Service wasn't great. We ordered all you can eat spaghetti and the waitress never came back to the table after she delivered the food. The food was good. Bread is fantastic!

Have gone here for years & this past Saturday might be my last. Phone person was so rude taking my order for carryout. Garlic bread was way overdone. Not pleased at all after spending $40

Jordan Lopez

Best Italian restaurant in town

Sarah simonson

Always great food. Great staff.

marna galvan

I absolutely love the gondolas sandwiches from here

Trinity Crist

The food was ok at best, our server was not very attentive. I order the garlic legacy it didn’t really have any garlic on it, on top of the meat being very salty. Also it’s just a sandwich no fries or chips with it. Was not very impressed I doubt I will be returning here. Not true Italian food if that’s what you are looking for.

Lynda Chitek

We had my son's rehearsal dinner here in the banquet room. Everything from start to finish was wonderful. The owner, I can't remember his name, was so accommodating about numbers changing and even brought out 2 plates of plain spaghetti for the kids who don't like sauce. There was so much food and I did not hear anything bad about any of it. Beer and wine was brought out for us. The young ladies who were assigned to us did awesome at keeping tables cleared. Everyone we dealt with was very friendly. Everyone commented how nice they were and how nice the room was. It was so relaxing knowing everything was taken care of for us. I would recommend Italian House to anyone who is looking to have any kind of dinner. Thank you to your entire staff for a wonderful night.

Joe Schauf

The garlic bread is good, but if you have any intention of eating real Italian food, you came to the wrong place. Try driving 40 miles north for authenticity, the people in this town wouldn’t know real Italian food if a plate of gnocchi punched them in the mouth.

Amanda S-B

Food was terrible and made me sick, called in for refund and the owner didn’t believe me and wanted me to bring in the food I threw away, he eventually hung up on me, very unprofessional

Kelly Donahue

Troy Morton

Love the bread my first time there would recommend to everyone and the food is awesome.

Larry A Stafford

Great family restaurant... food is great & service is friendly!

Jerome Long

We've ordered take-out from Italian House many times. That said, I'm not entirely sure why we do. It's somewhat pricey and the food is only fair to middling. The take-out window is a plus and the sub sandwiches are very good. The portions are generous.But the beef ravioli is only ok. The sauce they use is too sweet for my taste. The garlic bread is ok, but again too sweet for me. The chicken Alfredo is dreadful. It's utterly tasteless except for a slight paper bag flavor. So what you end up with is a congealed mass of pasta tasting of paper. I suppose we'll keep going because my wife likes the ravioli. But I cant honestly recommend the Italian House.

Kacey Kaderly

The owner Edmund is one of the coolest guys around Janesville! Love me some Italian House! Food is delicious and affordable.

Tonya M.

Tasty Italian food with a smile! The Mobster is great , cheesy Spaghetti and meatballs on delicious garlic Italian bread! Yum.

Rob Knapp

Excellent food as always! Great service!

derik pollock

Won't be eating here anymore. I can make spaghetti, ham and cheese sandwiches at home.

Mark Vittone

Good food. wish it was spicier though.

Bill Lapins

First time dining here ... Will be back!!!


Nice owner, best food in janesville by far.

TJ Hartley

The food is great. Good local business. It doesn't matter what you order, it will be good.


I would rate this 0 stars if it were a choice, but it’s not so I’ll rate it one stars. I would like to address my first concern with the fact that the workers who work there on the weekdays at about 10am-2pm are extremely rude. I have NEVER experienced such disrespect from any restaurant workers in my life. Its not even one worker, it’s ALL the workers. We give them money so they can provide a life for themselves and their family and they still have the audacity to treat us so inhumanly!! I honestly don’t have any other concerns besides that. I’m just APPALLED at such horrific behavior from these people workers. I would NOT recommend going to this Italian house if you do not have to go.

Stephanie Pawlitschek

Amazing first experience. First item was spaghetti I did not like the sweet flavor to it so they gave me a different item and and made everything better waitress was very knowledgeable friendly and understanding decent prices as well

Dick Ault

Kathylou Banks

Food is Awesome and the hell is very friendly!!!!! I will suggest this place to everyone

Julian Welch perez

Authentic Italian cuisine with creative selections

Eric McShane

Such a enjoyable place to have a sit down meal with people close to you. The spaghetti and meatballs is a delight to you and the lucky people around you who will be pleased by the lovely smell. Go ahead and grab some of the generous sliced garlic bread they So humbly prepare for you. The taste of the combo of spaghetti and meatballs paired with the side of garlic bread is something Italian House should be proud of. Thank you for what you do guys. This is a mom and pop place. Tip: they have a drive thru with a great selection for your hungry needs.

Jeff Lind

Great value with great flavors.

Liberty Jones

Beautiful occasion! Terrible "Italian" food...smh...smh.

Karrisa M

Amazing! Always great service, delicious food, and the family that owns it is so genuine and kind! 5⭐️ isn't enough!

