The food is superb!!! I canât say enough good things about this place. I love the pasta Fagioli, the lobster ravioli is to die for. My basic husband loves the Alfredo fettuccini. The canyon Road wine by the bottle is worth it for sharing. And the bread is so addictive youâll eat it all. Great for family and friends

It was slow getting our order taken once we were seated but good consistent customer service happened after this. The kitchen screwed up my wife's pasta topping order but our waiter cheerfully looked after this problem here. Food was good and refills of bread, salad and water. They had enough staff on to deal with the customers eating but were constantly dealing with others besides ourselves. Our waiter was friendly and made small talk when we were paying our bill. I find when problems do happen at the Olive Garden, staff go out of their way to deal with such situations!

I was asked by my son not only what and where I felt like eating for Father's Day dinner we would celebrate on Sat. instead of fighting with the crowds on Sunday and I told him the original Palace Pizza as their consistency with their product has not only been extremely good, but consistent... Actually, as far as the family is concerned, the original Palace Pizza (several were sold off by the Owner, but still carry the Palace Pizza name), is the BEST pizza in the area now. Although the dining area to this location is relatively small, we waited possibly 12-15 min. for a table to clear and we were seated and immediately ordered. Our Server was very attentive and despite the dining room being capacity, attuned to us throughout never letting our beverages fully empty before giving us fresh refills.. The pizza was phenomenal...we ordered extra cheese, pepperoni and mushroom and the "pie" was plentiful with pepperoni and mushroom...'Something you rarely see these days, but always served the same way here.

Midweek lunch with friends, seated quickly minutes before noon. We all enjoyed the Endless Soup & Salad, which was kept up very quickly by our server. All selected the Chicken Gnoche soup, which arrived pot-hot, and very rich. Loads of chicken too, Gnoche al dente. Salads fresh, bread sticks oven fresh. Quick Lunch, all well fed, well done!

The rolls make the cheesesteak. Recently moved here from PA. A friend told me about this place. So good. Amarosa rolls. The best! Cheesesteak was excellent. Next time I may try the pizza. Owner is an Eagles fan! Love it. I will be back. Fly Eagles Fly.

This place is insane Italian family comfort food. Itâs just plain old down home authentic goodness. The large meatball appetizer is insanely good. So far Iâve tried the veal Marsala and the veal parm. The parm is definitely going to give you a hearty leftover while the Marsala is a lighter portion but still plenty! Do yourself a favor and go eat at Il Forno!

Nothing really to write home about at this place. Just an average tasting pizza a lot like mall food courts would have. The prices werenât inflated for a pizza place which is always nice. I wouldnât say that this is a must see place in Lakeland and would suggest other eateries downtown.

Went to the highly rated restaurant in Lakeland with two family members and another couple. The food was Italian and very good. I enjoyed visiting with my company; however; the tables are jammed very close together, so much that the people behind were bumping chairs with me. Also; we heard everyones conversation along with ours.The owners do a great job with the food, but the atmosphere is lacking.
