My husband is a native of Italy, thus kindness to him is often expressed with a gift card to an Italian Eatery. - Due to the kindness of a work associate, we dined here in December with our teenage son. The service here was lacking. We seemed to be a problem to our server although we ordered, received our drinks,... More

I remember going to The Hill when they actually controlled who visited at certain times. We always went for the good food and to visit certain "family." I did not know of Favazza's back then, but it has certainly grown in reputation over the years. The wait is often long, crowded and noisy. The drinks are not their strong point... More

This was my first trip to Favazza's, and I came for dinner with my family. I tried the pasta special they had for the day, which was good and there was plenty of it. It tasted even better the next day left over. The rest of my family really enjoyed their food. The bread they serve with the meal is... More

There were three in our party, and all three of us could not say a bad thing about our dining experience. Our server was very attentive and polite. He made the dinner really nice. I had the Cavatelli Con Brocolli. It was one of the very best I have eaten anywhere. The sauce was rich and very flavorful. All three... More

There are many dining rooms and the place is clean. We sat on the patio which would be their outdoor area during the summer. It was closed in for the winter and a fire was burning. All of the food was very good. The garlic bread is excellent and the tiramisu had the perfect consistency in the cream layers. The... More

First of all, the ambience is lovely and the staff is cordial. Not a lot of personality but polite. I was with a large group of people and visiting with them when I gave my order. I ordered cannelloni, the waiter asked me something about the salad and I asked what dressing they had and he said red vinaigrette which... More

My husband and I went for lunch yesterday and we were extremely disappointed. Favazza's has always had a reputation of being one of the best restaurants on The Hill. However, our lunch did not live up to that reputation. The Eggplant Parm was inedible. Over cooked and chewy, like leather. The Steak Mudega was shameful. Such a poor cut of... More

My wife and I had a nice leisurely lunch at Favazza's. A jewel of a restaurant on the Hill. Salad, soup and pizza were all great.

We had a large family gathering for a holiday dinner. We were seated downstairs, which appeared to be a good thing for our group. About 10 minutes into our visit, water started dripping from the ceiling onto my nephew. The staff kind of laughed it off, didn't even apologize, and didn't offer to move our table out of the way...
