I ate here with friends and while we liked the food (especially the delicious sausage tortellini) the waitress committed the cardinal sin of making a mistake and blaming the customer. My friend ordered the fried fish. The waitress said, "the fish" in confirmation. They brought...More

Enjoyed Malara's with our Tastemasters group tonight. Service is homey and very prompt, with really decent Italian goodies. Pasta is homemade, the sauce is a rich and red (other choices available), with excellent sausage and meatballs. Everyone seemed to enjoy their picks. Lots of food....More

Nothing says class like Carlo Rossi by the glass. Service was that of a poorly run diner *. Wine was served in glasses that were far too small for the portion. Food was decent ***

Family run Italian restaurant, that truly cares about customers. Food is amazing, and huge portions. They offer 1/2 portions which is still alot. Homemade ravioli, pasta, and sauce. The menu choices are plentiful and even the most picky eater will fall in love with their...More

I have been here several times, and the food is great. A little on the expensive side, but well worth a visit every once in awhile. You won't be sorry you ate there.
