food was excellent. Bread was obviously delicious.
My husband and I were so impressed by Calandras. We loved everything about Caladras and we will definitely be back. My parents were born in Italy and the food reminded me so much of my mothers homemade cooking. We will definitely be back with our kids
Delicious home made pasta
Food was excellent! Servers were very attentive. Really enjoyed my meal and look forward to going again.
Delicious tasting food. Excellent service. Great ambiance.
Bobby is a great server
My neice and I ordered the NY Strip steak and we found it to be not of great quality. It had alot of cartilage in it. We understand its not a steak house but atleast they can try and give their customers a decent piece of steak. Otherwise eveything else was fine. As for service. I ask our waiter for a glass of soda to go alone with my dessert but he never brought it out. My sister asked for a lemon he never brought it out. We had to ask him a second time. We ordered a hamburger to go and we waited about 20 mins before asking him about the burger and he said sorry i forgot to bring it out. A little disappointed in the service.
The restaurant has a nice ambiance and great specials on Tuesdays! Food is always great and we love to hit up the bakery after!
Great all-around experience. Our waitress was amazing, the food was fantastic, and the restaurant is beautiful.
The food was very good as usual, never have had a bad meal. Service is great and you can get some great food to take home from the bakery and market.
Slow service. Chicken Parm dry and very overlooked. Couldn't even cut it. Very disappointing.
Another great visit to Calandra's IL Vecchio Cafe. Our Filet Mignon prepared by Chef Michael was outstanding. It looked and tasted just as DELISH as the Calandra's instagram picture. Our server Vinnie was so accommodating and wonderful. Always a pleasure. Chef Francesco is so creative with his specials and he is great addition to the team. We enjoyed getting to know the new manager, Silvio as well. Everyone at Calandra's ALWAYS makes us feel like family so we come here often. Looking forward to seeing what new dishes, bakery treats, desserts and new entertainment 2018 will bring.
Hadn’t been back there in a while. Disappointed. Overpriced for what it is.
Our server, John, was a huge stand out for our date/celebration. John was so accommodating to a few of my issues. I saw the belinis were listed by the picture with the mimosas so I though it was made with the traditional peach/strawberry pulp. John followed up with the bar that it can be made by the flute and filled my order- but it was made with peach schnapps! John was great with taking it back and even agreeing it was overtly sweet. John continually checked in on us through the night. He also remedied a bill discrepancy for the sides without any issue- he's a real rockstar. We loved our food- spinach salad, grilled octopus , risotto and veal saltimbocca. We weren't crazy about the hashbrowns underneath the octopus- some grilled vegetables would have been a better compliment. We were happy with plenty of space, not loud and not rushed dining experience. We also loved stopping by the bakery with the 20% off for some treats to bring home- the girls at the bakery were also very accommodating.
Looking forward to returning for another great dinner...! The service and food was excellent...!
We love Francisco’s food
Very nice place to go for dinner or spend the night by there bar. The food is always good and the service is usually too. Just had a bad waiter this time around.
Went to Il Vecchio Café at Calandra's for lunch. What a deal. $14.95 for salad or soup, main course (sandwiches, etc.), a large cannoli and coffee or tea. I had a salad (great dressing), a veal parm sandwich, the cannoli and coffee. Everything was delicious. Dining room is very nice looking and not crowded at lunch time.
Food is very good. Service is good. Everyone is friendly. The ambience needs work though... It's pretty and very appropriately themed, however, it's crowded and the tables are close together. The chairs are uncomfortable. It's a good spot to have drinks and dinner with family or friends but not for a romantic night out....
Have been wanting to get to this restaurant for years and finally went. Food was amazing and atmosphere gorgeous. We had a great dinner and will definitely be coming back.
