Great food but poor service. At one point waitress slammed to go boxes on our table. Very rude. We were the only African Americans there. Don’t know if color related or not but she ruined our 21st birthday celebration for my granddaughter who has undergone several brain surgeries and we’re very blessed to still have here with us.

We had great service. The meatballs and Calamari were fantastic for starters. Our server was prompt and knowledgeable. We all had Caesar salads and this was the only disappointing part of the meal. They were clearly prepared well in advance and left on plates in a refrigerator. The dressing was bland and scarce. Our main courses were fantastic - veal parm, ravioli in cream / tomato sauce, sausage and peppers with fresh pasta and steak and gnocchi. I highly recommend this place, just want the chef to work harder on making fresh salad with fresh dressing.

Phil was our server and was outstanding. One of the best in the city. He made wonderful food/drink recommendations and was extremely knowledgable about the food and drink menu. The food is the best Italian in the city and stands out from any other Italian restaurant.

Both appetizers and entree’s were well served and hot. Calamari was tender with a light crispy breading. My date had the shrimp and she said they were spicy but tasted very good. We both came for the lobster ravioli, and it didn’t disappoint. They were served in creamy brown sauce with mushrooms. We also had a hose salad with bread and dipping sauce. We enjoyed a flavored coffee for desert. Great meal, we’ll be back. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and offered recommendations

We have been here numerous times and always have excellent food, beverage and service. We sat at a table in the bar and David was wonderful. We usually have wine but tried the Old Fashioned and they were nothing short of excellent. We can’t wait to go back!

Communication about the reservation was great! Space is tight and we were seated against a wall with one high chair and seven seats. That was fine with us, but others seemed to be put out that two children were there. Our waitress was seemed to be in an extreme hurry and bothered by every detail of the evening. The food was a good temperature but not good flavor. The chicken Marsala had very little flavor and we requested a replacement which was granted. This was our fourth visit and most likely our last.

I eat at Iozzo's quite a bit. The meat ravioli was really good like normal. They no longer have the great bread that they used to have. They now get the new bread from Scholars Inn.. it is just ok. The spaghetti was good like normal. The Cream Cake was hard and seemed frozen. I have had this cake many times and it is just hit and miss. All and all it was a C+ experience. My colleagues pizza he said was just ok. When you pay this kind of money for lunch it should be better.

Have always enjoys Iozzos in the past. Bread was late being served after I inquired. It was still in the oven. My veal was not as tender as in past. Broccolini was tough to cut with a knife even. Server did keep waters full & asked about desserts. Front of room was chilly near windows.

Always great food and always great service.
We tried the eggplant meatballs for an appetizer because it was something different and they were so good.
We had the lobster ravioli and chicken piccata for dinner. Both were great. My wife ordered the lobster ravioli and probably out-ordered me, though. That dish was delicious.
Great service and overall a wonderful time again.
