Excellent Italian fare and priced nice!

We were going to a show at the casino so I wanted a close locale and yet something more than the pedestrian meal experience. we chose the outdoor seating as it was such a nice night, but the inside looked very... read more

I am in sales and I dine out frequently on an expense account. I have also been through most of Italy so I like to think I know good Italian food when I see it. This restaurant is outstanding. Their veal dishes, especially the Saltambocca, are outstanding. They have a wonderful Bolognese as well - (sorry about my Italian spelling... More

We had a large group, the service was lovely and prompt. The food was amazing, especially the pasta. The food was absolutely perfectly cooked and served. By far our... More

We visited La Contessa three times in 2014 and it was by far the best restaurant we have experienced in this area. The quality was outstanding and the service even better. We tried to go there in late 2014 on a Saturday night and it was closed. As it was our favorite restaurant, we decided to try again for our... More

Don't let the title fool you, the food was very tasty and authentic, just nothing spectacular. Have been here a couple of times for work things so to be fair the larger group may be harder to service. I do like the atmosphere, the meal just took a really really long time to come out so I would want to... More

We left this restaurant feeling completely ripped off. Out of a group of 8 of us, I would say that maybe 2 people were sort of happy with their food. Maybe the chef is new because none of us were raving about the food like people are in the reviews. Everything was way overpriced, bland and disappointing. I would not... More

We ended up here because the top 7 places on the trip advisor reviews were all full. (New Years eve). Loved it. Went to a few of the others we weren't able to get a table on tonight previously. Can honestly say over all here was better than most. Service was good and very attentive, atmosphere was good. Food although... More

We have dined here before. The food is delicious, always. But service is slow. We had pasta (spaghetti, shrimp pasta), both were excellent. But it took 45 minutes to get our appetizer (soup and salad). So if you chose to dine here, you will enjoy the food, but be prepared to wait for service.

Came with husband a few months ago and was greeted by the friendly owner. They were about to close for lunch, but were more than happy to serve us! The food was great, and the service was exceptional !
