“Don't let the fact that this restaurant is in a Holiday Inn fool you...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

.Don't let the fact that it is in a hotel scare you away. We were welcomed at the door and seated by Jack the owner, but in our opinion the best was yet to come. The food was delicious, and we are Italian so I think we know real fresh Italian food that is properly prepared. Not too many restaurants in this area know how to cook real Italian food, they also served generous portions, and the service was excellent. The over-sized garlic knots are the best around. Jean has linguine and clam sauce, and I had chicken marsala with mushrooms. Both were excellent. In our opinion, don't pass-up this restaurant, It's great food at reasonable prices.

“Still dreaming of Fiorellos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

I visited family in the area and they were excited to take me to a venue they have found and love. I travel a good deal and live in a town where Italian food is king. Many people avoid restaurants that are attached to lodging I have found that it is a wise choice - if the owners are savvy they will do everything they can to get the hotel guest to come back; atmosphere, good service, affordably priced and good food - Fiorellos fits the bill!

The owner Giacomo comes out to meet his guests I was impressed that he remebered my family's first and surname! He was a pleasure to speak with. I wasinterested in his restaurant experience and he was happy to tell me but knew when to move on so as not to interfere with our dining experience.

My eggplant was the best I ever had and I am an eggplant officianado! The sauce should be jarred for retail sale it was that good! Thanks Jack for a nice evening!

“Family Get Together”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

I found Fiorello by googling restaurants on J Clyde. My mom wanted to meet us for dinner and we live in VAB . Needed somewhere she could easily find and for us right off the interstate. Read great reviews. Our server was very friendly, personable, and prompt. Unfortunately forgot her name. Brushetta is some of the best I have ever had! I tried the ravioli special and sauce was so good. Mom had the pasta with vodka sauce and bf had the veal marsala. Told him to try out the marsala because other reviews said the sauce was excellent. He agreed!! I was able to convince my young niece try out the baked ziti. She really enjoyed it! And the endless bread. Overall a great dining experience, easy to find, and very friendly. Thank you!

“Superb hosting of wedding dinner on short notice during holidays”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Due to some unforeseen circumstances, my daughter was married on short notice (no, it's not what you are thinking). I called Jack about having the celebratory dinner at Fiorello with a custom cake. He came through in superb manner. Everyone had a wonderful time and the bride and groom have some nice memories to remember their special day. Ricardo's food preparation was delectable as always. No wonder this is our favorite place to eat.
