As stated in the heading, we like Ivano's food. We've occasionally felt the wait staff could have had a slightly warmer/more helpful attitude.

They arrived barely lukewarm, flavorless, and with a pat of butter floating on... More

Comfortable atmosphere and truly top notch service! Felt like family and some of the best Italian food I've had. (Have not been to Italy PS )~

In town for a wedding, stopped in for a delicious dinner with such an awesome waitress, Pauline. I then discovered that the wedding party social that evening was also at Ivanos!! Great restaurant, really nice patio area, and fabulous staff. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great meal in a nice downtown location.

Real Italian, starting with their sour dough bread, unique selection of pasta dishes, and wonderful sweets. Their Tiramisu is amazing.

Something for everyone on the menu. The chicken saltimboca was great and their wines by the glass were awesome!

Well one lady ordered the "plain cheese tortellini and it came with ham which I get very ill with" she indicated the... More
