Great food and great staff. One of our go to restaurants when we'd rather go out than cook. Decent portions; we always have leftovers to bring home.

We had reservations for a party of seven including two teens. The service was good and the food was, as usual quite good. One of the party suffers from celiac disease and we appreciate knowing that there is somewhere we can take our visitor that has several gluten free options.

I ordered Veal Marsala -veal was tough and kinda dry-I did not like it but took it home and reheated it a little but just did not taste like it should-I love this dish normally-otherwise the other three friends I was with loved their meals-
Hopefully just a one time thing-normally good place to eat-I do like and live near the Bridford avenue -Greensboro location and I like their food a touch better-
server wonderful-

The service is outstanding. Not sure I have ever seen food come out so quick and staff move so fast. The food frankly is ok at best. We found everything we had: soup, bread, salad, pasta and sauce to be just ok.

The eggplant parmigiana was awful! Paper thin eggplant and breading that was too dark and had an odd spice in it. Spaghetti side dish was a real “wet noodle.” Rotisserie chicken was over cooked. It’s really hit or miss. We really had a “miss.”

Our food was delicious. It had so much flavor! On the other hand, our server was nice but NEVER attended to us. Our pizza was wrong but the server didn't come back to our table for over 5 minutes which is a long time when your order is well... wrong. We were starving so we let it go. It seemed as though the other tables were much for important than us. Not sure if it's because we look younger or what but unfortunately due to the poor service multiple times we have come we will be going out of our way to try the Lawndale location.

We had a 7:15 reservation that we arrived for at 7:10. We checked in and the hostess told us it would be 10 to 15 minuets so we took a seat in the waiting area. At 7:30 I went up to check if we were close to being seated, after noticing people that got there after us were being seated before us. At 7:30 the hostess told me there was 1 more table of 2 in front of us then we were going to be seated. We watched 3 more groups of people that arrived after us be seated before us. We got up and left around 7:45. We went across the street to Blue Agave and were seated immediately and had some of the best service. Blue Agave has good food, atmosphere and is quick. We probably will not go to Elizabeth’s for a while.

The pizza and Stromboli are always great! I had Chicken Parmigiana this time, and it was really tasty, though it was a tad too salty. My husband had Linguine & Clams with white wine sauce - he thought it was bland and wasn't a big fan of the white wine sauce (thought it would have been better with marina sauce). However, we will definitely be back. Awesome.

I'm not usually one to leave a bad review, I usually just chalk it up to experience and avoid that restaurant in the future. But, I've had good experiences with Elizabeth's locations elsewhere. I have no ill will toward Elizabeth's but somebody really needs to pay attention to the training of waitstaff on North Battleground, so here goes.

I got together with old friends who I hadn't seen in a while, they live in Greensboro, I live well north near Belews Lake, so North Battleground Elizabeth's seemed like a good fit. We arrived and were seated immediately, I had a reservation but none was needed as the restaurant was half empty on a Saturday night. Other than this, first hint that something might be amiss was seemingly minor. We ordered cocktails and an appetizer. I ordered vodka tonic with lime, call vodka, Ketel One since that's what they had. Server mispronounced it. Same with the appetizer ordered next. Caprese, that was a little more annoying because it seemed as if she thought she was correcting me in calling it "Caprice."

But, the really irritating and disappointing thing was, I splurged a little and ordered their filet mignon special. I tend to like a sort of Pittsburgh style, seared on the outside, mid-rare within but that seems to stymie a lot of people so I just ordered it mid-rare to medium and asked that it be lightly seared on the outside. She seemed to understand. But, then the food arrives, the filet was not prepared in the manner requested, it was butterflied and medium well at best, not seared.

Very disappointing. Given the apparent ignorance of our server (despite her being a seemingly bright person otherwise, sort of mystifying), I blame her and not the kitchen.

Whoever is responsible for training waitstaff there is falling down on the job, she did not seem new. I think I understand why that Elizabeth's was half empty on a Saturday night. None of the others I've visited would have been.

Apologies, but I felt it was necessary to write this.

Our waitress needed additional training. Didn't bring enough plates for the number of people at our table. She reached in front of us to serve others. Again, not enough plates for entrees and when she finally brought them, after talking with others for awhile, the ones she brought were very cold. Asked if we needed anything, but kept on walking past us. Embarrassing for us as we had guests with us.

Very disappointed in the food and service. We were there on a busy Friday night and our waiter was so stressed. He didn't know what he was doing most of the time and had no manners towards his guest. Very unprofessional. The food tasted like it was out of cans or frozen section at the super market. So flavorless and bland. Nothing good here...skip it.

Elizabeth's pizza is a small town local joint. It's fun. We wen with our family of 12 after a day at the waterpark. The pizza was amazing. The wine list can be improved. I was given a glass of wine that should have been dumped after 3 days in an open bottle.

Elizabeth's is a great place for good Italian food at reasonable prices. Their servings are huge so bring an appetite, a friend, or plan on a to-go box. This is a good place for families with numerous large tables and a children's menu. All of the classic Italian dishes as well as pizza by the pie or slice.
