We don't eat at Come Back Inn often because they are a long way from our house. When we do eat there it's usually very good. My son got the Bolognese Pasta and it was top notch. My wife loved her shrimp special. I had a Gyro Salad that was excellent. Four really good dinners came to $52 before the... More

I have a friend who lives in the neighborhood and we stopped in for a bite as thunderstorms were pelting the city on a weeknight. Only a couple tables occupied but prompt and cheerful greeting. I had kind of expected heavier traditional Italian fare from looking at the menu on line, and would certainly return to order a pizza or... More

My wife and I dined here with two friends. We had tried to get into an establishment down the street that had a long wait, so we wandered in. We were glad we did. The food was pretty good. We were surprised (based on the name, look, and signage) that the place specialized in Italian food (but they have other... More

This place serves the best Italian comfort food ever. I could close my eyes and think I was eating my Grandmother's special garlic spiked Alfredo sauce. I feel like I am at home (or in Heaven) when I eat here. I would give this 10 stars if I could!

This is a great place for a very casual italian meal at a great price. You get a hometown feeling from the staff. The menu is somewhat limited which is a good sign. They make the standard favorites and everything at our table was excellent - pizza, ravioli, tortellini, fetucinni, sauces were outstanding and good selection of beer and wine.... More

I was here with a large family group that included several infants. The restaurant is fairly small and it was crowded on a Friday night. They were very accommodating in getting us seated. I did not want pasta and got the Sirloin Bake. I would advise staying with the Italian dishes for which they are known. My steak was served... More

The Come Back Inn seems as if it has been here forever. Yes, it is a whole in the wall and can become very loud inside. However, something about the place is comforting, and I cannot put my finger on it. The roast beef used to be the best, as did the pasta dishes. Now, they seem average in a... More

The Come Back Inn is tucked away in a mostly residential area of Louisville. From the outside, it doesn't appear to be much, and really the inside isn't much better. It is the definition of "hole in the wall." It's rather small on the inside with a handful of booths and some tables and chairs. There's a bar, but we... More

I might try this place again. After going several times over the years the quality and service dipped and dipped to a point that I refused to ever go back. We ordered the House Speciality - Italian Roast Beef sandwich - and when it came to the table the meat still cold, icey cold. Showed the waitress, and she was... More

My husband and I plus a group of friends ate here last week. It was busy but the seating God's smiled on us and we snagged a table for 8 no waiting. The place is small and I could tell a local favorite. We ordered drinks and appetizers. the appetizers were very good. The entree's not so much. The special... More
