Not a big red sauce fan so I ordered the shrimp scampi Alfredo, as did my daughter. We were very disappointed with the sauce. Was like no Alfredo I have ever had. Thick and quite sour tasting . Actually tasted like sour cream and lemon. Tried to find some noodles without the sauce to salvage the meal, but there was... More

My girlfriend and I came here because we heard about this steak and spaghetti special on the radio. Well the steak had a funny taste to it, almost like it has been in the freezer for a while and my girlfriend asked for her steak well done and I asked for mine to be med-rare, my steak came out and...

I order the steak and spaghetti whenever they have it on special. For 10.99, it's a bargain. The food was very good. I don't care for wine, but I had a draft beer. They have a pretty good selection of beers on tap. The service was very good, friendly and quick. Nothing negative to say.

I have been here a couple of times with family and friends that have varied tastes and all of us left feeling satisfied. My favorite is the steak and spaghetti and each are cooked to the way I prefer. Their appetizers can be meals in themselves. The steamed mussels were fantastic. Additionally, there are mixed drinks are quite tasty. Very... More

Crispignas is that place you go to if you are celebrating a certain time or event. The atmosphere is calm and inviting, for instance all booths have beautiful dark wood high back chairs which keeps conversations private and gives a sense of privacy. The menu features solid Italian cuisine which is backed up by the Crispigna family sauces. My favorite... More

Ordered a pizza here one night when we were in town for a family function. The crust was exactly how I like it--just slightly chewy with a great flavor. We ordered pepperoni on it, so it was a little greasy, but not overly so. It also had just the right amount of sauce. The staff was also exceedingly friendly and... More
