We had a eggplant grinder,a chicken parm and penne ala vodka,definitely un impressive. Sauce was bland and vodka sauce tasted as if it came from a jar. Un eventful dining experience at best. Too many good Italian restaurants in the area to bother with this one.

Even though living social saved me 20$ I would have rather paid full price somewhere that had taste or some type of flavor in the food. Not even the bread. The server was very good but no one was there and the food took forever to come out. I could have had a better dinner making my own pasta. Great... More

We had a Living Social deal ($20 for $40 worth of food) and decided to try Machiavelli's out. The restaurant is located near a bunch of other restaurants in downtown Southington. The restaurant is very nicely decorated. We glanced in on the bar side of the place and it included an outdoor area. Our waiter came over right away and... More

We had stopped at Machiavelli’s mid-week for dinner. They have in door seating and a bar area which is open to outside seating. When we entered, we were immediately greeted and chose to sit at the bar area, the staff was there almost before we sat down. They had a wonderful special this evening, dinner for 2 including homemade bread... More

Only place in the area that could accommodate our party on short notice, the beginning of dinner. Very slow service we were the only people there. Food was just OK, no atmosphere, drinks were horrible overall not a... More

Went there for my anniversary; waitress was NOT familiar with the menu & when given a bad tasting beer, she refused to replace drink, but simply charged me for another beer. Meal was OK, but there was a fly flying around our table as we ate; not too appetizing!! At the end of the meal I tried to present the... More

The mediocre food is the best this place has to offer...The staff was extremely rude and tried to charge me for 3.50 for water and refused to give me tap water. When I tried to explain to the bartender I was the designated driver and had been buying my friends drinks all night he told me I was wasting his... More
