“Plenty of food, but just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

I had dined here before many years ago with family, but switched over to the Union Hotel restaurant across the street, as friends from the area said it was much better than Negri's. Well after dining at both places now several times over the past few years, it's a toss up. They both provide an abundance of mediocre food, but no dish stands out from either restaurant. If you dine with a "family style" selection, you'll get the usual bread basket and butter, minestrone soup, salad with choice of dressing, antipasti, raviolies with meat sauce and your entree selection. Service can be on the slow side, as this restaurant is all about serving large families and groups. For the best service, pick a dining time before the main seating and preferably during the week when they aren't as busy and actually can provide a reasonable degree of service. The decor has remained the same through many years, with a few added family photos which add a homey touch to the otherwise stark interior.

“Italian Family Style?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

Huge portions of really average food. What the food lacked in quality they made up for in quantity...too much food and so many better eating spots within a block of this place...

“Food was ok-Service was very poor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

Used to be a great place to eat.
We brought our grown children and grandchildren for a much anticipated great meal. Server took the order right away but food was not served for a long time.Food was just average.They charged for coke refills. They acted like they were doing us a favor to serve us.
