Given all the rave reviews maybe we just hit them on an off day, but this was not an experience I would recommend. Our meals were watery and tasteless. The chicken saltimbocca was soggy due to poorly drained vegetables and pasta, and they seemed to have left the gorgonzola out of the cream sauce in the fusilli with chicken and... More

Pasta is always good, but flavors here are exceptional! 20 years I've been indulging at this place. It's well worth it!

Food and sauces are not authentic Italian American. Pasta is not homemade and Parmesan cheese is hard, dry pre packaged grated and tasteless. How hard would it be to serve freshly grated parmigiano reggiano. Same your money and keep driving.

Excellent Italian and American dishes. We love the calimari and the fish specials are always good and fresh.

I just recently went here for the first time... and then I went back two more times in a month! I don't eat a lot of pasta so I don't usually seek out Italian restaurants. That said, I love this place! It has a great neighborhood feel. I had the veal and it was outstanding. Portion size was very generous.... More

This is a most average effort at making Italian food, the type of thing you might be able to do at home. My girlfriend and I had just had disappointing appetizers at another El Jebel restaurant and decided to get some Italian as an entree. The chicken saltimbocca was dry, in an under-reduced, watery, bland sauce. The server talked us... More
