Food was bland. Service slow. Sat on a bridge chair. Table was so close to the swinging kitchen door. Tables so close together that one of my guests hair was pulled every time someone passed

This was not our first time at The Touch of Italy. We had a good time and the food was outstanding. When we first got to the restaurant, we had to wait about 15 minutes before being seated. This was due to the New Year Eve reservation schedule. When we first sat down, the nose level was at the point, were we could not hear each other talk, but the nose level did get better after about an hour. All in all, we did have a good time.

Pasta was cooked perfect the Alfredo sauce was bland, chicken (witch is an up charge) was a processed chicken breast that was microwaved.
Other dish served at the table was penna in a blush sauce, pasta once again was cooked perfect, Added chicken to that dish as well and it was the same exact as mentioned before.
2 meals, 1 draft beer, no apps or desert was $65.42. For the quality of the food way over priced. The restaurant was clean and staff was polite. It was our first visit there and we were looking forward to a great Italian meal. instead we got a slightly better version of a frozen microwaveable meal that you can purchase at the frozen section of a grocery store.

The food was a little cold but still good. The hostess weren’t very helpful when we asked how long the wait time was going to be. They said reservation only and didn’t asked if we wanted to make a reservation like they were all booked up. After walking out I took a chance and looked on open table and seen there was plenty of availability. We made a reservation and then came back in to have dinner. If we hadn’t checked on open table then we would of had dinner somewhere else. It was a poor business move by the hostess. I would say I’ve been here many times and the hostess aren’t the best. I’ve had poor service here a few times but overall the food and the experience is usually good.

We love it here and usually love our Christmas Eve dinner here as well. Sadly, this year was just average. I ordered the fish salad solely because it had cod in it, a tradition in my family. My serving was 90% squid and I got no cod. It was so busy that by the time our waiter came to check on us I had eaten the salad because I was hungry. Shrimp bisque was watery and lacked sherry, seafood ravioli were frozen ravioli with a sub par sauce. Truly NOT up to par for touch.

1st I opened the menu and it was inundated with food, enough to fall out into my lap. I had to take it to the host to get one without food. He apologized. No worries. Waitress came after a little bit. Service was fine at that point. The room they sat us in was cold, and closed off from the main room . We were a party of 3. Another table in the room had a party of 5. Same waitress for both.
Then the only other table in the room was seated with a party of 12, same waitress. At that point anything we needed became a long wait. This waitress received no help from any other staff member. She not only had the 12, 5 and us but a deuce in the other room, it was ridiculous how she had to juggle all that herself. Bottom line , 3 people 2 hours and 10 minutes. Food was ok but not spectacular as the prices would imply.
Service was terrible not due to the hard working server but the management, bus boys and other servers who literally never stepped a foot into the room except to one time fill water glasses. Never again TofI too many other fantastic Italian Restaurants in the area. I tried, you failed

Had a concert in Atlantic City Saturday night and every casino restaurant expects you to skip paying your mortgage if you want to eat in their place which is why I searched Open Table for a restaurant just outside the city. I'm so glad we did. The food was incredible and the server was friendly, fast and in general, awesome. Lots of free parking, plenty of room for my group of 6 and the bill was more than reasonable. Some reviews mentioned small portions but my entire party felt the portion sizes were perfect (and we are a family of good eaters). Don't forget to look at the desert tray! The lemon cello cake and my cappuccino was amazing! I would definitely go back.

Haven’t been there in years, for no particular reason, but had good memories. We took my daughter and son-in-Law. Made reservations which didn’t matter because there wasn’t a table at that time. Seated about 10 minutes after reservation time. Service was nothing special. It took quite awhile until the server even came to ask for our order. Slow getting the bread out. My pasta was very dry, which they blamed on the capellini. After a few minutes they finally brought some extra sauce. My daughter had pizza, which she enjoyed. My wife and son-in-law each enjoyed their meals. I felt as though the waiter was rushed and may have had too many tables.

We have been to A Touch of Italy many times and they have never let us down. From the appetizers to the dinner specials we have always been impressed by how GOOD everything is. The bartenders know how to make all drinks, not just the latest.The service is always unobtrusively attentive. And the Tiramisu is our gold standard we compare all others against. Do yourself a favor and make a reservation!

My meal was good and so was my lemon drop martini. However, for the price we paid for all 8 of us, we should not have left hungry. My husband's french fries looked like they were counted out...I've never been to an Italian restaurant where I didn't have any leftovers!

I have been eating at the Touch of Italy for over twenty years. It has been a while since my last trip their, but the chef made my specialty meal exactly as he used to and it was as excellent as always - Angel Hair Pasta with a Lobster Tail and Calamari covered with Very Spicy Arrabbiata sauce.

Thanks,
