My family and I have been regulars at Effina's for years. We love the food ,servers & owners. I get the alabama field green salad and add chicken most of the time and David gets the special or seafood. The kids love the pizza and meatballs. I highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions and just eating out .

I have been to Effina's several times in the past few years, and it has remained consistently good, and at a reasonable price. They usually have a large selection of specials each day, so I haven't had much of what is on the standard menu. Staff are always helpful and friendly.

The pasta was fresh and quite flavorful. You must try a piece of limoncello cake. One of the best desserts I've had in a while. The atmosphere was pleasant, not too... More

My family ate there the other evening. One of our party ordered a salad with added grilled chicken, which was delicious. Another member of our party ordered the seafood scampi. The dish was bland and the grilled vegetables were burned and inedible. I ordered the steak cooked medium served with scallops. The steak was burned on both sides and over... More

Ate here the night before the annual Chief Ladiga Marathon! Perfect for preparing to run 26.2 miles! Delicious pastas! I enjoyed the chicken parmigiana, my husband had a ribeye and our daughter ate spaghetti and meatballs. We also ordered calamari as an appetizer and shared a tiramisu for dessert. ALL DELICIOUS! Great friendly service as well.
