Hi, I grew up on Long Island and I know real Italian food. This is good food for a chain and recipe food. I love the salad. I eat at this location when I visit from Pigeon Forge, TN. The service is always good, friendly atmosphere, if you want high service and sophistication, wrong place. This is fun with good... More

The food and decor seem stuck in the 1960s. Not that this is bad for the food, but it may be heavy to some. The portions are a bit too much, so take home may be in order. If you liked the typical old school Italian restaurant of yesteryear, then Provinos will please you. If you looking for lighter, nouveau... More

I attended a group dinner at Provino's for 44 ladies. For a group that size, the wait staff did a really good job keeping drinks filled, rolls and salad on the table. Our meals were prepared and served hot. I'm in the minority but am not a fan of the salad.....which is huge pieces of iceberg lettuce, garbonza beans and... More

Any time I eat at a chain restaurant, I am dubious about the food and the service. This Provinos is worth a visit on both counts. Our seating was quick and our server knew his business and his menu. I loved the Chicken Francese. It was a nice portion and tasted very fresh with the lemon butter sauce. My son-in-law... More

My husband and I ate here while on a pleasure trip to the Atlanta area. The salad is wonderful; loved the beets in it. My husband said his chicken marsala was one of the best he'd ever eaten. I had the vegetarian eggplant lasagna. Yummy! If you're in the area, this is the place to go. Oh, and the atmosphere... More

My wife and I love Provino's. Why? Because we can get some very private seating which makes for a very comfortable and intimate environment. The service is always good and they have a very diverse menu. The food is well prepared and served with a nice presentation.

I remember eating at Provino's over the years and remembered reasonably good quality meals... However... The bread was fresh and hot, the house salad was good, the iced tea was good... The Veal Parmigiana was horrible. The cheese topping was "chewy". The breading was dry and the meat was tough. Overall, it was like eating tomato flavored shoe leather! Very... More

Settle in this cozy restaurant and enjoy the Great Garlic Rolls served when you arrive. Fresh salad with beets, tomatoes, cheese and garbanzo beans is delicious. Menu choices include chicken, veal and vegetarian options. Grab a cannoli to go for dessert! Lots of space for parties and celebrations is available.

Thank Gatorartlady