William Morse

Nice place to go

Joe McIntyre

Without question the very best sandwiches I've ever eaten

Wayne Teal

Great food. Great owner.

Dave R

Love this place. This was our high school go to for lunch and after 19 years, I visited again when in the area and it is still the best Italian food around. If we could ship it to D.C., we would!

Junichi Judd

I'll admit, I might be a little biased, but I love this place. I've been coming here since I was a teen. The food is always tasty, and they have always done their best to get everything done quickly and correctly. Whether you live in Janesville or are just visiting. I totally recommend stopping here at least once in your life.

Roberta Waugh

Wonderful food and service as always

Patricia McGuire MD FAAP

I changed to a whole food plant-based diet for my health 2 years ago. I had no problems having them adjust menu items to meet my needs. They are very gracious about making adjustments for customers.

Catherine Banner

Thanks for the great service for our group! I think we totaled 16 ladies! The food is always wonderful and we plan to come back!!

David Lovrland

Always great

Meaghan Gruenwald

Good food, bad service. I called in an order to pick up. She was extremely rude and having a side conversation the entire time with a co-worker. I had to repeat everything I said multiple times

Bret Kroeze

Always excellent! Best garlic bread on the planet!

Amy Bryant

One of our first stops when back in Janesville.

Tiago Silverio da Silva

Food is simply and great. It's an excellent choice if you are not looking for an upscale dinner.

Craig Kleinschmidt

Good food

Debie Buttke

They have really good foot, the people that came out to our were very nice.

Christine Brunner

If I could this place would get zero stars! The food is good, but the owner sucks!

John Schmitz-Granger

Really good food for reasonable prices. We got 4 ala carte entrees and 1 dinner for $40 and we all were stuffed. Lasagna is delicious. I have yet to try any subs but no doubt they are great as well.

Mike Rundle

Local Italian eatery that has the best bread in town. Pasta & their gondola sandwiches are also very good.


Such great food! Lovely staff as well.

Lyndsey Brown

The best! Edmund is amazing

Justin Brunner

Great place to get bang for your buck when you want some solid italian food! The spaghetti hits all the right notes - not the best I've ever had, but very tasty and satisfying! The garlic bread was remarkable in that it had a slight sweetness to it that was unexpected, yet welcome. Will certainly stop by again if I need a quick bite in the neighborhood!

Katherine McClure

Amazing food and great service

Brian king

They are fantastic! I LOVE the bread and sauce, it's amazing! I've been coming here since high school in the 80's and never been disappointed. Even when there have been small issues, they take care of things and make sure we're satisfied. Just ordered online with their new service, it was very easy. Keep up the great work!

Kari Adams

Quick pick-up and helpful staff

Aric Larum

Great Janesville business.

Alexis Johnson

Long wait to order but good food

rusty brassi

Uniquely crafted sandwiches, great service, and just hands down good food.

Taylor Foley

Lots of great food..

Lou Glowacki

Always have the best meals and friendly staff

David Wolken

Worth the visit. True Italian, not Americanized. Would have rated higher except for the sweet white bread.

Chuck Bennett

Superb food and great atmosphere.

Jenna Tyler

Delicious! The Mobster is amazing, not something to eat on a diet but so good. The garlic bread has almost this sweet taste to it. The prices are a tad bit high but the food is definitely worth it.

Marie Madden

Great food! Great service!!

Anne Gilmore

Good and a good price for the family meals.

Monika Kalandyk

So at first, was brought soda in a cans which turned me and my boyfriend off from the getco. Then we ordered our food which took some time. I ordered the mobster which was messy but pretty good. My boyfriend ordered the garlic legacy sandwich which he did not like at all. He said the meat was very salty and it also did not come with any chips or fries on the side which blew his mind!!! How can you have a sandwich with no fries on the side, or at least chips??? We were pretty dissatisfied and will not be back. Sorry not sorry...

Bob Kastorff

Good food and priced reasonably

John Henry

Nice atmosphere good food.

PHP Agent

Good food,great service.The owner is a good guy.

Bethany Martin

This place saves my life on nights when the family is running three directions at once! We have five young kiddos, and sometimes we want more of a "restaurant experience" without breaking the bank, and this place fits the bill! They are very kid-friendly without being a "kid restaurant". They can either do kid-sized portions or divide an adult portion between two plates. Also, the kids' cups have lids. That's always a win. ;) We all really enjoy the food. I recently tried the flatbread pizza, and it was really good.

Barry Quackenbush

3 stars is a little generous. We have them cater at work once or twice a year and they're sandwiches are great. We did go in less than an hour before close so maybe that was the problem. I have masta and my wife had spaghetti. Noodles were a little hard and their meatballs are not the best. Honestly a little disappointed after all the amazing things I've heard. I reserve the right to change my rating after I go a second time during one of the rushes. P.S. bread was on point

Pamela H

Love this food. You get so much I couldn't eat all the chicken fetticine Alfredo. Awesome staff.

