My husband and I stopped here for dinner last night (6/27) and really enjoyed our meal and the exceptional service. Our waitress Eloisa was amazing! We were very impressed by her attentiveness, knowledge of the menu and help with making our decision on what to order (with so many great options, we were torn). She is a gem. I have... More

You would never know this place existed from the parking lot. You have to walk through the Hampton Inn's lobby, which is beautiful, by the way. The outdoor eatery is a replica of an Italian garden - fountain and all. It's peaceful and elegant. The waiters are professional and friendly. The food was exceptional. Upon seating, bread and olive oil... More

We planned a family dinner for about 40 people, arrangement were done by phone since we live about 800 miles away. We were certainly happy when we saw the wonderful buffet of fresh salads, meats, fish, pastas and vegetables. Platters were refilled as needed and we were not rushed through the meal. Beverage service was attentive, and dessert was a... More

When I saw that this restaurant was in a Hampton Inn, I had immediately lowered my expectations. Contrary to this was all of the positive TA reviews and the #2 ranking in the area. When I checked into the Hampton, I immediately saw why it might be rated so high - the place *looked* gorgeous, upscale. After checking in and... More

Had a family reunion and 39 of us stayed at the Hampton Inn. That evening we all ate at Calandra's and it was fantastic. We all ate at different times a few parties of 8 and 10 and they made sure everything was perfect. The Manager was great and the piano bar after was a great way to end the... More

What a lovely dining experience again we have been here many times. The food is fresh and has a definite home made feel like you are sitting at your Grandmothers kitchen table. Who could ask for more? The wait staff was exceptional and we can say enough about the gentlemen who makes the pizza for the children. A must do... More

Went on a Saturday night. Had a reservation for 4 for 7:30pm. Had to wait 30 minutes which wasn't terrible but a little annoying as a few groups of 2 were seated. My friend knew the owner since he had been to the restaurant many times and the owner gave us each a glass of wine to make up for... More

One of the better Italian restaurants in the area-its competes with its Sister restaurant down the road. This one is more elegant (piano player in lobby bar, etc). Have had dinner here many times and have also celebrated w/a party of 25 a few yrs ago. Have never been disapointed in anything here. Food is well done, ample, and delicious.... More
