5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014 NEW

As an appetizer, the minestrone soup was perfect. Not a very big portion, and the soup was filling. For the main course, I had a sausage and pepperoni pizza. The pizza was baked on the fireside, the dough was perfectly cooked and the topping was the same. All in all: 5/5 for perfect soup and pizza.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. Family owned authentic Italian food. I have never had a bad experience here. The building looks like an old pizza hut and many people have told me that they drive right by this place - and never consider going in. Don't let the looks deceive - you will experience fine dining at this... More

This is a very nice Italian restaurant, very obviously family-run (but obvious in a good way!). The food was all served quickly, refills were prompt, and everything was delicious! Definitely save room for dessert!

We went recently on a Friday night. The service was fantastic - that staff was very attention and paid attenion to every detail. Our group had the flounder, spicy shrimp&mussels dish and stuffed chicken pasta. Everyone cleaned their plate. A small dinner salad was served with each meal. Beers were ice cold and the wine paired well with the food.

My husband and I have been enjoying Espositos for 20 years. The food is consistently delicious, pasta and sauces are homemade and fabulous, fish is always tasty and well prepared and the tiramisu is out of this world yummy. The menu has all the Italian standards but also a varying selection of specials. Maria and her staff are welcoming, helpful... More

We were out with friends who had been to Espositos before. The place is nondescript and we passed the turnoff the first time around. However once inside we experienced great service, and wonderful Italian food selections . Wine selection was quite ample and reasonable in price. Sitting behind me was a restaurant regular patron who overheard our conversation with our... More

An amazing little Italian restaurant with excellent service and delicious food. No kids menu but our server offered to give our kids half portions and charged us the same way. In all ways this was a great family outing with very good food!

I have been here dozens of times and always enjoy it. The people who run it treat you like family. The prices are quite reasonable.

I have eaten here several times with each time being just as good as the first. Their chicken marsala is an excellent dish that I really like. The calamari is also great! Gina, the waitress I had the day I went there to eat speaks Italian and is very attentive to her customers! The limoncello ice creme I had afterwards... More
