Good Italian Food!

I have not been to Armando's in quite some time, and most recently held a sports banquet there. I am so happy to have been reintroduced! The party was a success, from the cozy room we were given, the attentive service and the delicious food. I worked with May from start to finish and she was most... read more

In December of 2014 I had attended a work holiday party and they seated all in a square with the exception of three people which they seated in the corner of the room away from the group. We took it upon ourselves to open the square to make room for the entire group. Staff stood around string at us. Also,... More

Family went for Christmas Eve dinner I won't bother with mentioning all that went wrong with this 2+ hour ordeal to be served barely warm food. 2 HOURS FOR PASTA,,, and the most clueless wait staff & hostile management. Good management doesn't throw the kitchen under the bus. Good management takes care of their guests. Armandos will never see us... More

My son worked as a bus boy at Armando's for a short period of time. He worked hard but because he was the "newbie", the waitresses did not share their tips. It's bullying at its best! When he did get paid, we had to worry about the check bouncing. There was no point in him trying to stick it out.... More

Veal parm. No flavor. Sauce tasted like jar. Chicken cacciatore bland at best. Service was odd. Took drink and appetizer orders together. When asking what beer was on tap the answer was an ale, Pilsner light and dark. What bartender doesn't know brands

Upon being seated, our waitress told us that the food isn't very good. She was 100% correct! I wasn't surprised since most of the people that work there are too busy playing Bocce out back instead being inside cooking and overseeing everything. I will never return.

Every person has an idea of good food, this is not mine. Ordinary flavors, bulk, commercial ingredients. Service was generally lack-luster. We went on a weeknight. Fried calamari was not crisp. Red sauce was not pleasant - too acid, bland flavor. Pasta was mush/overcooked. Baked dishes were overly cheesed, underwhelming ingredients. Salads, soups, desserts commercial prep. Wine list fair and... More

Four of us dined for dinner - 2 lasagnas, an eggplant parmigiana and an eggplant rollatini. All four dishes came out in a hot ceramic dish loaded with gooey cheese, so much cheese that the cheese obliterated the flavor of the rest of the ingredients. The marinara sauce tasted canned, maybe that is why. I asked for an order of... More

The service here is excellent. The minute you walk in, you are warmly greeted. We were seated quickly on a Friday evening despite the restaurant being very busy. Our food (chicken parm, lasagna) arrived quickly and was very good. All of the servers were extremely friendly, polite and attentive. Impressive!
