This was our first of many visits to come. I heard this place recently opened from a friend so our first night away from our newborn, we decided to give it a try. We are extremely happy we did!
Food: We had the fried artichoke hearts as an appetizer. They were great. My husband had the beef modiga with asparagus and a salad. He absolutely loved the sauce on his medium rare steak. He said that the steak was cooked perfectly and very tender. I had the ribeye with broccoli and a Caesar salad. The Caesar salad was a little too peppery and had a little too much dressing for me but the homemade croutons were great! The broccoli was good as well and not overly cooked. The ribeye I had was hands down the best steak I’ve eaten at a restaurant. And I have been to places like Ruth’s Chris steakhouse and paid hundreds of dollars for a ribeye half as good! I usually don’t order steaks at restaurants anymore because I’m usually disappointed.
Facility: The place still needs a little work (water leak from ceiling).
Service: EXCELLENT! Our waitress, Ashely, was exceptional and comped my beverage due to my dissatisfaction with the salad. After we told her how much we enjoyed our food, we specifically asked her to tell the cook and she did so. Unbeknownst to us, that man was the owner. Jim came out to greet us and let us know how thankful he was for our business and how happy he was that we enjoyed our food. He definitely seems to take pride in his work as a business owner and chef.
We give this place a well deserved FIVE!!! Good luck with the new business Jim. Small town business is tough but with your quality and dedication, we have no doubt this place is going to last!Amanda H.
Simple decor and friendly staff for our first visit. The menu was a tad smaller than the other Italian-American joint in town but still had plenty to offer for a new joint. The Alfredo sauce was very rich and thick and was tasty plain with the fettuccine and with the shrimp and mushrooms. The chicken parm was a great size and the tomato sauce was very good being sucked up with the house bread. Loved the asparagus as a side dish. Will definitely be back again.Jason G.
I have only had take out so I cannot speak clearly on the inside service or decor. I have really enjoyed getting take out! I have ordered the Taormina’s steak sandwich several times with a side salad and blue cheese. I have been very happy with all of my experiences. They always ask how I want the steak cooked, and the food is always ready within 10-15 minutes. The salad has been fresh and of a good size for a side salad. The steaks are big for a steak sandwich I would say 8 ounces, then it is topped with sauted mushrooms and provel cheese. I do not eat the bread so I cannot attest to its deliciousness, but it looks good and they always provide extra bread and butter if that is your thing! Pricing the steak sandwich and side is $9.25 with tax it is $10.03. I think the quantity and quality per price is a great value. Having not eaten inside I am not positive but from previous restaurants in this location and the parking lots size, it is not a huge establishment so may get busy during peak times, I am not sure. I wish them luck and have enjoyed everything so far! Quick, tasty and reasonably priced.Mary B.
Catering & Event Testimonials
Jim Dollard catered my wedding reception and my mother’s birthday party. The food was exceptional. Everything was on time, fresh and delicious. The friendly and professional service made the experience enjoyable for all in attendance. We look forward to catering our next event with Toaromina’s!Jim & Stacy Rowlett
My name is Denise Jones and in 2008 Jimmy D catered the food for my wedding. I still, to this day, have people talk about that food. It was not your “typical” banquet food. It was absolutely fabulous! Additionally, in 2010 my daughter turned 16 and we decided to have Jimmy cater the food. Once again, we were extremely happy with the results. We have called on him for graduation party’s, bridal showers, birthdays you name it if you want good food he will not disappoint. We have since moved to Florida and can not find anyone that delivers the way he does. From salads to steaks, you wont be disappointed if you choose Jimmy D for your catering needs.Tom & Denise Jones
My sister & I hosted a 70th birthday party for our Mom. I was a small, intimate affair of about 30 people. Jim Dollard & Team did a great job ensuring that my family was ‘stress free’ and could enjoy this special time with our Mom. The food (especially the main entrée of the Chicken with Artichokes) was scrumptious. The guests could not stop raving about all of the dishes. China and silverware were supplied so we did not have to worry about any clean up. No one else will ever do my catering in the future!Lynn Mckeone
We have used Jimmy on many occasions to cater business events, family gatherings, and parties. The service and presentation always makes our events a breeze. Better still is the food! The guests always compliment the various dishes making our event a success.
