Food was very good! Our server was GREAT! She took excellent care of us.
Never disappoints, the Chefs always have a great twist to excellent meals. Brought friends that hadn't been before, and they also enjoyed their dinner.
Fantastic Food, Service and Ambiance.
In a time when restaurants are struggling Il Calabrese did an outstanding job of meeting expectations with both food and service. Very refreshing atmosphere and will definitely be back!
Confusion at the front of the house, but overall great experience. Great wine recommendation from our server and delicious meal. We will be back.
Food was very tasty! Service was great! Would recommend trying it out.
Treated my best friend to dinner for her birthday
Definitely a “go-to” place that never disappoints!
Spent our anniversary here lastnight, could not be more impressed! Perfect service, amazing food and the best dessert! Will be back definitely.
Love going to brunch here.
We sat outside on the patio and it was very nice. Even though it rained several times during our visit we never got wet and we thought the booths and decor outside were comparable to being inside the restaurant.
The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We ordered several different pasta dishes, but thought the Rigatoni con Pollo was the best. The Ossobuco was also wonderful.
Highly recommend Calabrese if you're looking for a great Italian dinner with a nice atmosphere.
Our group of 10 lucked out and were seated in a private dining room. Our server, Jeremy, was phenomenal! The food and cocktails were all delicious. We are planning to hold our holiday dinner here.
Morgan was great.
Meal was very, very good.
Will go back again and again.
Great new atmosphere, excellent service and food.
WE appreciate the fact that they let us order "Italian Style" and share plates. That way all of us could experience multiple dishes.
The food is always great. The service and attentiveness of the management goes above and beyond. The only negative is the noise level. The bar area is very active and this tends to add more noise to the restaurant but still love the restaurant.
We sat outside on a lovely terrace. We were a table of 8. Food was good and service was good. Would’ve loved a bit quieter as freeway can be noisy but it was such a nice night good to be outside.
They again knocked it out of the ballpark! We returned for our anniversary dinner because our fist time there was outstanding. They did not disappoint! We were warmly welcomed and the hospitality we received make the price of our meal a wonderful value because they gave us a wonderful memory! We're now planning returning on next year for our 10th anniversary and we're going to host several people at Calabrese for the celebration! Of course, we won't be waiting a year to return. We plan to return several times before then!
Food,service, ambiance, all outstanding.
Great menu. Very personable and brilliant chef.
Our favorite restaurant.
If you like wine. You should order the bottle that the owner buys from his home town. It pairs perfectly with the food
I would recommend Calabrese for dinner. The food was great!
The food exceeded all of our expectations. The calamari appetizer was fresh, the cannelloni and sea bass were delicious, and the dessert was the best piece of carrot cake we’ve ever had. The service was very good and the noise reasonable. We went to this restaurant years ago under different mgt and what a difference. This went from be a second tier consideration to one of our top 3 in Southlake.
Been here before and was very pleased. This time we were rushed in and out along with the very sub par and undercooked pasta. There was also water on the floor causing a health hazard as someone did slip and fall. The manager compensated the poorly cooked pasta but the Caprese salad felt cheap, no heirloom tomatoes instead they were store bought Romas along with rubbery mozzarella. Had a great experience last time, this time was super disappointing.
We ordered the spinach fettuccine with lump crab and the branzino for our main course and they were both delicious!! It was a bit pricey but well worth the price as I've never tasted an Italian pasta that was this good! I would highly recommend this place. They even gave us a hand signed card by all the employees for our anniversary and that was a very thoughtful gesture.
we ate outside and it was lovely! Service and food exceptional as always!
Always solid. Enjoyed the crab with linguine and the chilean sea bass. Fab!
The food was excellent and my wife and I both enjoyed it a lot. Our waitress was very good. This was our first trip so we don't know how it compares to other times but the noise level was so high it turned an otherwise wonderful time into a disappointment. People around us were very loud, the hard surfaces of the dining area amplified the noise, and we had a very hard time trying to carry on a conversation.
Great ambiance and service but food was not upto par.
Our party of 9 was celebrating a 60th birthday. We had a special evening. Il Calabrese is a favorite restaurant of mine, especially after the way they treated us last night. The manager was awesome!
As always a HOMERUN !!
Great as always.
Always a great time and dinner at Calabrese! One of our favorite date night spots!
I’m from Brooklyn sonI know good Italian food and lived in the Dallas are for 30 years, but Calabrese is the best Italian restaurant by far and really the only good one.
Celebrating a 70 th birthday with friends and were placed in a small cove off upstairs dining room. So the noise level was much lower than would have been. Food was delicious and service was great! Would go back again.
The food and service were excellent. The noise level was bit much. Only complaint was that I asked the waitress to wrap the rest of my pizza to take home. She did not and we did not realize this until we were on our way home. So unhappy about that. But gone now.
Food was amazing, service was top notch. Even accommodated a special request entree that wasn’t on the menu when staff overheard us talking about piccata. Definitely coming here again!
Excellent food and service
We had small farewell lunch for my friend. Ryan who is our server is very well trained. Of course, food is great!
