Horrible food. We have been there many many times for many years, but this was the worst. Large portions which looked great. But food was burnt, chicken parm was tough, hard to chew & cut. Lasagna was almost black, It was so burnt. Way too...expensive when you didn’t even get a salad with any of the meals. Out of 4 of us only 1 meal was satisfactory. I doubt we return for awhile. We are locals & have loved this place for years. It’s totally gone downhill.More

Tonight was the first time I’ve eaten here and the waitress recommended the chicken Parmesan and I got chicken Parmesan for an entrée and it was excellent and I also got fried calamari for an appetizer and it was really good.

Very disappointed, I was at the hotel for my birthday had dinner there well I was going to sit at the bar but it wasn’t cleaned off she said no dishes washer so we had to wait for her to get it cleaned. So we...just asked for a table waited 15 minutes before she came to the table. Just for our drinks. And went down hill from there not busy but it was like we were not there. But the other customers were getting service. But I am thinking it was because my skin color was darker than the table. Talk to manager she offered me some cheese cake, ( and before any one thinks wrong I asked to talked to the manager after I paid my bill) we are coming back in December but I will try to find a different place to eat. The win was great!!More

We had a quick pizza at the bar later in evening. It was delicious. Then we had breakfast here in am. 4 stars instead of 5 because waitress rushed us at breakfast.

Very busy night, after we arrived a very large group was seated next to us, very loud and annoying, to the point that our waiter apologized to us. Food was "Lackluster", we have better at home. Calamari app. was very good.

Recently, we stayed for a few days in the Oceanfront Holiday Inn attached to this restaurant. We ended up eating several meals at this Italian restaurant. I recommend it highly. We had salad, pizza, appetizers, and a few drinks. It was all delicious. Even better...than we expected. Fresh, high quality ingredients. I only withheld one star because it was always so crowded and hard to get a table. The servers are efficient and friendly, too.More

Ordered the special, chicken parmigiana, for carry out. It was a large serving but the chicken was dry; cheese & sauce did not help make it more palatable. Disappointing.

Good food, needs better bread. The entrees were great, but the bread not so good. The calamari was a little oily. Very good desserts. Good service, nice people. Will come here again next time in Ocean City.

This is our 3rd year coming here and I was very disappointed. This is my birthday week and we look forward to having dinner here. The food was luke warm at best and our waitress messed up the order so that my daughter had to...wait for her meal that came when we were almost finished. The waitrss was unattentive, dropprd our bread on the table and picked it up and put it back on the plate with the rest of the bread. She did not come to see if we wanted more drinks. When my husband got up to find her to ask for containers she was only concerned with giving him our bill!More

I m writing these review for one and only reason: I don’t want more people entrapment in these scum. I’m terribly sorry I have to write my first negative review in my 41 years of experience in restaurant bussiness and after 27 years of cooking...authentic Italian food.long story short calamari greasy overcooked and frozen we were told it was fresh!meatballs frozen uncooked no taste! food came after 47 minutes with 3 tables ahead of us!pizza bitter no taste of tomato overcharged for sausage French fries frozen the worst kind the manager was aggressive in the beginning but polite later on! waitress she forgot our order we were waiting 40 minutes for the food of my daughter she brought our beer 20 minutes after we order it and in the meantime she was flirting with some guy working in the restaurant with only 2 tables to attend us and 1 more! is unacceptable for the business to hire people without manners or perception or professionalism for the job that they don’t have any idea!it is very sad and disappointing for a business like this to misinform the people for the food of my country and give them a bad name and reputation for italian food!I think they should reconsider about it and maybe open some other kind of business far away from Italian food!More

The pizza was really good but the lady on the phone asked for sizes and we picked a large. Then we decided to go with veggie pizza, they didn’t have veggie pizza so we asked them to put all the veggies they have on the...pizza. When we got the pizza, it had anchovies on them which my little sister couldn’t eat because of a seafood allergy. When we called about it, they put us on hold and hanged up five times. On the six time we finally got in touch with the manager and he convinced me that they have no sizes as well as they don’t have any seafood products in their kitchen. We look up the menu shortly after saying thank you , and half the menu is seafood, anchovies, and salmon. They made us feel unwelcome, and we try to be very polite with the situation would not go back after the manager yelled at us, calling a stupid for not knowing the menu.More

Both of our pasta meals were not good. Have been here 3 years in succession. I would not recommend this location currently. We were so shocked at the drop in quality in 8 months that we asked if the restaurant had changed owners!

Had a great dining experience here tonight. The restaurant was crowded when we entered, and it was that way when we left. Obviously a popular spot in OC! And with reason! We had a simple meal of salad and pizza. My wife and I each...got the mista salad, with strawberries and candied walnuts served over a bed of lovely spring lettuces. The shaved pecorino cheese sat on top, and the light raspberry vinaigrette finished the dish beautifully. The salad was a mix of flavors and textures. We both enjoyed every bit of our generous portions. Our entree was the "Buffalo pizza", with pepperoni. The serving is a 14 inch pizza, perfect for those of us who cannot eat as much as we used to! The sauce on the pizza was a savory, herbed tomato sauce, not sweet like most tomato sauces. It was a wonderful change from "the usual". The pepperoni was plentiful. But the highlight of the pizza was the crust. It had been cooked to where the golden color was turning brown, about 10 seconds from being burned. It was the perfect crust. This was as good a pizza as I have ever eaten. It was superb! Our meal was made even more enjoyable by our server Jeff. He was professional and efficient yet personable. His excellent service was in keeping with the rest of the meal. A Taste of Italy will be a destination on every visit we make to OC.More
