We've been to Italian Connection many times and really love the hospitality of the owner & chef. The food is plain, good Italian food. Most pastas are home-made as are the sauces. Eggplant parmesan is fabulous when they have it. Problem is that sometimes the service is great, and sometimes it's not. We took friends there once, and the servers were enamored with friends at a nearby table, and we got almost no service at all. other times we feel like treasured customers. Good food. Spotty service

Quirky decor with good food. Pictures all over, and empty wine bottles with patrons' inscriptions commemorating notable events in the restaurant, like engagements. Spinach and seafood ravioli, which was more like spinach ravioli with seafood in the brandy cream sauce, was good.

This is definitely a romantic place. The food was very well made. It isn't that overly thick fluffy fake Italian food a lot of place have these days. Traditional food is always the best! As far as atmosphere- what an experience. Chef came to greet us after the meal and the service was extraordinary. Man I could go on about this place for hours but just go there, it's sweet! -Abhishek Reddy, fun lover

What a find! The homemade pasta was fantastic. The alfredo sauce and red sauces are not too be missed. The atmosphere is a hoot with all the pictures on the wall. The gelato is home made creamy goodness with creative flavors. We raved to the waitress and she introduced us to the chef who has an obvious love and pride in his work. People say the salad is lacking, but I enjoyed the dressing. It was different, not sweet.
