    We have been to this place one time before and had an awesome time. Today was really no different, the food was amazing and the place in its self is an incredible option if you are looking for a quiet quant place to spend time with someone special. Our service this night was not the greatest, it did not really seem very busy so not sure we’re the disconnect was with our waitress. BUT still LOVE this place it is a hidden gem in the Kalamazoo area that I would recommend to anyone without question. Will definitely go back.

    The shrimp scampi was great. I asked if it could be made with angel hair instead of fetticinie. Our server said she would ask. I said it would be fine, however, if they couldn't do it that way. I did get the dish with the fetticine and not the angel hair but was charged an additional $2. Not sure why. Yes, we will be back but it was really really cold in the restaurant and I was glad I dressed warmer than usual.

    We took friends here for a birthday celebration. This was their first visit here. Upon arrival, the host initially tried to seat us at a table set for four with five of us on the reservation? She resolved this by giving us a bigger table (thought it was going to be a good night). We sat looking at the menu and watched another party take our original table. A server immediately took their drink order, delivered their drink order and an appetizer prior to a server even acknowledging us. After some time, a server brought us water and said there was confusion on our table. A different server finally came over and took our drink order (with no apology for leaving us hanging). We ordered drinks and appetizers. Upon delivery of our drinks, we ordered entrees. Our entrees came as ordered, but the person celebrating their birthday was delivered cold food. He is not a complainer, so while we did mention it to the server, no action was taken. Unfortunately, I doubt that we will be trying Comensoli’s again for a while given our experience with service and food quality.

    The food was excellent as always and the service was great. Unfortunately it was a special day, Mother's Day, and a reservation for two relegated us to the backer outside as the hostess informed us our party was to small to eat inside the restaurant. I don't recommend a small party going for dinner on major holidays occasions.
