Buca di Beppo Louisville

 1 star(s)  (09/04/2013)
“Bed management. Not kids friendly. If you do kids birthday party never chose this restaurant, they will ruin your experience. Manager Lisa do not know her job she would ruin your experience instead of managing her stuff. Never again in this restaurant with me kids.”

Tuscany's Italian Restaurant

 3 star(s)  (05/14/2012)
“I would have rated this a 4 but there are subtle areas that are not quite there; an example, the waitresses are good, but seem unsure and not suggestive as to their offerings, the menu does not offer a variety of wheat dishes. However, the food is usually very good, though limited selections that h... ”

“We have dined in many places ( here and Europe ) and this is right there at the top. Our daughter and son-in-law invited us for our 33rd anniversary. They live in the area and know the places. We had a wonderful time. Bill Brown, Minnesota”

Tuscany's Italian Restaurant

“My first visit will most assuredly not be my last. Undeniably some of the best Italian Cuisine that I've had to date. Perfectly prepared and served. The service was top notch. I cannot say enough good things about the waiter. He was definately on his game. Exceeded all of my expectations. Men... ”

“I am so pleased to find a wonderful restaurant like Tuscany's that offers generous portions of delicious and authentic Italian food. From salads, to bread, to pasta, calzones, pizza,and desserts, I was impressed by the variety and mouth-watering menu. A splendid time was had by our party of five, an... ”

Le Gallo Rosso Bistro

“One of the best italian restaurant in Louisville. The scallops are wonderful! You must try! The service has always been great. It is like sitting in your mom's dining room! A really, really great place!”

Le Gallo Rosso Bistro

 5 star(s)  (11/04/2009)
“A wonderful dining experience! It was like being in Europe with friendly wait staff, a nice time for talking with dining guests since we never felt rushed. Time allowed for each course to be enjoyed. I had the Florentine ravioli special and my friends enjoyed the spaghetti with (huge) meatballs an... ”

“This is an easy review. Great food at great prices! ”

Le Gallo Rosso Bistro

 1 star(s)  (08/22/2009)
“The worst Italian food I have ever eaten. The atmosphere is very charming, but don't be deceived. Open your own can of Ravioli - you will be much more satisfied. The worst meal I have ever eaten in my life.”

Le Gallo Rosso Bistro

 5 star(s)  (07/31/2009)
“Every item tried on their menu, after multiple visits, is outstanding. Value is superb. Betty's Lasagna can feed 3 normal appetites and leftovers are zealously guarded when they come home. For those that love desserts, the Italian Cream Cake is out of this world. We've known Chef Annette 7 years and... ”

Frascelli's Pizza and Pub

 5 star(s)  (07/19/2009)
“One of our favorites - Frascelli's is kid-friendly and has excellent pizza for a good price. We especially like to watch karaoke night - a nice laid back, family atmosphere that's entertaining for the whole family.”

Le Gallo Rosso Bistro

 2 star(s)  (07/11/2009)
“This restaurant has turned into one of the most disappointing places in town. While they have great food, their customer service leaves quite a bit to be desired. First, they still have such limited space that even after expanding they put customers in rooms with no air conditioning. The wait staff ... ”

“SERVICE WAS SLOW BUT THE FOOD WAS GREAT HUGE PORTIONS. MY DATE AND I SPLIT A DINNER AND STILL LEFT OVERS.WHEN YOU GO DON'T BE IN A HURRY GIVE YOUR SELF ATLEAST 2 HOURS.”

Tuscany's Italian Restaurant

 4 star(s)  (05/16/2009)
“Just tried the new location on Dixie. They've done a great job fixing up the old Bearno's location. I wont' say it was the best the Chicken Parmesan I've ever had, but it is the best in recent memory. They have a huge menu with about everything Italian you could want, including pizza and calzones. M... ”

“Came here for dinner with our Louisville family. Was very impressed. Great Ravioli. Would go back anytime we're in town.”

Le Gallo Rosso Bistro

 5 star(s)  (04/12/2009)
“I agree with all the reviews, on this webpage, that Le Gallo Rosso has some of the best Italian food that I've experience here in Louisville. The service was, ehh, a little desirable than expected but overall a great place for Italian food. Finally, to me, there is nothing better than a glass of red... ”

Romano's Macaroni Grill

 2 star(s)  (04/07/2009)
“We have now stopped going to this restaurant because of the poor food quaility and terrible service. It used to be one of our favorite Italian restaurants................we will never go there again because of repeated bad experiences.”

Tuscany's Italian Restaurant

 2 star(s)  (03/03/2009)
“The bread was very cold and the desert we ordered they said they didn't have even though still on menu. One waitress waiting on every single table by herself while the manager helped out occasionally by taking bread to the diners. Food is good except cold bread-asked manager for more bread never got... ”
