The food was great. They had very large portions. The lasagna was huge and delicious. We wanted to sit outside and half the seating out there was empty the whole time we were there, but were told we couldn't sit there. Not sure why they have the patio if they aren't going to use it.

Poultry quality is very low. Salad was very basic with salmon straight from a farm. Heavy use of olive oil & butter to hide poor quality products. And all though service was attentive, they were very dominant. Definitely overpriced for the quality. I would not return

This is my wife's favorite Italian Restaurant, and mine as well. Naturally, this is where my wife wanted to eat on her birthday and she wasn't disappointed. Loved it and you will too.

Went there for a dinner on a weekday? Stayed outside on the terrace. Food was very good and service was nice. Portions are big, had to ask for take away at the end. Recommended if you are into a bit higher resto/service experience.

We tried toasted (fried) ravioli for the first time ever, and it was good, but nothing to rave about. My wife's salad was pretty plain, but fresh, crisp and tasty. My linguini tutto mare was a large portion and loaded with sauce, and a decent amount of seafood, but nothing that made you say, "wow." The bread (OK, but not... More

Took out of town guest here for lunch. We were seated on pleasant outdoor patio. Menu looked interesting, but prices were high (about $13.00 for lunch main course with salad or other side priced separately.) Service was not attentive and food, when it arrived, not worth the price or wait. All three pasta dishes were somewhat unpleasant, overcooked, or otherwise... More

Came here with my husband for a quick lunch date and we were both impressed. The wait staff was very nice and our food was delivered promptly. I had the baked mostacolli and it was very good, but keep in mind that you'll need a box for sure! There's two full servings of food in each dish but the good... More

We had a great experience at Favazza. I booked a reservation with John Favazza for my dad 80th birthday. The customer service was awesome and the food was great. We had a party of 32 and the staff was wonderful. Great atmosphere!! Thanks to everyone at Favazza for making my dads day so special!!
