Food was decent but service lacking as were seemingly understaffed. At that price point, I feel there are better options out there.

What a disappointment. First, I didn't need a reservation which is not a major concern but they don't even use a hostess - seat yourself. That's still not a problem but after seating myself, I got the feeling I was interrupting something. I never felt welcome and seemed urged to leave as soon as possible. The cheese sticks were tasteless, the marinara was like water, the pasta carbonara was not thoroughly cooked and the tea was like pool water. Don't go. The Mall Friday's for lunch the next day was 100 times better.

Very handicap and family friendly. The lasagna is great. Sis & BiL loved their salmons. Nephew enjoyed his personal pizza. I enjoyed my Fettucini Alfredo. Reasonable prices are a bonus.

We avoided this place since it looked like a chain restaurant. It isn't but the food and service are just like one. Prices are higher than a chain though. Salads are good. Good drink selection. Food is varied. But the execution is just not good. Flavorless. Have you heard of spices other than salt? We won't be back.

Another great experience. Food was delicious. The only thing is they brought adult size drinks for our kids and I sent them back for kid sized.

This was our first experience at this restaurant. It was a lot smaller than I thought it would be BUT the food was amazing. Everything was sooo good. We left with full bellies even my 9 year old who is always hungry. If it wasn't 30 minutes away from our house, we would be visiting it a lot more. We were surprised at the bill though. The side salad wasn't included with the meal and that was not told to us beforehand. The waiter just asked if we wanted a side salad. Even though we were only a family of 4 a 20% gratuity was automatically included. This will not stop us from going back. We will keep all of this in mind.

This is our second time visiting Gregorio's. The food is good -- the appetizers were great (muscles and calamari). The muscles in marinara on both occasions were some of the best around. Saturday is also half price bottle of wine night -- unheard of for a weekend so thanks for that! The portions are huge -- too much for almost anyone to eat in one seating so plan for leftovers. The place is kind of big and seems more like a post-soccer game hangout, but it is good for a Saturday night dinner with friends too. The servers are all working hard, but there's something wrong there -- not enough of them or they are overstretched so that items come slowly and requests for more water, etc. happen regularly. Grated parm was never offered (same for coffee and dessert -- not that we had room, but it would have been nice to be asked). It's symptomatic of a pizza post-soccer place that they're under staffed. We will go again though so as long as you are aware, enjoy!

Should not be missed. Real Northern Italian food that will satisfy beyond words. My favorite is the Veal Piccata . My husbands is the Bolagnese. We also love the meat tray appetizer. One of these days (5 years later) I will make it to dessert.

We had the Valentine Special. The waiter could not explain the choices.

we were charged extra for our choices. We had to ask for plates twice and water twice.
Waiter was in a hurry most of the time and never asked how we were doing. When we needed sometime, we had to flag him down.

Great little place, with wonderful people. Great for a casual dinning. The veal was great as well as all the appetizers that we had. The only knock, we wish they had a better wine list.

Food, as always, was good - and our server was particularly attentive, friendly, and courteous. It has a neighborhood feel and it is easy to unwind there after a tough day. This remains our local "go to" place for casual Italian comfort food.

We've been looking for a neighborhood Italian restaurant that is friendly, decent food, professional servers at a reasonable price that is not in RTC. Gregorio's fits the bill nicely. A group of 5 of us went on a recent Saturday night after some other reservations fell through. Seated promptly -- dining room is a bit bright and loud but nicely decorated. We tried several seafood appetizers (fresh and not overcooked), pasta dishes and pizza as well as a white and red wine selection. All of it was good -- nothing great, but all worth a trip back. We will try it out again; might become our new local favorite!

This is the se one time we have been here with our grand kids - six and eight. The food is AMAZING, however the service really sucks!!! We put in the kids orders and one pizza came out in twenty minutes and the other took 45 minutes!! Drinks took forever. The restaurant was not full. Seems they do a big carry out business and maybe the kitchen can’t keep both running smoothly.

Second time around didn’t disappoint. Celebrated my birthday a month ago and returned to enjoy another delicious meal with friends as we celebrated my husbands birthday. The meal starts with a bread basket that is out of this world with dipping sauce that is great. Next the four of us shared a generous portion of calamari which was cooked perfect. For our main course my husband and I had the pork chop which will have again and again and our friends ordered a shrimp dish and chicken marsala which they loved too. The night was complete with a slice of Tiramisu. We all agree this is the best Tiramisu we’ve ever had so be sure to check it out the next time you go 😋. Thanks Adrienne for welcoming us with open arms.

Tonight my husband and I together with our friends and their daughter celebrated my birthday. From the bread basket through the dessert everything was delicious. It was our first time, but not our last. I loved my salmon and my husbands pork chop was awesome. Our friends had veal parm, lasagna and another salmon option. Looking forward to going again soon.

First time here. Food was delicious and very large portions, even the kids meal. The kitchen was annoyingly slow. 45 minutes to get served but our one kids pizza came out in 15 minutes so he was done before everyone else was served. Other than that the food was amazingly delicious. Will go again.

I had a friend visiting from another country and was hoping to have a pleasant Italian meal. From the beginning the experience was horrible. First, they told us that we had canceled our reservation which was definitely not true.

I then asked for a split of wine and the waiter brought an unopened bottle and walked away. When I finally got his attention after 10 min, I asked him for a glass and he brought one soon after but didn't even apologize. He did not open the bottle. We ordered food which was overcooked and seemed like it must have been a frozen product to start as it came to fast as to have been made after we ordered. We ate very little of it. I also ordered a salad which I never received. We complained to the manager about the service and the food. He proceeded to take 20% off of a 60 bill. I think this was ridiculous as he could see we ate nothing. I will not be returning to this restaurant.

Unfortunately we were pretty disappointed with our experience. The restaurant is extremely bright for dinner and the service was disorganized. They must of come at least 3 separate times to our table with someone else's food and when our food came out, we watched them bring it around the restaurant before we hailed them down saying it was probably ours. The food was decent (I'm Italian and it's not authentic Italian in my opinion) but the prices were high for the quality.

Overall, some of the dishes were good-pork chop, veal picatta, but soup, risotto, linguini with vegetable were tasteless. I've noticed the decline in the food taste over the past year. Sorry but it's not good Italian food. I do think their pizza is good. Not worth the price of admission.

We went to Gregorio's for Valentine's Day. Our drinks came promptly as did the salad. The salad was wilted and not very appetizing. The entrees were very delayed in coming and our server appeared to be actively avoiding our table. We were only offered a second drink after the entrees arrived. When the entrees finally arrived, they were good, but I had to give my husband my water as his water glass did not get refilled and we couldn't catch the server's attention. Although it was Valentines Day and we had planned on ordering dessert, we didn't feel like staying any longer and called it a night. The experience was not particularly enjoyable, which is disappointing as the food was not bad overall.

Dinner was good but dessert was not. The tiramisu was covered in cinnamon instead of chocolate. The layers had barely any (if any at all) espresso, chocolate, or liqueur flavor. It was definitely not a traditional Italian tiramisu, although it was a tasty cinnamon cream cake.
