Beautiful place, food was excellent, staff was quick, polite , timely but not smothering.
Overall a good dining experience , although for such a beautiful restaurant it’s a shame there was no dress code. Ball caps, one lady was even wearing sweat pants and sandals.
This really brought down the dining experience.
Such a shame.

Poor Italian ambiance, doesn't look or feel very Italian.
Service was poor. Was never offered a coffee refill.
Booked online, was asked if this reservation was for any occasion? I relied yes, an anniversary. This was never mentioned by our server - so why ask?
Food was mediocre.
Thought we would try the Italian joint in the neighborhood for our 31st anniversary, but we were disappointed

Italia

Hello Bob, It is with the deepest apologies we missed your anniversary; we will be looking at our online reservation system to ensure our Opentable reservations have correct details for our diners. We also are disappointed to read you didn't enjoy your experience at Italia. We will share this with our team to improve level of service and menu offerings. We do hope you try us again in the near future.

We found that the food was okay, my husband had the seafood linguine and he found that it was lacking in flavor. I had the chicken, spinach penne and I found it dry, not enough sauce. We had salads to start and they were a good size, almost to big for a starter. This meal was okay but if you are looking for a special place to have dinner and a good meal this is not the place. It was our 45 anniversary and we were disappointed in the food that other people raved about.

My husband ordered the lamb... it was fatty and not very appetizing looking. The plates where hot as if they come out of a microwave or oven.... The waiter took it back as if it wasn’t the first thing he was returning to the kitchen. It was our first meal out since Covid.... so we were extremely disappointed! 👎👎

Wonderful place. This was our second time dining here within the past month. We feel very comfortable with the precautions in place during this difficult time. The menu has a good variety and the food is amazing. We had the scallops with risotto for an appetizer,for the second time around, which was outstanding. The beef papadelle and mushroom risotto for the main courses were very tasty. Portions are good size. The cocktail and wine menu is varied. Ben is the best server. He took the time to ask our names and was very attentive. We will definitely be back and will ask to be in his section again! Thank you to Dean, the manager, who came around to the tables to make sure everything was meeting expectations. It definitely did!

I had the Beef Pappardelle which was really really good and filling. My husband had the Roasted Lingcod Cioppino which was not filling enough for him so I gave him the remainder of my dish which helped. He has a very hearty appetite and unfortunately several of the dishes are not enough for him. I, myself, never have a problem with the portion size so he is able to finish off my dish.

Delicious flavour on the veal chop, my dish was the appetizer cauliflower risotto with scallops.. Arborio rice And scallops cooked to perfection.
Only downfall, the herbed bread was warmed to a stale crisp, and the olive oil with balsamic was a little “off” maybe a poor quality? The main meal made up for it.

We were there to celebrate my birthday and the only person who acknowledged me was the hostess. Our server came off like he didn't want to be there. He messed up the dessert request as well, we asked for 3 desserts we got 4, we asked lime cheese cake and got strawberry. He even put the leftovers in a bag on its side. Overall couldn't get out of there fast enough.

Our waiter was fantastic. Unfortunately the food was bland . Mussels didn’t have much flavour , the scallops were $18 and there was only 3 . And no they weren’t large or even medium . The lamb was around $30 and it was 2 very small pieces on some mashed potatoes. Very disappointed in the lack of flavour and the portions

My wife ordered the surf and turf (Medium Rare). When it arrived, the steak was over cooked to the point of being medium well. Mistakes happen. What I was impressed about was how quickly the matter was rectified and how both the waitress and management continued to check on us throughout the meal to ensure everything was okay. Customer service was well beyond our expectations!

We have been many times my husband and I. All servers have been wonderful. But we had a new Person On Sunday night. Her name was Brittney?? (I hope I have her name correct). I know she was new because I asked her. And told her how amazing of a server she was. Relaxed attentive and and so friendly. Most people only here when there is a problem but more she say when the service and especially their server was amazing. Great job !!!

We had a reservation for Valentines night dinner. We found the restaurant nice for atmosphere and noise level, are food was not up to par. We had ordered beef short ribs which they were out of and substituted steak in place of for same price which was acceptable and then we added a lobster tail each. Both our lobster tails were cold and not cooked inside so not enjoyed for the price. Service was good both by hostess and server. Not sure about returning.