Bruce Blichtenbert

Very good Italian restaurant despite the fact that's in Wisconsin

rich gruber

Consistently good food and could use a bit more wait staff.

Ken Edwardson

Chicken Parmesean was almost chickenless!

Cathy Pitera

Mom and I went to Italian House for lunch

Cathleen Fotorny

I go here quite frequently. The food is generally good, their pizza is the best! However their service is extremely slow. Waited at least an hour to be served and it wasn’t due to being busy. There was only one other table being used. Wait staff turnover maybe? Also looks like the drive thru is being served before the in house patrons are. As for the food it’s decent and I will be going back. Just plan accordingly.

Dale DeBauche

The lasagna is amazing. Looking forward to utilizing their catering services later this year. Wonderful service and food to match.

sally rook

See how many famous people signed the wall.

Pete Hall

They have gluten free mastachole!

Michael Garvin

Good food fair price.

mfcs rock

Love the food!


Always order the cinnamon bread.

Anthony w. Cox

The best Italian restaurant I've been too ye

Aditya Karandikar

Entrees are above average, but nothing to rave about, though the bread is phenomenal. Worth a visit and make sure to order items off of the menu which include bread.

OutoftheAshes _

A very nice sit down family restaurant. The Gondolas are amazing!

Patrick Porter

Howard's Personal Blogs

Italian house is freaking fantastic!!

David Olson

Order was wrong and the staff seem incompetent and when we called to complain they told us sorry.They call it meat but i didnt taste any in my spagetti.not worth the money ..

Adam Brotzman

Best Italian restaurant in janesville!! Try any of the wonderful gondolas, you wont be disappointed!

Jamie Schoonover

Excellent Subs at the Italian House. Very clean. Stop and check it out you won't be disappointed

Melanie Mattke

The lasagna was noodle on noodle with a meatless sauce and cheese on top - about a half inch thick. The chicken parmesan was grilled, instead of breaded, bite size pieces of chicken mixed in a meatless sauce with cheese melted over it. Seemed more like fast food Italian than authentic Italian. We've had better food at Olive Garden. The cheese garlic bread with marinara sauce was good.

Mike Sommerfeldt

I used to like this place. The food still tastes great, but when they forget part of your order and you drive half way across town to pick it up, they offer no incentive to return. Also, the portion control of their over $4 a slice cheesecake is ridiculous! Is this a game of "let's see how many pieces we can get out of a pie"?

Christy Gilgan

Love their subs!

Tom Poulakos

Really good garlic bread

Brian Smith

Really good spaghetti and meat balls

Mike Van Dan

Service is great, price is right and the food is great

Mike Rolfs

This is such an interesting place. The decor is somewhat old world. The food is standard restaurant Italian, good and lots of it. Not spectacular but certainly great when you're hungry. But what really got me is the special. Any place that has their specials measured in gallons has my respect. Now THAT'S how you eat. My hat's off to the Italian House. If your Italian mama or grandma told you "You are too skinny!" just go here and your problems are solved

Keith Thompson

Excellent food, pleasing atmosphere, great value. Eating Local is better.

Jason Brown

Awesome. Especially when you get one of their sandwiches with garlic bread.

Robert Hiller

They have good food and nice service area

Trevor Zwald

Alexander Jones

Sauce and bread. Get those and your day is set

Tim Hall

The food is pretty bad. Everything is too sweet, even the bread tasted sugary. It seems like it is all frozen, prepackaged stuff that they just heat up and serve.

John Sampson

Home made good..yum yum

Mike Thomsen

Big, tasty sandwiches and very reasonable prices mean we'll be back again.

Dennis Goetz

Always great food 25 yrs still as good as it's ever been.

Mary Falk

The food is awesome. I love the atmosphere. The staff is so kind and welcoming. Ed, the owner has a great thing going. I would recommend it to everyone.

Connor Lapins

Good cheap americanized italian food!

Tamra Weisensel

I pick up food there regularly, they are always friendly and on top of things.

Karen Swenson

My sandwich, the Legend, was delicious. Friendly staff.

David Ascherl

It may not be authentic Italian food but it is pretty darn good for the price and for the amount you receive. Personally I love their Beef Tortellini & garlic cheese bread. Also I like their food better than what I paid for at Olive Garden.

Colin Moriarty

This restaurant had a very unique red sauce and bread recipe which is astounding. I've hunted most of the country for something similar without success. The bread is quite sweet, which makes both the signature sandwich (the gondola) and the garlic bread really a treat. It is made fresh and is so good that they sell it ready to bake at local supermarkets. The sauce is really exceptional. It cannot possibly be healthy, it's too good. It has tomato paste, sausage, and grease (I mean that in a completely positive way) notes, and lots of oregano. It is totally different from the tomato-chunk, watery marinara Ive see in a lot of checkered tablecloth places. It's viscous, which is great for dipping, and terribly addictive.
