    Had a very nice 1st experience at Faustina. We loved the Fried Goat Cheese as a starter and our boys (3&6 years of age) really enjoyed their mac and cheese off the small plate menu. Our cocktails were very tasty and the WBG selection was bigger than I expected. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the seafood scampi while my oldest and I enjoyed the Clam Diavolo. For dessert the chocolate shake was perfect for the kids and of course we had to do a quality check and they were excellent. If you haven't been to Faustina, you should go and enjoy yourself. We did.

    Our waitress was rude and had a poor additude. We had a party of 7 and she never asked if this was separate or one ticket. She printed out just one ticket and we needed it separated. We asked her to do so and she seemed annoyed about it. And said, "you guys need to just tell me." Had a additude. Then when she brought our checks back she told my friend that paid with cash, "im assuming you didnt want change back." Not very polite.

    I went to this restaurant for the first time with my husband for his birthday dinner. The food was fantastic! I ordered the salmon dish and he ordered a pasta with chicken as well as the small Mac and cheese since he is a Mac and cheese connoisseur. They were all quite good and the presentation was beautiful. Sadly the restaurant was freezing cold, which other patrons were complaining about as well and the service was extremely slow with the exception of the time between ordering and the arrival of my food. It was not busy when we were there and it just seemed like our waitress was being inattentive.

    When we were seated at the restaurant we were immediately brought waters and then sat for 20 minutes without anyone introducing themselves or asking for drink orders. Six feet away their was a group of six servers/bussers setting up for a large party, we had to flag them down. There was a miscommunication about whose section we were in, besides the beginning everything was great. We ordered all small plates and everything came out fast and was really good. The apple tarte was far better than what I was expecting. Would definitely go back again.

    What I really liked about Faustina was the ambiance - it's not over-the-top in decoration but the ambiance and setting is perfect for date-night. Though it was too cold for outdoor seating (October), I still really liked the indoor dining. Food was delicious, though I felt my date out-ordered me haha! We started off with the calamari, a great starter, then she had the scallops, which were AMAZING, and I had chicken penne, which was still good... but not what I expected for the high price; it was a bit watery. Though I wouldn't let that discount the whole menu. For dessert we had the panna cotta with some wine - perfect ending to the meal. Though my plate left a bit more to be desired, I'd still highly recommend this place for dining out.

    I'm not exactly sure what was going on, but the server was non existent. When we saw him, he was a super nice guy. But it took 20 minutes before we were even able to order drinks, and it's because I grabbed a server who wasn't ours. The bacon wrapped dates were great! I would recommend to anyone who goes there. The scallops were tasty according to the 5 people at my table who had ordered them, their only complaint was that 1 more would've made the entree perfect. My stuffed medallions were good, but my medium rare steak was well done.

    Our server was very pleasant, but every step of the dining experience took forever. Lunch took almost two hours from when we arrived to when we paid, and it was not because we took long to order or lingered after we had finished eating. The restaurant was not even close to full either. They did provide a complimentary birthday dessert for one of the party which was a great gesture! The butternut squash soup is fantastic, the sweet potato chips are perfectly crunchy and not too salty, and the caprese sandwich was delicious!

    We opted to eat outdoors due to the excellent weather. The service was exceptional, appetizers and wine were delicious. As the evening progressed and it started to get dark we notices our table had no lighting. The staff brought candles but I still could not see the delicious cioppino as I was eating. I had to use my flashlight app on my phone to get the visual pleasure I enjoy when dining.

    We arrived for an early dinner. Most people were seated outside but we preferred an indoor booth. There were a group on the other side of the room that were loud but after they left, we had the place to ourselves. The server was wonderful. Everything we ordered from appetizers, salad, 3 separate meals and a dessert was very, very good - along with the presentation It was delivered in a timely manner and the price of the meals were on point. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for a good food, good atmosphere and good service.

    My wife and I chose Faustina because we were looking for a romantic evening for our anniversary dinner. As bad luck would have it a very loud party of six was seated next to us, conventioneers out for a good time. Our fault for not asking to move but by then the restaurant was filling up. Our waitresswas also spending a lot of time with a table of obvious friends and though we weren't in a hurry it was frustrating to watch her stop to chat each time she was on her way to our table. It was an ok experience but not a great experience. The halibut special was average and a little dry. The scallops were wonderful. In fact, if we had stopped at the appetizers and gone somewhere else for the main course it would have been a perfect evening.

    I hadn't been to Faustina for a while, and it's nice to see that it is still as good as I remembered. Nicely varied menu, with many options depending on your appetite. Several people ended up waiting on us, and they were all friendly without being too overbearing. And, since they weren't busy by the time we finished our meal, they let us sit & talk with our friends for quite a while. A very nice evening.

    The nervousness of going on a first date was immediately put to rest by a very gracious staff, from the initial greeting at the door to the impeccable service. The fun choices on the menu have us just the right icebreaker to talk about. The portions are perfect for sharing and everything we tried was amazing. The lamb chops looked almost too good to eat...almost. My date had the soufflé for dessert, it looked ten feet tall and although she claimed to be full, our outstanding waitress took back an empty dish. Highly recommend this place, made me look like a hero. Thanks Faustina!!!

    chose the filet 2 ways. Very imaginative and true to its description, crab and bernaise with asparagus on one side, and wine reduction over peppercorn mashed potatoes on the other - the chef's new england roots were clearly on display. food and service were very well done. no wonder this group is buying up several of the local foodie hotspots and remaking them. the indoors is tired and quirky, but it works. everything shouldn't be sparkly, new and hip. Faustina proves you don't judge a book by its cover..
