Food was tolerable, not out-standing. If you want to eat out at an Italian other than Olive Garden, you may choose this. You won't get unlimited salad and bread sticks tho.. every thing is extra.

A group of friends met for dinner last night night. Our server was very good and our food was excellent. We each had a drink with our dinner, my friends and I had wine and I had vodka. When our bills came I noticed that along with my meal and drink I was charged $1.00 for "rocks". When the waitress... More

My husband took me to PV II for my birthday. It was the first time we have tried this restaurant, but it definitely won't be the last. The food and service was outstanding! The atmosphere was very nice and relaxing. Our server was very nice and attentive. We ordered the meatballs for an appetizer, and they were excellent! Our server... More

I have visited this place for lunch many times, but I never been here for dinner. We started with garlic bread and calamari they were very nice, but my entrée was a little disappointing, I ordered the Eggplant Parmigiana, even though it looked amazing it was cold all the way through, sent it back for it to come back still...

I am surprised at some of the negative reviews. I have eaten here many many times since it opened and have never had a bad experience. The food is always top notch, the Vidalia onion salad dressing is amazing.. The service has always been excellent also. I would have no problem recommending PVII to anyone, in fact I have brought...

Some girlfriends and I ate dinner there. None of us had been before. We got there about 5 till 5:00 and it was not yet open. So, note that it does not open till 5:00. Once inside the atmosphere was very nice with a fireplace and an attentive waitress. The menu had several upscale Italian choices, therefore it was a... More

I've been coming to PV2 since it was the original Pontivecchio's. I've always loved the food. Had dinner there last night and was sorry to see it seems to be going downhill. The tablecloth had crumbs and a smear right where my plate would be; it had not been changed between customers. The paint on the walls is peeling where... More

I can't say enough about PVII, this place is fantastic! The waitstaff is friendly and courteous, and the food is outstanding. It's not a "quick" place to grab dinner before hustling to a movie, but if you want to eat some outstanding Italian food and have a conversation with a date, friends, family, etc., this is the place!

It has been a long time since I ate here and they were as good as I remembered. The Lobster Bisque is amazing, the scallops are the best I have had here in central Illinois. They were fresh and tender. The food is excellent. A great place to get good food!

Getting together with friends should always be a fun experience and PV II made it happen. Staff was very personable and our server was on her third day there but seemed like she had been there longer. She was quit attentive and made sure our needs were taken care of. Bravo to her! Everyone enjoyed their food and said the... More
