Esposito's Italian Bistro
Excellent food and service st this trendy Italian Bistro a stones throw from the Auburn University campus!
We came on the night before Auburns spring graduation, so it was very busy but we were well taken care of and the food was delicious! The Alfredo had a little too much pepper in it for some people’s tastes in our party, so beware if you aren’t a pepper fan. The bread and cauliflower spinach dip were amazing. Great wine selection for a good value!
Very good service and food. Homemade pasta and great appetizers. Manager Linda super nice.
Lindsay and Linda were fabulous!
Nice wine list reasonably priced
We were able to get a reservation last minute when every other restaurant was packed....and now we know why. The service was subpar, the food was ok and they have no liquor license. It took way too long for food to arrive, drinks to get to the table, etc. on top of that, it seems like one of our servers might have been drunk.
Love this restaurant!! Great food! Great service! Very reasonable prices!
Great food! Great service! Reasonable prices!!
Love the food! Great value and yummy. The the lasagna and fried artichokes and awesome. We go about once a week.
Very nice place. Food was excellent.
We were seated promptly and greeted by our server quickly. Our entrees arrived within 20 minutes and the lasagna was delicious. Would definitely return to try more dishes.
Great dining experience. Good food and atmosphere.
This was our first time visiting Esposito’s and it was an awesome experience! Food was delicious, service was perfection, and overall value was a 10! We wished that the lighting was a little dimmer for more ambiance, but we really enjoyed our visit and will be back!
Great homemade pasta and bread and my wine was a great addition. I sure hope everyone in Auburn will try out this little gem - would love to try sometime for lunch and get one of the pizzas.
This place was fantastic and I can’t wait to go back! Great service and unbelievable food! Best tiramisu I’ve ever had!
Great experience! Food was great and the pricing was very reasonable.
This was our first visit and it occurred in October 2020 during the Covid pandemic; therefore, might not be a true reflection of normal experience. Two of our party had caprese salad which was excellent. Also superb was the house salad of asian greens, pecans, carrots, onions, and pecorino Romano. In fact, I thought the house salad was the better choice. We had 3 different entrees (all 3 pasta): tagliatelle bolognese, fettuccine Alfredo, and chicken basil tagliatelle. All were outstanding. The menu is simple and well planned. There are several more substantial entrees for bigger appetites. There is a small, but excellent desert selection. I heartily recommend the cannoli, but tiramisu is available for those who find this Italian confection endearing. Detractions were minor and could be attributed to the constraints of life in a pandemic. Entrees were a bit slow arriving. Service, although pleasant was somewhat lacking in attentiveness. Unfortunately, the bar only serves beer and wine, but has a good selection of both. The wine selection is adequate but does not include pricey vintages. Again, not a problem for me as I find bargain wines to be quite satisfying when carefully chosen. This is a really nice restaurant with excellent Italian food, well prepared and delicious. The casual atmosphere and lack of pretentiousness adds to the enjoyment. We will definitely return.
Great food, drink and service
Three of us had pasta dishes. I had the lasagna and it was excellent. It would have fed all three of us because it was huge. The sauce was great. Will return someday.
Food was really good. First time in. The Canoli was spot on. Also, both pasta dishes we had were excellent. No complaints.
Food was bland, bruschetta was hard as a rock and tasted stale. Maybe it was just a busy night but not impressed hope it gets better. Locations nice.
Have enjoyed this restaurant on multiple occasions. Consistently good. Caesar salad is the best I've ever had. Pasta and seafood items always fresh. Brunch was great as well! Nice ambiance. Great addition to downtown Auburn!
Wonderful service - Robert was spectacular. Food was great took a while to get our order, but in fairness we had a party of 12. Overall, was a great experience.
entrees were good and reasonable priced. Menu is somewhat limited. Wine prices were very good. Our server was ok but not great.
Great food! Getting meals a tad slow, but just because of a rush of people arriving about same time for dinner. Very happy to have this addition to Auburn for authentic Italian downtown.
I strongly recommend you try this excellent new Italian place on College in the heart of Auburn. I was there for the first time with a group. Every course of the meal was outstanding. Appetizers were great. The entrees were served with large portions. The fresh pasta and bread were excellent. Give Esposito's a try - you won't be disappointed.
