Patronized Recanati's several years ago and the food was extremely disappointing. Ordered linguini with white, clam sauce and the 'clams' were extraordinarily chewy and dry, i.e. very, very old!! My tablemates meal wasn't any better.....tasteless 'meatsauce' glopped over soggy pasta ! Hope their new location aids in the preparation of basic Italian cuisine.

When we can get a night out away from the kids we always go to Recanati's. The Silvia rolls are yummy. Baked ziti, soups, salads I have never had a bad meal here. The service is usually great but one time we did have a clueless teenager for our waitress. Prices are very competitive and portion sizes are nice. Dean... More

I took my daughter to dinner last night. We both had the Chicken Parmigiana with spaghetti. She had the spivi for an appetizer, I chose the baby clams in white sauce. I wasn't crazy about the chicken, unlike my daughter, who in fact finished mine. She in turn wasn't thrilled with the spaghetti. The only difference in our meals was... More

Italians own and operate this restaurant, and you can tell. The food doesn't taste pre-packaged, and it's not thie wierd Americanized "Italian" food like Olive Garden. It tastes real. Their special family stuffed bread recipe is very delicious. The atmosphere is quaint.

A very family-friendly, cozy and comfortable restaurant. The menu is very extensive with lots of great choices, including several veal dishes that are to die for. And the mussels are without compare. My family eats there about once a week, and it is a wonderful eating experience. Highly recommend.

I am a frequent customer to this establishment and would definitely recommend it to others. There was one time I visited where the service was questionable but it was that particular server. I ate there recently and was informed by the owner that she was no longer there. I would be willing to guess it was the same server from... More

After reading the other reviews of Recanati's on this site, I'm not convinced these people have ever eaten at this restaurant. Nobody greeted us at the door, especially not the owner. We walked in an HOUR before they closed, only to have the waitress sigh and check her watch. She walked over to our table and slapped the menus down,... More

Little restaurant on Avalon Blvd, North of I-10. You will miss it if you are not specifically looking for it as it just looks like a non-descript house looking building just north of a larger restaurant named Nichols. The food here is wonderful and the portions are large. The place is family run and there are only a few people... More
