The food is fresh and excellent, and presented wonderfully. Truly, we have never had a bad meal here. Plus, nice cocktails, a decent wine list, and even good beer on tap.
Inside or out the atmosphere is a great compliment to the good food and great service.

The food was decent but it's does not seem to be over the top amazing.

The Seafood Fra Diavolo was the highlight of the evening, and the calamari was quite tasty in the dish. The rest of the dishes were ok (we ordered beef carpaccio, Prosciutto arugula and gnocchi al tartufo). While the waitress and server staffs were quite polite, we were disappointed we waited over 20 minutes to get our wine as the restaurant was not busy.

Have been regular diners and we are disappointed in the downward spiral of the restaurant. Service was slow and inattentive. Manager broke down tables and removed tables and chairs with a lot of noise. One diner had a dog that barked at each arrival.
Food was OK at best.

Ate out back in the tent at a table for 2. Food was awesome & service was great. Food was prepared exactly as we asked for it to be & waiter was very attentive!
Metal chair not so comfortable & very crooked/sloped sidewalk makes it a bit hard to get in if you’re handicapped, but overall an excellent restaurant that I I would highly recommend!

Went for Mother’s Day and they did a special Mother’s Day menu that I didn’t know about but I think it was a pretty good deal. The food was great and the service was great as well. Will definitely be back.

I always love Calogero’s. The food is excellent, all the time! I’ve gotten catering from them before also, and usually quality suffers a little with large quantities, but not here. They have a massive outdoor tent with tables spaced apart nicely and heaters. Its beautifully decorated. We felt very comfortable eating here. The workers are very attentive and do a great job. I highly recommend for dining and catering!

The food and atmosphere was great. The only thing that bothered me - two people in my party substituted one type of pasta with another and they didn’t tell us there’s an up charge. They listed all the options so it was unclear. Not right in my opinion.

The baked clams were very pedestrian. The scallops were sandy. I felt like I was chewing grit and I sent it back. The salmon was very good.

We had a 7:30 reservation. We did not get seated until 8;00. With the Covid restrictions, there was no where to wait and we couldn’t get a drink to pass the time. When we were finally seated, we complained about the 30 minute wait. We were told that they were busy and did not apologize. With social distancing, management should figure out a waiting area if they cannot honor their reservation in a timely manner.

Enjoyable dinner for 6 in their outdoor tent — delicious food and drinks. Unfortunately, a screaming child, not attended to by his parents, ruined the experience. We couldn’t wait to leave.

I always go in thinking I know what to order until I see the specials menu. Sometimes it’s difficult to decide but never disappointed. Randy was our server and was excellent as was the food. I highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to my next visit.

The Food is always great. We decided to get dessert this time though and we were a little disappointed. The apple crumble came out ice cold with no whipped cream or ice cream and the cappuccino was very bitter. The main course was delicious though.
