We have always wanted to try the pizza at Made in Italy restaurant but it has always been way too busy to get in. We finally got to try it and it was very good. The pizza was delicious and the eggplant parm was good but would have to agree with the other review too much cheese and barely any... More

The spinach salad was very good, but the eggplant parmigiana had too much cheese and not enough eggplant. However, the flavor was excellent. Staff is always friendly and knowledgeable. We love the option of al fresco dining. The bar is always fun and lively.

The restaurant is very nice and has a show kitchen with a beautiful brick oven pizza. The food display with a selection of smoked Italian meat and cheeses look very attractive and very inviting. We were very disappointed with the size of the pizza. The crust was good but the pizza was luke warm and the toppings were very small.... More

Everything here is incredible, but indulge yourself in a special of the day. The ingredients are always fresh and the bread cooked on site, in the wood burning oven, is out of this world!

This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend. We were seated promptly even though the place was busy. The service was fantastic. We wanted to talk and the service was perfect; not overly attentive. Unfortunately the food was only average. We had gnocchi and pasta with meat sauce. The sauce was not very good. Everything considered, it was a... More

Plan your visit accordingly and this can be a very pleasant experience. Overlook the fact that it is incredibly popular on weekends and it could lead to disappointment due to understaffing and, if indoors in the bar area, close to deafening noise. Great for texting, not so for conversation. If you can snag a sidewalk table you'll be able to... More

Busy,crowded with bad food. There was a 30-40 min wait for a table so we decided to order a pizza and salad to eat in our hotel. Pizza small with the slightest amount of sauce,no cheese and salad was some field greens with a thin slice of some kind of cheese. We've had pizza all over the USA and Europe.... More

If you want a vibrant, loud and bustling evening then this is the place for you. The venue is very popular because of this but there are a few downsides. The staff are great at looking really busy but you never feel anyone really knows what is going on. Ordering a drink at the bar whilst waiting for a table... More
