Hmmm, I thought my review of most (I know there are more but these are the ones I've personally been to) Italian restaurants in the area was pretty unbiased overall. These were based on my personal visit at each location. The comment about friends' comments on one restaurant is very true and not based on anything I've read online as many of our friends/family are just like us and like to give everything a try. We all discuss it when we're together and even with so-so reviews I have visited a restaurant as sometimes there is a bad night and it might be better next time. You can view a number of my reviews on a variety of websites as I review quite a few restaurants when I visit them. I like to try to visit "local" restaurants and not the chains. That way I'm supporting local people (wherever I visit) and not so much of the big companies. Also, it's a great way to experience the local flavor. We DO own a local family owned business (thankfully not a restaurant as I'm definitely not a cook) & I believe in supporting locally owned businesses. Happy Eats everyone & please be nice :)
I think it was a good review. One question, where is Scorpios located?

Thanks for the vote of confidence on my review.

Scorpios is located in Deltona at the intersection of Doyle & Courtland Blvds in an almost empty shopping plaza. Currently they and a Chinese restaurant are there along with a skate shop. Other than that the plaza is empty which is a shame.

Thank you for the info. The way things are going I'm afraid that there will be many more empty plazas which truly is a shame.

I have never eaten at Bumbinos I do know someone who worked there. They have the worst ethics when it comes to the way they treat their employees. Especially new hires. They would demand that you get there 15 mintues early, fill your station condiments, then clock in. If your shift was finished, they would make you clock out and wait for your tables to finish. Also, when you take a CC payment, you have to RUN it over to turn it in. If you don't you get yelled at even if someone stops you, that is no excuse. There is a 30 second time limit to RUN and turn it in. I knew several people that worked for them and that is why I never ate there. I don't support an employer that treats employess like this. I would rather take my money elsewhere. If your employees aren't happy, your business won't thrive. Word of mouth will travel fast.

it's even worse than that the woman who owns the place is the meanest person in the world i have seen her treat employees so bad that not only does she make them cry,shetries to make them look like mistakes made by her are there fault, one time i saw her trying to make the server clean the bathroom while waiting on customers and serving food, that was the last time i went in. people like this have no right owning a business. and employees should report this witch
Love the changes Bumbinos
