I was blown away by the authentic quality of our meals. We ordered Oso Busco (occasional special) and baked cheese ravioli. The Oso was simply amazing and fell off the bone and melted in your mouth. The cheese ravioli is clearly hand made and very reminiscent of my favorite Italian restaurant in Elizabeth, NJ (Spirito's Italian Restaurant). The staff is... More

We had a family dinner at Italia on a Saturday night. The service is extremely friendly and amazing. Portions are very large. The vodka sauce was heavenly. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that I thought the prices were a little high.

Italia is located in an unassuming strip mall. Do not be put off by the location. Once you open the doors you are in a very warm and welcoming space. The interior looks like it has been recently renovated. The food is delicious. The portions are large. We had enough left overs for a second meal. The food is moderately... More

My husband, son and I usually have Sundaydinner at Italia on Sunday evenings. I feel as though I'm in Italy, although we are not Italian but have been to Italy several times. At Italia, the food is deliciously prepared and authentic. We have never had a bad meal there and also find the service good although at very busy times... More

This restaurant has undergone a renovation and so the prices have risen dramatically. It used to be a place in a strip mall with reasonably priced food. They charged us $6.00 for a small, wilted salad that was worth about $.50. It had half of a grape tomato and a small piece of onion. We last went to the restaurant... More

This used to be a very good, reasonably priced restaurant. No more. The food quality has gone down, just forget take-out, many things taste left over - or not cooked correctly. It used to be very good, don't know what has happened - is a shame.

You can't go wrong with Italia. I've been here a ton of times. The food is great. The service is sometimes spotty, but not terrible. The kicker here is that its very inexpensive for what you're getting. Eggplant rollatini is the best, gnochhi are great and chicken marsala is great. Tons of other great options on the menu. P.S. the... More
