Our table was greeted with water and some homemade garlic rolls. The three of us ended up going through two baskets of bread (oops). It was a challenge deciding what entree to get, as they all looked so delicious. The choices included cheese ravioli, pizza, chicken fettuccine, shrimp alfredo, chicken marsalsa, cannelloni, lasagna, and many other Italian dishes.

All of our meals came out looking wonderful. The quality is the best I’ve had in Lubbock at an Italian restaurant. Everything is homemade, even down to the salad dressings. The sauces tasted fresh and the portions were perfect. The tiramisu was a great finish to the meal. It is simple and classic Italian food. The restaurant can accommodate large groups, but make sure to call ahead.

    now, now. watch out who you call a dive. the Italian Garden is one of my favorites. it’s nice, safe, clean and directly across from city hall. you want the names of some great dives, i can point out a lot but Italian Garden falls under the great category but not the dive category.

    Charles, a dive isn’t a bad thing – we really enjoyed Italian Garden as you can see from our article! Thanks for your comment.

    Yes, this place is great. The cannoli is exceptional. I have not tried the pizza yet, but some friends did and said it was good, too. Hope they get support and can stay in business a long time!

    We go there regularly and love everything we have eaten! The BYOB is a huge plus for us and our friends, because it cuts down on the expense of going out and ordering a bottle(s) of wine. We LOVE Italian Garden! I’m happy to see it busy, because we went the first two weeks they opened and it was just us and another lady who was reading a book at a table while she ate. Now it is usually pretty lively!

    My wife and I tried the Italian Garden and it was very good. Thanks for the tip. Best Italian food in town.

    My husband and I went there last week. Amazing food. Homemade fresh garlic bread comes out to your table prior to ordering food. The pasta sampler was very small, about two bites of lasagna, manicotti, and cannelloni. Just enough for me though. The pink sauce (alfredo and their marinara mixed) does cost, just keep that in mind. They didn’t tell us that the sauce cost extra. All in all it was delicious and we will be going back.

  8. Without a doubt the BEST Italian food in West Texas. Been there 3 times within a month w/several friends now it is their favorite. food is phenomenal. Going this weekend.

    Is it kid friendly for Saturday lunch? We’ve been wanting to try it out.

    Hi Sara,

    Absolutely! We even dined one Saturday evening and saw plenty of children in the restaurant. 🙂

    Enjoy! Let us know how you like it.
