Absolutely fantastic food! We didn't have a reservation (highly recommend getting one to reduce your wait time) but were able to get in since it's not quite tourist season. Wait staff were very prompt and courteous. Food was prepared quickly and was definitely homemade. Highly...recommend the gnocchi with speck and walnuts.More

Decided to try their pizza as reviews noted good thin crust. Their only size is 12” and quite a few slices were anywhere from 1.5 to 2” of crust with no toppings! See pic attd from one of the two pizzas. We ordered 2 pizzas...- a Margherita and a Cheese w onions for a total carryout price of $43. Toppings were tasty but beware the amount of cheese on the Margherita was slim. The middle portions of the pizza dough were soggy. Again, rather disappointing for the amt of money spent for very little food. Quite frankly the 12” size with the amt of toppings on it are a “personal size” pizza so dont expect to order one for two average eaters.More

This was recommended by a Hotel Receptionist and was exactly as described. An upmarket bar type setting, fair prices and excellent Calzone Neopolitano Pizza. This Pizza tasted authentic Italian as opposed to American. It was as good as I have tasted in Sorrento and similar....The Waiter was also excellent. A 10/10 experience and in a particularly pleasant area.More

The homemade pasta and bread were delish. The sauces were just so so. I had the gnocchi with creamy red sauce, and my husband had the fettuccine with sausage and white wine. SERVICE: was excellent from Matt F, attentive, quick, always with a smile.

Although a bit loud inside, we enjoyed our time. My husband ordered Minestrone, but we don't know what it was as it wasn't your normal Minestrone. We didn't think that perhaps he was served the wrong soup until we left as we thought that maybe...it was from a different region of Italy. I had the chicken picatta. It was very flavorful, but the chicken was a little over done. We will give them another try.More

My fiancé and I had lunch here. I had the pasta ravioli special. It was chicken and pesto stuffed with a garlic cream sauce with truffle oil. My fiancé had Italian sausage rigatoni with spinach in a cream sauce. Both of our meals were delicious....I would definitely recommend this place. Did I mention, the pasta and bread are fresh made daily? Well, they make it!More

Gets a lot of hype from some locals but the food is just ok. The speciality cocktails are good (especially the smokey bourbon one) but PRICEY. $ 25 for a cocktail is crazy. Not worth the price for what you get here.

On Wednesday, September 29th, my two friends and I had dinner at Made in Italy. Two of us ordered the chicken piccata and one order the gnocchi with ricotta and mozzarella. Both chicken piccata dinners were more than disappointing. Although the spinach and potatoes were...fresh, the chicken was tough and dry and appeared old. It was tough to chew. I tried to get through the meal as did my friend. We wound up cutting up most of the chicken to give to my friend's dog. But, that wasn't the worst of it. My friend, who ordered the gnocchi, which arrived absent the mozzarella, only ate one quarter of that dish but refrained from eating any more. because the sauce, the gnocchi and the ricotta did not taste right. That night she vomited and two days later, her stomach is not back to normal. When all three meals arrived at our table, they were not hot. We should have returned all 3 meals at the onset and we regret that we did not. I did let the waitress know and she had no comment. That night when I checked reviews, I noticed that another customer also got sick on a pasta dish on Sept 19th. Please BEWARE! Perhaps, the Health Dept should take a look at what goes on in the kitchen of this restaurant.More

We went here with friends. We all enjoyed our dinner. I had the lasagna - which was very heavy with cheese. I felt that the decor and tables were lacking. It would have been OK if it was just a pizza place - but I...expected a little more. Service was fine.More

My husband loves their fried chicken cutlet with fresh “salad” on it, (I’m not sure what it was called.) so he wants to come often. I’ve tried their pizza…tasteless, and some other things that didn’t jump out at me. Today, I had the thick fettuccini...with garlic and oil (I requested this; it wasn’t on the menu.). It was okay. Just okay. The bread was really good, but I’ve been here 4 or 5 times now for my husband and I just don’t see the need to go back. Today, it wasn’t busy at all, and the service was pretty bad. We were given menus and left alone for a long time. A waitress came in and out and never even made eye contact with us. My husband called twice to the waitress and there is no way she didn’t hear him, but she ignored us. My husband said if no one acknowledges us the next time the door opens, we’re leaving. Finally, a male waiter came out. (If he told us his name, I have no idea.) He took our orders and gave us our food, but other than that, was very infrequent in checking in with us. Again, I felt the food was mediocre for the price, and the service was not good at all. My husband loved his chicken, but was very upset by the service. I wouldn’t recommend the restaurant and I hope the service got it out of my husband’s system.More

Most businesses are remaining open during the construction on Venice Avenue. During the off season many restaurants close on Monday. As far as I know they should be open. Sorry I was not more helpful.

There are two sides to this wonderful restaurant. One side with the bar is more geared towards adults; the other side could be more family oriented.
