The BLT Bruschetta came with frozen solid tomatoes

Our server recommended the Blt bruschetta something that we have never had before it was a nice surprise, bread was light and it was like having a little salad. Pastas were superb, never been here before and we will definitely return will our kids.

The location is excellent. Right off of the QEW and in the same complex at the movie theatre. The service is always good and the food is also always good. Pizza is excellent. Would definitely recommend.

Food

Dined on December 31, 2015

We have been come to the restaurant for years. In fact nearly every New Year's Eve I can remember Everything is great but the quality of the food has declined over the years Once upon a time, you were greeted with a fantastic garlic bread, but this changed years ago The Caesar salads are nothing like they use to be, I love garlic but they are that good anymore The pasta was also bland. The restaurant and staff are great but you really need to go back to how you used to be Thx

Ok but not great

Dined on December 30, 2015

Atmosphere was fine, service good but food was just ok. Had Chicken Parmesan. Chicken was over cooked, pasta side was dry as if was sitting on a warming table for a while. Tilapia dish was good. $48 couples deal was good value as there were lots of menu choices for the deal.

Just average

Dined on December 29, 2015

They had no kids menu when we arrived , they seemed surprised by this , although there was a huge table of kids right near us when we were seated. We waited 30 minutes and still no kids menu , told 2 people , finally an experienced server came over and gave us a verbal description of the menu , all we needed , at the same time they finally brought the kids menu over and told us they had to print it out. We ordered apps, they were out if blt buscetta , ok . Then we ordered off the kids menu for our youngest son, they did not have any penne pasta either! We were seated at the washroom and server station , although the place was half full, it was an ice storm, so noisy , not really impressed , food we did get was ok, so just average...

Food and service are consistently good.

Dined on December 2, 2015

The food and service are consistently good. The flatbreads and caesar salads are excellent. Service was excellent. When we were there the server we had was in training so our expectations weren't very high but he turned out to be excellent. The training they give there servers is obviously very good. The head server was always there to help and oversee. Would definitely recommend.

Our yearly dinner at Alice Fazooli's.

Dined on November 30, 2015

For a chain restaurant it is fine, we all enjoyed our meals. SirCorp should show this place some tlc as the brand is tired. Nothing 'pops' on the menu, there should be a few signature dishes. Very good service.

Needs to be revitalized

Dined on November 8, 2015

It has to be known that I'm faculty at the School of Hospitality, Food and Tourism at the University of Guelph so I'm come at any review with this background in mind. It is time that SirCorp paid more attention to Alice Fazooli's. The menu has not changed in a long time and the food has become so so. My Chicken Fettuccine was unremarkable and my wife's salad (so she told me later) was limp and had brown lettuce in it. Others in our party had the Salmon and said it was excellent but another ordered a pasta dish and asked "hold the cheese" but nevertheless it came sprinkled with cheese. The service (Melissa) was excellent so no complaints in this regard and we love the ambiance. Two days later we ate at Jack Astors at Dundas and the 403 and the food was excellent. The salads were outstanding. Hope this helps! Geoff Smith, University of Guelph. 289-725-9771 (direct)

Good food, questionable kitchen planning.

vip
Dined on September 27, 2015

We attended a Sunday afternoon (2 pm) Lunch. We were seated immediately. Not very busy at that time. Waitress was very efficient and friendly. We ordered an antipasto platter and a medium pizza to share. Both were very good. Then our dining experience slid downhill! The cheesecake we wanted was not ready yet, it was still setting! and one other dessert was not available. The waitress apologized profusely, mentioning that she had told the kitchen staff this was not acceptable. Needless to say, we had our coffee, paid our bill and left. We were quite disappointed with what had happened. Admittedly this is not a big deal, but not good planning on their part.

Was Great!

Dined on September 22, 2015

We had not been to an Alice Fazooli's for quite some time. Our neighbourhood one at Square One in Mississauga was changed to a "Scaddabush". We went on a Tuesday night, (they had a special... check it out... really good value), so it was quiet. http://alicefazoolis.ca/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/AFR157044_Alice_Daily_Specials.pdf The food was well prepared, and our server was very informed and pleasant. We will go again!

Kitchen Dropped the Ball!

