Service was bad, food was worse, don't bother, really. We were with a group of 10 and there were stacks of uncleared plates, never got refills on our drinks. They added 20% (which is fine) because of the size of our group, but our service was very sub par. The food was terrible, I had the gnocci and it was... More

So this is a simple fill the belly decent easy ohio spot. Better than national chains by far. Just simple easy. Good prices with fast sincere nice service. It is not roman-esque....but it is old school midwest simple Italian. Save room for bakery goods across the street at Corbos(eatting one of their cookies I brought home on plane as I... More

This is one of the better places to get Italian food in the Cleveland area. I would also recommend Carrie Cerino's, which is my favorite Italian restaurant in the area. However, I enjoyed my visit to Tattoria. The wait staff was very nice and upbeat. Our food was very good. I recommend getting the mozzarella sticks; these were almost better... More

My husband ate there many years ago with some friends. So, after a trip to the museum, we went for a late lunch. I wasn't very busy for a Sunday afternoon. We were greeted and sat right away. Fresh bread was brought to our table. I ordered linguine with white clam sauce, they also offered red clam sauce, my husband... More

October 10, 2014 - Before going to Severance Hall for a concert, our group of four walked from the Glidden House Inn to Cleveland's Little Italy; a 15 minute walk. There are many find Italian restaurants, pastry houses and drinking establishments at Little Italy. My wife and I had visited Little Italy a couple of years ago. Tonight, we chose... More

Went there for a family dinner and was disappointed in our meal. The pizza was extremely oily and not a margarita pizza! It came with giant pieces of tomatoes with a glob of dripping cheese. The crust was very thick. The Linguine with mussels came as spaghetti. The mussels were average with not a lot of flavor. The kids pasta... More

My son's wedding rehearsal dinner was held in this restaurant and we had a large party of 32 guests. The solarium was the perfect size and the atmosphere was cozy. We had a wonderful wait staff that served our guests perfectly. They allowed us as much social time as needed and brought our food in an orderly and efficient manner.... More

We have always had delightful meals here, until this time. The clams were plump and juicy, but the broth was awful. It tasted like they had taken the wine, the butter and raw garlic and just poured them separately over the clams, rather than sauteing them in it. We both had the chicken picata. The chicken was unevenly flattened with... More

Originally we had made plans to eat at Mama's Santas but when we got there it was closed. We signed up on the waiting list for a fancy restaurant next door but the waiting time it was at least an hour. We kept our options open and look around for plan C. That's how we ended up here. They had... More
