Atmosphere is very nice. Has an upstairs that is more formal and a downstairs that is casual with a bar. We enjoy their food very much. Best upscale Italian food in Redlands. Evrything is excellent. Enough said.

We went here for a Friday night dinner, was referred by a co-worker. Nina was our server in the bar area and she was awesome. Couldn't have asked for better service. The deep dish pizza was absolutely delicious, ordered a small for two of us and took home leftovers! A fun place to eat dinner - we are going to try the upstairs dining next time.

We arrived for an early dinner upstairs. The bar was busy and there was a young girl at the desk. She remained seated in her chair and told us to sit in waiting area and we would be seated shortly. We waited about 15. The hostess came back, another girl came and sat with the first. The hostess was busy with some large groups that apparently had reservations for the bar. The small rush died down and a couple entered and asked for seating for two upstairs. To our amazement they were immediately led upstairs! My husband approached the desk where the two teens were chatting and asked them why we were still waiting when that couple were seated immediately? Blank stares. Then one girl said "well she did not know you were waiting." Exactly! There was no list and obviously that girl had trouble remembering who she sent to the wait area. We were the only ones there for upstairs, one other couple waiting for downstairs. The girl NEVER apologized, just resumed her conversation with her co-worker. The hostess returned and escorted us up. She apologized when we told her . Obviously those two girls were not mature enough to be in that position.
Upstairs our waitstaff were friendly. Our meal was just ok. Great salad but the veal parm was not the usual. It tasted burnt, maybe old oil. The bar was out of the only Italian beer they serve and they were out of the chocolate cake on their dessert menu. Really ? Early on a Saturday nite?
It will be awhile before we give this restaurant another chance, obviously they are having management issues.

Pizza was very good. I ordered two thin crust and one Chicago style pie. All came at the same time ( it takes 30-40 mins to cook the Chicago style pizza., which meant the thin crust was not that hot, but still good. If you're a transplant from the east, it gets the job down. Try the wings as well, they look like drumsticks and you get a nice portion. Outside the food, the place was and family friendly. Lots of televisions and sports on most. Wait staff was not to friendly but did their jobs. I had a party of eight, so we had to pay a 18percent gratuity - probably the reason we didn't get a lot of attention.

A coworker and I went to the pizzeria section (downstairs) and discovered that you can order of the Italian dining menu as well. Veal Parmesan is getting harder to find these days, so seeing it on the menu made it a must-try. I wasn't disappointed. I was transported back to my native east coast by the glorious red sauce! It's very hard to find that kind of sauce in the pacific northwest.

A couple of nights later several of us decided to celebrate the end of our work in San Bernardino with a group dinner. We decided on Chicago-style deep dish pizza at Romano's. The native Chicagoan in our group pronounced the pizza almost as good as back home versions. Throw in a waitress who was saucy in her own right and some beer and a good time was had.

I'm looking forward to going there again whenever business takes me in that vicinity again. Maybe even twice.
