Great food, service and atmosphere. Kid friendly with custom meals to keep my kid happy while mom and I chowed down on the classic. Chef came out and delivered the food and really gave it a personal touch.

We will be back.

This was my second experience dining out since March, and I’m glad to say we felt very safe. This was the perfect location for a birthday lunch, as we sat outside on the lovely, shady patio. The food and service were excellent, as usual.

Would have been 5 star, but wife had a reaction to the gluten free dessert option. Regrettably it wasn't gluten free and it pit a damper on our evening.

The place was beautiful. Nice ambiance, staff was very polite and attentive. The drinks were great everything was great other than the food. It was okay just not flavorful as I would personally like. For that reason I would give it a 8/10.

We had a wonderful evening and the food was outstanding! We stated with the meat and cheese tray along with the calamari. Both were absolutely delicious. The two appetizers were perfect for the five of us. Next we had the Caesar and house salads - they are very generous and they were kind enough to split the Caesars. We ordered the Chilean sea bass, the cioppini, the mushroom ravioli, the gnocchi and the tagliatelle with shrimp. Everything was fabulous- the seafood was fresh and the pasta was cooked to perfection. We split the lemoncello tiramisu and the chocolate cake. It was a wonderful evening and we had an incredible evening.

First visit here, however not the first time for my hubby and parents. The food was outstanding and worth every penny. My only gripe would be the ambiance of the room. We were sat literally right by the front door so I felt like we were at a less expensive restaurant. I do realize with “social distancing” in place was the reason I just didn’t like it. I was hoping for a more intimate location further in the dining area. The server was great but her attendants need a lot more training. Small things, just my observations.

We always enjoy il Calabrese Ristorante and Bar. We live in Dallas and enjoy visiting the Southlake community. It is a lovely town. il Calabrese is our "go to" dining place when we're in the area. This past Memorial Day the restaurant met and exceeded our expectations. The Lemon Drop and Cosmo started us off. She had the salmon. It was perfect! I had a pasta dish. Delicious! We can't wait to return. Highly recommend!
