Just finished having lunch there today. Had not been there for several weeks since our las experience was pretty unimpressive. Today was much improved. Service was good and food was much improved. One big problem. The VERY LOUD country western music. Hard to talk over and was more suited for a noisy bar or beer joint. I have nothing against the music, in fact I enjoy some of it some of the time. Just not at noon in an "Italian" restaurant.

I've eaten there three times and the food and service were excellent all three times. If the owner reads this I have some suggestions to improve business which seems to be rather slow. First - ditch the country music, put on some Frank Sinatra or Dean Martin. It's an Italian restaurant not a cowboy bar. Second - dim the lights and put table cloths on the tables along with candles. Third - chill the salad. Fourth - run a daily special for one of your entrees and price it at $8.99. Advertise the special on your sign each day. This will introduce your clientele to different dishes and bring more people into the restaurant. Fifth = dress waiters in white shirts with black ties. Sixth - station a hostess at the front door. Seventh - start a facebook page and advertise your specials each day. Eight - ask people to like you on facebook on your street sign. Nine - place partitions in the front seating area to create the feeling of privacy and Ten - open for Sunday lunch - the after church crowd could be your biggest day. This is my perspective - take it or leave it but I would like to hear other comments. I would really like to see this restaurant succeed.

We asked about the music when we went last. Waitress said they had tried Italian and Sinatra but had a lot of complaints so they went to country. Suggestions are very good ideas for them to use.

We have had dinner there twice now and both times the food was great! I think the daily specials would be a great idea.

I am a frequent customer at Italian Garden and I come in to eat in the day time and the night time and have never once seen anything like that in the store and for people to say "strippers" work there is just typical topix trash from people who have absolutly no idea what they are talking about. They have great food great prices and good customer service. So please anyone with half of a brain please disregard any and all comments involving a stripper and come and enjoy great food at great prices. It is all rediculous small town drama with absolutley no truth behind it. Grow up guys.
omg

The high school kid you speak of will probably grow up to be a stripper anyways. She was all used up by 15 from what I've heard about her from anyone that's known her. Plus I know for a fact she's a b**** and will only be nice to you if you offer to smoke with her.
that may hapen in the future but u cant predict that stop trying to bash people that are trying to work dont say things in reards of a resurant because one person that works there is a bad apple i wish peopl would leave our resturant alone to these allegations
