Food was good. Great service. Only concern I have is it is pretty noisy so conversation is difficult. After it emptied out a little, the noise level came down quite a bit.

This is a wonderful place, manager (owner?) is engaged, pays attention to customer needs with a smile, and the staff are sincerely helpful and responsive too. A diverse menu and very well prepared. People here care, both inside and outside of the kitchen. Love Gregorios!

Thank goodness for open table or I would’ve never found this place. Boyfriend wanted an Italian restaurant to celebrate his new job promotion. We had Marcus as a server. Very attentive service and the food was delicious. I was so full but I wanted to finish everything because it tasted so good. It wasn’t too loud and they had games and plenty of people at the bar. It was a great welcoming environment. We had Gregorios wings, the caprese, scampi, lasagna, the double chocolate cake and took a pizza to go. Will def be back!

The eggplant parmigiana was quite good, the sauce very tasty and the eggplant breaded perfectly. The veal marsala was almost perfect, tasty but just a little tough. The marsala sauce was exceptional. A pasta fagioli was very good; it could have been a little thicker but that is my preference. The service was exceptional, very friendly and attentive.

The restaurant was half full when arrived at 6:30 and within a half hour 3/4 full. Appeared to be a spot for returning locals—good sign. No appetizers but the bread was warm and delicious. I had the half chicken with mashed potatoes and asparagus which was heavenly. Lightly grilled on the outside and firm on the inside (not mushy). Seasoning was perfect. The chicken was warm and moist when served and cooked perfectly. The mashed potatoes were equally warm and flavorful. My friend got the ravioli and offered it was quite good. I plan to return.

It turned colder as the evening progressed in the out door dining area and they brought warm blankets for all the ladies. Very thoughtful, very impressive! The food and the service was superb and we will continue to enjoy many delicious meals in the future!

Great Italian food, very good price. the meal is generous and enough to take home for a second meal. It was a little too noisy for my taste, but every seat was taken and it obviously is very popular, but not the kind of place for an intimate dinner and evening talking.

When we arrived there were no tables available other than outside. Our heater ran out of oil and no one fixed it. Our waiter all but ignored us. When I wanted to bring my half full bottle of sparking water home the waiter put a used wine cork in it to seal it. When I confronted him with the fact that it was used he lied and said it was new. I pulled out the cork and the bottom of it was chewed up from the corkscrew. The food was acceptable but got very cold, very fast from sitting outside without a heater. I will never go back to this restaurant. Horrible experience.

A week later the manager refunded our money which we very much appreciated. Thank you for making it right.

I'd ever been here before and so it was nice to try the place. It' very busy and I suggest a reservation if you want to be seated when you arrive. The bar tender was our waiter so it was tough getting refills on drinks and things like salt and pepper and grated cheese on top of our pasta dishes. We had the Vodka Penne and Seafood Ravioli. The dishes were flavorful and well prepared; the service was off as the place was slammed and they don't have enough people to handle the crowd. Still, it was a good visit and I hope they can bring on more staff to accommodate the crowd. their prices are reasonable and our waiter was courteous, but you could tell he was frazzled as he had more patrons to account for then most. Worth a visit--go early or late!

I really like the owners and staff at Gregorio's. They are always friendly and welcoming even when very busy. Sadly I don't love the food always. I had gluten free ravioli and it came with about 6 ravioli and about a gallon of red sauce. When I mentioned to the waiter that it had way too much sauce he agreed and said to ask for very little sauce next time because they always serve way too much. It pretty much made me food unpleasant to eat but we didn't complain outside of that comment.

Word of warning - tell them either sauce on the side or VERY little. I normally like a good amount of sauce but this was pretty crazy. I am not a complainer but wanted to let others know before they had to deal with this. I would have liked them to comp the meal given that but again I didn't push it.

Amazing! Service was excellent-thank you Angela! Having the owner and manager check in on every table was a great touch and it was clear they cared about our experience.
The food was hot, made to order and overall a great time.
Can’t wait to go back.

The Fra Diavolo's spice level was enough to feel the heat, without overpowering the dish.

Excellent food. Outdoor area was fine. The waiter deserves a commendation for handling the entire outdoor area but keeping up with everything.

My only complaint was that the food was not served very hot. I think that especially pasta should be served on a plate too hot to touch.
The arugula pear/pecan salad is delicious!!

We went here on a Monday night - just for fun.
The food was delicious as always. Great pasta, chicken, fish, seasonings…. served hot and promptly. We sat outside due to Covid and found a nice new set-up with somewhat permanent walls shielding us a bit - enabling nice tables with table clothes and a bit of ambiance. We had a great time.

This was our first visit back in the past 15 months and we were pleasantly surprised at the quality and quantity of the dinner. We sat outside, under the tent, which was very comfortable. Service was great, food was great. We had pear salad, swordfish and veal parm. Plenty of leftovers too.
