We placed a last minute order for a work meeting. The management was friendly and accommodating. The dishes were delicious. We had Spaghetti & Meatballs, Chicken Marsala w/Mashed Potato's and Veggies, Caesar Salad and the BREAD!!!!!! .... Oh my! We will definitely be ordering again for our company events. I will also be back with my family.

Service is always so great here and the food is killer! Nice to know these are home cooked meals and the owners take pride in what they do! Our waitress is always so great and knows us by first name basis. You cant get that kind of love anywhere like here!!

Very good food seemed like it was handmade. I got the shrimp and scallop scampi very delicious the shrimp was overcooked though

Was excited to try this place as I’ve seen the photos and read the reviews. Disappointed. The cheese pizza was super greasy-cheese sliding right off. Rigatoni, was told it was going to come in spicy marinara—not spicy at all, chicken was tough and no cheese or anything on top. Chicken Glorioso-super buttery but flavor was okay. Garlic bread was just okay but did like that it came with dipping vinegar. They also have a huge indoor space but no one was in there. Not sure I’ll be back…

Ceres' hidden Italian gem! Gotta say the food is excellent and well-priced. The "Glorioso" was a hit! Great service with that family-owned touch. Get the fresh baked bread... wow! Great job guys, we will be back!

Didn't feel like driving to Modesto to get a good meal.We went there mainly because it was open and close to our hotel. I went with four other family members and they all loved their dinners! I had a calzone and it was EXCELLENT!! Flavor was incredible!! Thank you American Italian Bistro! I WILL be back. Service was exceptional as well. I never once I had to ask for a refill of have to look for our server.

Excellent food and excellent services with great prices. I love that they are locally owned and not a chain. Quality is far beyond what you'll find at a chain restaurant.

I tried this place for the first time last night. I have been craving Bruschetta since Olive Garden removed it from its menu long time ago. Well, I ordered to go the Clam chowder, Shrimp Alfredo and Bruschetta. I Loved my Bruschetta!! And my Mother in law and my Husband Loved their food as well. They made everything from scratch, no defrosted, reheated anything. Great taste ? and the Restaurant was nice too. We need to go back and try the rest of the menu, but this time we'll be dining in.

Beautiful restaurant and delicious food! The portions were huge and they give complimentary side salads and bread (hot and fresh!) I recommend the lemon chicken SO delicious!!! The coconut shrimp appetizer was so hot, fresh, and crispy as well.Amazing service by Yenifer, she was all by herself as a server but was quick, pleasant, and attentive. She was even her own food runner and busser!We will definitely be back thank you!

I read great reviews so thought I'd try it, had the calzone...HUGE mistake, I love a good calzone, either I don't know what a calzone is supposed to be, or the kid cooking doesn't. wife's order was good, off day I guess...!

I ordered the risotto and asked to withhold the wine. Sure, no problem. When I get it, it looks nothing like any risotto I've seen either at a restaurant or on TV. It looked like it was res sauce with rice. The mussels and clams were yummy but the calamari and shrimp were over cooked. The salmon was ok. The red sauce tasted like Spaghettios only way more expensive. The person I was with didn't know I ordered risotto since she didn't recognize it as such. The service is so so and it seems like they don't make anything there in house.

I had the chicken marsala and it was very good! The sides of mashed potatoes and veggies were also delicious as well as the garlic bread. I especially liked the authentic taste, definitely high quality ingredients.

Just ordered and waiting for food yet we can already tell this place deserves 5 very full stars. Customer service is stellar, a very warm and welcoming environment. The rolls were amazing and expect our meals to follow suit. Very convenient location off the 99. We will come back despite living far away. Food here, must stop reviewing now.


We were recommended this place by a friend and we were pretty impressed with the service and the flavor of the food. The bread is absolutely amazing and the sauce tasted fresh and was hot. Also important is the customer service. Marisol was an amazing hostess and server. If you go, just tell her Nelson sent you ?
