Had a terrible experience at ITALIA tonight! Ordered linguini and clams, as soon as I went to take a bite, I noticed a funky smell - took one bite,,and it tasted like burnt plastic! I told the waitress....she asked if I wanted anything else (at that point I had already lost my appetite!). Best of all, the bill comes - they took off the pasta and charged me $5.50 for the tiny little house salad that comes complimentary with all meals! Priceless! It costs us $65 for an order of ravioli, a small pizza, my midget salad and some fried calamari. Worst customer service ever! Needless to say, I am NEVER going back!
Tonight I decided to go with some girlfriends to Italia and take advantage of a 20% off coupon. We were pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious authentic Italian fare and the portions were large. The service was friendly, although it took a while before our order was taken. However, the dishes came withing a reasonable amount of time and were served piping hot. The only disappointment was the salad, which was inconsistent. Two salads were mostly iceberg lettuce while the third had nice green pieces of romaine mixed in. I would definitely eat there again, even without a 20% off coupon, which was very generous, and had no restrictions on what day it could be used.
I travel to Norwalk on business. At the Marriott hotel I picked up a menu for this restaurant for delivery. I ordered that night, the food was disgusting. I thought maybe it was just a fluke, and thought I would give them one more shot. I ordered again the next night... disgusting again. This is coming for someone without discriminating taste! Some restaurants do eat-in well, and carry-out/delivery poorly. This may be the case for Italia. I would give it a lower score, however I appreciated the friendliness of the phone service and the delivery people.
My Husband and I have been eating at Italia for over 6 years.. they have great food, quick attentive service, and no matter what you get it is good. Can't go wrong.. don't have to dress up - very Mom and Pop old fashioned pizza parlor style.. Enjoy.. Italia Fan.
