The food was fantastic; great vodka sauce! They were very accommodating and let us order a beet salad even though it wasn’t on the Mother’s Day-exclusive menu. They did charge us for it though, and not a substitution surcharge, full price. Given that I didn’t even order a salad that was included in the prefix menu, and two of us didn’t get dessert, I think they could’ve just subbed one salad for another. But the service was good, as always, and our mom loved it! (Beet salad is her fave.)

We had a table of three for a Mother’s Day special menu. The food was interesting and good. The service was very attentive. The noise level was low so we could talk easily. It was an enjoyable meal. I would return.

We were in the area for an event at the stadium. We decided to eat prior to the event not to deal with lines. A great choice...food was hot, fresh, tasty and overall fantastic.

I had nothing but a great experience at Al Di La. Food was extremely tasty (and I am quite the foody). The waitress and hostess were very sweet and accommodating. Our waitress had food suggestions that were right on point. I love it when the wait staff has first hand knowledge of the food!!. The restaurant is huge, with private rooms for parties. It was tastefully decorated for St. Patrick"s Day when I went. Best salmon stuffed with shrimp that I ever had. So much flavor!. The rigatoni in vodka sauce was also amazing. Not cheap, but pretty much up to par with most restaurants (my salmon was about 22 dollars??). Hats off to the chef. Will definitely be coming back.

Waited two hours for food. Two dishes came out different than what was ordered. Two dishes came out with raw food. Service was horrible. Asked three different people for a basket of bread after an hour finally got it.

I have dined there years ago and it was pretty good. This time it was excellent. My salmon stuffed with crab meat was very fresh and tasty. My dinner partner had chicken francaise and was very satisfied.
The tirmisu for desert was the best we’ve had by far....very enjoyable all around.

We waited over 2 hours to get our food after being seated. The waiter said they made our food and gave it to someone else that ordered takeout. Very disappointed and we had to order our food to go.

Took waitress forever to come to us and bring our drinks and take our order. Then took order of very large party before us and we were there first and only 4. Waited one hour 15 min for our dinner. She never came back to ask us how meals were and I isn’t care for mine at all. Everyone else’s meal was mediocre at best. Then a very drunk patron at the bar began screaming and yelling at each table and frightened my children. Husband asked for check and took them awhile. They didn’t even comp anything off the bill. Worst dining experience ever.

There was not enough staff on hand to handle the room. Service was very slow and we were very disappointed as we had heard good things about the place. Show was very good which made up for part of our i=night

The Entertainment was great. The food and service were both terrible. I never write bad reviews but in this case I feel that I’m doing the restaurant and future patrons a favor. Every table around us sent back a least 2 entrees and all of our meals arrived at different times. After reading many bad reviews we just ordered pasta, which arrived barely cooked, not al Dente and barely had any sauce on it. The Rice Balls and garlic bread were good. No one bused the tables between courses and our barely touched entrees sat piled up on our table for over an hour. Look at you restaurant objectively, and change things for the better. It the entertainer wasn’t there, you would have been empty on a Saturday night.

Great stuffed scallops a paella valenciana loaded with seafood, sausages and chicken. Might want to consider putting less oil.

The food a fantastic. The portions sized are very generous. The service is excellent. The prices are reasonable. The owner visit each table and is willing to make you something off the menu if they have the ingredients. All the food is made as it is order. I highly recommend it over all the other Italian restaurants in the area. It is grest for small or big groups and there is a party room. Would definitely go back.

First time here and would definitely go back! We loved the decor of the place, friendly wait staff, the chef came out of the kitchen to greet the tables. Lots of great specials as well as many selections worth trying from the regular menu. The sangria was really good too.

Worst food I ever had the price astronomical for buffet.
$257.00 for a buffet that when we went back to was closed and all cleaned up so no dessert no coffee. $40 for tip they added to the bill and they didn’t even service us. Do not recommend this restaurant to anybody will never go back.

Marginal. Probably due to end of day on Mother’s Day. Wait staff seemed warn out.

We went there for Mother’s Day. 5 of us. We had no idea that a) it would be a “brunch buffet” and not their regular menu, b) that almost everything IN the buffet would be either too cold, too dry, or too gross and c) that they would have the absolute STEEL set of balls to charge $36 per person for the honor of eating nothing they served. We spent over $200, ate practically nothing, and on top of it all got our drink spilled by a 17-year-old who was given this shift within his first week of working. Awful. Awful. Awful.
