    This place has the perfect ambiance for a quiet date night. The décor is all from The Godfather and the food would make any Italian proud. We tried it based on a recommendation for a romantic date night and the intimacy of the restaurant allowed us to focus on each other without ever having to worry about the distractions that you commonly encounter. We are already talking about going back again very soon.

    Our appetizers were forgotten. They delivered our food before we had to ask for the appetizers. We ordered a side order of bread that we had to ask twice for. Waitress needs to write the orders down. She was trying to keep it all in her head. We ordered two desserts and they only delivered one. Food was alright but nothing to write home about. I could have made better Alfredo at home for a fraction of the cost.

    Bread is obviously pillsbury or other similar dough. Nothing we had seemed to be scratch made. Pretty sure jarred sauce and Costco type grilled chicken chunks. No need to go back.

    Mostly alfredo sauce dishes. Bread not included in a basket before meal-unless you order it $8.00 plus sauce $2.00 for 6 small sticks. Dipper fries-we needed 2 plates $8. each and $2. sauce for 7 people. Many f us had steak alfredo $20. meat was pretty tough but ok. Very small glass of cheap red wine $7. no specials. Good to try new places-we are a monthly dinner group. I would give this an ok-maybe won't rush back real soon-but maybe down the road.

    My bestie and I went to Barzini's for the first time and we really enjoyed ourselves. It is an intimate little place, great ambiance, and the food was INCREDIBLE. We shared a house salad and we each had the steak alfredo and I do not know what they did to the sauce but it was truly amazing. We both finished our entire plates. The staff was friendly enough but we did wait quite a while for the server to greet us and bring us waters and check in on us to refill sodas. It appeared that she may have been the only server there so I am not trying to knock her, we still really enjoyed ourselves and I would recommend this restaurant!

    Everything on their menu is delicious. We had our 50th anniversary celebration here last July. Tonight I was struck by how tasty the croutons were and sure enough they make their own. I bought a box to take home!

    Very disappointed in the food and atmosphere. The servings were small and nothing special. At those prices, I would expect excellent food with a salad or bread basket. Neither was offered. The atmosphere was unpleasant at best and the fake piano player was spooky. Not surprised that we were one of only two tables filled . Great location and opportunity on Main Street. Unfortunately there was nothing to recommend.

    Great food! I'm working my way down the menu and this visit I had cheese tortellini in garlic Alfredo sauce with grilled chicken. I'm usually not a big chicken fan, but these guys knock it out of the park. We also had the steak bites dinner as an appetizer. It was as tasty as ever.

    We had a group of six last Saturday for dinner. The food was good, but it was very obvious you are understaffed. One person got their food first and was done eating by the time the rest of us got our meals. It was about 20 minutes before the last five meals came. One of the five meals was wrong so they had to take that back and that person got theirs 20 minutes after the rest of us. Needless to say we were there a very long time. The ambience in the restaurant is nice, but there were dirty dishes stacked everywhere behind the hostess stand, which was a definite eyesore.

    We had a good time. Food was good. The poor server, she was the only one for the whole place. It’s not a large place, but still. She did a good job for not having another server. We arrived on time and had to wait 15 to be seated. The table was open, she was just so busy. We will try it again some day.

    This is one of the places even though the service was terrible, we will return because the food was outstanding. Our soup and salads never came out. Our server never came around. I would have had three or four glasses of wine, but she was never around for me to order another. And the outfit she was wearing was horribly unprofessional. If she bent over I bet you could have seen her nether regions. Skin tight and shorter than Daisy Dukes. But, again, the food was OUTSTANDING. Go for the food! Support local!

    Food and ambiance both very enjoyable. While very pleasant, service during this visit was not great. We had asked for salads to be delivered with the entree, they were not. Salads were delivered before our appetizer arrived. The table next to us received their entree before they received their soup and salad course. After we had finished our salads, appetizer, and wine, the server asked how we were doing. Told her great and that we were looking forward to our entree. She seemed surprised and asked if we hadn't received it. All in all a very pleasant meal and friendly service, just some logistical problems by the server.
