    Perfect atmosphere for any occasion. Some people were in casual, some in fancier clothes. The food was outstanding! Our server was so helpful when choosing a wine and really appreciated how comfortable they made our date night.

    The food we very good, but the portions just slightly on the smaller side. This would have been ok if we were given a complimentary loaf of bread. We did order an appetizer, however it would have been nice to have some bread on the side to eat with our entrees. Especially with the price of dinner. Most restaurants on this level serve bread.

    Food was delicious, but not delivered hot. Service was good. This is a small criticism: the bill should be delivered in a tray or in a folder of some sort. An unpolished end to a good dinner

    Food did not taste fresh—like it had been sitting out, and they tried to get too creative on some classic dishes like Tiramisu and honestly ruined the integrity of the recipe. Sadly, this was a very disappointing experience.

    Hannah was a wonderful server. It was our first time there. She went over the menu with us and gave good recommendations for appetizers. Joe was also great. We spoke prior to our reservation regarding parking. He was very friendly and helpful. Overall we really enjoyed celebrating my birthday. We'll be back there again soon and recommend it to friends.

    The food was great, and it is a really neat venue. They have a full bar, but we were told they were out of several of the cocktails that were on the menu, so I'm assuming they make them in bulk beforehand? Not sure - overall, it was a great experience and I would go again.

    My fourth visit to ItaX. I have enjoyed my visit every time. The cuisine always keeps me engaged, the special this night was stuffed leeks which were inventive and delicious. The menu and wine list are expansive with plenty of interest to sustain multiple visits. I did find the noise level to be distracting this time--a Friday night with extraneous traffic noise from Main Street in addition to a boisterous and full dining room. I will continue to patronize this jewel in the Lexington dining scene.

    Always great food. The lasagna was absolutely amazing. Adding the whipped ricotta and balsamic-olive oil combo to the bread was a great move. The veal Marsala dish was tender, silky and so flavorful. Drinks were strong and tasty. The chocolate budini was good, but the raspberry sauce was a touch bitter. Overall great meal.

    We enjoyed a wonderful birthday lunch at ItalX. The food and the service were both wonderful. We particularly liked the loaf of focaccia served with a ricotta spread, and the linguine carbonara with shrimp. The connected garage parking is very convenient.

    Love the atmosphere and huge doors that open to downtown for people watching. The foccacia with whipped ricotta was good and both drinks were good. I think generally good value for the money however my husbands gnocchi seemed to lack a little flavor and my cacio e pepe was very creamy/saucey instead of seasoned and buttered to let the pasta/noodles shine. Attentive server.

    The vibe on a Saturday night is energetic! Grace, our server, was top notch. An order of meatballs never arrived and ended up being take-home food :( Out of six meals, four were just okay. I felt prices were high for the quality of food
