"Typical" is a great southern Italian restaurant. All food is cooked to order so there can be a wait and they do not take reservations for a party of less than six.

I took a few friends out to their original spot a few years back and the food was authentic and perfect. The whole experience was great until the waitress misplaced my credit card. The waitress was very apologetic and was looking everywhere. Then from nowhere the owner came to our table, her first words were, "you'll get your card back,... More

We came to this restaurant when we were visiting family about a year ago and then made sure to come back. We frequent many high end Italian restaurants and we feel the food at this restaurant is right on the top of our list. I will say the wait can be a bit long and the size of the restaurant... More

The food was good, but the wait for our food and the waiters were terrible. Although the food is fresh, my daughter and I had to wait 30 minutes for our food and my husband had to wait longer than that. We had a bad experience last time we went, but decided to give it another chance. Never going back!!!!!

We came on a Thursday, and enjoyed the ambience of this being a local place, until a group at a birthday party literally madei it impossible to hear ourselves , or our waiter, speak. I'm all for having fun, but a group of 40 year old women need to understand there are others there who don't want to hear "whoopin... More

This is a small little restaurant, so reservations are really beneficial. Even with a reservation, they would not seat us as we were missing one member of our party. We sat at the bar and had a drink while we waited. The hostess was a little rude in trying to give our table away while we waited for our last... More

The food is always excellent. Nice, quaint place with limited seating. Service is always excellent. And now open for lunch! I highly recommend the Typical Penne, it is divine. Also one of my favorites there is the gnocchi in vodka sauce. Get there early for dinner or there will be a wait.

Typical is a small cozy restaurant. The food is delicious!!! We have gone for several years and never a bad meal. Portions are on the large side so always leftovers for home. Bread is fresh and served with oil and garlic. Personal favorites are the Typical Penne and Magherita pasta dish. For dessert the lazy cannoli is so good!!!

Great retaurant!!! Small but love eating there. The Typical Penne is awesome and I could eat it every meakl of the day if I wasn't worried about staying in shape. If you visit Springfield, you have to visit this retaurant. I am a native of the Field of Spring and I eat here fairly often.
