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!

Very good food, vety good service, and very good value. When ordering drinks they were out of stock on hard cider and two different beers before they were able to fill a drink order. Tables are very close in space and it is loud.

My wife and I and another couple had dinner at Remini's, spurred by having received a gift card to the restaurant. The ambience was that of an average strip center storefront restaurant, with few distinguishing features. The menu offered a variety of mostly-Italian offerings. The portions were enormous, much more than most people could eat with enjoyment, but the quality of the cooking was very disappointing. My Chicken Parmesan was over-breaded and over-cooked; the very large portion was served on a bowl of spaghetti that was so full I couldn't cut the chicken without spilling food onto the table. A companion had the spaghetti and sausage which was also very generous but overcooked. Our server was pleasant but not as attentive as we might have liked; that could be because we had requested to be in a quieter second room which only had a few diners. Overall, we do not plan to return.

Really enjoyed our first visit. We sat in the newly constructed area, and the only thing that was uncomfortable strictly from a mechanical perspective was the seating. We sat at a table that had one side with chairs and the other was the bench against the wall. The bench side is too high for the table. It makes the person across from you too short, and it was not comfortable to be so high above the table. But the food was great...the ambiance was very quiet, but not really warm like you would expect from an Italian restaurant in the new area. We will return though...just ask to be seated in the area without the bench seating along the wall.

When we first came in I was really excited. The atmosphere seemed great so I thought the food would be too. We ordered the spinach dip and bruschetta to start and they both seriously lacked flavor. The entree's were okay.. but I won't go back. I didn't like it that much for what we paid.

We arrived on time and were seated immediately in the window with blazing sun & heat......we asked to move which we did. We asked for Riesling wine and were told they done sell it.....we had it on our last visit. Our food order was Chicken Parmesan family style which included a Caesar salad that was very fresh and crisp. When the chicken parm came, it was huge but there was very little tomato sauce and the chicken didn’t have any flavor.......it needed spicing up. A small amount of the chicken has a spongy chewy texture. The whole staff seemed to be somewhat unorganized. Finally, at one point you could see smoke coming from the cooking area throughout which meant our clothes smelled like food when we got home. It was a disappointment Birthday celebration.

Took our neighborhood group. We really enjoyed the food and service. It was a bit cozy due to the small size of the restaurant but they are expanding so we look forward to the larger space. Go early on a Friday night as there was a long line waiting for a table. All in all a good meal and place for our group.

Not what I would consider traditional Italian fare. The lasagna wasn’t baked, the ricotta cheese sloppy. The chicken was cut into cubes and precooked, and sautéed to heat and incorporate into my dish when ordered. I was disappointed, had hoped to find a new favorite. Maybe they are better at lunches.

Remini's had several items on the menu that were delicious and fairly priced. i would recommend asking for a table away from the door. In the winter it can be cold sitting there. In fact, they probably should just eliminate the table that they gave us. I have heard that they are expanding into an unoccupied space next door which should allow them to do something about that table.

My friend was served a chicken dish where the presentation was not appetizing. The plate was filled from end to end and the chicken mixture piled on. It was too much to eat and looked like it was thrown on the plate.

I was not happy with my chicken souvlaki. Instead of grilled it was in a bowl in broth. The Greek salad was very good. My husband thought his chicken Marsala was bland. We have had some very good sandwiches there though in the past.

Excellent Italian food, especially the spaghetti carbonara. The single portions are more than enough for 2 people, and they also have family portions. The wine list is basic, mostly Italian, and very reasonably priced. As I recall, there is no muzak, which is a plus for conversation. You can hear the kitchen, but that is all part of the experience.
