Our dinners were fabulous and the service was as well. We had a problem with the entertainment. We specifically wanted to bring our mother to enjoy the 7pm entertainment. By 7:30 a woman finally showed up. Very unprofessional and brought her family with her. She must be related to the owner because he was not doing his job. Instead of... More

This restaurant deserves a "good rating" between average & very good. My friend & I visited on a Saturday night with a Groupon. Service was initially off, no water at the table and we need to flag our server down. It gave me the impression they were short staffed or supremely busy due to the Groupon. The dining area was...

Greatly enjoyed my first visit to Ti Amo, The Penne Arrabbiata was superb, the pasta done perfectly. Others at the table greatly enjoyed their meals. The service was pleasant and unhurried. The restaurant and lounge are warm and inviting,

I did like the food here and the wine pour was decent. My complaint is...the noisy bar that penetrates into the restaurant.

2 stars overall because of poor service, overpriced entrees, and food lacks flavor. My entree Pollo alla Francese was really a 3.5 but after I factor in the experience and the overall taste, this place is a 2 star. 2 stars goes to my entree and the live singer =). My entree was great but the soup was tasteless and... More

We received a server that apparently was still training, so the service suffered. The food itself was nothing special. The worst part about this Italian restaurant was that it played American pop radio. If you are going there for a nice dinner, do you really want to hear Ludicrous? The atmosphere was ruined by that. Overall, nothing special.

We frequent this restaurant because of Chef Gar. The food is delicious and very fresh and well prepared. We love the fish and veal. Drinks are well made and generous. The inside of the restaurant could use some updating but overall very comfortable . Service is good and attentive. Priced competitively and offers good value.

Thank Bonnster
