What a great find! My wife and I were heading to Willowbrook for a family Sunday brunch with our 15-month old twin girls, but the mall was absolutely loaded, so we kept driving west out Route 46. My wife said somebody in a Facebook group told her about this place, Cucina Calandra, indicating that it was kid-friendly. Everything about the... More

The pasta is good. The presentation was adequate. The potatoes as an appetizer were a poor excuse for Texas steak fries.

We got a Groupon and my husband took me and another couple. I didn't mind walking through the hotel lobby- in fact, we stopped for a drink at the bar while we waited. Someone was playing piano, it was nice. The decor is to die for. the noise level was nothing to bother about. There were people here dressed up... More

Not our first visit and certainly not our last. The service is excellent, the food even better. Nice menu selection. Good value as well. We had an antipasto for two which was generous. Great bread served. My chicken Tierra was great and it was served piping hot. Nice surroundings. Nothing to criticize and when you leave you can take a... More

I had 2 meals in this restaurant located within Best Western on US 46. First time I had the snapper and the scallops with vegetables risotto the second time. Both entrees were very tasty but the quantity was to much. when you re on the business trip, this goes to waste which is a pity. I recommend less food and... More

We arrived late and this was so convenient since it was attached to the hotel. This was surprisingly good and a nice place. We have experienced several attached restaurants that weren't so great but this could have been a stand-alone restaurant. They had authentic Italian menu items as well as some additional items you could order if you asked such... More

This restaurant is attached to the Best Western. Instead of trying to find a local restaurant for dinner, we at here. The food was very good, the service was also good. They have a very nice outdoor patio where they do have some outdoor dining space available. It was reasonably priced Italian style food.

Met a friend here for dinner and were seated in the outdoor section. They just renovated this restaurant and the outside looks lovely but don't eat outside. At first it was lovely with a light breeze but then we were attacked by hundreds (no exaggeration) of tiny black bugs. They were all over our food and you couldn't swat them... More

After a stressful day at work my hubby invited me for dinner and we met at Cucina Calandra. My husband ordered pasta with salmon and I had a pork chop....OMG DELICIOUS!!!! We haven't had a dinner so tasty and well done for a long time. Highly recommend this place.
