Wow! This was an amazing Italian experience with authentic foods. The warm bread comes straight for the wood fire oven. Our server Joshua was outstanding! He memorized our entire order along with the rest of his 6 table section and was on point with every request made.

We have been here several times and I can't think of one negative thing to say. Believe everything good you read/hear. It's a casual restaurant with large portion quality meals. Prices are very reasonable (Most meals in the $13-$15 range). We have only had to wait for a table one time. Service is prompt and friendly. Obviously their specialty is... More

We have been going to Italian Gardens for many many years and the food quality has never changed. It has always been good and well prepared. Their selection is great their ribs are terrific and their pasta dishes are Supreme. The servers and service has always been very good. The only minor complaint I might have is that sometimes it...

This is a classic Italian Restaurant dating back to the 1930's. Their specials on Tuesday and Wednesday are the best. "Two for Tuesday", buy one get one free. Or 25 cent spaghetti on Wednesday with one purchased at full price. Everything comes with all the salad and bread you can eat.

I can think of no other restaurant in Flint that is independent and and non-chain based. We ended up dinning here with a big group of mixed family. Portions are huge, price is right, and its...

Best pasta around the Flint area. Great tasting and Big portions. I love their meat sauce. The ribs are my favorite in Flint. They have family style salads. The bread is cooked in a big wood fire oven right there. It does get a little loud when the room is full, but somehow that seems fitting.

We've had this catered in a few times at my job and either you love or hate it. I don't care for the sweet sauce (as usually served in Northern Italy) and the Alfredo sauce- I find to be very bland and flavorless. The bread is awesome. I've had chicken from here years ago and thought it was very good.... More

Came here for lunch on a whim. Had never been here before, even though we've lived in the area for 70+ years. Happened to be on Two for Tuesday, where if you order an entree and two beverages, you get the second entree gratis. Never heard of such a thing, but sounded like a deal to me. I ordered the...
