We were a little disappointed with our table right next to the kitchen.
Great food and ambiance; thoughtful COVID precautions.
Outdoor dining with excellent table separation for social distancing. Jazz ban was excellent. Food, as always, was on point
Lovely outdoor dining with excellent social distancing!
Food was delicious and inventive. Service was very friendly but kind of slow... I blame walking back and forth to the inside bar and kitchen. We sat outside (Covid times), which was nice but one side faced a car repair shop and a dumpster. I wish they would have a fewer tables and not extend to the parking lot in back. Still a very nice evening and will certainly go back.
Excellent experience will definitely be back there very soon
Great atmosphere, amazing food and service. We love supporting local business we enjoy!!
Fantastic, as usual!
This is a wonderful restaurant in every way... food was great, waiter was engaged and energetic and good value overall apart from the drinks which were pricey for Westchester we thought. Plus there was a strange additional charge of $2.00 for the bar preparation which we noticed later. In any case this restaurant would be great for any occasion - big or small; romantic or family bash and had outside dining as well.
The food was amazing!!! So glad we finally had the chance to experience what everyone has been raving about!!! The staff and ambiance are Top notch as well!
Nice Sunday Evening Dinner outside. Waitress was phenomenal. Very attentive and knowledgeable. Ricotta Appetizer was nice and light. Main entrees for 4 diners didnt disappoint. Cocktails were well done and pineapple carrot cake was amazing
This is our favorite restaurant. We always have a wonderful meal here! Scott and Heather are fabulous hosts, and everyone is so professional. We had a few appetizers-standouts for me were the charred corn salad and the octopus. Three of us had the filet special-delicious and cooked to perfection! The desserts were wonderful of course-the carrot pineapple cake was a knockout. We will return again soon.
Always perfect! The owners are 100% involved with their business and it shows in the food, the staff, and the customers that frequent this wonderful restaurant!
The four of us went out for a birthday dinner. My close friend's wife had such a pleasant experience on her birthday at L'inizo's, cosidering the covid-19 pandemic that is still raging on. Everyone from the maitre d' to our wonderful waiter Gus, masks on, gloves worn. We felt very comfortable and safe during our dinning experience. A great place. We highly recomend it!!!
Great food and great service! Hope
To be back soon.
When was last time to had a salad at a restaurant and raved about it? Most likely never. But every time we have a salad here it’s a “I can’t wait to tell a friend how inventively wonderful it was” salad. And the mains dazzle the palate equally as well. This is a must stop for any true foodie within driving distance. Don’t miss this gem. We won’t.
Never a disappointment
Great food variety
Considering the situation, L'inzio is doing a great job!
One of our favorite Westchester restaurants. Consistently good. Service could use some polishing, but other than that it is spot on. The outdoor experience is fine.
Once again - in this summer heat - and during a pandemic - couldn't ask for a better outdoor option. Food at L'Inizio is consistent and creative. Staff could not be more helpful or friendly. The perfect remedy from too many home-cooked shut-in meals.
Best food in this part of town
Outdoor chairs a little uncomfortable, but food was expected nice quality, service good as usual and table spacing excellent in these times - well done, L’Inizio!
Food is fantastic. Much better than the last time we were there last summer. The outside is ugly but this is a pandemic and it’s well worth suffering through sitting in the driveway of a tire store for a great meal.
We’ll be back very soon.
Delicious food! Very good, friendly service with appropriate pandemic precautions.
The food gets better and better every time I go! They do not disappoint!
Friendly service; fresh & beautifully-prepared food. Will be back!
Like many others, we've avoided dining at restaurants but took advantage of the garden seating at L'Inizio. The clean white tables in the backyard are very inviting, and it was a great relief to have the same high quality cuisine as before the pandemic. Servers were highly attentive and welcoming. We managed to finish (almost) all of our meal when the heavens opened and a downpour put an end to our wonderful meal. Luckily, we had two giant umbrellas in our car - parked nearby. The amazing staff did not miss a beat - even though drenched to the bone they continued to show each diner their utmost attention and assistance. Congratulations to L'Inizio - truly fine and creative food- and highly dedicated staff. It was a pleasure to dine with you.
Scott continues to dazzle with his innovative twists on traditional Italian fare. Heather has taken dessert to a new level. Covid, shmovid. Go and have a great meal.
The food and service is always excellent. The seating out back was comfortable and spaced out.
As always the food was absolutely delicious. Service great! Outdoor dining was wonderful. All precautions were strictly adhered to. We will be back!
I love this restaurant! The food is so delicious and the staff is nice. The outdoor area was nicely socially distanced and the staff helpful. Can't wait to go again.
Our first night out to dinner since March! We sat in the back patio are, tables were spaced well, servers wore masks and although it was hot, the umbrella kept us covered from the sun until it waned. Food was well made and presented. It was so nice to be dining again!
Food was AMAZING! But who doesn’t have bread to serve before the meal!? So disappointed!
VERY good food - really impressive. Took leftovers home: still great the following day. Serving outdoors under these unusual conditions required extra work by the staff, and they really did the job.
Delicious homemade pastasand the Brussel sprouts are outstanding.
Our food was delicious. We enjoyed the atmosphere, our drinks, our server and our dinner. We will definitely be back!
Great meal. We enjoyed the whole experience. Thank you.
We always enjoy L’inizio from the friendly greeting at the front door to the very attentive wait staff. The excellent food has not disappointed and has been very consistent on our many dining experiences.
