Five Points Italian Hernando's Hideaway

Tasty lasagna, meatballs, and sandwiches--all freshly prepared and delicious. Go for lunch! Only wine but some chianti out of a box is o.k. for a noon getaway meal

this has been our family's favorite Italian restaurant since I was a kid, the pizza is awesome but so is the lasagna. The lunch specials a great and so are the salads. the wait staff is always friendly and the central location is very cozy.

This locally owned business has had the same owner, Rita, since they opened their doors! I have been coming here for over 40 years and keep coming back! The food is always excellent as is the service. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. Get here early or late for lunch as it tends to get busy.

Great little hole in the wall in the center of town, been here forever! Small, quaint, friendly personnel. Would recommend this to anyone who likes great Italian food! Every thing on the menu is fantastic, we travel from the Far East side to frequent this wonderful restaurant. No more chain restaurants for us!

This is probably the best Italian restaurant on the West side. Nothing is particularly fancy or mind-blowing (and they serve red wine chilled--really??!!), but it's very good, basic, traditional Italian fare. I especially like the fried calamari.

Had lunch at the Italian Kitchen today. The food is great, we all ordered of the luncheon menu. The portions were very large for being a lunch portion. I had the Chicken Parmesan, my husband had the spaghetti with shrimp, our friend had the baked rigatoni. We each had a salad & a very generous bread basket, with 6 slices... More

We came for dinner on a Saturday on a recommendation from a friend. At 9 pm, there were still plenty of people there, suggesting to me something reputable. We sat ourselves and were treated kindly. I ordered the chicken Jerusalem and my wife the Italian dinner. Hers was a huge portioned meal. Mine was big, too, considering that I got... More

The guy at the car rental place in the airport recommended the Italian Kitchen. It's a quaint restaurant - an old converted house. We sat at a lovely table near the front of the house. Our server was terrific. She walked us through the menu and helped us order. I had the half order of lasagna and a small bowl... More

I have eaten at this restaurant as a child, during my courting days, professional days, and now. The food has never changed, always delicious. I love the spaghetti with peperoni with an antipasto salad. The ambience is such that you do feel that you are in Italy. The only difference is that I like their food better. There is no... More
