“New Location for Old Favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

Always a family favorite even in old location that was far past its prime. Food was always awesome. New location is more urban decor. Love it. Food is still awesome! Try it!!!!

“Italian?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

If you are expecting real Italian food and not "from around here," do not expect to find it in this restaurant. It's really bad. About on the level as the old Joy Young's Chinese restaurant run by southerners who need to stick to cooking southern food.

“Italian? Really?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

The spaghetti was NOT homemade, the sauce was awful, my martini had ice chips in it, and the recommendation to get the 'ratlin' dressing was soooo wrong-Italian dressing mixed with Ranch-are you kidding me?
The most mediocre restaurant I've ever been to.

“Love Lovoys”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

Lived in Birmingham years ago. Used to love to go to Lovoys. This is a new, updated location. Great food, great service, reasonably priced...they haven't missed a beat. Will definately return.
