    Our third time here. Outstanding food. Waiter Dominick (second time he has waited on us) is outstanding. I ordered the Veal Chop Parm and it was wonderful. My wife had the Snapper and she really enjoyed it. Our relatives visiting from out of town had the chicken parm and the ravioli special. Both really enjoyed their food. Only thing to keep in mind is that this is not a quiet restaurant. A lively environment but very comfortable.

    Although Open Table reflected plenty of availability at the restaurant, the restaurant was crowded and totally chaotic. We were finally seated about an hour and 20 minutes after our reservation time. Service was rushed, food is average. The entertainer was well..... Entertaining. Probably the only positive comment I would have.

    Just love this restaurant. Consistently excellent - food, service and ambiance! Plan to make many visits. Great spot for entertaining. Plaudits, too, to Open Table for having an easy to use website and great followup. I make one comment/suggestion: Your website already begins the reservation with the 2 in number of people. Twice now I just 'zipped' over it as the pull down already was 'filled in'. Would prefer it be left blank to complete and not allow the reservation to go through until I 'pulled down' the number of people in the party. I had a tough time trying to change the number of people and finally did call the restaurant directly. Maybe it's just me! Thanks again.

    We were thrilled to find the restaurant so busy (since it was our first visit)..The decor was great, however; the service was rushed. The food was very bland (such a disappointment). Perhaps not to offend anyones palate. We had four different items and there was no flavor at all. The singer was very good & we did enjoy him.

    When we arrived for our 7:45 reservation we were told it would be 15 minutes. Luckily there were a couple seats at the bar. Two of of us had very good dinners...veal marsala and spaghetti and meatballs, however the one diner had to order spaghetti & meatballs because the waiter returned to the table to say they were out of the dish with the brasciole. Of the 2 snapper entrees,one was over cooked and one was just fair. For dessert we ordered the signature chocolate cake and the waiter returned to say they were out of it. Alternative tiramisu was excellent. Service excellent...fish dishes a disappointment.

    This new restaurant specialises in pasta and their "special meatballs". On Saturday night at 7:30 PM they were out of meatballs! (Does MacDonalds run out of hamburgers?) Although our reservation was honored on time, the tables were so close together that we had trouble being seated, and the waiters (when they showed up)were unable to walk around our table.(They passed us the food when it finally arrived) The noise was unbearable, and to make it worse, there was background music, and even a very loud strolling singer. The service was terrible, the food VERY expensive and unedible,and management could care less if we ever came back.(and we never will!)

    This was the second time for us. Sorry to say it was not nearly as good as the first visit. Meatball were undercooked and warm at best. The pepperocini appetizer was mushey and cool in the center. Caesar salad was just so so. Server forgot my side dish which never arrived. Will probably try one more time even though my veal was over loaded with the flour coating.

    First time at this restaurant. First 2 items selected on the menu were not available. My portion was very small. At dessert there were only 2 items available. We dined one hour after the restaurant opened so the lack of selection was not due to turnover. Overall there are far superior italian restaurants in the srea. I would doubt they would be open 6 monthts from now.

    This is a nice restaurant for old school NY style Italian American fare. The menu has all the favorites. For starters I had a small taste of eggplant with cheese and sauce. My dinner companion had the tri-color salad. The salad dressing was good but a bit acidic. Next I had a Veal Chop pounded and grilled with onions and red peppers ($34). Quite tasty. It came with green beans. My companion had the veal marsala (around $28-$30). Very good and the portions were correct. Nice wine list and prices are fair for the wines-bottles or by the glass. We had a tirimisu for desert ($11). This is a good restaurant not great but good. The prices are a little high for some items(desert-$11.) but I would still recommend.
