We dined there for a nice night out. We were greeted by our hostess and seated right away. We ordered the calamari appetizer which was cooked perfectly. Our entrees we had the Seafood Alfredo and the Chicken Parmigiana . The portions are large and the taste was out of this world. You can tell everything was homemade. Definitely on of the best Italian restaurants in the area. We will go there again.

We went to this restaurant as recommended by the hotel staff. It is located in a strip mall not far from the airport. The staff was welcoming and helpful and the service excellent. We ordered two entrees which came with choices of soup or salad (both very good) and then the enormous entrees arrived. We took half of it home for lunch the next day. If you let the staff know you were sent over by one of the local hotels they give you a 10% discount on the bill. The sauce could be a little spicier but otherwise the food was excellent.

A lost reservation had our group of 6 waiting far longer than expected and the hostess had zero personality, making the wait seem longer and more intolerable than usual. Why you pick someone who clearly has no talent for dealing with the public to be your hostess is a mystery to me; just keeping us updated on our wait would have gone a long way to appeasing us. We had eaten here on multiple occasions in the past though I guess more time than usual had passed as the renovations were a surprise to us. It looks like they are turning it more into its sister restaurant, Roma, which we had eaten at as well but it didn't have the cozy feel that Taste of Italy used to have (the jury is still out on the renovations since they weren't done yet). The food and service were as good as always once we did finally get seated. I'm sure we'll be back but next time we'll make our reservations online rather than trust the phone.

We took large group of 25 to dinner. The staff was pleasant and could accommodate our group easily. Mussels marinara was very good. Food overall was better than expected with large portions. They have a bar with wide selection. Italian food was authentic. No complaints.
