Went to dinner at 6:30 pm on Saturday night with wife and daughter. My wife ordered Cannelloni Ripieni con Pesto Genovese, described in the menu as a hollow pasta stuffed with jumbo lump crab and Maine lobster, béchamel pesto sauce. My wife is allergic to shrimp so she confirmed with the waitress that the Cannelloni was stuffed with lump crab and lobster as stated on the menu. However, when the dish was delivered, my wife quickly discovered that instead of being stuffed with jumbo lump crab and Maine lobster, the Cannelloni was stuffed with crawfish.
My wife showed the dish to the waitress, who didn’t know what crawfish looked like. She suggested that we speak to the manager. The General Manager, Rocco, came over and said that the kitchen must have used crawfish by mistake. I told him that it looked to me like a bait and switch, knowing that most customers wouldn’t be attentive enough to catch the much cheaper substitution of crawfish. He then said that the dish was a special two nights prior, which also doesn’t make sense. Did he really mean that they were serving meals made two days earlier? (According to their website, the special on Thursday was Salmon Neptune with crab meat and lobster sauce and there were no other specials this week with crawfish.) I then told the General Manager that my wife was allergic to shrimp and doesn’t eat crawfish, so we don’t know what kind of reaction she was going to have and that I was not going to pay for the entire dinner. He agreed and offered my wife something else. She asked for a Caprese Salad. The salad that was delivered did not have the “vine” tomatoes as described in the menu, unless by “vine” they mean unripe. Again, the dish she ordered was inedible.
The only bright spot in customer service was our waitress, Erin, who was very pleasant and attentive. Our visit tonight confirms what we’ve heard from others that the new GM and chef don’t care about the customer.
We ate here 2 nights in a row. Compared to other places we could find, it appeared to have better menu and food selections. We were not disappointed by our choices. Everything was very good. They seem to run wine specials as we had wine both nights that was very good.
our server talked a lot and spilled a bit of wine, I think she was nervous.
If I am back in Quantico, would most likely return here as they have good food, reasonable prices and service is solid
They were having a wedding there -- right in the middle of the restaurant. Had they told me that I would never have made my reservations. Won't go there again.
Service has changed, no long do I feel special, Nino the manager is gone, and so feel of Italy the restaurant had. . Food is great! Although, they run out of featured items fast ( we did not get our oysters even though it is a raw bar) the drinks are fine, but the bar tender may not want to it get right if have special taste. I have eaten here several times in the past and it was one my favorite, I took a long break to find these changes The manager moved out and so did the specialness.
My wife and I went here for out anniversary and we had a great time. The food was delicious, we had a hard time deciding on what to have even though their menu is not very large. For an appetizer we had the four cheese, lobster, and craw fish dip; fantastic. For entrees we had the pesto linguine with shrimp and the tortellini in mushroom and prosciutto sauce. Both were excellent. Service was fast and friendly and there is man playing a piano (synthesizer) and singing in the background which give the place a nice ambiance. Th location is not where you would expect to find such a nice place, but whatever they have to do to stay in business I support. We don't have many nice little restaurants in Stafford. It is suitable for kids but I don't think they have a very extensive kids menu.
This is the second time my husband and I came to this restaurant. Just like last time we loved the food and the service is very friendly. We have recommend this restaurant to many family and friends and will continue to do so!
I went with my son for dinner , this being our first visit to the restaurant. We were both satisfied with the atmosphere, food, and service. I would not hesitate to recommend it to family and friends. While not a restaurant I would frequent regularly, I would choose it for special occasions for its above average satisfaction. It stands out as a bright star in Stafford's constellation of dining offerings.
First time s charm, came back again! Excellent first time and I decided to bring some friends. Vino, pasta, veal, meatballs, all excellent!
Food is still really great. Had a new server and he was a bit sloppy. I usually have great service but, management is in transition. Newer servers need better training and things will improve greatly.
We went to Zibibbo 73 for Easter brunch. It was our first visit. It's a nice place and the food was great. The kids menu isn't huge but it's big enough. Our kids loved theirs and cleaned their plates. Service was good and friendly. Can't wait to get back for a date night.
