I have been coming here at least once a summer for the past 3-4 years and this year I was so disappointed. The flat bread that is offered on the family style was very good and the special evening pasta was also good a rigatoni with bacon & mushrooms, but the Chicken with lemon and capers was so disappointing, lots...

Mu husband and I stop at Italian Gardens every time we are in the area (about once a year) and it never fails to impress us. The servers are friendly and personable, the atmosphere is really intimate, and the food is phenomenal. The best deal is to get the Mamma Mia option because for $30 a person you get garlic... More

There were 12 of us including 5 kids on vacation at Grandview Lodge. Service was TERRIFIC. We had the family meal and there was plenty of food without asking for more. The food was all very good. I thought the short ribs were excellent. This was an Italian Restaurant, not gourmet, but everyone of the adults would go back. Way... More

Lasagna, lasagna, lasagna. The best lasagna we have ever had. Almost like an inside out lasagna, with a perfect balance of meat, cheese and pasta (not too gooey, like many restaurant lasagnas). The service was incredible. Everyone VERY nice and helpful. The setting was wonderful. The "family" style ordering is a little odd (is it all you can eat? No,... More

I love this place and I had brought 3 others than had not experienced this great place and unfortunately our food was not hot. It was barely warm, so disappointing, the flavors were good, but fish that isn't hot is not appealing. Our salad portions were also very small, I wonder if they were running short and skimped on our... More

I have been wanting to enjoy this place for years and finally did so last week. What a treat! We had the hanger steak with pasta, the striped bass and the sausage and peppers pasta. All of them were fabulous as was the salad and the desserts. I loved everything, service was excellent, the wine was great, not one complaint!... More
