I've been eating here for years. The level of service has never changed, always excellent. Wait staff and managers are always polite and attentive. Chef even comes out to say hi and asks about your food. I appreciate having the same outstanding level of service every time I come. Food is very tasty and never disappoints. Atmosphere is pleasant and relaxing. Bathrooms have always been clean.

Wow. I am blown away with the flavors and textures true of the most authentic Italian food I have experienced stateside. Strong on the calabrian pepper flavors, every detail of each dish was perfect. Our wonderful server Olen happily catered to our gluten free and vegan requests, checking with the chef directly to ensure that they were able to custom create a vegan Marsala dish. The minestrone soup was warming with authentic Italian flavors. And the vegan, gluten free pizza was probably the most pleasantly surprising of all, with a deliciously perfect medley of flavors and textures and an incredible vegan Italian sausage. The wine selection is perfectly on point, boasting an excellent list of old world wines.

I had friends who took me here for my Birthday and let's just say I wish I could eat here at least once a week. That way I would be sure to have the best Italian food weekly! Their Lasagna was the best Lasagna I have EVER had. It literally melted in my mouth! The bread and the dipping sauces they brought out while waiting for our food was excellent as well. Not to heavy, but just enough pop of flavor to give you a tease of whats to come. They brought out bread pudding for the Birthday surprise and I normally don't like bread pudding, but this was out of this world. It was served hot and melted in your mouth too. So impressed with this place. Excellent place to go for date night, to celebrate your Birthday or just to go grab a drink at the bar!

I wish I could give Calabrese 4.5 stars, but as it's not an option a round-up is perfectly okay. The only downside to Calabrese is the noise level. The acoustics of the restaurants simply do not lend themselves to ease of conversation without "projecting" across the table. Now, down to the plethora of positives. First, reservations are a breeze either via calling the front desk or via OpenTable. We were actually running a touch late due to some construction and called the front desk who were quite friendly and said "no problem." Upon being seated, the wait staff were all very accommodating. Cocktails were expertly made, water glasses filled constantly, and food piping hot. Couple that with incredible and knowledgeable service and I highly doubt one could have a bad experience. The icing on the cake was the follow-up call we received the day after our dining experience, simply to inquire how our partied enjoyed our meal and time at Calabrese. This is rare in the culinary world these days and is typically reserved for a venue 3x to 4x the price point. We will assuredly be making Calabrese our go-to Italian restaurant in the area.

Ok, I don't give 5 Stars easily, but this place deserves it. Everyone is engaged in great customer service and giving you a night of great food and ambience. I love to see Management engaged with their staff & patrons - says a lot about their work ethic. Lovely place with great charm and good food. They even followed up the next day w/ a phone call to ensure everything was great. That's how you separate yourself from the pack! Great job, Calabrese Team. We will be back!
