This restaurant was fantastic. It is one of those local family run neighborhood places that deserves our support to survive. Our server was outstanding, he was the only one on and looked after the whole dinning room by himself. My husband and I have enjoyed the food here many times before the MAR of 2020 and are now treating ourselves again to their hospitality and wonderful food. A very enjoyable dinning experience!

One of our favorite restaurants, in fact, we had our wedding dinner there. Service is always great, food sooo good and you can always carry on a conversation and hear what is being said at your table. We've moved, so a bit of a drive, but well worth it.

My wife and I, our son and daughter-in-law enjoyed dinner there on Friday night, Aug 7/20. Their business was mostly to takeout / delivery customers. Very quiet dining in. Very friendly and efficient staff. We each tried a different entree from the limited “ COVID time” menus, and all left satisfied. Prices are reasonable.

Despite the COVID situation, Involtinis has made the very best of it. Dining in was a real treat and the food did not disappoint. This was our “go-to” restaurant and still is. The carmelized onion and Brie was excellent. Not a drop left!

One of the pasta dishes that advertised scallops on the menu had no scallops. Soup only had one scallop and one shrimp. The kitchen was very busy with takeout orders so we do understand how items may be overlooked.

The service was amazing!

Due to the circumstances, we do understand and we are looking forward to trying the restaurant again!

Overpriced. Great staff and ambiance but food was not worth the price. Caesar salad was more stems than leaves. Cannelloni was smothered in sauce to point it could be considered soup.
Dropping price or improving food quality could be options.

Went on Valentine's day 2020. What a terrible experience. I've heard a lot about this place and it has generally been positive. They used to advertise on the Fan960 and that goes in my car all day so I've heard the name many times. Not sure I'll go back.

We reserved a seat for 6:45 months in advance but because they were backed up for over an hour we didn't get seated until after 8:00PM. It was infuriating that we watched other people get in before us they we knew had reservations after us. Nobody knew what they were doing. The staff in the front foyer, that was jammed full of people waiting for tables was clearly not communicating with the staff in the restaurant. By the time we did get seated the young lady that sat us (presumably she'd take a lot of abuse because of the gong show that was going on) was miserable. The menu was hand-written and quite limited. It had none of the items on the regular menu and there wasn't even a pasta option. It's an Italian joint without a pasta main? We didn't stay upon seeing the menu so I can't comment on the food. All in all, just a negative experience from start to finish.

It was Valentine's Day and we were asked to be at the restaurant by 5:15 pm for the early sitting of their set menu for the occasion. We arrived at 5:00 and were seated right away. Our waiter came to the table and told us that they were having trouble printing the menu and asked for our patience. At 5:30 he came back with a hand written, photocopied menu. We accepted that things sometimes go wrong but wondered why they would wait until the last minute to print the menu.
Things went from bad to worse. We placed our order. The fig salad was excellent, but the appetizer of mushroom in puff pastry had clearly been microwaved as the pastry was soggy and the content of the tart was still cold.
Then we waited and waited and waited for our main course. The waiter periodically came by to say the kitchen was busy and our meal would be up shortly. It was finally put before us at 7:05 pm! The duck was overdone and the vegetables cold. We passed on dessert and left the restaurant at 8:00 pm.
We have dined at this restaurant several times in the past and the food and service has been excellent. Valentine's Day was very disappointing indeed. Not sure we will go back any time soon.

We arrived for Valentine’s Day, we were seated with no menus, we ended up getting a handwritten menu, which some parts which were illegible. We didn’t get asked what we wanted for food until
20min in but we were served drinks right away. We didn’t get our starting bread until half way through our appetizers, salads were good. However, our next course was pastry with shrimps which were soggy and cold. We arrived at 5 and didn’t get our main courses till 7:13. We were hoping to leave early as we had a previous engagement for 7:30. We ordered our deserts but had to leave because the latter. Overall the food was not worth the money and disappointed with the lack of service and speed considering when we ordered, there were three other couples in the restaurant but it took hours for the food to arrive.

I chose to go back to this restaurant because of a very yummy dish I ate previously.
Unfortunately our experience was very bad and it happened to be on New Years Eve. I have a great life aside and complaining about food seems so minor but this is a review I was asked to make.
We had a friendly waiter,but, was at the mercy of the slow food in the kitchen. We were as he put it “that table with all the issues”
Three of the choices upon arrival we gone, pizza appetizer was undercooked and boring, olive dip on bread was congealed with some cheese, one shrimp with a watery (strawberry)? sauce to start, my fish was a square of rubber, honestly! As much as I can appreciate veggies with a crunch these were quite raw. My husbands dinner was pushed aside,that in itself is a miracle. The salad and soup was pretty good.
What hurt the most was the bill at the end, overpriced for the selection. Sorry, K

New Years set mid-Italian based menu with several choices of appetizers, soup/salad, main, desert. Very good service and recommendations.Large well prepared and cooked choices over a 2 hour period. Staff was polite, easy conversationalists and added to the experience insuring customer satisfaction. This is an oasis of excellent Italian recipes and enjoyment. It was an enjoyable evening.
