My wife would come to this place when she was growing up. And when we moved back to NY she had to go and see how it was doing. The restaurant is very large and has a nice small bar. Everyone raves about the pizza but all the food is good here. We did have a pizza and had left... More

We went to Borrelli's on the way home from a bus trip to Sagamore Hill. There were 26 people in our group and staff was friendly and efficient. The food though was just adequate. The pasta came out cold and gravy on the eggplant was not the best. The only person who seemed to be happy with her meal was... More

This place may have had good food and good service in their hay day but now the food quality is awful and the service terrible. There isn't much you can do to ruin chicken parm but they found a way.

Went there for a birthday party with 17 people. The service was good, the food not so much. The meatballs were cold. The stuffed shrimp had no taste. I asked for angel hair pasta, I was told they ran out!!! The bathroom was a whole other story, I even went up to the hostess and asked if they can clean... More

We went here for a family lunch and were very happy with both the service the food and the cleanliness. We didn't make a reservation and came as a last minute walkin. We ordered family-style it came with two types of salad. One was a house salad and one was a Caesar salad both were very good and well seasoned.... More

We were all very excited when we walked in. Plenty of parking and restaurant was decorated nicely. Service was not good, and food was worse. As a family it was unamiously agreed we would never return.

The food is ok. If you are looking for Italian food that isn't too expensive, it's not a bad place to go. It is no better or worse than chicken parm you can get at your local pizzeria.

I got the pizza and it was very good, but a small cost me $17. The beer selection was above average and the atmosphere was good. My friend got the salmon and it was a bit dry. I'd go for good Italian, but don't think it's going to be cheap.
