Great dining experience

We had a wonderful meal here. There were three of us dining for dinner and we had a reservation. For dining on a Thursday night it was needed because the place was pretty full. We sat down immediatly and they brought great bread and olive oil with a load of parmesan cheese. I added the crushed red... read more

Conveniently located in the Westin hotel. Food is ok, but no match to the restaurants in the vicinity. Staff is unfriendly and service really poor.

The food is OK but for the price it is ala carte We had lunch another time it was better. The service was not very good our waitress may have too many tables we did feel somewhat passed by

While seated at the bar on a Saturday night, we witnessed an ugly argument between a large male African American server and a larger white female bartender. It wasn't pretty, so we quickly paid and left. The female bartender was testy and short with us as well. We went up to our room and thus saved money by visiting with... More

Friends took us out in the Wheeling area and we went here for dinner. The atmosphere is really nice and though the place was full, we felt very comfortable and uninterrupted. I had the spinach gnocchi, which tasted great. My wife had one of the stakes. Also very good choice. We had a really good time

Busy place on a Saturday night. We didn't have time to stay but ordered a carry out from the hostess. Great flavors quality food. Didn't get a chance to try the Sunday brunch, maybe next visit.

I had a meal the night I checked in after a transatlantic flight, so a fairly brief visit. I had the Parmesan burger and sat at the bar, which was fine.Cocktails were excellent, just what I needed to ensure a good night's sleep.

I ate several times at Saranello's during a series of business trips during the last two months. Food was fabulous--you must try the stuffed mushroom caps, but everything I tried was excellent. I mean, even the bread was delicious. Highly recommended.

Another in the Lettuce Entertain You collection, the feel is L. Woods with a little pasta: big, loud, busy. The food is predictably competent, as is the service. Prices are what we've come to expect from the upper-middle-range LEY members: Figure $100/two plus tip. In fact, everything here is what we've come to expect -- and maybe that's the problem....
