Well prepared food, spacious layout, good for groups with separate dining areas. If you like Italian food, you will not be disappointed.

Excellent Italian food served in a nice atmosphere with great service. We were in a hurry to get to the theater and they were very accommodating. My appetizer was so delicious can't wait to go back and get a proper dinner. the waiter told us it can be a wait sometimes but judging from the number of people there, no... More

I write as a British person who is familiar with US menus and the lack of vegetables provided. I ate at La Stanza the evening I was going to attend the Lemon Bay Theater along the road so not only used the early bird menu but had 10% off as well. The chicken marsala was wonderful, with croquette potato and... More

Attended a memorial service dinner.The service was much faster than expexted considering that there over 50 people who attended. Food was very good. Wait staff was not as well versed on menu but it may be because the waiter was new. I was very satisfied. Good ambience.

The only problem with this restaurant is that they are not open on Mondays, but I think that is going to change. If not for that, I would probably be there every day. And, now that I read here in the reviews that they have Sunday brunch, I will probably be there twice on Sunday and then save the leftovers... More

Went there last night. I was the blind leading the blind. We had a group of about 28 people. They could not handle this group. I think they didn't have enough people in the kitchen. Our meal took way too long to get. Four of us didn't get our meal. The servers were cleaning up the tables while people didn't... More

In general our dinning experience was mixed. Our waitress provided very good service and we enjoyed our drinks prior to dining. I had a great martini. The menu was very good and had lots of interesting choices. However after ordering we were not served dinner for for about an hour which I think takes the edge off of ones appetite.... More

First time there. Was easy to find and had plenty of parking. Restaurant was clean and set with linen tablecloths and water glasses, nice surprise . Our server recommended veal parmesan and my wife had the amazing parmesan crusted chicken in a garlic white creamy sauce . Our meal was perfect. Fresh bread and salad also. Server was attentive and... More

I'll start by saying the service was friendly and attentive, and salad was fresh (although a $1.50 up charge for blue cheese crumbles was a surprise), and the bread was warm and toasty. The buffet entrees were...well, buffet entrees. They were provided in uncovered warming trays with no sneeze guard, and all had varying degrees of saltiness; generally, too much.... More
