Sometimes you want the kind of place you went as a kid. This place fills the bill! The service is good and the food is consistently tasty. If you are looking for fancy dining, take a pass. If you want a goog old fashioned Italian restaurant... look no further

Our small group specifically made New Year's Eve reservations at Maisano's as we had dined there the previous New Year's Eve. Last year, I couldn't say enough good things. This year, not so much. Despite making a reservation several days in advance, we were offered a booth which would have put someone in the aisleway. We reiterated that we had... More

I love Italian food, so I enjoyed the food. The decor, though, needs to be updated. We were squished into a separate room and I couldn't get up if I had to! I will recommend another place next year.

A small place located in a strip mall, but don't get fooled by the location. The atmosphere and decorations are great, and the food is fantastic!

Disclaimer - After spending over a week in Italy on our honeymoon, my wife and I agree Italian food in the US is typically disappointing in comparison. My wife and I ate here the other day for dinner. I had spaghetti and meatballs and she had the sausage baci al forno. We both thought the food was okay, but not... More

We were 4 friends. Seated promptly in a back corner. The food was terrific and plentiful. I had eggplant parm., my husband had spaghetti and meatballs. Our waitress Alex (female) was not very attentive. Forgot to bring dressings for our salads. Did not refill our water glasses. I requested an extra napkin, never got it. Our friends remarked how she... More

We ate here with another family, kids and adults enjoyed their food. Chicken Marsala best I've ever had! Service was excellent. We'll be back next time we're in the area.

Service was very good. Waitress was friendly, and very knowledgeable of the menu, and specials. Food was good. It was very noisy, and could not hear the waitress, or ourselves talk. This was our 30th anniversary, and we were from Ohio, visiting family. Thought it would be nice to have dinner in an authentic Italian restaurant. But kind a disappointed... More

Wow. All these good reviews lead me to believe we just hit a bad night. Came in and were pleased that they did their best to get us seated in about 15 minutes. VERY crowded and noisy... Why do people scream at people sitting 3 feet away? I'll never understand. Lol. Party ordered wine - I ordered espresso which was... More

Visited with work colleagues. Great Italian cuisine, attentive, friendly staff. Check out the specials board for some great dishes. On my list of must visits when I'm over from the UK.
