This is a family owned business by folks that came from Calabria, Italy. As being first generation Italian-American with parents that immigrated from Calabria, I had high expectations of the food. I was not disappointed in the least. The salmon and the chicken francese dishes...were amazing. Generous portions and delicious sauces. We had a side of meatballs for our daughter and they were huge and also delicious. They tasted exactly how my mother makes her meatballs and she is an excellent home cook according to my entire family. The wait staff were extremely friendly and the owner even had a small bouquet of flowers brought to all of the mothers in the restaurant - a very nice touch. For those of you that follow Dave Portnoy's One Bite Pizza reviews on social media, this place got a 7.7 from Dave on their pizza - a very good score. I will definitely be coming here again.More

We ordered simple pasta dishes and they were excellent. Really good sauces, large tasty portions and an excellent salad with house dressing. I get it - I understand why this place is so popular. I’m very anxious to come back and try a few specials....BTW, the house Merlot was really good. Let it sit a bit.More

Last night I ordered a grilled shell steak for takeout and what I got was a shell steak that was cut in half and for the same price for the whole shell steak which it went up from $18 to $24. I should have taken...it back but did not. I understand that business has been bad since the pandemic but this is pitiful and bad for future business, been ordering for years but been so disappointed the last few months. Will not order again from this establishment. JuniorMore

Traveling on business, I stopped here for dinner. Not a huge place, but nice. I sat at the bar. The food was tremendous. The marina sauce was fantastic. I had Broccoli Rabe for an app, the chicken francese for dinner that came with a side...of ziti. If you are around here, you should stop.More

It's been many years since the last time I've been here, I can say the food is as good as it was all those years ago. Yesterday I attended a birthday party held here, it was a group of about 35 people. The food was...delicious, fresh, and served hot. My wife and myself had the veal parmigiana. It was cooked perfectly, very tender. The salad, Bruschetta, and pasta was excellent. The room was noisy, but hey it was a party of 35. There wasn't one complaint from anyone who attended the party. I will definitely return!More

Bazzarelli's has been in business for over 45 years making excellent quality, affordable and very tasty Italian food. The menu is vast, the service is good, the staff is friendly, and people like me have been going there for many years. Always good!

We were visiting friends in the area and this restaurant was recommended. The menu is not abundant but the quality is. Very good Italian food. The atmosphere is good but a little too bright for my taste. Overall a fine dining experience. The only negative...was some fairly loud uncontrolled children.More

The food at Bazarelli is always good. The portions are large so I had dinner and lunch the next day. The service is attentive. There was a large party the night we went and it was very noisy.

Bazzarelli's "technically does have a wine list"; but it is not that extensive and features mostly carafe's of house wine. In addition to house wines they offer a variety of beer's and specialty mixed drinks. Hope this... More
