    We went for our anniversary. It was the first time for both my wife and me. I had the veal parm and my wife the chicken parm. The spaghetti was great. Both of the meats were cooked well, but both lacked flavor. The environment was great, service was great, but let down by the food.

    Our food was great! The Italian Wedding Soup only had one piece of meat in it and left us wanting more. The server was preoccupied with a large group and did not check on us in a timely manner, maybe should have had a different server for our table. The large group was a bit loud but not too distracting. Overall, we enjoyed our first experience and would love to try it for lunch sometime.

    The food was spectacular. Rustic vibe, with genuine Italian influences. Spectacular wine selection, wonderful service. Not intrusive. Courses spaced out well. Homemade pasta. Win-win.

    5 friends celebrated 2 birthdays at your quaint, beautiful restaurant!! It was just the perfect place - the ambiance, food and wait service was excellent! All 5 of us loved what we ordered and I had even enough for lunch the next day. The waitress was a sweet girl and very attentive. It was nice that the birthday girls were each given a free spumoni to celebrate their big day!! Thank you Iozzo’s for my first, but won’t be the last, visit to your restaurant!

    Over the past year it seems that the service has declined. Last night several tables around us had the orders messed up & long delays for food, It felt like not everyone was on same page & was running around confused. We try to eat here about 4x a yr & do not want to find a new Italian Resturant , it’s getting harder to justify spending $100+ a meal that feels more like an Applebees meal.

    Iozzo’s never disappoints. Have been several times, but it’s been a couple years due to COVID since this group has been back. We had a big Birthday to celebrate and it was great. They are always very accommodating and their staff is great!

    I've enjoyed many wonderful visits to Iozzo's and have never been disappointed by the quality of the fare or service. This visit was no exception. In fact, my soup and pasta even exceeded my expectations. As for service, Chris was the absolute best -- Iozzo's is fortunate to have him. I can't recommend this place highly enough!

    We were there on a Monday night. We arrived at 615 PM with reservations and were seated immediately. We then waited for 2 1/2 hours to get our food. I understand sometimes they get busy but 2 hours to make spaghetti is ridiculous
