Went with friends for the first time. They absolutely loved it. The waitress was very attentive. There was very nice music. Wonderful evening. I highly recommend for special occasions or just wonderful dining.
The chicken parmigiana I had was dry and uneatable!
No complaints about the food, very expensive, big groups with parents not supervising children properly, at times felt like we were at Chuck E Cheese’s
I had, that night, a dietary concern involving cheese which I couldn't eat because of my antibiotic. Michael, a new waiter, and the kitchen did everything to accommodate this. Instead of the delicious bread with mozz, I was given bread without the cheese. I also choose an entree that had mashed potatoes made, of course, with milk and butter. They substituted the mashed with lovely roasted potatoes that were so good! This is not the first time we have dined at Cucina Calandra and I am looking forward to my next meal where dietary concerns are not a factor. Always a wonderful meal and dining experience. Though Michael was new, we would not have known if he hadn't told us. He was very professional and we all agreed that this was not his first rodeo.
Overpriced and everything in heavy sauce. Waitress was attentive until she took the order and never came back until we were finished eating. Not around to order another drink with meal or asked if everything came out okay.
$26 for chicken parmigiana
Food was delicious service was very good. I always look forward to the bread served with dinner. Excellent stuffed with cheese. They always have a loaf of fresh bread at the door to take home. For the second time of having dinner there they were out, very disappointed. ☹️
Always delicious tasting food and great service. Will return real soon with family and friends.
Awesome meal from the bread to the Apple pie and ice cream dessert as well as delicious carrot cake
Saturday night--busy, I get it, but I had to chase the waitress down for her to take our order. The kids were able to order their pizza from the pizza chef and that was great fun, but they were already eating when we put our food order in. I would also say a little over priced for the entrees.
Always a great time, good food and superb ambience.. will definitely return.
Best cheesy garlic bread around
We had a great experience. The kids get to pick a character for Chef Henry to make their pizza into and they get to watch while it’s made! It kept them entertained while hubby and I could have a drink.
Great spot for the family
Great menu and great value (Pasta Tuesday - half price)
We had a wonderful gathering of old friends at Cucina Calandra. Restaurant was lovely, the service and food were terrific. Would definitely return and recommend !
red snapper out of this world flavor the bread the best
Great Italian comfort food and amazing service, as always!
We asked our server and the man who refilled our water glasses for a second loaf of their delicious bread but neither fulfilled our request. As a company who started as a bakery, it’s ironic that they would ration bread. In addition, our server never returned to refill the soda nor ask if we wanted a second glass of wine. She was notably absent but, no doubt, expected a 20% tip. Her lack of attentiveness ruined our dining experience.
Had pierogis, calamari, bruschetta with prosciutto, steak Fiorentina, seafood risotto, mushroom ravioli and a Stuffed Artichoke All were very good. The risotto was the star, exceptional, the artichoke was garlicky deliciousness, steak medium was perfect pink inside charred outside, the bruschetta was incredible. Everything was just great, service was great. We sat in the bar area, so they do double duty especially during happy hour, so if you want a dedicated wait staff choose the restaurant. I like the low-light in the bar area!!!!
The meal was great and the kids love Chef Henry. We did too
The food is amazing, I have been there many times and never disappointed
The food is great, I feel the pasta dishes are overpriced unless you go on a Tuesday night, 1/2 price pasta dishes and Calandra's wine. We always sit in the lounge its more cozy and quite, but the service is a little slow there, but that is a small price to pay, we really love the food.
Big dishes, fresh pasta, and cheesy bread. Perfect for this time of year. Service is always nice as well.
Very good food, atmosphere, great staff, plenty of room. The cheese bread and olive oil is fantastic. We buy their oil for home. Also their wine from their own vineyards in Sicily is superb.
Delicious & so nice to get a loaf of bread to take home.
Enjoyed our dinner vey much. Love the garlic cheese bread. Specials were great.
$10 to $15 to uncork your bottle of wine, crazy, very noisy, lots of kids
We have been to this restaurant several times. They have an excellent menu and the food has been delicious on each occasion. On Saturday the service was great and the wait staff was very accommodating to the needs of my grandson who has a nut and egg allergy. Great menu, delicious food and a courteous and accommodating wait staff - my family and I will keep coming back !
Delicious and I mean DELICIOUS tasting food. My favorite restaurant.
Excellent authentic Italian food. Wonderful hot Italian bread was brought to our table and was probably the best we have ever had at a restaurant. Daniel our waiter was terrific. He was attentive and knowledgeable. We were never rushed with our food and had reasonable time between each course. Service was above the usual with emphasis on little details. The Calandra Chianti was as good as any we had in Italy. This was our first visit to Cucina Calandra and we can't wait to go back there and take friends with us.
Chef Henry is great with the kids and gives them dough to play with
We have gone to Cucina Calandra many times. The food is always very good as is the service. The portions are generous and the mozzarella stuffed bread that is served to every table is so delicious. We would definitely recommend Cucina Calandra.
Food was good however my meal did not come out until almost the rest of our party (8) were finished and some of their meals were packed to go. Nothing was offered for the inconvenience.
Excellent food and service will definitely go back
FOR A BAKERY THE BREAD WAS VERY CHEWY AND HARD TO PULL APART. INSIDE BREAD VERY DRY NOT ENOUGH CHEESE AND BUTTER OR WHAT EVER THEY PUT INSIDE. PARTY OF 7 HAD 3 LOAVES OF BREAD ALL THE SAME
As always, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT. The same with the service!!!
Always like Cucina but this time our food took 1 1/2 hours to come out. Was unfortunate because we love the restaurant
We had a reservation for a special occasion with a special request. We arrived to the location, the place was empty yet we still waited 10 minutes until someone approached to us to be sorted, I mentioned I had a reservation and they did not bother to look into my reservation details and honor the special request that they said they could accommodate. The food came , it was horrible, Olive garden is way better and that’s not even an authentic Italian restaurant. That should say something about this place. Prices are beyond reasonable for the quality and taste of the food. For the $400 I spent, I could of went to a local grocery store and prepared myself and my guests better quality food than this place served us! I def would not recommend this place to anyone! Stay away and beware before you get scammed out of your money!
Excellent meal! Best food in town.
