Fabulous Meal and excellent service

We came with a large group and were immediately served. The food came out hot and tasty. My wife ordered lamb chops and was delighted to receive 8 on her plate. Wow. We took half home. The drinks were tasty and well poured. We will come back.

Came here for lunch with a group of friends and we're delighted with the food. Each dish surpassed our expectations in quality and size. The food was very fresh and delicious. Coupled with an excellent waiter, Soloman, who was polite, funny, friendly and very accommodating, we had a lovely lunch meal.

Taste of Italy is incredible, It is in a strip mall so many are turned off but the food is wonderful, especially their vodka sauce. I have never had a bad experience dining here! Give it a shot you won't be disappointed.

The outside is very deceiving. The inside is warm and welcoming with friendly staff and the food will blow your mind. The Meatballs are among the best I've ever had. And their marinara sauce is to die for. Forget olive garden come to Taste of Italy, you won't regret it

They were super friendly and gave us an excellent wine suggestion for dinner. Once we got sat, our server was great and so was the food! I... More

No matter what you order, it will be delicious. I always come here for the pizza, it is delicious. We always get the roman/sicilian style pizza. You will not be disappointed. It is thick and the perfect-amount-of-crunchy. They put lots of toppings on the veggie pizza, the pepperoni is my favorite. If your in the area shopping, call ahead and... More

Whether it is pizza or a meal, everything is excellent! This is like a New York area Italian restaurant.

I should have walked out when I saw the clientele present on a Saturday night. Men in shorts in February. Women with sweat pants and guys in baseball hats. The whole place was filled with bums that had not shaved or combed their hair. Alas I was starving and had read decent reviews about the place. I was on time... More
