“outdated restaurant,outdated food”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

I love family run restaurants versus the chains, but this doesn't cut it. Bar service was friendly,(the owners daughter) but hurried. The soup was doctored food service grade , but it did arrive hot. The raviolis were supermarket grade frozen, bathed in a sauce that had spent too much time on the burner. I guess the place is popular because of the quantity, but I'd rather they up the quality and cut the volume. Clientele was heavily tattooed, and wearing wife beaters and shorts.

“Love this place”
Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

Firstly, the service and people that work their are super friendly and nice. The food I've eaten there has always been great and large portions for the money. This is a great place to go out for date, or with the family, or even to have a couple apps and drinks, always please with this place and is a comfortable environment

“Large servings and delicious!”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

This was my first time eating here.I always like to try the meatballs when eating at an Italian restaurant.They are delish! I was with a group of 8 women and we ordered appetizers of deep fried artichokes and fried ravolli. I had the combo platter so I could try the ravolli, meatball, sausage, veal, and of course the pasta. The waitress, Teresa asI recall, was just awesome!! She was so pleasant and sweet as could be! One of the best for sure. I could tell this was an old family restaurant. I liked it immediately. Not the usual chain restaurant. The Comfort Inn across the street made this a very convienent and delicious choice!.

“Great Home Made Italian Food Friendly Bar Staff”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

We have been eating at Calitri's once or twice a week since 1978. The food and service is always great and the prices are definitely fair! We usually eat in the bar side and have held many business meetings in their private rooms. If you like home made Italian food and friendly family owned service Calitri's is the place to go in the Danvers area.

“Italien Food”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

I go here often for Italien food. Service is nice. Large dining room and private room for smaller parties. Bar is nice, a sports bar, nothing fancy, but the food is good. They have a special for Mother's Day every year.
