“A very satisfying experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

20 adults and children celebrated my mothers 90th birthday and the joy of the occasion was enhanced by the food and service. A very good value in a very comfortable atmosphere.

“Avoid with Big Parties”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

My husband and I had taken my Mother-in-law there several times and teh food and service was very good. However, it was on a week day. We then went on mothers day. We recieved drinks and appatisers and then did not see the waitress for an hour. then a different waitress showed up and tried to get our dinners; still nothing. We were just about to walk out after two hours and the hostess showed up. She said there was some issue with the kitchen and then we got our dinners aftter waiting tow hours! They did discount the bill, but left a very bad taste. Also, they had set up for big parties and must have bought the chairs from Job Lot. They were so uncomfortable. It will be a while before we go back. NEVER with a large party. NEVER on a holiday.

“Never Disappointed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

I've been to Calandra's restaurants many times with friends, family & coworkers nobody is ever disappointed. The food & service are always top notch. There catering is always delivered timely and food is always great. I cant say enough good things about Calandra's food especially their bread & deserts. They actually give you a loaf of bread to take home no where else does that.

“Good Italian Food!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

I was there for lunch and it was a good experience. The enviroment of the restaurant is sofisticated, with good space and warm atmosphere... the food was really good, I fully recommend the pasta.
