Terrible calamari, hard like rubber, you have to pay for extra bread. never again. I tried them twice to give them a fair chance. Both time were terrible.

From the moment you walk in the door, the ambience envelopes you and the staff are incredible, great service without being in your face. As a vegetarian, Wisconsin is always challenging for me, but this restaurant was an exception - the food was amazing and the staff couldn't do enough for me to ensure I was taken care of. Well...

My family and I always go to Cafe Calamari when we need that special place to celebrate. Last time this summer, it was our 30th wedding anniversary. Saturday night, it was my husband's retirement after 30 years of federal service AND our son's pending graduation from college. Cafe Calamari does not disappoint-it is lovely to look at (romantic, pretty, roomy,... More

Checking "yes" regarding one of the best meals I've ever had needs clarifying to that of one of the "better" meals. The wife and I have been here quite a few times and have never been disappointed. The meals are always top notch, not to mention reasonably priced. This is one of our favorite places to go in the area.

If you like great food with a great atmosphere and view make a reservation at Cafe Calamari. I say make a reservation because the place is always busy. Any day of the week and that says a lot. The menu is extensive with a lot of wonderful choices in all categories. The service is always attentive and you are actually... More

While staying at the Abbey for a 2 day get away, Cafe Calamari was suggested to us by one of the shop owners in Lake Geneva. We were seated at a wonderful table in the corner which made it romantic. The kitschy decor made the restaurant warm and inviting. We had a reservation but it was probably not necessary since... More

Visited this restaurant with a group of 10 people and we really enjoyed our evening. The appies were really yummie! Fantastic selection of pastas and fish and steaks. All of our group very much enjoyed their meals. I will definitely recommend this restaurant if you are the area. Our waiter was very nice and very professional!

If you are looking for consistency in food favors, preparation and service, THIS IS THE PLACE! Have visited several times over the summer and have never been disappointed with any aspect of this restaurant. Gets a little crowded in season, but was there on a Tuesday night in October and the place was busy. That in itself says a great... More
