this is a good place by a colleague. I know there are many pizza places that serve entrees in this area. Most are good to pretty good. This one I'd actually call very good, 3 1/2 to 4 stars on the quality of their food. Some things are made in house, some purchased elsewhere (like the creamy dressing on my salad). It all tasted pretty good. They also give a lot of food, so it's probably a plus for families with teenagers. I dined by myself on a pasta starter, a pork dish, and was told salad came with it. Too much food, but for $35 (with tip) it's reasonable. It's good, traditional Italian food. If not fine dining, for a casual night out it would be a good choice.

    We have been here several times for special occasions, birthdays, high school graduation, hanging out with friends, etc. We always have a great time. The food is excellent and the staff are great at timing your expedience so they are always there but never feel intrusive or rushing. And because it's a BYOB, you definitely have the wine or beer that you prefer without the added cost on the bill. Definitely a great choice. This visit was for my father in laws 89th birthday, and even my mother-in-law enjoyed everything, including dessert!

    Four of us dined at Iccara for a birthday celebration. We all had eaten there many times. As usual, the food was excellent. What was more impressive was the continuing changes in the menu that prove both interesting and tasty. I had arctic char which was exceptional in a mango sauce !!

    Been dining at Iccara since shortly after John added the dining room. The atmosphere and wait staff are extremely friendly and the kitchen is willing to satisfy requests for specific dishes if possible. We've celebrated birthday parties here and love to introduce the restaurant to family when they visit from out of town. Mostly, Bill and I enjoy coming in for dinner on the weekend whether it's one of the specials or a menu item that we've had before and enjoy. You all aim to make it a relaxing experience.

    I took my parents to this restaurant for Father's Day. Both are in their 80s, and both physically disabled. The staff was extremely kind and accomodating. Service was excellent, and the food was teriffic. Believe me, it is very hard to please both a "foodie" like myself and two seniors. We had a great experience, and will return in the near future.

    We love dining at Iccara. The Calamari Zola is always perfect. Each entree comes with a house salad but tonight some of us had the Primevara salad which was great. The chicken special the night we dined was fantastic- Sweet Potato and Zucchini crusted in a Demi glaze, the flavor was exceptional. As always the rigatoni vodka was excellent as was the Salmon pignoli. We always enjoy coming here.

    This family run business is worth the experience. The food is excellently prepared and we have been going there many years. We have never had a bad meal. Highly recommend trying. It is a bit noisy when fully occupied, but the excellent service and great food overcome any noise issues. The prices are moderate, but the experience is well worth it.

    The food was amazing! I tried risotto for the first time, and I couldn't get enough of it. Also had a stuffed pork chop that was VERY good. Didn't expect there to be so many kids, but besides small kids being kids, the whole experience was really great. Will definitely be back soon!

    It's been a while since we visited, but as always, it was a good experience. The mussels were great as an appetizer, very tender. The only thing I would say is that the food could have arrived at the table a little hotter. But, it was delicious all the same. This is always a reliable spot for a good meal.

    This unassuming neighborhood Italian has the best pizza in the area, even beating some of the nearby Chambersburg transplants. I had been enjoying Iccara's pizza for some time, but since my wife picks it up on her way I only recently visited the restaurant in person. My wife and I went for dinner in the lovely restaurant side with scenic hand-painted murals. Iccara is all you hope for in a neighborhood Italian, but better. The seafood dishes are to savor. I had salmon done perfectly set on a bed of spinach. Last time I had a delicious special, Zuppa di Pesce. I haven't yet ventured into their non-seafood plates. Oh, and the sausage-stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer are worth it even if only to dip the bread into the luscious sauce! Yum!

    My wife and I have dined at Villagio Iccara numerous times and have consistently been happy with the food and service. However our latest time we found the food to be below average and the service poor. The flounder specials were not good and were over seasoned. The pork fasciolino dish, which is my wife's favorite, was extremely dry. Not sure if there was another chef in the kitchen that night. The restaurant was not crowded (about 50% full) yet we waited over an hour before we were served our appetizers. We were seated at 6:45pm yet our server did not come to our table until 40 minutes later. I was about to leave but decided to be a bit patient. It was disappointing in as much we had brought our daughters and future son in law.

    Cozy place with excellent food and service! Beautiful interior, friendly staff, and great menu options keep me coming back. Best calamari I've ever had and every veal dish is a winner! Staff is very accommodating if you want to bring the kids but has a nice romantic ambiance as well. 45 min drive for myself but well worth it, and BYOB seals the deal. Can't wait till next time!
