Food is basic and barely ok. Waitress was not interested in serving us or working that night. Salad was old, brown and limp. Bread was good and pasta with shrimp and garlic was okay.

A Touch of Italy is located in a strip mall with no sign. There were 6 tables seated, so about a third of the available tables were occupied . The crab cakes were made with artificial crab meat - so can a restaurant really call...More
