I'm surprised at the negative reviews. We went with a party of 8 and had great service and better food. Maybe we got lucky as the table didn't really order anything too difficult to make. 5 of us got the skirt steak and it was cooked to temperature properly for everyone. I enjoyed mine and everyone else reported the same. The apps of fried calamari and antipasto were well received. I'd come back.

Went here the other night with my wife with high hopes of a good Italian meal. Unfortunately, our hopes were let down.

To start, I got the Caesar salad which was just an unmixed whole piece of Romaine with dressing that had not much taste, along with a fried slice of Parmesan that tasted like bad grease. My wife started with an Eggplant type of appetizer which the waiter said was served at room temp, but came out melted and lukewarm like it was sitting under a hot lamp for awhile.

We both got the Chicken Parm, which I know is not the best way to judge an Italian restaurant. To be honest, we went with this because we were unimpressed with the apps and figured they couldn't screw up an easy dish like this, right?! Wrong.

Chicken Parm came out looking good, but the sauce tasted very metallic like it came out of a tin can. While the chicken itself seemed to be cooked just right and it was juicy, the sauce's taste ruined the whole dish. She got the side of Brussel Sprouts, at the waiter's recommendation, and came out with way too much oil on them which left them too greasy. My side of pasta was about the best thing of the night, sad to say. To top it all off, the waiter seemed uninterested with how we liked things and seemed to have the same attitude with other tables.

Better off going to the food court or somewhere outside of Borgata than eating here or at the other restaurants here.

They charge for birthday deserts. Excellent service / food quality otherwise.

Very disappointing. I ordered Spaghetti with Meatballs, it was served like the pasta was scooped out with an ice cream scoop with four small meatballs around it. The scoop of pasta was about 3 inches across and cost $27. My wife chuckled as it was served to me because it was so small. Her meal was some other mixed pasta, her portion was better but still small for $28. The bread was so hard you couldn't eat it, and was cold like it was just pulled out of the freezer. We complained, but were told the bread was the style the chef was going for. I stopped by WaWa for a sub on the way out since the meal was ridiculously small.

An underground domain in AC's Borgata Hotel, this classy subterranean Italian designed to resemble a wine cellar hits the spot thanks to superb cooking paired with a stellar vino list; the sprawling setting and quick, friendly staffers enhance the overall excellent experience.
