A menu varied enough to please everyone. 3. The usual Italian fare (pizza, pasta, etc.) but also a number of Greek dishes. 4. An interesting combination of Greek influenced... More

Our family can be pick, but when our youngest wanted something that was not on the menu, it was not an issue for them to make their version of a Happy Meal for him. The rest of our families made our traditional Italian meal choices, and nobody was disappointed in what we were served. All of the meals were hot,... More

Maybe it was an off night but we ordered pizza, salad and Chianti. We ordered the Chianti because when we asked what beer they had on tap, we were told they only had Miller Lite. No, thank you! The salad was basic and the Chianti was substandard with very little taste. The worst part was the pizza. The pizza itself... More

We have visited the Mad Italian many times and have never been displeased. We decided to take my mother there for her 92nd birthday. All five of us loved our meals....lasagna, eggplant parm., meatball sub, baked spaghetti.... All plates were empty at the conclusion of the meal. We topped off the meal with a delicious piece of chocolate cake. The... More
