"sorry"

Visited this restaurant with family of 4 adults last night. Meals tasted fine but 2hrs after I got home I was doubled over with stomach cramps and sick. Obviously from what I ate. Called manager today and he said "sorry". Really? Thanks....will not be going back.

The salad was "lettuce alone", only a small tomato and nothing else; scampi with hardly any garlic on a bunch of pasta; service was poor! Jimmy J was good. the veal was good. Week before had better service!

What LaStanza has most going for it is that it's a large, comfortable restaurant, right on Dearborn Street. Even at the height of season, with reservations you can usually seat a group. Be aware they do add a tip to your bill in this case. (And they should be aware that, at least in the case of my group, they... More

La Stanza is a good Italian restaurant in Englewood that we visit when in the area for dinner. They offer a large variety on the menu and it is all good. Favorites of my family are the veal parm and puttanesca. It is affordable and you get large portions so you have more than enough food for another lunch or... More

Visited on a Friday night for early bird. Had the lasagna, which was just average. Waiter was a rookie and made a lot of mistakes - no one to coach him. When we left the restaurant was very crowded.

WeNt last night with a large group of people, 27 or so. Under the circumstances serviCe was a little slow but adequate for a large gathering. Chicken F Rancese was excellent, nice touch of lemon taste, mixed veggies, salad and a couple loaves of bread. Great restaurant.

Pasta was over cooked and the appetizers were okay but not memorable. Best dish was the calamari appetizer. I would not return as it is overpriced for what it delivers.

I always try to visit this restaurant whenever visiting my Mom in Englewood, Florida. Have never had a bad meal here and the Italian food is especially good. The serving staff and bartenders are very pleasant and helpful in assisting you in selecting a dinner choice. On my most current visit here I had their cheese ravioli in marinara sauce... More
