Some of my best friends form out of US were visiting me and I decided to try Iozzo’s Garden of Italy because it was close to work. The place, the server and the food were fantastic. I highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions.

This is our favorite special occasion restaurant. The staff is always outstanding and no the balance of checking in without interrupting every conversation throughout the night. The food is to die for and we always enjoy the ambience along with the food.

We opted to try the dinner for 2 for the variety it provided but couldn’t resist a caprese salad appetizer. The tomatoes in the caprese salad were pink and mushy. Taking into consideration it is winter in the Midwest, we thought Roma tomatoes would be a better option. We also prefer the balsamic drizzled atop the salad rather than being on the plate. The Italian Wedding soup was very tasty. The meal was described as a platter of 6 items, which we expected to be served side by side. We were shocked and disappointed when the platter arrived with the chicken piccata on top of the spaghetti Iozzo, and veal Marsala was atop the fettuccine Alfredo. We separated the items out but were still disappointed. The chicken was flavorful but over cooked and dry as was the veal. The server was able to customize our dish and take out the mushrooms, for which we were grateful. Overall, we were disappointed. Probably won’t go back.

The best way to describe the food is bland. It may have been an off night since we have dined at Iozzo's in the past and everything was good. Hopefully it improves.

Let me start off by saying we LOVE Iozzo's and have been there numerous times. However, we had some things happen this time but maybe it was an "off" night. First, our appetizer (scallops) was superb but we received the worst's smallest dollop of goat cheese - I'm talking like a silver dollar or less. I then wasn't impressed at all with the house salad - no croutons or cheese, barely any dressing (in fact, there may have been a spritz on there) and just tomatoes and cucumbers. Then, my piece of lasagna for $20 was super small this time (normally, the portion size is HUGE) and had some "crusty" inedible bites on the edges. However, to do it justice, the blackened chicken is always amazing and my wife's Carbonara was out of this world, and to top it all off, our Old Fashioned cocktails were delicious with a heavy pour.

I had an appointment in the City, so my wife and I decided to try someplace new.

I had the Chicken Diavolo and my wife had the Linguini with white clam sauce. Both dishes were fantastic and since this was lunch, the portions were perfect for a mid day meal.

Service was good and attentive, but not so much as to be disruptive.

We will be back!
