I'm going to be honest. Their pizzas are not very good. From the crust to the toppings to the presentation, it's just very below average pizza.

For such a nice place with great decor, nice atmosphere, good location, and history, they should be producing a better product.

Finally, a restaurant in SLC that can cook scallops to perfection; not too quickly so that the inside is undercooked and not too long so that they are rubbery. I really enjoyed the scallops dish, and my wife thought her pasta dish was quite good. The waiter's wine suggestions were good and explained the differences between wines that were spot on (since I tried both). The atmosphere and service were comfortable and attentive. Everything was much better than in our prior visits and I highly recommend this restaurant.

We enjoyed everything we ordered. Our server was fun and an excellent advisor. He balanced attentive service with limited interruptions perfectly. Normally Italian food is boring but this place gives so many out of the box options, it’s fun all over again.

Always good food. Lasagna was overcooked blackened on top. Couldn’t send back since we had play tickets. Pepe pasta was great. My wife shares!

Usually excellent food, but the Caesar salad pizza was boring, dry, and flavorless.

First time there and were so disappointed in the service. Our waitress seemed to be having an off night from the moment we sat down. Went on New Year’s Eve but had early 7pm reservations and the restaurants as only about 3/4 full. Rarely checked in on, never checked after the final course was served. We would have love to order coffee or a bottle of champagne. At one point we noticed some bags of what looked like flour or other bread making ingredients and we asked about them. Server said they were for the guests tonight and we would get them later. We thought that was a wonderful surprise but never heard anything else or received anything. Just an awkward service experience- for reference I did work in the service industry for 10ish years.
Ambiance was wonderful, food was pretty good, cost /price point was fantastic. Service was a huge bummer.

Appetizer was disappointing, did not match description at all. Waitress was aware of our disappointment but never saw a manager and it was not taken off the bill. Recommended wine was ok. Salad was excellent, main courses were very good.

We enjoyed Christmas Eve at Stoneground. We loved the ambiance, and the food was delicious. My husband had the lasagna and I had the chef's pasta of the day. Both were yummy. We shared the homemade donuts for dessert and they were fantastic. We will definitely be back.

Food was good... atmosphere great... don’t bring pizza fast enough on the Sunday supper... maybe intentional.... left not completely full due to waiting to long for pizza to come around

Avoid prefixe Sunday’s, underwhelming pizza served at incremental pace is an absolute dissuasion. Normal day, normal fare though is highly suitable and recommended.

We love the food and ambiance here. It’s a great date night place and we often bring out of town guests. The food is always something special. On this night, however, the service was rather inattentive. Generally, however, the service is as good as the meal.

The service was good. Lasagna was good. I wouldn’t recommend the Bologna’s. Dry and the noodles were undercooked. We got the meat and cheese board for an appetizer which was pretty good too. Overall just an average Italian restaurant. I wouldn’t encourage anyone to go.
