A friend made a dinner reservation for 12 of us on a Saturday night. I had eaten there a couple of times before and enjoyed it. Even though we had a reservation there didn't seem to be enough staff on hand for all the customer's there. Our server, Ashley was wonderful and made sure we were well taken care of.... More

My wife and I ate here for a dinner on one of their only 2 nights a year they seem to be open. We have tried to eat here on many occasions yet they always seem to be closed. Not sure what the deal is. We ordered a couple traditional dishes and they were not even of fast food Italian... More

John, the owner, has a rich Italian accent and cooks from the heart. If John is cooking that night, you can count on a delicious meal. After years of eating here, we've learned what to order. Saltimbocca and osso bucco are standards on the menu. Service can be erratic, depending upon staffing that night. They list things on the menu... More

This place has horrible food. I ordered a baked potato and it was raw! So I sent it back and the next potato as also raw. After spending way too much time here we gave up. Never again!

They can't even cook a baked potato. I sent it back three times because it was raw. Yuck! In the end I didn't eat it and we'll never go back.

I am a Cheney local and I have never heard a good thing about this place. One evening I decided to give it a try. At a glance everything looks upscale until you realize everything around you is actually garage sale items. Cheap, plastic-junk. I walked in and no was there to seat me. I waited for a bit and...

This was our second time at Lenny's...we are Cheney/Spokane locals and it was a Friday night. My husband got spaghetti and meat balls, which were pretty good. I ordered chicken spiralli...it was a rough time. We took it home to see if maybe it was just "me"...definitely not. The service is always good, the food is just hit and miss... More

Not much to say... All seems to be made with purchased sauces and pasta. Hasn't improved at all since my last visit shortly after opening years ago

We have finally given up on this place, the food is consistently bad. The restaurant is in dire need of a good cleaning, the decor is so jam packed with garage sale freebies it's confusing. The menu hasn't been updated in years, the same old dishes prepared the same uninspired way. I had the "homemade" lobster ravioli smothered in a... More
