Located in a strip mall, we never expected this gem of a restaurant. The decor was great witha wonderful atmosphere. The place was packed. We had great service and a delicious meal. We were in town for a race and declined the dessert menu but the nice waiter brought us out a special treat complimentary anyhow. Overall, a great experience.

Great service and overall good food. My husband had the Spaghetti Alla Amatriciana, which was excellent and plentiful. My mother had tortellini with peas and ham, which was also quite good but the portion was much smaller. I had the veal, which was plentiful but the sauce was just so-so. We'll definitely go back, but next time I'll order one... More

Great service and a cordial and funny guy who really goes out of the way to make your experience here delightful. As usual, fresh and outstanding quality for... More

After seeing other reviews, we decided to stop for a good meal before visiting the vineyards. It was a great idea - wonderful meal. The staff were friendly, kind, and knowledgable. The dishes were unique. Went for a late lunch and had no problem getting seated and served quickly.

Inside the decor is quaint, very charming and warm. Our server was truly great, greeted us, got us a table (in this... More

Make reservations if possible and get ready to eat the best Italian food outside of Italy itself! On the outside, Gourmet Italia looks like a "hole in the wall", yet once you enter, you actually feel as if you are in Italy! The atmosphere provides every wonderful Italian sensation, from the cozy, candle lit tables, to the smell of fresh... More

We live one hundred miles away. Whenever we are anywhere near we make certain we dine on some of the best Italian food we have ever eaten. Alex, the owner, creates a friendly family atmosphere and the food is straight from "the old country".

Went there looking for a venue for a wedding rehearsal dinner. Did not call ahead but when we showed up we were met at the door by Angelo, the owner. He was warm and welcoming and spent a good deal of time offering us food options. We had a great dinner. The gourmet italian salad was the best salad my... More
