Good Food

The food was amazing however a little on the expensive side. If I wanted to pay that much, I would go to NYC. The menu was very limited. Enough to choose from but would rather of had a nice steak, which was not on the menu. I had 3 beers, calamari appetizer, a salad and dessert and my bill came... read more

I really wanted to like this place for a few reasons. The building is interesting from the outside and lovely on the inside. The staff I encountered were very nice. They have a rotating menu which usually means great dishes that have seasonal ingredients. The food was not good. It wasn't horrible, but I'd certainly not consider it good Italian.... More

We had been here 2 previous times. I made a reservation for my husband and I for Saturday night at 7:00. We arrived at 6:55. The place was by no means crowded, with plenty of empty tables. When we entered, and approached the desk, we were asked, "2?" I said we had a reservation for 7:00 and gave our name.... More

To management: We had a spectacular dinner now thar we were aware that the 4 star Chef Miguel is there now and the food is still perfect. We will visit more often with our family and friends to taste the authentic Italian cuisine that is hard to find anywhere else. Sincerely the Lubelo Family.

Mistake number 1, it was Valentines Day. We stayed, we tried, never again. We arrived at 8:15 and were seated promptly in the banquet room; there were no servers. It was obvious this restaurant overbooked. Waited until 8:45 without a drink order being placed. We complained and were moved to a table in the actual restaurant. Waited another 30 minutes;... More

Last night we had dinner at Al Di La - my choice as my fiance wanted to eat elsewhere. Big mistake!!!! Not because the food wasn't good it was when we finally got it. We arrived for our 7:30 reservation and were greeted by a nice gentleman who showed us to our table (and it was the table we had... More

My family had my mothers 60th birthday party here when they made the new party room and loved every minute. All of the food they served family style was incredible and they gave you plenty. I haven't been here since the restaurant renovated over 5 years ago. I recently went to Al Di La to celebrate a birthday with a... More

We went there for an event and the menu was set so I can't really comment on their regular menu but the set menu was average and not really Italian. Nothing bad nothing good either. There was some variety and As we were several people we tried most things but nothing tasted particularly good ! Service was something between average... More

I came here with a few friends and my boyfriend one night. I got the orchetti with broccoli rabe and sausage. HOLY OIL BATMAN. The thing was SWIMMING in oil. So much that it made me nauseas. For the price, it should be higher quality.

I decided to eat out this year so I chose a place I have eaten in the past and had great food and great service. They are a really great Italian Bistro that I enjoy. They had a Thanksgiving Special with a set menu of a Turkey Dinner or a Roast Pork Dinner. You could also order off the menu.... More
