Every time I return to this family favorite, I know that we are going to get a wonderful meal that includes yummy garlic rolls and an Italian salad. The dining room to separated into several small rooms so you have the feeling of intimacy and quaintness. As remember to go on your birthday and your meal is free.

This restaurant reminds me of 1950s Italian restaurants. The food was wonderful! You have got to have the rolls! They are served warm in a garlic butter sauce! The best!

I don't think I have ever been to Provino's Italian Restaurant when it wasn't someone's birthday. On your actual birthday you receive a free pasta entree which comes with rolls, salad and ice cream. As you eat you can hear other tables singing "happy birthday". You will be asked to show ID verifying your birthdate. Provinos is located in a... More

We've eaten here frequently and this will be our last time! The bathrooms were very dirty, the grapes are covered in dust, the service was terrible and the management was unbelievable!! We had to pay for salad for two people who simply sat at the table. When we asked about the $7.00 charge for the two people we were told... More

I recently at here with a friend on a Friday evening. We had not eaten here in a long time, but have always enjoyed it in the past. This time was no different as the food was outstanding and so was the service. Provino's serves "real" Italian food (not like Olive Garden) that tastes like it was home baked by... More

We ate here on Saturday October 29, 2016. We artived about 7:45 and we were seated immediately. Our waitress asked us what we wanted to drink after being seated for 10 minutes. She asked to take our order but we were waiting on another person and told her so. She came back and asked to take our order but we... More

Finally got a chance to come back and visit after moving to Florida years ago. Same fabulous place it was 16 years ago. So delicious and the best service. The salad and the garlic rolls were from heaven and the chicken and eggplant parmigiana were amazing. Wish we didn't love so far away. So glad we can still say it's... More

My family and I have eaten here many times and loved it every time EXCEPT this one and we WON'T be going back. When we were first seated in one of the back rooms, there was a horrible smell of something industrial that was so strong we could taste it. We asked to be seated in another area and were... More

I could eat here everyday! Oh the breads, the garlic, the butter, the pasta, the sauces. GO here. EAT here. Wait staff is awesome, the place is clean and the ambiance is outstanding. Did I mention the wines?

I have dined here about seven times over the course of four years, and I have never left feeling like I received anything but average. I have friends that really like this place, but they agree that, if not for the garlic rolls and seafood trio, they would have no reason to eat here either. We've had poor service every... More
