Very nice evening out. We ate inside, in a socially-distanced, pleasant atmosphere. The food and service were great. We will return.

We ate out here last night and the food was phenomenal! Not only that, but we were truly blown away by the service!! It was our 4 year anniversary and, though we were hesitant to dine inside a restaurant, Landini Brothers made us feel extremely safe and their staff was very cautious. On top of that, they had put little heart sequences on our table and wrote us a wonderful Anniversary card. This place truly goes above and beyond for their customers and we are impressed to say the least. It was our first time dining here but it was definitely not be our last.

We sat upstairs on a Saturday night. This is clearly an old, if not historic, building, which I find charming. But the furnishings, carpet have not been updated in ages. The whole upstairs reeked of old cigarette smoke. The food also seemed dated, more acceptable for the price in the 90's and maybe early 2000s. Rubbery roast squid appetizer, linguini pescatora that contained a bunch of small seafood that had every indication of coming from a frozen bag, and even thin, limp linguini that was surprisingly bad. However, one saving grace was very friendly and attentive service. The clientele and overall ambience was pleasant as well.

We are sorry you did not enjoy the aesthetics of our restaurant, which were updated a few months ago with rococo crystal, iron chandeliers & a beautiful new wine room. Our seafood does not come from a frozen bag, we are happy to show you the deliveries that come to us daily from the region’s top seafood distributor as well as shipments from Hawaii, FRESH. Something tells me that none of this matters to you & that you would rather make things up & post online which is something truly mysterious.

The Scallopini di Vitello ai Funghi was simply wonderful. The veal was very tender and the cream sauce was perfection. The Ciccio Rosso Sangiovese Blend was excellent. A nice light red wine that paired well with the veal. The atmosphere was wonderful as well. All around, a perfect evening.

Fabulous service, with a perfect level of attentiveness. Thank you Landini Brothers for being open in these crazy times! Highlights for our group were the salmon stuffed with crabmeat, and the melt-in-your-mouth short ribs!

The cuisine was superb and table side service was responsive, friendly and reasonably efficient. Checking in was a challenge since no one was working at the kiosk despite a relatively sparse crowd and plenty of wait staff looking for folks to serve. When we finally caught someone's attention, it seems they didn't see that we had an Open Table reservation. A few hours later I received a note asking why we didn't show up. That appears to have been reconciled.

Short version is the dinner was excellent, but attention to detail left a little to be desired.

Awesome, as always!! We sat upstairs for the first time. If you want to enjoy all the holiday decor, be sure to request downstairs. We had a wonderful time, we always do! Worth noting; the service was outstanding, regardless of two big private parties that were taking place at the same time upstairs.

We had an excellent time. The food--appetizers, soups, main courses, and desserts--were all extremely tasty. The service was also great. The waiter gave us very helpful recommendations, the food arrived quickly, and they responded fast whenever we needed anything.

Oh, it was also my birthday, and they brought me a piece of tiramisu on the house, so bonus points for that.

We liked it so much we dined at Landini Brothers three times over one weekend. I had Lamb Chops and a Sea Bass special that was amazing. My wife loved the salads.

I love Landini's for the food but more recently, the service hasn't been great. We have to ask put our orders in and ask for the specials. Overall, service has been a bit slow and little interaction.

It’s always a pleasure to eat at Landini Brothers. Nothing has gone unnoticed by the owners and management when starting this company. The entire experience from start to finish will always be memorable. I recommend the shrimp and avocado for an appetizer, langostines with a side of garlic and oil linguine and you have to try their cappuccino with the sizzle candy stick at the end of dinner. I also highly recommend sitting outside, it feels like you’re in Europe with all the beautiful lights and people walking up and down the street. The man that plays the xylophone out front in the street is amazing and creates such a romantic atmosphere. This is a great place for a date night, anniversary or just if you want a nice dinner. My favorite restaurant ever!
