    The service was outstanding and the food is delicious. We enjoy the atmosphere and the owners are so friendly. It’s our community’s local place where everyone knows your name. The lasagna is light and amazing. The Chicken Parmesan served with spaghetti with marinara or pasta e olio is wonderfully good.

    We always enjoy our meals at Sfizi. The new owner and his staff provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere. They have an interesting and broad selection of wines available. The food is nicely prepared and delicious. It's a gem in the Little City.

    Sfitzi is always good and this night was not a exception. I had the chicken parm and it was excellent. I had the chocolate cheesecake and it was great. My wife had seafood and a dessert and she loved it.

    Lunch was very nice, but the restaurant was almost empty. My date had the lamb chop, which was very tender and tasty. I had the Caesar salad, which was quite bland and not in the classic style (no anchovies). Service was very attentive. A little pricey for lunch. I would go back again for dinner.

    Our meals started off with good-tasting bread with high quality dipping oil. My seafood dish with linguini included some good tasty seafood. However, I found the tomato sauce to not be appetizing enough. The chicken dish was good but not outstanding. The server was attentive.

    We had not dined at Sfizi for 2 years, even though it was one of our go-to Italian restaurants, as our last experience during Covid was very disappointing. Well, Sfizi is back. It is now a white table cloth eatery, with matching service and exquisitely crafted food. The saltimbocca was delicious, and the Gorgonzola tortellini covered in Parmesan sauce was superb (even though I normally avoid sun-dried tomatoes, they combined perfectly in this dish. We had a great meal and will be going back soon.

    Very sad this had been our go to restaurant Italian a good value. Our last visit very disappointed. Prices gone way up don’t get salad or pasta with dinners even tho prices up like 10-20%. Sadly we won’t return lost a great place on our go to list. Probably had been there 20 times with friends last couple of years. Sad changes. Good luck but very disappointed.

    The food and service were as good as ever, but the prices have gone up dramatically. The desserts alone were $12.95 each. We used to consider sfizi a reasonably priced neighborhood gem, but sadly that's no longer the case.

    Sfizi is by far, one of the best Italian restaurants in the area. Aside from the food being amazing, they staff are friendly and attentive. They have an impressive wine selection and desserts as well. Sfizi is a must visit!

    We have been patrons of Sfizi for a long time, but when it was sold to new owners we stopped going. We decided to return and were pleasantly surprised to find that the food quality had remained the same. The menu was changed a bit, but perhaps for even the best. The biggest difference is the cost of the wines. The former owner priced the wines quite modestly and therefore we often left with a case or two. The new owner has raised the wine bottle prices.

    We have been regulars at Sfizi but away the past few months. Since changing owners the prices are up for food and wine and the service was slow. We will keep trying but we’re disappointed in our last outing.