Dined on September 19, 2015

Ordered our app and entre' and were told the app "will be out pretty quick". Well, it was not so quick, after 15 minutes it arrived. Unfortunately, the entre's arrived about 30 seconds after the app. Told the waiter "but we just got our app" and he said "oh, sorry". Sorry doesn't cut it! When out waitress arrived and asked how things were, her response was much the same. Very disappointing.

food ok - service - not so good

Dined on August 23, 2015

food was good - service was very slow for a not so busy restaurant night - example - ordered beer on two occasions both were very slow to come out - almost said i don't want the second one by the time arrived. adult dinners were served a long time after the kids meals - they were long done before adults got their dinner empty plates were slow to be removed when they were finished. parmesan cheese was brought by 5 minutes after the pasta was served. must be understaffed that night or something I hope

From the attitude at the door to the undercooked fish, this is a place you want to skip. The half-hearted attempt by the manager to make things right was not enough to convince me to ever return to this place. Don't waste your time.

Had an amazing dinner!

Dined on May 30, 2015

We primarily chose this place because it was halfway between myself and my friends house, and we had never been here before. There were 4 of us, and all of our meals were fantastic. Our appetizer arrived quickly and was hot and delicious (Spinach & artichoke dip!)! Our waitress was great, she was very friendly and only seemed to materialize when we needed her, otherwise she wasn't bothering us. We actually stayed until almost midnight, we had been catching up and chatting and had not realized they had pretty much closed down the bar and the rest of the restaurant and most of the staff had left! We felt so bad that we had stayed that long, but no one even approached us to tell us to get lost. All in all, it was fantastic food, great atmosphere, and wonderful staff. Would definitely come here again!

Great Appetizers!

Dined on May 29, 2015

The Bruschetta and Spinach Dip was very good. The pizza and child's ravioli was okay. The service was friendly and we received our orders in a timely manner. However, our server was not as attentive as we'd hope. She was very friendly and pleasant but didn't check to see if we needed refills for our drinks and we waited longer than we should for her to bring the bill. Otherwise, it was fine. I would recommend the appetizers.

Nice dinner with a friend, great service

Dined on May 22, 2015

We had great service, very friendly. My friend and I shared the chicken and beet salad as an appetizer - it was delicious. We both had the butternut squash ravioli, which I had last time and loved. It's rich and creamy and very tasty. I'm not overly impressed with the dessert menu, which is my favourite part of the meal. We ended up sharing the apple pie-type dish which was good, but I prefer a molten chocolate cake, creme brulee etc... Overall great dinner and would recommend.

Mid-Week Lunch

Dined on February 20, 2015

I met a girlfriend there for lunch on a weekday. The restaurant was very busy. We were seated next to a very large group of people. It elevated the noise level and made it harder for the wait staff to our table and tables near us. We both enjoyed main salads from the menu. They were tasty and not over-dressed.

Food and service was great!!

Dined on February 15, 2015

The overall experience was great. The service was great as the wait staff worked together. Ginelle our service was awesome. When food was ready, any available server would deliver it to the table only to be immediately followed up by Ginelle to inquiry whether we needed anything. The taste, portions and quality of the food was really good. The Chianti 8 oz steak was perfect and the chicken risotto was one of the best I've tried. The bread was fresh and hot out of the oven. We will be back.

Disappointing

Dined on February 8, 2015

Party of 3 - only one of us was satisfied with our meal. The mediterranean pizza was the only good food. I was looking forward to having the red snapper, but it was overdone, and very fishy tasting. The other person had a salad which was supposed to include walnuts, but had to ask the waiter for the walnuts. She then had to wait for someone to access the "locked up" walnuts before she got it. When there are so many wonderful restaurants to choose from in our city, I will not choose this one again.

Very disappointed that I made my reservation a week in advance indicated "booth seating preferred" and upon arrival we were seated at a square table in the middle of aisle and was told all booth were taken. Not very kid friendly, when seated a kids menu and crayons for colouring was not provided. Drinks for kids should also have lids like provided at jack astors.

Good food done to our liking

Dined on January 18, 2015

My wife is on a strict diet for health reasons and her request for grilled fish and beans with no sauces other than butter was easily accomplished. The food arrived hot and well presented. The atmosphere in the restaurant suits us as it is spacious, we can still hear ourselves talk and yet there is a nice background of activity. We also find the prices are reasonable.
