I hear the 80's are hip again so stop into Italia gardens to relish in the decor and food. Seriously this place needs a fresh look and fresh menu. Food was ok but nothing to come back for, decor was laughable. This format may have worked 20 years ago but this place is likely bleeding cash daily.

Great place to eat. Family style garden salad with wonderful nippy Italian dressing. Fresh warm bread. You can have as much of these as you want with an entree. The baked spaghetti is a huge portion smothered in cheese and a lovely sweet Italian tomato sauce. The Service could not be better. Our server was Nephew of the owner. He... More

They have a sweet sauce, so if you don't like your pasta sauce sweet, ask for the marinara instead. They've got great pizza's as well as pasta, (Chicken Tetrazzini is one of my favorites) and the pasta dishes on average are incredibly generous portions. The only downfall about that is they do have a splitting charge (4 dollars I believe)... More

Chad was our server and quite possibly the worst we've ever had. We've been here several times over the past 10 years and have never been treated like this. We were told we'd be charged $4 to have our 3 year old eat off our plates instead of ordering her an entree (we weren't trying to be cheap - she... More

We stopped in for dinner on a Thursday night. Italia Gardens is one of our favorite restaurants, we both love their homemade ravioli. Last night we tried different dishes; she spaghetti with meatballs and I had a pizza. The spaghetti was good but it doesn't compare to the ravioli. While the pizza was good, I was disappointed because the pizza... More

This is our second trip. The food is decent, but not raving, as others had said. On this visit , our party had lasagna, chicken parmagiano, ribs and salmon. Everyone enjoyed the very casual family atmosphere. The wine selection was limited (no pilot noir, merlot instead). The service was very good and friendly... but the food was ho hum. Nothing...
