Been customers for years. When I want comfort Italian food (veal parm and mussels marinara), this is where I come! Service is not always the greatest but the food is pretty darn good!

This feels like an old world restaurant with the decorations and ambience. Our waiter was excellent and told us he had been in this field for 38 years!! Our food was delicious and prompt. The wine selection was good as well. A great place to visit with friends. We will be returning often.

The greeters and servers were friendly. We waited too long for our food and the establishment was not crowded. The Chicken Dyamante was spicy and tasty but the food was lukewarm. My wife's Veal Marsala was the worst she had ever eaten. The sauce was a thickened gravy and bland--not typical marsala. The garlic bread was crumbly and too oily.... More

First i was very surprised that it wasn't busier on father's day. The food was good but not great. It much better than "Olive garden" and personally I would rather give my money to a local business. Everything that we had ordered was very good and there was no complaints from any of us. I will say the staff and... More

Let me first say my husband and I have been going to Tagliani for almost 20 years. We used to absolutely loved it. We would go there whenever someone came to visit us and for every and all special occasions. Needless to say, we were truly Tagliani junkies! Keep word here is: WERE. It is safe to say this last...

This place is owned by a man for whom I worked in the 80s. I came here right after it first opened and I loved it. I haven't been back, as it is not anywhere near my home or places that I usually roam. It is still really tasty, and the service was great. There are a lot of ways... More

Our Woodmen of the World lodge celebrated Valentine's Day with a tantalizing dinner at Cucina Tagliani. We made advance reservations, and our table was ready for us when we arrived. Our server was attentive, our food was prepared and served quickly. The atmosphere is very pleasing with an "old world" feel. You will enjoy this restaurant and love the food!

This isn't expensive Fine Italian Cuisine it's Budget Family Friendly food that's a recommended alternative to the Olive Garden Chain. The bread is better than from the Olive Garden and the salad dressings are fresh made and not from a jar. (like the Olive Garden's are) I've been here BUNCHES of times and I usually get the Broiled Salmon in... More

I have been going to this location since 1999 and really enjoy the food and the atmosphere! My favorite meal is the Spinach Manicotti with the Alfredo/Marinara sauce. If you are a garlic lover, the creamy garlic dressing for the salad is awesome, just make sure that your significant other has the same thing as it is very strong. The... More
