Good food

Bought a Groupon for this place. Nice atmosphere. Food was good. The spinach dip and chips was good the BBQ wings were tasty. My wife got a burger, and it was HUGE. Wow had to take it it to go. I got the BBQ chicken calzone it was big as the plate. Over all great experience.

Every time I go for dinner I'm disappointed. Service stinks. The wait for food and drink is way too long. The quality of food can be greatly improved. I could make better myself at home and for a much better price. Way too loud for conversation. The menu is ridiculously long. At lunch though the menu was much smaller and... More

We have been enjoying the food at the Medici House for years even when this was the Tantalas Restaurant. Food was always of high quality and enjoyable. Thursdays is 'Taco Day" and because of this we scheduled our visit while we were in East Aurora tending to some home related business. My wife especially enjoys Medici's Enchiladas. So what happened... More

I love the variety and casual atmosphere. Lots of locals dine here. The food is fabulous, favorite is the Sea Scallops and pasta! The windows all around make it feel so roomy. Delicious!

Don't be deceived by the full tables, we waited what seemed an age for our food and when it arrived it was disappointing. Whilst waiting to use the restrooms I could see into the entrance to the kitchen.......probably lucky I had already eaten. Pretty sure that the container full of water sitting on a shelf outside the restroom with a... More

This place has an extensive menu and the duck was excellent. The seem to be having a bit of an identity crisis as it appeared that the place is actually 2 restaurants.

We ordered a pizza and salad topped with salmon. Both were DELICIOUS! The ingredients were top quality, the seasoning/flavor was well-balanced, and the portions were generous in size. I highly recommend this restaurant, especially for lunch.

Been a number of times, today was the last for sure. On previous visits the food has always been poor. However, the selection of beers is excellent. If you just want a drink then it's great, but if you want to eat then be prepared for REALLY slow service of very mediocre food - not just for the price. How... More

Had a groupon so it wasn't too bad. $13 for a burger and fries is a bit much for my taste. The food was good, confusing on how to get into the right place. The menu was extensive, prices a bit high but maybe not for East Aurora, the decor to me did not define better dining. would try it... More
