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...

Favazza's always has great food,attentive service and good prices. The salads were excellent as always and the four different entrees came timed just right. Everybody commented on how good they were. The serving sizes are large so all took home a well packaged container of food. Nobody had room for dessert. When leaving every employee bid us goodnight.

Went with a large group and sat at their banquet room. The servers were all friendly and gave good service. The room is large enough for the 40 of us, with space to move around. The food choices were of course limited, but found the pan-seared chicken to be tasty and came out hot. My wife had the samon and... More

In a city filled with great Italian restaurants, I don't know how this one has survived. I just had the worst restaurant experience in years. We started with the crab stuffed mushrooms. Ok. Nothing to write home about. Mostly bread. I ordered the steak Modiga. My husband ordered the veal saltimbocca. Our companion ordered the veal piccata. Only the piccata... More

Good food. Wife's dish could of been warmer. Nice atmosphere. Service was good. We come here about once a year. I'd rate at 4 1/2.

We met friends for dinner on a Saturday night. I've eaten at Favazza's many, many times over the years and have never been disappointed. However, on this evening we remarked that Favazza's has slipped a bit. We did not order appetizers, but all ordered entrees excluding one of the off-menu specials. We commented that the butter / garlic bread was... More

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
