I had Caprese as a starter, lovely, and grilled salmon, delicious. Attentive service and decent choice of drinks.

I've eaten here several times. The food is above average for the area. The menu is a little pricey, which is why I can't become a regular. Not many people show up for lunch. Formerly, the place, under the same owner had a name like "Spaghetti Factory" or some such. Regardless, the food is tasty.

I came here a few weeks ago and the food was really good. I had a seafood pasta and it was really yummy, salad was good and they let us bring our own wine for a corkage. Had I reviewed it back then, it would have been 4 stars. That said, I went there again this past week and had... More

I've been going here for over 10 years, back when it was the Pasta Factory too, and the food and service has always been outstanding! They used to have this amazing fresh baked bread with this awesome crushed garlic dipping sauce, and now they have this amazing fresh baked bread with this amazing chimichurri type sauce, I could drink that...

Parking is a bit difficult, food is tasty, but nothing outstanding. Customer service is unpredictable. Casual dining for mid-range prices, and an adequate place to take young children.

Great Italian restaurant not far from the water, consistent food that's very tasteful, friendly and attentive service, comfortable atmosphere, and a cute date night place.

First, this place changed its name to Macchi's Bistro more than a year before the date of this review. I've been to Italy many times; the food here doesn't measure up. That's offset at least partially by the clean surroundings, subdued décor, and excellent service. So, service gets a 5/5; food gets a 3/5.

The aroma from the sidewalk pulled us in! Don't you just love restaurants that provide you with freshly baked still warm bread and seasoned olive oil for dipping. Very nice restaurant catering to families. Service was quick and efficient. Menu varied with reasonable prices. I had pasta and my guest had pizza. Both agreed it was an excellent dinner. Would...

The restaurant actually just changed name as Macchi's Bistro. But this is all what change as I can see. I orderred the cheese and onion Tapas, but that was just a greacy snack. For main course, I got the salmon with linguine. Salmon was ok, topped with tomatoes, but linguine does not taste anything. The are over cooked in non... More
