For years, Paolo and Teresa Gaspari honored their Italian roots by bringing people together to enjoy good food, great wine and the company of friends and family. In 2019, John Ekizian took the reins and remains excited to continue the tradition of La Famiglia. The simplicity and perfection of fresh ingredients is the root of every meal we prepare here at La Famiglia, and all of our dishes pair beautifully with our vast collection of fine wines. From our pasta to our sauces, even to our freshly-squeezed lemon juice, we start from scratch. One bite, and you’ll understand the difference that handmade truly makes. Our courteous and attentive wait staff is ready to welcome you. Whether you’re joining us for a special night out, a family gathering or simply because you’re craving a delicious Italian meal, we hope you’ll spend it with La Famiglia.

The food was great, but the service was horrible! We went twenty minutes before we saw our waitress and we kept getting forgotten. The food was amazing though, just over priced for the service we recieved.

Caesar salad was over garlicky. Service was disappointing. We had to ask for bread when our dinner arrived and we had not been offered any but we had bread plates so assumed we should have been given bread. Our server brought a few and pieces and said she would bring us more when it gets out of the oven. She asked if we wanted parmesan cheese (gave just a little cheese) but never came back to ask if we needed anything more (would have asked for more cheese), how our food was, or brought the promised bread to us. Didn't see her again until she asked if we wanted dessert. Won't go back.

My husband had the salmon special and I had spaghetti and meatballs. We both had a house salad. We shared a coconut cheesecake slice for dessert. I had a Cosmo, glass of red house wine, and a Brandy Alexander (it was our 41st anniversary so I was celebrating). My husband had his standby Jack Daniels with lemon wedges. As always the restaurant did not disappoint. Great service. Great food. Just love this restaurant. Can't wait to go back.

We enjoyed the restaurant as the food was very good.
We had a very nice waitress who was very knowledgeable and patient. My husband couldn’t decide what type of red wine to have and so she let him taste a few. I knew exactly what I wanted which was an amaretto sour and it was delicious.
I also ordered a half bottle of the Rombauer Cabernet Sauvignon for $38 which I thought was quite reasonable. I had an appetizer of Cristini Barata with pesto and tomatoes. The pesto was the best I’ve ever had. My husband had the cannelloni with half marinara sauce half Alfredo sauce. He also thought it was delicious and did enjoy the Alfredo sauce a little bit more than the marinara sauce. He had the organic beet salad with goat cheese and greens. Nice and fresh. We were celebrating his promotion at work and Valentine’s Day. We enjoyed it very much and we will definitely be back.

we haven’t ate here in a while, so we were excited for dinner. our server was great, i asked for a specific dish that was not on the menu and she said absolutely! it came and it was exactly what i was hoping for! my wife’s entree as well as our appetizers were fantastic! the only critique i might have is, i would have liked more beets in the arugula beet salad. from now on, we will not wait so to return!

Nice ambiance, great food. With Covid-19 regulations at 25% capacity, I would have expected the diners would be spread out through the room. Instead they seemed to be seating people all in the same area, with vacant tables at the back of the room. That was a little disappointing. Our table for two was quite long (looked like half a regular table) which made conversation hard for us old folks. The staff seemed very nice and helpful, and because it was my birthday we were given a generous serving of their signature dessert with a candle on it (nice touch). I imagine this will be a much more fun experience when we get past Covid, but it was still good to be able to get out and have a nice meal together.

We have had Italian food all over the States and this is hands down the best any of us have had. We tried four appetizers with wine before our meal...GOODNESS we would come back just for those but the star was all four dishes we had. Service EXCELLENT, atmosphere beautiful, location trendy. OpenTable always makes my reservations seamless.
