This restaurant has become a favorite of ours. Despite only 3-4 visits per year, the waitstaff recognizes us by name and even remembers our favorite wine! The food is fresh (and you will wait a little longer than at the Italian chains for it to be served) and is served in several courses at dinner time. The atmosphere is very casual, but the furnishings are showing their age, so don't expect ""elegant."" Portion sizes are pretty big. The quality of the food is excellent; I've never had a bad experience with anything I've ordered.\r
Don't visit the restaurant at dinner time if you are in a big hurry as much of the food is cooked to order (even the coffee is made fresh when ordered!). If you want a quiet place without many distractions to enjoy good food, good service and good conversation with your spouse and/or good friends, the Italian Garden won't disappoint!
Pros: Great food, great service and quiet!
Cons: Furnishings are showing their age
