Good Italian Fare and Ambiance

It took them a while to seat me so I sat at the bar. Great dinner for someone from the west who misses the 1970's Italian restaurant experience.

I love going to Jimmy's. Old school completely and excellent food. Nick makes the BEST martini ever! Any Italian would love it here, just saying. Ha Ha, seriously though, go there to "dine," enjoy your company and the great food.

Good old school Italian. We ordered lobster ravioli, linguine with white clam sauce and ziti bolognese, all very good. For apps we had the clams casino and clams oreganato, both very tasty. The tiramisu for dessert was excellent. Would recommend Jimmy's for a good Italian dinner. Parking is on premises and valet. The person taking my reservation was not the... More

Classic old school Italian. Nice staff very helpful and pleasant. The portions were huge, but just ok. My starter was over cooked and the pasta was swimming in so much sauce it was a bit overwhelming. But they seem to always be busy and the locals seem to like it.

Jimmy's was recommended by several co-workers for a birthday dinner. We had an average meal, 2 appetizers, nothing special, a great salad served family style, and 3 satisfactory meals. Mahi mahi special was OK, a little dry, Stuffed sole was average as the stuffing was pretty much tasteless, Shrimp parmesan was good, very tasty cheese and sauce. Our server was... More

Had my Mom's 84th birthday party at Jimmy's last night. I cannot thank Diane, Greta and Kim enough for their impeccable customer service in setting up the party. Cindy our waitress was FLAWLESS! The food was off the chart! Thank you. Susan Haley.

We enjoyed Jimmy's. I recommend the flounder with almonds. The prices are not particularly low, the décor is not trendy but comfortable, the restaurant has a quiet ambiance, and the service is good. All in all, it is worth going there and I will go back for the fish dish.

Happened upon this place, saw the jammed parking lot (valet parking) and expected a wait. But we were seated promptly and found the place to be huge! Good service, quality traditional Italian...a nice experience!

I've been to Jimmy's twice in the past three weeks. I've been to Jimmy's many times over the past 25 years and I have to say that it seems like Jimmy's really upped the volume on their food. The Sole Amandine was fantastic and the Rigatoni Giovanni phenomenal. Order the Morris Potatoes and a salad to begin and finish it... More
