    Great food

    My wife and I returned after a great food experience mixed with poor service. The second time was markedly better as the waitstaff was attentive and helpful. The waitress was particularly nice when I spilled my wine all over my wife, giving her a free refill and TLC. The chicken scarpiello is unbelievable and the pasta comes steaming hot and very tasty.

    They hide their health rating pending behind the potted pine trees flanking the entrance so you can't see it.

    Disappointing Experience

    Destino has always been a semi-reliable, neighborhood restaurant. As of recently it seems to have taken a turn for the worst, without even being able to get most of the Italian-American basics such as chicken francese or chicken marsala right. The portions are miniscule with a sliver of a potato and one broccoli floret appearing scarcely on each main course plate. With many main courses nearing $30, they should be able to provide more than 3 oz of chicken on the plate, even if they aren't going to get it right. Not sure who's cooking, but the food could be better at the Olive Garden. No one seems in charge and the ladies in front were disorganized an confrontational when a problem was brought to their attention. It was a waste of nearly a few hundred dollars and with better choices along first avenue, there will be no reason to go back.

    Bravo Destino's

    We go to Destino's regularly and love it. The people are attentive and friendly and the food is great. We took a friend who is a foody there and he loved it and returns with my husband often. Great drinks.

    Some dishes are amazing...and some or just not!

    I actually really like this place however its a hit or miss with some dishes. The salads are great, the appetizers are good (esp the mozzerella and of course their meatballs)... but the entrees are the problem. First none of the entrees come with pasta. How do you not have chix parm w/o pasta?! And for a side of pasta it's another $14! My bf and I always get the chicken parm and it's delicious with the side of pasta (which sometimes they give us for half the price since we want a "side" of it). However, I have ordered other things on the menu like their roasted chicken and I was UNIMPRESSED! It was about 6 chicken wings that were "roasted" (I think). They were not good at all. First they should not have chicken wings and say it as if it's a roasted chicken like one piece of meat with a bone (which is what I thought it was)... random pieces of little chicken wings is NOT what it said. They should just take it off the menu b/c if I went their once and got this I would never go back! They should have 1-2 healthier items on the menu which is why I got the roasted chick (wings). Perhaps they need a grilled chicken type dish... I would just stick to the staple item like meatballs and chix parm. I do agree their prices are slightly steep considering the food is not always 100% amazing. I will say the atmosphere is nice. The service is great. It's really relaxing and you aren't rushed out. I like this.

    Way overpriced for common fare

    Chicken Parm, medium-small portion $21. - So-so Salad $10. - With tax and tip $40. with NO Drink.- Huh! - Add a glass of wine and you just paid $55 for good pizzeria food.
