My Husband and I were thrilled to have the opportunity to dine at Di Mario's, one of Burlington's most highly-rated restaurants. We were not disappointed.

Culaccino Bar + Kitchen

Culaccino Bar + Kitchen

From the homemade ketchup to the hot sauce and pasta, everything at Culaccino is made in-house and it shows in the quality of the food.

On our visit, we tried the Funghi pizza, white wine sangria, fries with parmesan and truffle oil, and cheese cake. Everything was delicious and well-prepared.

We had the option to sit outside and the staf was very accommodating in moving us to an outdoor table as soon as one became available.

Overall, this is a great restaurant for a casual dinner with friends or a special occasion. The food is fantastic, the service is top-notch, and the ambience is perfect. I highly recommend giving it a try.

Cima Enoteca

Cima Enoteca

I had the pleasure of dining at Cima, a fantastic Italian restaurant located at 1200 Brant St. The food was absolutely delicious, as it always is at this establishment.

However, it was the service that really made this visit stand out. Our server, Samantha, went above and beyond in terms of attentiveness and attention to detail. She truly made our dining experience exceptional.

If you're in the mood for authentic Neapolitan cuisine and top-notch service, Cima is the place to go. I highly recommend this restaurant and give a special shoutout to Samantha for her excellent work.

Domenic's Italian Eatery

Domenic's Italian Eatery

I had heard great things about Domenic's Italian eatery and finally decided to give it a try. I'm so glad I did, because it did not disappoint.

Domenic the owner recommended the veal in a bun sandwich and it was absolutely divine. Really big portion, tasty bun, toppings were fresh and delicious.

It's great to see a family-owned restaurant that values producing high-quality food at reasonable prices.

I'll definitely be coming back in the future and I'd highly recommend this spot to anyone in the area looking for a tasty Italian meal.

Marciano's Pasta Cafe

Marciano's Pasta Cafe

Marciano's is hands down one of the best Italian restaurant I've ever been to. The food is authentic, fresh, full of flavor, and served in generous portions. It's also fairly priced, which is always a plus.

The pasta and entrees are prepared à la minute, which means they're made fresh when you order them. This really comes through in the taste.

My husband, who is a bit of a foodie, even commented that this was the best Italian food he's ever had. I've even heard Italians say they love coming here, so you know it's the real deal.

The staff at Marciano's are amazing too. They make you feel like family and are always attentive and helpful. The ambiance is a bit cave-like since the restaurant is located in a lower basement unit built into a hill, but it's actually quite cozy. Just make sure to make a reservation in advance, as this spot is always in high demand.

If you're a foodie who values quality and reasonable prices, you need to check out Marciano's. You won't be disappointed.
