    Everything was very good from the food to the service. They were out of something to make a drink for my wife, and they came over and talked to her. Found something else that would work great for her, and she loved it. Environment was very nice they had the doors open. The only negative is the noise from the cars going by. That wouldn't hinder me from eating there again!

    Food was excellent as usual. Doors were open to the street and there was a pride parade, so very noisy. (Not the restaurant’s fault.) Waiter was good, but trying to be too fancy with the pouring of water and wine and was quite splashy.

    We usually love coming to Italyx but after our experience yesterday not sure when we’ll be back… the food was good as always but the service was truly terrible. Our waitress was honestly just rude and we really couldn’t wait to leave. I was served soup without a spoon so when I saw the waitress again I asked for a spoon. She looked at me like I was crazy. Then she aggressively put down a serving spoon- yes literally a serving spoon for me to eat a small bowl of soup with. Every question we asked she acted like we were the stupidest people in the world. It was just so disappointing. The food was good but the service really soured the experience and i do not want to return any time soon.

    We went to celebrate Father’s Day and my daughters birthday and we couldn’t wait to get the heck out of there. Unfortunately the meal took about two hours because of the absent mindedness of our server. Had to remind our server three times that we ordered a bottle of wine. Waited over an hour for simple pasta entrees because he forgot to ring them up, then he told us the wait was so long because the gluten free spaghetti takes so long to cook. Our first experience at ItalX was great, but this trip was just awful and I don’t know when we’ll be back.

    We just enjoyed another great dinner at ItalX with friends. The short rib special and Agnolotti Boscaiola entrees were incredible! The calamari, Prosciutto di Parma and Arancini appetizers were fantastic. Great wine selection and my favorite for dessert, the espresso martini! We will be back!

    A very nice atmosphere however the food was very disappointing and proportions were very small. Not a big selection of bourbon for a Kentucky restaurant. It was obvious that the food was prepared in advance as nothing was made fresh. The veal was very thick like chicken, and not pounded thin enough. Being born and raised in the Philly area, the food was not authentic Italian.

    Everything is great in terms of food and service . If doors are open to the street you should know that the car and ambulance noise from the street is REALLY loud.

    We enojoyed our meal at ItalX. Out waiter was excellent and the ambiance was excellent. The wine list was one of the best in Lexington. The food was prepared with a heavy handedness that was a little disappointing. The kale ceaser salad was heavy with bread crumbs and cheese. My pasta with shrimp was also heavy with cheese and the pasta was good but too aldante.

    Food and atmosphere great, unfortunately so noisy we could not enjoy conversation at our table because the noise level so high we couldn’t hear each other without yelling, I really don’t know what can be done about it…
