“Great Italian, but a little pricey.”
Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

We are locals and went here for the first time last night. Clean and great atmosphere. Food was excellent, but is a little on the high side for Italian. Service was great. It is very close to I71, so if you are traveling, it will not take you far from the interstate.

“Will return!”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

On a Saturday at 6:30 we called in to see what the wait was and were told it was 70 to 80 minutes. We put our name on the "call ahead" seating list and arrived about 20 minutes later. The waiting area is very small and the bar was packed. We were lucky enough to snag some bar seats after a bit and with a pitcher of house red ($22) we settled back for the wait. The bartenders were hopping but were able to pay attention to everyone. We ordered the Pasta Sostanza, a great meatless meal, and Veal Piccata. Both came with salad and delicious bread with dipping oil. The food and service were both good. The dining area is really not that large. We were seated at a four top but there were many booths which I will preference next time. If you are not in a hurry and want a relaxing and nice meal, I would recommend Carrabba's.

“Can't celebrate here!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Have been going here for years for special occasions and nights out. Have recently had very difficult time getting in even with "call ahead" seating. Tried to "call ahead" five days in advance for family birthday celebrations but after arriving we were told over an hour wait. They don't take reservations and call ahead is the best you can do. I understand the reasons for this, but it seems like a better solution could be found for families and small groups. Carrabba's is basically writing off this kind of business by not offering a better way to reserve a table. We ended up going elsewhere. We like the food and atmosphere here, but think there needs to be some creativity on the part of management.

“The Trio and Steak Salad Folks!”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

I'm not even going to say anything else. The chicken trio and the steak salad at this place are all you need to know about dining out in Mason, OH.

“great service with great food”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

One of the best meals we can remember. Sirloin Marsala on the Johnny was one of the best things I've ever eaten. Service from our waiter was quick and efficient. The entire restaurant seemed to move smoothly.
