The staff were so kind. I have quite a few allergies and they were so wonderful about it! They made sure all my food was allergy friendly and went above and beyond. They even recommended foods that would taste the best given my allergies! Will...100% be going again.More

Delicious 25th Wedding Anniversary dinner from La Contessa. Thank you to Sarah for being so helpful in figuring out how we could get our dinner out to us. We ordered their Arancini and calamari appetizer , very delicious. Our main course we had lamb ossobucco...and veal cream, have enough for a dinner again. They even gave us on the house dessert, made our special night even more special despite being confined to our hotel room. Looking forward to dinning at the restaurant when this Pandemic is over. Thank you also to the staff who prepared our meals, everything was perfect and piping hot.More

Today was my first experience I have had with La Contessa and it was amazing. I called well after the kitchen was closed for take out and the staff member went out of her way to ask the chef if they could still serve us....The chef not only agreed but my family has now tasted the best pasta we have ever had. The seafood, pasta, veal and even down to the lemon slice was extremely fresh. Upon arriving at home, we opened the bag and there was also a hand-written note thanking us for our business. We will definitely be returning regularly. Fantastic food and service. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.More

I have been a long term customer of this restaurant and have never once been disappointed by either the food or the service. The entire team understands what is needed to give you the best experience possible and they consistently deliver. Fred H.

The tables for two are crammed together in a small room. The staff were very friendly but we found the dinners to be very overpriced compared to similar restaurants in the area. Example the sea bass was $57. If you want a good dinner but...are willing to pay much more than other restaurants which are as good or better than you will enjoy it but it will be our last visit.More

After a horrible experience first time, we went again. Friends booked not knowing about our experience and we were all concerned. It turned out that ownership changed and restaurant was a HIT. Everything was really good - from service, food, to atmosphere... We were not...ripped off this time so overall experience was very positive and I needed to put a positive review this time. Good job guys. Hope it stays like this.More

Myself and my wife went to LaContessa for dinner and went with the chefs choice. Luigi was our server and was absolutely wonderful!! The chefs choice consisted of two apps each, a salad, a pasta dish, a beautiful entree and dessert. Our entree on this...particular night was rack of lamb. Everything was delicious and such a nice change to not know what you will be getting for dinner!! Great atmosphere as well. Will definitely be coming back soon!!More
