My wife and I ate here while staying in the area. The food was excellent. They also had the best wine. I would definitely recommend

I ate there tonight with 3 other people and I have to say, we were all disappointed. Granted, it was kind of early (5:45ish?) and it was not very busy so I was expecting to really have my socks knocked off. They were not. I'm not convinced the pastas were not out of a box but they were cooked properly.... More

I have eaten here several times with my family. We all loved it, including the kids. The atmosphere was great, did not feel like we were rushed to get in and out. Love the owner!

Here's the good: the waitperson was friendly if not overly familiar with the food. The entre prices are reasonable. The bread was tasty. Here's the rest: the portions are pretty small. The chicken Marsala was not bad but came with ham (?) and no side. The sausage dish was very small for a main meal. We ordered a $30 bottle... More

We visited Elvira ' s for the first time. The restaurant is located in a convenient location and is looks very nice inside. The menu was extensive and the prices seemed reasonable. The place was busy which proved that it was popular. The only issue was the slow service. They had on waitress and what seemed to be the owner... More

Great Food. Service was ok. The waitress was on break so the owner had to take orders. He did not do a very good job at it. However, the food was great!

I'm no chef or anything but I do know rice should be cooked thoroughly. Our waitress was new, she didn't know the menu and was very forgetful. The pasta was proper. The sauce tasty kind of sweet for me. I prefer a rich tomato sauce. My chicken stuffed with ham and spinach was good. I just wish I had know... More

My wife and I love locally owned, off-the-beaten-path restaurants so I really had high hopes for this place given the rave reviews posted here but was sorely disappointed. The marinara sauce is not good. There is no eggplant dish on the menu, and the chicken parmigiana was the most tasteless piece of chicken I think a restaurant has ever served... More

Without a doubt, this was the worst Italian restaurant I have ever been in. Owner let the wine/beer license lapse so no wine was available. Red sauce tasted like something out of a can with sugar added. Meat balls were more like round burgers. Chicken saltmbocca was not sauteed, it was boiled.

Small family owned Italian restaurant. Loved the ravioli and the bread is outstanding. Friendly owners and the food is prepared fresh.
