Food drinks and service was very good. Ie Italian eatery has been our favorite restaurant since the open. We were disappointed that the menu was very limited. Miss many of our old favorites. Please bring back the old chicken recipe vs the jerk chicken. More ravioli and squid ink pasta.

I’ve had the mushroom Capaletti many times and love it. But not this time. Hope they didn’t change the recipe. Was too rich or something, couldn’t put my finger on it. Obsessed with the bread and tiramisu tho!

Absolutely delicious! I would recommend the mushroom ravioli and the lamb. The service was fantastic and we loved the atmosphere and feel of the restaurant. We ordered some bolognase sauce to go and it made 3-4 meals and had the best flavor. I buy gift cards here all the time for my clients because it's my favorite locally owned restaurant. Nicole

This was a perfect evening. Our server was kind and informative. He explained the menu and answered our questions. But more than that, he made the most of his time to treat us as if we were the most important customers in the restaurant. This was our first meal out in a very long time and I was nervous. I am so glad we chose to spend our anniversary at I.E. The food was AMAZING and the room is very beautiful. Every staff member I saw was following COVID protocols, tables were spaced and the timing of our meal was perfect.

Very nice Valentine’s date. Lovely place and friendly service. The main dishes were delicious (we had the risotto with seared scallops and the rigatoni). The wines were nice. The flourless chocolate cake was very dry and crumbly, so that one is an opportunity for improvement.
Overall I would recommend.

Our first time eating out after a year of Covid restrictions was at the Italian Eatery. The food was outstanding (the scallop risotto!!) and the service great. Our evening out was relaxing, even under the circumstances. My husband and I were seated in a booth with plenty of room around us and the wait staff were diligent about keeping masks on the whole time. My only concern was that we were originally going to be seated at a high top and I was told on the phone that there were barriers in place but that is not true for the high tops. This was the day before Valentine's Day so maybe it was especially busy and people were seated where they wouldn't normally be, but I personally would not feel comfortable sitting at one of those tables. Just be sure to ask your specific questions if you have any Covid concerns. Thanks for a lovely night out!

Loved this restaurant. This was one of the best Italian restaurants I have ever been to. The waiter was great and made time to greet us and go in-depth about every dish and his personal favorites. The ambiance was relaxing enough to feel comfortable but still felt up scale.

Met a girlfriend for dinner and sat in the bar. Enrique was our server and was wonderful. We shared three plates, 720 day dried prosciutto and burrata, shaved root salad and garganelli (wild boar meatballs!) The food was well prepared and delicious. Timing of portions being brought out was perfect. Will return soon-a neighborhood gem!
