Diner Reviews
  • "Wasn't expecting much from the outside and wasn't disappointed. I like cozy and that it was however not a warm feeling. Gnoche was rather mushy although sauce (pesto) was very good. Meatballs nice. Chicken dish tasty. What's up with "no vegetable substitutions."

  • "Had lunch with my adult children and we were all very pleased. Supper thin and crispy pizza, focaccia was very tasty, and the stuffed French toast with mascarpone cream was delicious."

  • "I have been here for a Sunday brunch before and the service was good along with the food. This time I had a very different experience where salads were sub par, were soggy, and lacked taste. Service was not good starting with seating which was extremely cramped; my chair was wedged in where any mobility was difficult. At the end of the meal we were informed(with no apology) that the credit card processing wasn't working. We didn't have much cash but after waiting 20 minutes for the bill to be processed, we paid in cash. This was a fun neighborhood place but I doubt I will return."

  • "A very nice and small pretty restaurant right by Beacon Theater! A good plus was there were many food choices especially pizzas. I had the crabmeat ravioli with lemon sauce which was delicious! My friend had chicken piccata which was also good as well! We both shared the chocolate bomb dessert which was a pleasant because it was very light and it did not make us feel even more stuffed after our meal. The portions were reasonable for one person but the pizzas are good to share with the table. One huge negative was they overcharged my friend's credit card 3x. But she was able to get her refund three days after talking to the manger in person the night after we ate there. They even offered her a glass of wine while waiting which was nice."

  • "My group was not disappointed! The lady who seated us immediately recognized our name from the Open Table reservations list. The ambience was perfect for what I wanted, joining up with a family member from long ago. The food was excellent, the service was great and a nice wine list. We were not rushed, the atmosphere was perfect, not too formal yet not too casual."

  • "Tight tables and sparse goat cheese on my goat cheese sala made me think this place is just fine, nothing special despite its cute name."

  • "I went to this restaurant with a group of 6 for lunch. The seating was a bit tight, but everything else was excellent. The bread and olive oil were of noticeably high quality, the food was delicious and fresh, and the service was just fantastic. I would highly recommend this restaurant for groups, or even just couples looking for a little up-scale gem."

  • "Decent outing but our clothing smelled terribly after eating here. They need to do something about the ventilation."

  • "Definite neighborhood gem! Wonderful waitstaff. Nice selection of wines. And each entree was delicious! The one slice of pizza I couldn't finish was even better the next day."
