Our first time at Saranellos for brunch, delicious!!! Staff amazing and very helpful, but I have to say I was surprised they wore jeans. We always go out for Easter Brunch our range is $40-$50 per person.. Saranellos was I believe $40 and our favorite we will be back for Easter and we just said let's go for another Brunch... More

Service was negligent. What happened to after your food is served returning to ask if it's okay? Second time I've eaten here. Same waitstaff. Same poor service. Saw others get their salad, main course, desert & coffee while we waited for our main course. Finally asked the manager for the check. Asked if there was something to send home, "to... More

The food at Saranello's was beyond phenomenal. It was authentic Italian like your Nonna made when you were a kid. We had the gnocchi, lasagna, and chicken piccata. The prices were very reasonable and the service was great, too. Three of us ate and each had wine for $100. Go and enjoy!

Saranello's accommodated a group of dancers that were attending a competition last weekend, and all of their moms, they made us feel like VIP's! The food is out of this world good, Matt made sure our girls were happy and had exactly what they ordered (we ordered for them prior to them sitting down), and I can see why the... More

Well. It was the dinner that never ended. Had reservations at 6:30 and didn't leave until 9:30. Not because we wanted to stay that long but because we couldn't get anyone to clear our dishes, give us drink orders, take our order. It was ridiculous and I even had to ask 3 waiters for silverware and then one of my... More

My wife and I tried Saranello's for the first time this past week and were impressed with the food there. The restaurant is really designed for pairs of eaters, but the prices and portion size. The excellent Chicken Parmesan that I ordered could have easily been split between two people and that made the price a little easier to stomach.... More

We waited over an hour when they told us 45 min. They forgot our salads told us they would bring them during dinner instead. They never came. Food was so over cooked. Pasta was mush and the chicken was so salty it was hard to eat. This is the first time I have written a review. I am not one... More

I've eaten about 4 times at Saranello's, including last week with my wife. Great pasta and veal dishes. I had chicken vesuvio. No the greatest chicken vesuvio, but huge portion and had to take half home.

This spot does live up to the standard LEY quality of decor and service (although the waiter didn't know what a Negroni was). The food is another matter. This is kind of an upscale Olive Garden. By that I mean, it's Italian but only by an American definition. The menu is ok with all the standard fare but something is... More

The bar brought out the wrong food. Corrected it, then kept both on my bill. I caught it and they corrected it. The next day I came I for the Express Lunch about 40 minutes before my meeting. I got my cup of soup in 10 minutes, but my salad never came. I never saw my waitress again. I should... More
