I have never had anything here I didn't like. They have excellent steak sandwiches...always good. They did recently upgrade the décor, the bar area is quite nice, as is the dining area. However, the food prices wen up after that. Still, I go here as often as I am in the area and ready for food. I would recommend this... More

Hotel concierge recommended this restaurant and it was a HIT for the whole family! Large menu with tons of great choices for adults and kids. We were able to get a table for 10 even though the restaurant was packed. Excellent service even with our group of rowdy kids. I would go back for a date night.

We had not eaten since breakfast We ordered the stuffed mushrooms which were very large and stuffed. We both ordered a veal dish - Francese and Florentine. The meal came with... More

We each had the Veal Parmesan. Each meal was $19. Drinks were $2.50 each for coffee and diet coke. The food and service were good. The atmosphere was very nice also. I've had as good for less money.

We're in town on vacation and were looking for a good pizza (and a glass of wine). The pizza was great but the Chianti wasn't. I will return for pizza but save your money on the wine.

Went by to meet some friends for dinner. They had a reservation. I arrived just before they did, but assumed they were already seated. The place is actually quite small. Before I knew it, I had seen all the tables. Heading back to the door, we met. We were seated almost immediately, but then had to wait a long time... More

Taste of Italy has gone through some changes and all are good. Their menu is so big, it takes me forever to pick out what I want. They also do a great take out business. It is cozy and comfortable. The salads are really good as is everything else. Servers are great. What's not to like?

Nice little Italian restaurant. Very clean and staff is friendly and efficient. The bar is really pretty. I had chicken parm and it was very good. The chicken was obviously not a frozen cutlet! Had it with angel hair and the sauce was really tasty. My husband had shrimp parm and raved about the amount of shrimp in the dish.... More

My family eats out often, and we never before bothered to try Taste of Italy. I assumed it was just a take-out pizza kind of place. We were looking to try something different for Labor Day dinner, and Taste of Italy showed up on Open Table and we decided to give it a try. Looking at the photos online, I... More
