Pancetta was absolutely delightful the second time around. Affordable wine selections and perfectly mixed cocktails. We were welcomed warmly and the service was first-class and friendly. Michael advised us that the salad I chose was large enough for two, and it was served just that way, providing a very personal touch. The salmon was delicious and cooked to perfection and my wine, which Michael expertly recommended, was crisp, cold and delicious.

My friends were delighted that we were able to recommend this neighborhood gem and can't wait to join us for another delectable meal sometime soon!

Bravo to all!

I brought a client there for lunch, and we were pleasantly surprised to find such a nice buffet option for lunch. Salad and pastas were delicious, and cheesecake was a nice ending to our meal. I will definitely come back again!

I hesitate to write this review because part of me wants to share this gem and part of me doesn’t want to ruin this place-it’s never crowded, the parking is great, the food is amazing and very reasonably priced.

We decided to go here on Valentine’s Day because we got married at the Marriott. We ate here twice, for the wedding tasting and then breakfast the next day, hadn’t returned and had always been meaning to return. We were married in 2015 and still today, everyone raves about how good the food was at our wedding. I can tell you from experience that is not the case at a lot of catering halls.

The staff here is wonderful, the place is nice and modern. This time, we’ll be returning soon!

Fried calamari was chewy and undercooked. Veal entrée was very good, though. Everything else was just mediocre. Our waiter gave us dessert menus and the completely disappeared. I had to flag another waiter to take our dessert order. Then our waiter appeared with the check. All in, a mediocre, overpriced experience.

Our Wedding Anniversary dinner coincided with a bodybuilding competition in the hotel. Thus the property was teeming with contestants, spectators and vendors. Despite the commotion the restaurant staff was very accommodating as we changed our reservation several times. Eventually, the suggestion was to dine in the bar to preserve a more intimate setting. Where we had a great time and the food was excellent.

The waitstaff was particularly on-point this visit. I'm going to say that Pancetta continues to be my "go to restaurant" for everything but seafood (their seafood is lovely; I just have a favorite seafood joint in the neighborhood). I'm really fond of this restaurant.

My husband and I were there for our anniversary for dinner, but it was only a so-so experience. The waitress was lovely, service was great. We did enjoy splitting the Pancetta salad, and my hsuband's entree (pork chops in a mushroom demi-glaze was very good, but I was disappointed in my sea scallops dish. I didn't really enjoy the Tuscan tomato sauce, there were almost no vegetables except for the potatoes the scallops were on. The most irritating part was the background muzak that Marriott has piped into the restaurant as well as throughout the hotel... very contemporary, loud, hiphop music that was not conducive to a nice quiet dinner in the restaurant. I complained, and the manager came over to apologize, but said he could do nothing else. We won't be returning here anytime soon.

Worst food ever.
Will avoid that place at any cost. The only good thing was the service. But the food will make anyone sick.
Bread - was at least 3 days before old and warmed on oven.
Salads - old and diacusting.
Pastas - i bet the cook forgot them boiling.
Sauce - no taste at all. It looked like old shoes.
Horrible horrible experience

The food was good but menu limited and not suited for a birthday dinner. Was like lunch and dinner all in one! Every thing was delicious except the calamari! That was terrible. All in all okay place for a quick bite if in the area.

What a lovely, unexpected pleasure! I don't do a lot of hotel restaurants, but this one was on-point. The food was excellent, the service was focused and ready without being cloying, and the GM personally checked on me throughout the meal. I felt valued and cared-for, and I had an absolutely delicious meal.

This is our neighborhood "go to restaurant" since it is located very near where I live. Located in the Glenpointe Marriott Hotel, very close to parkways...diversified menu...great service. We dine her often and always are welcomed when we arrive. We love the banquet booth in the back room....cozy and comfortable. I have met friends and dined for lunch as well. A winner!

I met a client there to celebrate the closing on her home, and we had a lovely experience. The service and ambiance were lovely, quiet and tables not crowded together. Our wine was delicious, and menu had enough variety. We chose to share the Pancetta salad to start, which was yummy, and both of us ordered one of the specials, the fillet of sole stuffed with crabmeat and green beans. It was excellent! We finished off the meal with a tres leche cake slice, and really felt like it was a special experience. we will definitely return there again.
