This is our "go to" restaurant for calamari en casserole but this time was disappointing. Asked for the pasta on the side with marinara sauce so that the calamari is in a separate dish with its own sauce. It came as a single platter & when the server realized the mistake she took it back. Thinking that a completely new meal would be returned we were surprised to have the original platter of pasta and then a small soup size bowl with the calamari but no extra sauce - obviously it had just been scooped off the top of the pasta. This has never happened before and we should have discussed it with the owners at the time.

Bartenders were the worst I have seen in a while. Never noticing us even though they were busy sitting for maybe 5-7 minutes. Did not see us at all! Even to pay the bill they had to be flagged down. Took a while for that as well. Server was just ok, nice enough but forgot sides for two of us although we did not say anything because we did not really need them. Was surprised at this. Food was very good and atmosphere was nice. Might try again

My only concern was that we had a 6:15 reservation made on OpenTable and when I went to the hostess she informed me it would be about a 15 minute wait which turned into over 20 minutes. I can understand if I have a 7:00 reservation that I might have to wait for someone who is taking a long time with dinner, but at 6:15 I wouldn't think that should be an issue. Either you are booking too many reservations or not timing correctly. Food is good with a nice salad and bread included. I'll go back, but "early bird" !

Touch of Italy is our "go to" place to eat! The food is consistently very good. The sevice is responsive yet not intrusive. It is an great value too! My personal favorite is the eggplant rollatini! I often compare Touch of Italy's version to others and they always come out a winner!

The house salad dressing was very tasty - I believe salad is included with every meal, which is great. Our entire party enjoyed our meals. I had a chicken dish that includes prosciutto, eggplant and mozzarella in a light cream sauce that was delicious. We had an 8:00 reservation for 6 on a Friday night but still had to wait a bit. And our server was very busy and it took a while for him to come over but he did apologize, promise to be with us shortly, which he was, and the service was fine from then on. They seemed to have a good amount of large parties to take care of. The desserts are made by a local baker and were excellent also. I highly recommend the chocolate heaven - it was heavenly :)

My second time here and again was not disappointed went with my parents and sat at a booth at the bar. The music was excellent. Food and drink service were well done. Love the chicken pastine and the chicken escarole soup. Can't say enough about the waiter he was excellent and very attentive considering how busy it was at 630. Definitely going back and well worth the price. Keep up the great work

Delicious Italian Cuisine ! Tomato Mozzarella salad to start, some Mozzarella sticks as well, very good. Chicken Pastina was just ok, probably wouldn't order it again. Lasagna was good, could have used a little extra sauce but overall a good meal. Price was average for the food ordered. Cocktails were ok, not great. Service was very good. Definitely recommend and will return.

We love Touch of Italy. I don’t know if it is the same owners, but we were going back when it was in a shopping center. Always one of those places you can count on a good meal whether with family, young and old; and as a couple or out with friends.
I would’ve given all five stars, but there was a problem. The waitress was actually very sweet, so the problem with the service I don’t believe was her fault. It seems that they had a big party, and weren’t able to accommodate that party as well as everyone out in the restaurant. We had a two-year-old with us. Thankfully she is easy to occupy as our reservation was at seven and we got seated shortly after. But we were still eating dinner at 9 o’clock. We ordered a plain pasta dish for her. It was a much later night than expected with a little one. No matter what else is being served I don’t think that should’ve taken long.
I will definitely be back as it is always one of our Consistently good restaurants. But I will be very disappointed if this happens again

Our server was awesome. Food was great but we almost walked out due to the rudeness of the hostess. Had a reservation for eight people for 7:00. Seven of my party showed up at 6:45 and spoke to a gentleman and he said it would be a few minutes to seat us. I arrived at 7:00 and saw my party at the bar and went over to them. I then went and talked to the female hostess and told her I had a reservation She asked my name and she said “you had a 7:00 reservation”. I said that’s correct. I then asked her the time and she said “it’s 7:03 and we are very busy now” I laughed thinking she was joking but she wasn’t. I then went back to the bar and told the group what she just said. Everyone wanted to go to the library restaurant and we were all leaving but we saw the gentleman who my group originally saw at 6:45. He apologized and set a table immediately. I’m glad we stayed. The er er was awesome and the food was delicious. Our group of 8 men go out every other week and because of the hostess we wouldn’t return here and that’s a shame.
