We love Remini's and enjoy having date night there. The best local Italian restaurant in our opinion, highly recommended! They make their bread from scratch and it's wonderful.

We enjoyed Remini's.
Pros: good food, good service, reasonable prices.
Cons: chairs very uncomfortable and the tables that have a half booth the back of the booth is awful. They need to do something about that.
Very small and tables very close to one another.
Very noisy.
We will go back but probably earlier in the day.

It was Valentine's night, so probably more crowded than usual. Nice atmosphere, had reservations so prompt seating. Service was slow, when asked about meal was told food was on the way, then 15 minutes later still had not arrived and told same thing. Waited about 1 hour from time ordered until time entree arrived. When food arrived, it had great flavor, but was not very hot. Took most home to reheat in microwave as leftovers. Overall, feel this is great place with great food and would go back, but maybe not on Valentines night.

We've been eating at Remini's for approximately 5 years. During this time the business appears to have grown significantly, as evidenced by their expansion, and doubling their space, a couple of years ago. Our latest visit found that the food is as wonderful as ever. The wait staff was friendly but didn't provide nearly the personalized service we've come accustomed to receiving from this restaurant. The atmosphere is now less pleasing as they are packed to the gills and have tables / patrons sitting way to close to one another. The noise level was such that it was hard to carry on a conversion with my wife sitting next to me. It's time for Remini's to expand again or even move to, or build, a more expansive location. They obviously are doing a bang up business, but I'll be reluctant to repeat our most recent experience. Carryout is always an option, and may be in my future, although I do very little carrying out.

This was our first time dining at Remini’s and we’ll definitely be back. We ordered family style and we had plenty of food and took a serving home with us. Great value for exceptional quality! It was fun watching the chefs work in the open kitchen.

Love this place. Food always great. Minor hiccup with server on the order. Immediately addressed.

Family meals are enough for 3 days leftovers for both of us. Caesar salad always perfect.

Food was very bland. My wife and are in our 20’s and waitress had no interest in giving us attention thinking we wouldn’t tip like the older customers. Food has little to no flavor at all. Skip here and go to Olive Garden and have a good Italian meal.

Food at Remini's is always very fresh and portions ample. I especially like the greek salad and the shrimp and scallops primavera. We have eaten here frequently in the past and after the remodel the ambience is much nicer.

The food is made fresh in sight of most tables. The amounts are enormous and leftovers are likely. Service was friendly and attentive. Beer and wine variety adequate, but would be better if increased by adding more local brewers and vineyards. Great local restaurant.

The food was good and the portions were large. Being a Friday night, it was crowded but our table was ready and waiting for us. It irritates me to have to pay extra for a salad, but I did and it was a good size and tasty. I had a delicious glass of wine. I just wish I could remember the brand!

Very disappointed in our seating. Had a reservation and was squeezed into a tiny table next to the front window. Very noisy and not aesthetically pleasing. Could not concentrate on our conversation because of the loud four-person party seated next to us.

Worse Italian food we have ever tasted. Lasagna dish was so soupy, you needed a spoon to eat it. Noodles were non existent. The Pasta Natale was so tasteless, no amount of extra cheese was going to fix it. PS. don't forget to wear your sunglasses because the sun comes right through the shades.

We just love coming here. Their sauce is the best and the meatballs are so flavorful and light. The ravioli are the biggest and tastiest I've ever had. You can't beat the family meals...so much food we always get a to-go box~ The wine selection and prices are great. Never a disappointment here!
