Wonderful rustic environment. Very family friendly. The rolls with garlic butter should be considered a narcotic. Service was great. Unending salad and unbelievable entrees. Chicken francese is the best I have ever had.

This place has always been a favorite of mine. The food is unlike all the other Italian restaurants in the area, very good flavor and the garlic rolls are incredible. The lasagna is my favorite and I order it every time. There is usually a wait time for seating but the food is worth it in my opinion. The only... More

Made a reservation, went right in and was seated. The salad and garlic rolls are a meal, but you don't want to get out of there without trying that lasagna, and italian spaghetti with their spaghetti sauce. More dishes but this is our favorites.

I had heard so many good things, and was disappointed. The food was tasteless, we had a variety of entree's and appetizers and were dissatisfied with the lack of flavor and taste. Signature garlic rolls were just plain bread soaked, I mean drenched in butter and shaved garlic, so eh, average. Service did not make up for food lacking, we... More

My wife and I had dinner at Provino's last night. The service was great, the menu had a very large selection and our choices were just right. She dined on the meat ravioli while I feasted with the Veal Marsala...both were outstanding. The accompanying dinner roles were more soft than I can describe...covered with garlic butter (not for every taste).... More

I have heard about Provino's for years and just went with some family members to try it out. Down pretty far on my list of good Italian places. Not much overhead light. The service was good. The prices were rather high The food tasted fresh, but the marinara sauce apparently was made with a large dose of SAGE. Perhaps someone... More

My wife and I have enjoyed Provino's for almost 40 years. The food is always great, as it was for a recent "a movie and dinner." [We had to change the order of "dinner and a movie" to avoid falling asleep during the movie.] But I want to thank Provino's for supporting SCA by donating its signature Italian Salad and... More

My family and I went here for my birthday. First time at this restaurant. I was impressed. I have heard how good everything is there for years. Great service, food was fantastic and you get a free meal on your birthday. Definitely better than any Olive Garden that I've been too. No comparison. We had a 40 minute wait. Well... More
