    Being first timers to this restaurant, we were pleasantly surprised by the decor, the menu variety and the quality of the food, especially the fresh pasta. Service was great, food was excellent and I would certainly return again now that I have experienced this restaurant for the first time. Staff was very attentive but not too much so, which made the experience even more enjoyable!

    Four of us dined there on a Sat evening. Worst experience at a restaurant ever. Three of us didn't get drinks until AFTER our entrees were brought to us. Our entrees were brought out one at a time, with long times in between. So our food didn't get cold, we each went ahead and ate . That meant none of us ate together! We asked to see a manager twice and he never came. Don't waste your time or money- the frustration isn't worth it!

    The food here was delicious. However the service left much to be desired. For being open a year, the staff all seemed like new-hires and poorly trained. We waited 20 minutes for our drinks to finally be made from the bar, a complimentary bread basket was never brought to our table though we could see others receiving theirs, and we were blatantly told that if we wanted our food to be out within the next 20-30 minutes that we should order right then and there, among other smaller service issues. It's a shame that the staff was so poorly prepared as I would love to return simply for the delicious pasta dishes.

    The restaurant is gorgeous, staff friendly but food was meh and silverware was dirty. We had the lobster bisque-too salty / bland; cheese calzone which was undercooked /doughy; parpadelle pasta with red sauce & meatballs which looked great when it came out, however, it was cold. We were one of only a handful of tables at lunch so it was not as if the waitress was busy and the food had been sitting there. The only down side to our waitress was that she kept walking away while we were talking. We had several requests when the food came (sauce, cheese, clean utensils) and had to ask her back several times to finish talking. It has potential and just needs better management /qc.

    Everything about La Tagliatella is great... Except the food, which is not bad. The service was great, our waitress was funny and helpful. She used a cool little gadget to take our order. The decor is fun to look at and the location is great. Nice open windows to see out into epicenter. The menu was great, but the food wasn't on par with the rest of the scene. Don't get me wrong, it was ok... Just not as great as I was expecting. The noodles were cooked well and homemade... But the sauce. First; could have given us more than a tablespoon of sauce... And, could have been a little more flavorful.. Also, get rid of those rolls! Need to have real Italian bread! More sauce, better bread. Sure go check it out.

    We enjoyed the hand-crafted pastas. It's nice to have something a little different from the norm. Also fresh pasta make such a lighter meal and does not sit so heavy, so we had more room for wine!

    Good location in Epicenter. The host greeted us warmly, the server was good at explaining the menu. The pasta was cooked properly, but it was very heavy and overly starchy. It seemed very thick for a papperadelle. The sauce was good, but not great. I was excited about having fresh pasta, but it didn't deliver on texture.

    Nice downtown location. Caesar salad very good with or without Anchovies and large enough to share. Hot bread, fresh from the oven is a nice touch. 3 pasta dishes of varying quality. The Bolognese sauce was a bit too sweet, but otherwise the pasta dishes were piping hot with rich, creamy carbonara and tender pasta. Wine list a bit anemic.

    Service was very good but food was great in some dishes but not in others. We shared a salad which was excellent and plenty for two people. I had their signature pasta dish which was very good. My husband ordered the veal scallopinni and it was not good at all. The pieces were too flat and way over cooked and the asparagus was under cooked and hard. We mentioned this to our waiter and they were nice to take off his dish from our bill. The atmosphere was nice and we will probably go again but not order the veal dish!

    The restaurant is absolutely stunning and the staff are very personable and sweet. We had reservations (which were not needed, even on Feb 14). They walked us through a very empty restaurant to seat us next to a table that has water under it, wet floor signs, and a mop. The next few minutes we enjoyed watching someone clean up. We order drinks, that we were told were $5 and ended up being $12. The focaccia bread basket app was not worth it. Our drinks were GREAT! I had a pizza that sounded great, she had pasta. Both were very plain and something I could make at home but still good. This place is fine for a special occasion but I wouldn't eat there again just because it's not worth the money.

    Inattentive service, restaurant chain style food, and a painfully slow and unorganized bar staff. We waited a long time before our first round of drinks finally arived to the table. Our food came out cold (my order was wrong), and of course they were out of the one desert we wanted. You are better off at Olive Garden.

    We made a reservation for after The Panthers/Jets game. We arrived at 7:30pm and no one was present at the host desk. We waited and were acknowledged by no one. It was not busy so we decided to enter the bar area tables hoping for dinner. Surprisingly, no one acknowledged us there either. The restaurant was practically empty so it's concerning to me how we managed to slip through the cracks. Unfortunately, we left after 15 minutes of being ignored.

    Full disclosure, I had a group of 5 for an 8:30pm reservation on a Tuesday night and the restaurant was dead. The food was average AT BEST and to top it off, it came out at vastly different times. The meatballs were crusty on the bottom and had clearly been sitting for an extended period of time.The restaurant in general is nice but they have not gotten into a ryythm at all (no bitters - wait, then the waitress said she had some that shed brought from home-, ran out of onions and had to come back to my brother to tell him his dish (which was terrible anyway) wouldn't have them after he'd already ordered, no craft beer as the menu states because as the waitress put it "they just keep forgetting to order it). What a shame given its location.

    I was promptly seated upon arrival for my reservation. I don't know if the waitress was waiting for my entire party to show up before asking me if I needed a drink but I probably sat there for 15 minutes by myself and was not once approached by waitstaff. Then after half my party arrived, I think we still didn't get asked for our drink order for another 20 minutes or so. However, the waitress was knowledgeable about the menu and very friendly. Once taking our orders, the service was quick and food was good. I was also impressed that the waitress was able to split the bill for us with accuracy to what everyone ordered. The only weird part was one of the guy waitstaff took our picture with his personal phone without asking us for permission.
