Didn't expect to find as good an Italian restaurant in this area, in a strip mall. Calamari with hot peppers was excellent. Two of us had lunch portions and they were large. Veal and chicken parmigianas were very good as was the pasta giardino. Service was very good. Owners from Brooklyn. Prices very reasonable.

We went here for dinner because it was highly recommended by this website. Well I was disappointed by the service and the meal. First the waiter was new and couldn't recommend anything but chicken alfredo, I thought wow that's the best you can do! Then I ordered the "Italian Feast" which comes with lots of food. We ordered a appetizer... More

Taste of Italy has always been one of my favorite restaurants, but today was a different experience. The hostess forgot to call my name to seat my husband and me after we waited 25-30 minutes for a 15 minute wait time. She completely forgot about us and it wasn't overly busy. My chicken broccoli alfredo meal wasn't good. My chicken... More

Thought it was just another pizza bar and grille but once inside realized it was full service for menu. Been there twice now this past month and dinner with wife. All 4 meals were tasty ... Well prepared ... Plenty of room and found the service pretty good... Overall a good reasonable price for a family ding experience

This was a convenient location to meet friends. Enjoyed the tradition pizza with black olives and mushrooms. Was disappointed the mushrooms were canned, not fresh.

What a great place! Amazing food and drinks! Super cool atmosphere. They have a speak easy in the back called 'Hush' but it was closed on our visit. It was a very nice dinner and would love to go back! Try the lobster ravioli.

It's been a few years since I ate here and it was such a disappointment. I went with two friends - we brought a friend who was visiting from a small town out west and was hungry for "real" Italian food. It used to be a great place but this time, not. They mixed up the dishes so that my... More

What can I say? Between the great service, nice decor and great selection, it sounds good. However, the food was also fantastic. That was the consensus of four very different ladies with very different tastes. This is impressive considering no one got the same thing or any specials. House dressing is delicious!
