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!

For some reason, I am reluctant to trust restaurants that are in strip malls. I feel that they exist to serve shoppers. So when we arrived at Arnandos to meet my sister-in-law and her husband, who made the reservation, I wasn't expecting much. Appetizers aren't a real barometer of a good restaurant because you are hungry when they arrive and... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants. It is a family run business with very attentive staff! The food here is always good. We love their bruschetta and their salads. My husband enjoys their specials- they always have a good salmon or seafood special. I love their eggplant or their stuffed shells. My kids love their chicken Parmesan! Don't forget... More
