Small restaurant that is in the process of expanding. Lunch portions are big and the food is tasty. Cannot believe the quality of the food for the price

The delivery service was terrible. Was really late, not the delivery persons fault. They wrote down the wrong address. I saw it on the ticket. We just moved to Roanoke and was really excited to try this restaurant based on it's reviews. The pizza was bland and the lasagna generic. It has to be made from a can or box.... More

This gem was what one thinks of when wanting the Full Italian Dining experience!First the atmosphere is intimate for two or a party of ten;the music of Dean Martin quietly serenading you to a table and the friendly staff start you out right.We ate there twice in just a few days apart and they both proved the same great eating...

Inside it was dark with soft music, the kind of place one might like to take a date. It didn't take long to be seated. Still, after a couple of minutes without being waited on and seeing others that came in after us get water, etc., I was not too happy. Once our waitress did come by, things got better... More

While visiting relatives over the Holidays, decided we need to take them out one night for dinner. They suggested the Italian Bistro and am I glad they did. First a stop at the wine store, as you are permitted to bring your own wine for a mere $2.00 corking fee. I failed to get (ok remember) our server's name but... More

The Italian Bistro delivers consistently good food and the service is always excellent and attentive. It is locally owned and offers a variety of choices to please everyone's palate. We enjoy the food as well as the opportunity to BYOB. Today everyone ordered something different...Chicken Saltimbocca, Chicken Piccata, Shrimp Scampi and Chicken Marsala. Everyone was pleased and only the ladies... More

Went to the Bistro on a Tuesday night and it was packed, so reservations are in order. We had reservations and our party of seven were promptly seated. The evening started slow where we had to ask for menus and water but come to find out they were two people short that night. Fontana, was great with our orders and... More

We took two of our clients out for lunch. The restaurant is very cozy but quiet which allows for conversation without having to shout. The food is incredible. I personally prefer the Special Spaghetti which comes with a meat sauce, sliced Italian sausage and mushrooms. Service is prompt and professional. Food is cooked to order do there is time for...

This is locally owned and has authentic Italian food. Lots of choices from calzones, pizza, to dinners. Go early or make reservations. Great service.

Why do we stay away so long from the people and food we love........I was guilty and corrected this with my youngest daughter's leaving the home town luncheon. We ordered our favorite appetizer Calamari..... Best served in the DFW Metroplex. The lunch salad crisp and cold. I go for the house dressing myself. Tables filled with oven fresh bread. Our...
