Loud, small portions, dim light hiding poor furniture, and lousy service. Too bad as it used to be the place to go for Italian food in Eugene

Mazzi's was established in 1970 in it's current location and has an atmosphere that is both casual and romantic. We use local and organics ingredients whenever possible and have our own farm located minutes from the restaurant. Thank you for your review.

We've been going to Mazzi's for many years and the food is consistently good as well as the service and the last visit was no different. Of course the in house baked rolls are fabulous. It happened to be my Dads birthday, my parents have celebrated both their b.days there for 30 years !!

After reading the scathing reviews of wait staff, and knowing we needed to use the Groupon before it expired, we tentatively went to Mazzi's last night. Maybe we got lucky, but our waitress was outstanding! She was there checking on us all the time, and was really friendly and helpful. She was the highlight actually of our dinner out. Was the food good, yes. Was it great, no. It reminds me of grandma's Italian cooking. Fresh ingredients, prepared well. But was it my favorite Italian experience, nope. I prefer Noli's no question.

Calzone was good, but was more like a pizza topped with a pizza crust, ie. WAY too much crust, or rather far too little filling. For $15 you don't have to be that skimpy with filling a calzone up. That wasn't what we were hoping for, especially since we live close by if they were good, it would have been nice for occasional take out. But that's not really going to happen.

The chicken special was mostly great. Mashed potatoes with rosemary were fabulous, veggies also very fresh and delicious. Chicken was OK, a little on the rubbery side, and it was sitting in what looked like a bed of oil. Tasty, but a little overdone. It was a rustic, very full and piled up Italian plate.

Since it's close we'll probably give it another try and see how their pasta is, but we won't be ordering either of those dishes again. It's also a hair pricey. I wish Noli was closer and had more seating, they win hands down.

My wife and I were seated at a table next to the patio door, which slammed every single time someone went through the door. It was incredibly annoying to have our table shake, and to be startled by the sound of the door slamming so frequently. Our server took a long time to come get our order. He also wasn't very friendly. Beer selection was good. Food was outstanding. I had the lasagna and I highly recommend it.

We are pretty demanding when it comes to Italian cooking so we cannot recommend the Ravioli nor the Calzone. Marinara sauce was fine. However the atmosphere both inside and outside on a warm summer day was excellent. To go with that, they have a good bar with some good local brews on tap.
