Appeared servers were more interested in clearing out restaurant so they could clear out of work.

I always love Gorozzos but this time neither my husband or I liked our meals. Of course, the house salad is always terrific! However my ravioli stuffed with shrimp, crab and lobster was subpar and not creative at all. In fact I got a stomach ache in the middle of the night. My husband got the Triple play~thought it would be the 3 separate dishes side by side. Instead they were all stacked on top of each other. He brought home 75% of it and never touched it again. Well go back but order their specialties. These two dishes were subpar.

Delicious Italian meal with a great 1/2 price bottle of wine on Sunday evening. Enjoyed by all the family. Food was excellent, with enough to take home lunch the next day.
Cozy comfortable table seating and friendly no hurry service.

Took friends there for one of their birthdays. They offer free Spiedini on your birthday and he wanted Italian so it seemed perfect since he had never been there before so I made reservations. Still had to wait about 15 minutes. That's okay. Poor service, rude servers and cold food was an embarrassment for my wife and I in suggesting and taking our guests there. They haven't been real warm and fuzzy in there and we thought that maybe that's their mafia /gangsta wannabe image they portray but they almost made us feel just too uncomfortable when we brought up my guest's birthday. I told them they would want to verify his birthday with his license and she hammered it because anybody could come in here saying it was their birthday and try to get a free meal. Okay, we get it. Not a biggy but I think that must have put us a the bottom of the list for service because the food was cold and took forever. We always get a artichoke for the table and this time it was small. cold and very little butter on it. It was actually dry. She kept bringing up the license thing a few times and he kept telling her he would give it to her each time but she left with other tables items in her hands. Good food served cold makes bad food. Inexcusable. The server didn't bring entrees table side so something was weird about the whole thing. We had 3 other entrees and appetisers plus a couple cocktails each so it wasn't like we were going on the cheap. I've always liked the the food at Garozzo's but less and less each time. More than not we've fared poorly with pleasant servers for years now. The one on 135th lasted just a couple years but no surprise. I also know it's not always the servers fault but poor management. Sorry to the few really nice servers we've had there over the years. Too many other Italian food alternatives close by. I hope they get it together. The competition will be our next Italian delight. Thanks for the good years Garozzo's.

Typically a quiet romantic atmosphere, Saturday we were seated at a booth in the bar. This allowed us to watch football and our kids to let loose a little. Same great food/service we keep going back for.

I took my wife here for her birthday on a busy Friday night. There was a short delay for reservations which did not personally bother me but had the panties of several of the snooty upper class patrons all in a bunch. These people were insufferable drunks, and the staff deserved better. The service was terrific and the food was delicious. My wife received a complimentary dessert and her meal was free since it was her birthday. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Mediocre Italian food. Great salads though. Dark cold atmosphere. Not great service. Lots of people working to serve, take orders, make drinks, bus tables, yet our dinner took 2 hours. There’s too many other places to eat to go back here.

One of our favorite local spots. We haven’t found a dish we don’t love on the menu. We will always return. Service tonight was slow due to homecoming but the waitress was so nice and manager gave us free desserts.

The only thing I would change is to be able to be seated even if all your party is not there yet. Why can’t people be seated and enjoy a drink while waiting?

The wait staff was very busy, but very professional. There was a group of about 50 high school students eating before a homecoming party and that made for a very loud dining room. That was our only concern. The staff did a very good job considering such a large group at one time. The food was excellent.

Always good, knowing the specialties is a plus. Great place to try something new- spegetti or lazangia is good but Spedini's and Italian Steaks are unique and awesome. Great place to "leave your comfort zone" and get great Italian food 🥘.

They need to do something about the noise level in the restaurant at dinner time. The music in the bar area (where we were seated) was so loud, we couldn't even have a conversation. They turned it down for us, but one song later, someone turned it back up, again.

The Chicken Spiedini Georgio my wife and I had was overcooked and dried out a bit. The Veal Parmigaino my Mom had was tough and hard to cut. Food was a bit disappointing, which is usually not the case.
