The place was not crowded. The wait was fairly long to get our food. My wife got a Stromboli and there was a wad of hair baked in the cheese. They did replace but we were so disgusted that we couldn't finish.

Our first visit to Smitty's Italian Steakhouse was very good. Four people ordering four different entrees and all rating it as very good. The building dates to 1893 and the interior retains a times gone by feel. Good food, comfortable surrounding and a pleasant staff...More

Stop by for lunch and enjoyed the chicken Florentine soup and a caprese salad. Ended with a lemon mascarpone cake that melted in your mouth. Tried a trio of after dinner liquors. At $10 for the trio! Great food, atmosphere and service
