Love it! I love this restaurant so much, I had them cater my rehearsal dinner when I got married. Ingrid, the event manager was great, the service was wonderful and all our out of town guests loved the food. As for the restaurant itself, everything is really tasty and fresh, the decor is very nice. Delicious carnitas. Tasty margaritas with a good happy hour deal– $3.95, I think? It can get pretty loud in the main room, but the back room is quieter.

We had our rehearsal dinner here, Friday, August 5, 2011. We picked out the buffet and Ingrid, the manager, did a SUPERB job putting it together! My friends and family were impressed by the quality of the food as well as the service! If you are planning a banquet, this place is it! I give it a FIVE stars. They will take very good care of you and will not disappoint! Thank you Casa De Bandini for everything!! You guys ROCK!!!
