Our server was amazing! I had tried a blueberry lemonade drink, wasn’t a fan, so our waiter recommended a peach cosmo which was absolutely delicious!! I ordered a pasta dish with shrimp, crab, and scallops. It was awesome! My dad and my son order lobster ravioli which they loved. My other son ordered chicken Alfredo and didn’t like it. He didn’t like how it came with tortellini and the he wasn’t thrilled with the taste of the Alfredo sauce. He ended up getting a cheeseburger. The prices are definitely on the higher end but I overall enjoyed the atmosphere, the drinks, and the food. Everything can’t always be perfect every time. I just know not to let my one son get chicken Alfredo next time.
I definitely do recommend though!!

Wonderful dinner here last night. We tried some of their signature cocktails and small plates everything was delicious. I miss reading off a regular sized menu and not having to use my smartphone to see the selections.

Italian Affair was a nice dining experience overall. We were hoping to order the special grilled veal chop only to find out they ran out. The grilled steak topped with onions and mushrooms tasted good but it was a bit overcooked (medium well instead of the requested medium) and was a bit oily with the added toppings. Wine offerings were delicious. Service was very good.

We made a last minute decision to go out to dinner and wanted to try some place new. Went on OpenTable and found Italian Affair Restaurant...what a great find!!! We sat in the bar and the bartender was AMAZING!!! He was friendly, attentive, and was able to answer every question we had about the items on the menu. We settled on two appetizers, Bang Bang Shrimp and Fried Calamari. Both were delicious. The sauce on the Bang Bang Shrimp was both sweet and tangy without being overly spicy. The calamari was breaded and fried perfectly, not too much breading, and the tomato dipping sauce had a mild sweetness that complemented the sauce perfectly. In addition to the appetizers we also had the Buffalo Chicken pizza and The Bang Bang Burger. The pizza was delicious. The crust was crispy without being burnt. The buffalo sauce was spicy, but not to the point of being inedible. The combination of mozzarella and gorgonzola gave the pizza a traditional feel with a little bit...a really great combination. The burger was cooked to the perfect requested mid-rare with just enough toppings to compliment but not overpower the burger. The only thing I regret is not having enough room for dessert. I would definitely recommend Italian Affair Restaurant and will certainly be going back.

This was our first time here. I took my husband and 3 of our boys and their girlfriends/wives. It was wonderful. I’m not one for pasta or risotto so I was very happy to see other options. There was a lot to choose from and everything was great. Laura was our server and she was wonderful!!! There was another gentleman helping her and he was on top of everything. He brought water refills without even asking and removing empty plates. We didn’t have to ask for anything. I will definitely come back again.

The food was good. Casey was very sweet , our server,and spoiled us.
Only complaint..my meal was chicken parm with linguini, and i asked to substitue alfredo sauce on my pasta in place of marinara and they up charged 7.00..That's pretty steep..My pasta was suppose have marinara, so what is the huge difference and when it arrived, there was barely any sauce..They were gonna charge again when i asked for a bit more..
A monkey dish with about 4 table spoonsful.. They were gonna additionally charge for that portion per the kitchen.
Rediculous..The food was good, but, where did they figure in the cost already included in my pasta with my meal. Confounding..

We had a 5:45 reservation but weren’t served our dinner until 7:35. This was after we had to complain to a manager about the long wait. Other couples arrived after us, were served their dinners and left while we waited. The manager finally delivered our dinners but one dinner had asparagus in it which the person who ordered specifically told the server she couldn’t eat. The manager did make another meal for her to go since we had waited so long for the food to arrive. Two of us ended up sharing one dinner. While waiting for our dinner to arrive we had to ask our server four times for additional bread and oil to hold us over. The manager stated he would take her dinner off the bill but when the check arrived we had to have the server remove it from the bill. The food was very good when we finally received it though. We were just turned off by the long wait. When we arrived there were only a few tables occupied which is why we don’t understand the long wait. Good food but I don’t think we will return here.

It is a very nice place, unfortunately we happen to sit next to a extremely loud inconsiderate person and asked to be moved. The waiter and manager were extremely accommodating. Our son is special needs and the noise was really affecting him. We were moved to a very nice both and well treated. I couldn’t be happier with management and waiter they made our night very enjoyable. Great meals, great service and great family dinner. We will definitely be back again soon.

Dining at Italian Affair was another overall very good experience. Our server was outstanding and checked with us every so often to make sure all was good. The food was also very good; my wife enjoyed her stuffed pork chop and I had the veal chop special, which was also good despite being overcooked. I asked for it medium temp, and so our server informed the kitchen of my request but it came back medium well to well done. Since I had already had several bites hoping that it would be less well done cutting closer to the bone, it was not so I decided to keep it as it was tender and had great flavor. We plan to return sometime in the future as this is one of our go-to places to dine.

2 dinners, 1 glass of wine each, 1 appetizer was about $95 w/o the tip. Food was good. One entree was overpriced at $30. It’s a family type place , nothing special about it, so I’d consider it pricey.

Waiter had slight attitude. Charging $2.50 more to upgrade salad to Caesar salad and putting 3 croutons on salad the house salad only come oil/ vinegar just lettuce and some carrot pretty sad.My mother order tortellini they brought out a bowl of tortellini with no sauce which when we said where the sauce they said you did say what sauce you wanted but did bring out a bowl of sauce after 5 minutes waiting.I order chicken parm but they brought out veal parm.
