    Very inviting atmosphere for a local Italian Bistro. Servers very pleasant and helpful. Food was served timely and in all but one had to be heated up. Liked the open view of kitchen. Owner or manager checked on us and was very nice, Would recommend to others.

    The service and the food was good. The food can be inconsistent. The lasagne was greasy, and it is not normally/ We have one of the same appetizers (3 or 4 times) and it was plated differently this time again. We like that we are able to get a reservation through open table.

    I was disappointed in this restaurant. I ordered spaghetti and meatballs. The meatballs were delicious ... the sauce a bit bland. My biggest disappointment was not being served crusty Italian bread with dinner. One could order a garlic bread covered with cheese at an additional cost, but I have never gone to an Italian restaurant that did not serve complimentary bread. Actually, I would have preferred pay $1-2 more for my dinner and have bread included. The table was so bare. I did finish my entree but felt unsatisfied. I did not order dessert as I do not care for tiramasu. All in all, I was excited to try a new restaurant, but doubt that I will return. Also, the service was mediocre to poor. Water glass was empty for quite a while until the server appeared.

    First time. Excellent food, we shared a chopped salad and a calzone. Service was wonderful. Wine choices were nicely paired with the meal, recommended by our server. Ate outside which is facing the parking lot so not the most romantic. Would definitely go back!

    I was surprised by a few things about Sfizio. One was just how easy it was to get a table, given the great reviews. Two was just how excellent the food was. That pizza was among the best I've ever had, and I'm a New Yorker. It rivals if not beats straight up Pizzeria Bianco in the wood-fired arena. Full of flavor and beautifully prepared. Perfect. I wouldn't say the service was quite as good; a little slow, a little odd in terms of how our waiter spoke to us. But I'd take that any day if it means I get pizza this good!
