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!
Thank you so much for your review and for stopping by to see us! We're so happy to hear you had a wonderful time on Memorial Day and we look forward to seeing you next time you're on this side of town!
Went for brunch after church on Sunday. Both the food and service were excellent.
Thank you, Bob!
Best place we’ve eaten at in a long time. Food was amazing and service was superb.
Thank you, Stacey!
Very enjoyable ‘social distancing’ inaugural dinner date on their patio!
Thank you, Don!
We loved the drinks, the pasta, the dessert and the service! We felt welcomed the moment we arrived! The ambiance is so contemporary cool and upscale Italian! Our waiter was so attentive and knowledgeable! Everything is made in house and you can tell the quality.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Excellent customer service experience and amazing food.
Thank you so much we cant wait to have you back!
I had not been here since it was renovated. A much different feel but still nice. The food is exquisite. The staff was very gracious and accommodating.
Thank you, Wendy! We hope to see you again soon.
This restaurant is the perfect place for an intimate date or a group. The service is exceptional and they pay attention to details. The food quality is top notch and authentic!
Thank you so much for your review! We hope to have you back soon.
The quality of food and service were exceptional as usual! Il Calabrese is one of our favorites!
Food is always outstanding and love the cocktail list. The whole staff is friendly and attentive. Love going there for amazing Italian food!
Thank you, Jeffery!
Food didn’t have much flavor.
Always great and this time was no exception. Despite masked workers, everything was wonderful. Welcome back!
Thank you for dining with us! We hope to have you back soon.
Homemade pastas with nice wine collection. Elegant ambient with quality service.
This was our first post quarantine outing. I felt very safe being there. The restaurant was following every guideline and taking precautions. I thought they went above and beyond to make everything safe while still making it a very enjoyable dining experience. They were awesome!
Thank you, Susan!
With the lifting of the Shelter in Place Order we elected to dine at il Calabrese on May 2nd. While the number of diners was light, the ambience and food were outstanding. Chef Luciano Salvadore and staff made it a special evening. The food was fantastic! Southlake, West Lake, Grapevine, Trophy Club and Flower Mound - il Calabrese is a gem and we need to support it during these challenging times. Why drive 30 minutes to Dallas when we have the BEST Italian Restaurant that the Metroplex has to offer. Do yourself a favor - get out, get back to living. That can start with a great evening at il Calabresse!
Chef Salvadore, thank you for another great outing!!!
Mr. Hunter, thank you so much for your review and for coming out to dine with us Saturday. It was a pleasure to have you in and we hope to see you again soon!
Great service and good. Very nice attention to social distancing. One of our favorite spots!
Fantastic food and great service! I would definitely recommend this place to friends.
Thank you, Michael! We hope to see you again soon!
phenomenal vegetarian gluten-free pizza! Seriously the BEST pizza ever and you couldn't tell it was healthy! I added the "beyond-meat" meatballs (vegetarian meatballs) to the pizza and it was over the top amazing! My friends got other dishes and theirs were amazing as well!
We had dinner here for our 20th Wedding Anniversary. The food and wine was great, and the wait staff were excellent. They made a real effort to insure that our celebration was special.
Very good selection of food and drinks. Attention to detail by the owner and chef is a nice touch. Very conveniently located for both business as well as casual dining. The lighter fare is also very good, fresh ingredients. The bread was fresh and hot with delicious condiments.
Excellent Food! I will definitely be coming back. I would recommend to anyone
Renovations are nearly completed. Luciano Salvadore, owner and chef was able to come out and greet us. A kiss on each cheek, the true Italian way! Buona Serata.
Complimentary Focaccia is always a great starter. We shared plates of Risotto with white asparagus, so creamy and delicious, the season doesn’t last long...get it while you can. Followed by Branzino con Spinaci E Granchio and Bistecca. Delightful dinner washed down with a bottle of 2014 Gaja Promis. Finishing the evening by traditional Tiramisu. A very nice way to spend Saturday evening! Buon Appetito!
We miss Luigi but still one of our favorite restaurants
Very special Southlake restaurant. Beautifully decorated and fabulous food and service.
Had the white fish on chard. Fish was under cooked and half raw and the chard tasted bad
Had a meal at il Calabrese on a Saturday Night, with a 7 pm reservation. Arrived and were seated immediately. My wife and I each had a Caesar Salad, then she had the Taglierini Pepati Con Gamberi and I the Rigatoni Con Pollo. All was very good. We will be returning again.
The food was exquisitely flavored, perfect coming from the kitchen. Our waitress was unobtrusive, but timely and attentive. This was a very romantic, finely presented experience. Even better now than the last time we were there.
