After visiting Valley View farms with my best friend and her family every year around Christmas, we head over to Kenilworth Mall to look at the train garden and get pizza from Italian Gardens. The pizza is always delicious but definitely overpriced. The Caesar dressing on their salad is one of my favorites and the mozzarella sticks we tried this... More

I have been eating here since I was a kid and it has been going down hill for some time, but I chalked it up to an off night historically, no longer, the pizza used to be the best and now it is just awful and undercooked and the fries for my kids were old and cold and the pasta... More

The prices here are highly inflated. On one visit the pizza was amazing ny style pizza. The next visit the pie was overly greasy. Last visit the dough was so thin that it never crisped up and was soggy and salty. There are delivery options much better and cheaper.

I ordered a small pizza and salad (dressing on side) w/ fresh turkey sandwich to go...the pizza was put in upside down!!.. the salad dressing was open and went everywhere, and the sammy had melted cheese and bacon on...

Wanted a couple of slices of pizza for lunch while we visited the mall. Italian Gardens has spent the money on an area at the front of the restaurant to display and purchase pizza. Unfortunately, while the pies look pretty good on display, the restaurant does have an effective way to reheat the product to an appetizing temperature. Apparently they... More

Tried and true Italian...pizza, ravioli, eggplant parm plus other favorites. Always busy but I've never had to wait. Fun place if you like the hustle-bustle of a mall eatery.

I approached intrigued by the overused adjective "Italian". It was about to close, and kindly warned me. I had time to read the blackboard and very detailed menu and to look at what was on display. It was enough. In fact, what I feared It was clear: the kitchen uses only Italian names but it isn't Italian, the description of... More

I had the salad special, harvest salad. Mixed greens, apple slices, Craisins, gorganzola cheese, glazed walnuts, and chicken breast with an apple vinaigrette dressing. Very tasty. I asked if I could get bread or roll. They brought me 2 fresh baked warm dinner rolls with seasoned olive oil dip. My husband had a tuna salad sandwich with a cole slaw... More

If rated solely on the pizza, Italian Gardens would get a higher rating, but the other food options aren't great. The location in Kenilworth Mall is a plus, and it is great for familes with young children - whether it's due to the train show and Santa at Christmastime or the 2-story fountain during the summer. The service is average,... More

This is a good lunch place for pizza , salad, and many other items. Our server Mallay did a wonderful job explaining the options, and was very friendly. She tried to accept our coupons for 1/2 off, but manager declined. Suggest that next time this work for the luncheon specials ; good customer appreciation.
