We had our Thanksgiving dinner there and it was so delicious. It was better than I expected. Turkey was moist and tasty. Loved the beet salad. An A+++

Chose this place specifically because they were the only restaurant found with gluten free crust and vegan cheese.
Ordered a vegan pizza with gluten free crust, waited over a half hour.
Finally the pizza came.
Regular crust, smothered in pepperoni, regular cheese and Parmesan.
Had to wait another 15 minutes to get a LUKE WARM stale pizza.
Would never recommend this over priced place. Yuck!!!

Great atmosphere, friendly staff. The food was subpar. Bland. Lobster ravioli had a bit of a fishy taste. With the limited menu, I was fully expecting great food, but was let down.

Pricy but no service. We came for brunch buffet. One waiter was responsible for the whole place, so I could blame him for the bad service. Won't come back again.

Very large restaurant with large bar and well spaced tables. Nice views over Lake Como. Pasta dishes, Arancini, wine and cocktails all were large and tasty. Good food with good service.

Overall it was okay. Nothing about the experience was amazing nor was the food to die for. It was just okay. The server was not the best he would tend to forget things we requested or take a really long time to bring up something as simply as water for our cups.

Seated right away and wait staff was fantastic, looking at the menu the prices are on par for the Lake Geneva area with the exception of a few entrees. Ordered the only steak on the menu (one of the overpriced items) and was extremely disappointed when they brought it out and it was drenched in sauce. My wife ordered the lobster ravioli and had multiple pieces of shell in her food. The mussel appetizer was awesome and the wine was wine so the night was still a good one, next time I’ll order pizza

The new chef made a huge difference. We celebrated a birthday party for my sons and it was very nice. We ate there last June it was not so good for the cost and quality of food . My son convinced me to give it another try since they improved and hire a new chef . Very great food and service.

We love coming here, we are never disappointed. The food was excellent, we had the arancini, meatball Pizette & the filet with mushroom risotto. The service was great and the view was perfect. We also were pleasantly surprised to experience the live music which was also excellent! We had an amazing night out… even brought our 10 week old daughter with us. Crafted Italia is a great spot for a date night or family night out! Can’t wait to come back again.

Friendly reception and attentive service. Food was good although the noise level was high and the chairs were extremely noisy when moved. The prices seem to be a little high for the value received.

Service was slow & inattentive from our main server. None of the food was very warm. The flavor profile of main component vs the sauce didn’t match. Great mushrooms & flavors of Arancini were great but crust was over cooked. Wine list price is outrageous out of line with the type of restaurant. Totally overrated. Won’t be back.

There was a large group at a long table in the center of the restaurant. They were loud and it was difficult to carry a conversation at our table. I order a Gluten Free pasta with shrimp in a white sauce. It affected me all the following day. The server was tied up with the large group and slow to respond to our needs. Probably a rare occurrence but we were disappointed with our experience.

Food is overpriced and either tasteless or unappetizing. I have eaten at this restaurant three separate times and wanting to give them "another chance" but this was my last. Food never gets better but the prices get higher. Do not recommend.

The filet was tasted delicious, however it was little underdone for my boyfriend. We also got the lobster ravioli, they also could’ve been cooked just a tad more, but nothing crazy. We would definitely go back! Mussels were cooked to perfection and service was great.

While the food was fine when we got it, the servers were distracted by another event. When my wife’s trout arrived it was piping hot and my mussels were so cold the sauce was congealed. We asked for our waitress and when she finally arrived she got me a new order which was excellent but my wife and I were unable to eat together. They apologized and comped the mussels and a glass of wine but I won’t be in a hurry to return.

The trout was good but the salad on it was overly dressed and the grapes and nuts took over. The margarita pizzas have way too much sauce and although it says Buffalo mozzarella I sampled it and it was soft mozzarella but did not taste of Buffalo milk mozzarella. Staff was slow which is to be expected as lots of short staff but simple questions seemed to perplex like can I have an extra fork - to which I was told well they come in a kit with a napkin - like it could be taken apart. Also please do not spray cleaning solution all over a table next to me. I really do not want to smell it while I’m eating. Maybe solution on the cloth might work better. Overall the room is nice. Our waiter was great and the ambiance was good. A few tweaks here and there should do it.

Food is excellent. Service is good but miss simple things like brining salad and entree at same times. Had to have dinners taken back and kept heated until we finished. Also started disinfecting table by us. Understand it has to be done just point the sprayer away from us. Again simple but important. Staff is very friendly and courteous. Just need a little more attention to detail. By the way Erin is the best! She did not wait on us but came by a few time’s and asked how dinner was going. She is top notch!!!!!!!!

We celebrated our 30th Anniversary at Crafted and the experience definitely didn't disappoint! Our meal was perfectly timed out so that we could enjoy the appetizer and quiet conversation without worrying about the pizza coming out at the same time! Our server, Macey, was super-attentive and helpful! The ambiance was beautiful...it was a perfect evening at a perfect place!
