Food was amazing

We had a party of 15 celebrating 2 birthdays. They had our table ready when we got there even though we were waiting for a few people. We didn't seem crowded. Staff was attentive, courteous and patient. Everyone loved their food. The seafood pasta that I had was beyond delicious. The servings were... read more

Recently took a family member to Favazza's after a long absence. We were less than impressed with the flavor of the menu items and overall service despite the fact that we were dining rather early. Ordered the Eggplant Paramagian. The eggplant slices were at least 1/2 to 3/4 inch with a rather tough skin that was a bit unpleasant. Side... More

I try something new every time I go there and I am never disappointed. And, I always make sure I have a bowl of Pasta Fazool.

We discovered Favazza's after never being able to get in Cunetto's. Been going back for 25 years. Finally did get into Cunetto's and they don't hold a candle to Favazza's. their chicken prosciutto is to die for!

A friend and I enjoyed a lovely, delicious meal today - we both chose the special of the day; Tilapia with a lemon butter sauce, including capers and red peppers. It was very tasty as were our desserts, Cannoli and Tiramisu. The Cannoli was ordered by my friend, it was freshly made and looked amazing- I had a very generous... More

Our evening event didn't start until 9pm and we wanted to have dinner but were concerned about service on a holiday night. Favazza's is our go-to restaurant and we were happy to find the service and food quality was at its best. We were in and out in an hour! The patio had a fire burning in the fireplace and... More

We take our grandkids to The Fox Theatre every year, then try to eat on The Hill because they all like pasta or pizza. We were seated in their outdoor, which made me wonder if it was because we had 4 kids. We were by the fireplace and this "tent" like room was heated but it was still chilly. We... More

Dinner for five on Friday night at one of my favorite places was a bit disappointing. Salad was soggy and the Cavatelli with Broccoli flavorless--imagine my surprise! I'm the one who suggested this. Service was semi-surly but then perhaps we kept the table too long, one of our party was late so I forgive that. I could tell by the... More

Had my mother's 90 Birthday dinner here and everything was excellent. From the greeting at the door to the paying of the final bill...everything was perfect. Server, Michelle was perfect. Food for 20 came out hot and in a timely fashion. The remainder of the serving staff was helpful and personable. Handling 20 orders (off of the menu) is not... More

That was our first time at The Hills. Favazza's was a friend suggestion. Restaurant is a big crowded and loud. Service is good and food is very good. It is a little pricey, but the portion are very generous. So, a good deal! 😉 I could not understand why an extra charge for splitting the bills ( we were two... More
