Italianissimo Restaurant offers lovely atmosphere and decor, great service and wonderful food . We truly enjoyed our dinner experience . And they offer a 4 course (with a glass of wine ) Prix Fixe Special during the week . I will definitely return.

I recently attended a party at this restaurant and this was my first experience here. I commented to a friend during the appetizer how good it was. Now those of us who eat a lot of seafood know when something is not quite fresh but that was NOT the case here. The seafood salad Scungilli,calamari, shrimp, were quite delicious and... More

Recently had dinner with 3 other guests. Reservation made, arrived early, promptly seated. Immediately waiter came over to take drink order. Our group is never in a rush. Waiter was friendly and patient. Water glass always full. Special I had was soft shell crab Frandsches, was outstanding! We were seated for over 3 hours. Never were rushed out.

My husband I were recently staying at the Navy Lodge. The lady at the front desk recommended this restaurant to us. In a word it was amazing. We had a late lunch there and we did their pre fixe menu. For $24.99 per person we had a four course meal with a glass of wine. The Caesar salad was delicious... More

I was there on Mother's Day with my family. Regrettably, we were perhaps 10 to 15 minutes late with our reservation. Our reservation was for 2:00 pm. My mother-in-law is 94 years old and does not get around quickly. When we arrived we were being seated in the large dining room. My husband mentioned that we had a reservation. We... More

Italianissimo Restaurant serves ample portions but very average Italian food. The wait staff was extraordinary though and very attentive and anxious to please. They do have a small parking lot on the premises but because of the many parties being held there at the time, all of those spaces were taken. We had to look for parking on the street..

I had the recent pleasure of having family gather at the restaurant. There were approximately 20 people in my party. Prior to the event Chef Franco gave me a price for all the guests including a children's selection. I did not have to book the restaurant months in advance. We arrived at the restaurant early when our event ended. We... More

I do understand that I was out to dinner for Thanksgiving and it would not be the same as eating a home cooked Thanksgiving meal, but I still feel Italianissimo could have done better. The restaurant was very crowded so I know we wouldn't see our waiter too often, but he hardly came to check on us at all and... More

An excellent Italian restaurant with good food, great service and warm, comfortable surroundings The prix fixe menu is one of the best deals anywhere. You are served four courses with a glass of wine and, often, a complimentary limongello as an after dinner drink. The quality and quantity of food is great. The service is impeccable and the pacing is... More
