Had the most wonderful lunch with my sister, who was visiting from Texas, and my daughter. We all got different entrees so we could share of course! The flavors were amazing as always. Our waitress knew the menu and the wine list well. I had the chicken rollotine (rollotini?) and it was delicious! The marsala wine cream sauce wasn't too... More

We visit this restaurant whenever we're in Harrisonburg. The food is reliably good, typical Italian menu, decent wine list. The prices are a little high, but acceptable for the nice atmosphere and generous portions. The desserts are very good -- especially the panna cotta. The service is friendly and attentive.

We had a reservation for Valentine's Day. Showed up a little early and were seated very quickly. We seemed rushed as soon as we were sat. Waitress showed up, no ice water to be found on the table. We ordered two Chiantis, that were nice and a calamari to start. The calamari was hit or miss, but mostly incredibly rubbery.... More

My husband and I ate at L'Italia with couple friends. We had a great time and a solid dinner! The wine list was varied and reasonably priced. We started with the stuffed mushrooms which were delicious. We also had the tomato bisque soup which was not cream based (I was thrilled) and on the spicier side. I absolutely loved it... More

The meal was outstanding. We always stop on our way when we travel South and North on route 81. The only change I would make is to improve the bread. It's ok but not real Italian. Will definitely return.

We had a variety. I had the sausage cannelloni. Was very good and creamy. A tiny bit more spice would have been good. Had the cannoli for dessert. Dreamy.

We were traveling and stopped at this establishment for a break and a bite to eat. Let me start by saying their neon sign was a bit misleading. We were under the impression that this was a pizzeria type place. We were wrong! It is actually a really great Italian restaurant and definitely a lot nicer than what we might... More
