Great food and service!A bit pricey, but worh it. T he service was outstanding! Enjoyed the brunch buffet -- great selections and all food was replaced and refreshed often.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBrought wife/Mom there forBrought wife/Mom there for Mother's Day buffet. Crowded, noisy but expected. Food was very good, especially the desserts. Our server, Jason, was attentive, prompt and courteous despite the crowd. Can't wait to go back for a non-special event meal. Would recommend to friend or co-worker.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall decent experienceWent to celebrate Mother's Day, and had a really good time. The service was exceptional, the food came out quickly enough, but they were out of some key items surprisingly early. The dish my mother ordered,Linguini de mare, was to have shrimp and scallops....they were out of scallops....at 6:30 pm! I had one of their chicken dishes, and the chicken was fairly good, but dry. None of these factors will keep me away, however, as they have always delivered a great dining experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchWhen I made the reservation via OpenTable I wish I had known that they had seating upstairs. Had I known I would have called the restaurant directly to request that we not be seated up there. My Mom felt overwhelmed by the stairs and it was far away and out of sight from the buffet. I think if we had been seated downstairs we all would have made more trips than we did and my children (10 and 12) could have been more independent. I must say the staff was very friendly and attentive when we were there for Mother's Day brunch and went out of their way to offer and provide help carrying plates upstairs for my Mom. We were impressed!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNeeds cappuccinoService was great as was the food. Coffee is over priced and lousy. What no cappuccino?5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceExcellent food, and service.we ordered a carpaccio for appetizer and it was terrific! I will definitely go back.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't go wrong!This friendly restaurant has now become our neighborhood favorite and we are never disappointed. The food is always very good and the service excellent. I don't usually order dessert but on this last visit was excited to see the Fig & Almond Crostata listed and couldn't resist. It was fabulous - I hope it remains on the menu for a long time! The half price wine (all bottles) on Mondays is a great deal.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat PlaceThis place has Great food and Great Atmosphere. Will def be back!!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good. However, whenVery good. However, when this place first opened, they changed their menu frequently, and as it was a small menu, the new options were nice to see every few weeks. The menu hasn't changed in six months, with only two or three pasta dishes, they need to change it up a bit more frequently.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMore of the same consistentMore of the same consistent menu and execution. Very nice place for Sunday brunch4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMoverall, it was a very pleasantoverall, it was a very pleasant dining experience. Saturday nights are crowded, but we received excellent service. The food was prepared well and was tasty. The calamari appetizer was excellent, as well as the sauce it was served with. We would definitely go again to try some of the other dinner choices.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best service we have hadThe best service we have had in a long time from the host to the wait staff.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMHaving been many time thisHaving been many time this is a fun place in North Hills area. Good food and a nice outdoor dining spot. Although on a pass through for cars it is also a people watching spot.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food and great atmosphere.Good food and great atmosphere. Menu changes frequently and service is fantastic. Highly recommend this restaurant because of the value, food, atmosphere and location right off Six Forks and 440.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMafter feeling ignored forafter feeling ignored for abt 5 minutes, we finally got someone's attn ( a man, not dressed as a server) who attempted to make up for the first 5 minutes w/ very good attention.
we felt the prices were too high for italian food that wasn't extraordinary, and would not return if we didn't have a coupon.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband does not care forMy husband does not care for lentils but changed his mind when he tasted these.Loved them. The gnocchi were so light and the sauce was the perfect topping.The tomato caper topping on the salmon was a real surprise so very tasty.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great. The serviceThe food was great. The service was wonderful for our 12 person group.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good choiceWe were looking for a great brunch experience for Easter, and as we love Mia Francesca for dinner, it was a natural choice. Food was really good. Standard brunch offerings were good. The shrimp and grits was probably the least notable of all of the choices. Salmon was tasty. The chicken piccata was rather good, though lacking the zing that my own brings...but when catering to a large buffet crowd, it's understandable. Now for desserts...the berry tart and the lemon bars were outstanding.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMJ is the best bartender.MJ is the best bartender. Made eating at the bar fun. Would go back to just have him wait on us. Food is always great3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is good, service veryFood is good, service very good. The one thing I do not like is they actually put anchovies on the caesar salad, I know that anchovies are part of the dressing but the anchovies over power the salad here. Pizza is good not great. The other dishes are very good.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA nice place. Menu pricesA nice place. Menu prices a little higher than called for I think. Could really use about $2000 of professionally designed and installed acoustical treatments - very tinny, flinty echoey place at times. I would go back to explore their full range of offerings.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMy inlaws were in town andMy inlaws were in town and I wanted a 'nice' place to take them and my parents out for a family dinner with my children. There were eight of us and everyone's food was excellent. The portions were more than generous, the price reasonable, and the service was excellent. We'll be returning for ordinary days. Soon.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service, menu andExcellent service, menu and taste at a reasonable price3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent brunch! Great varietyExcellent brunch! Great variety on the menu. All 3 of us ordered something completely different and all loved our food! Delicious, fresh, wonderful!! Can't wait to come back for dinner some time soon!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was tasty. Only minorFood was tasty. Only minor complaint: the calamari spent a little too much time in the fryer, but was delivered piping hot as it should be. My fish was very good in flavor, but I would have liked a little larger piece for the $28 tag and little else except for a few greens on the plate. Service was attentive.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AM.......love it more each visit!Just continues to get better and better, if that's possible!! Visited twice this week - took friends one night, husband and teenaged granddaughter another - everyone, every age group, loves this great restaurant. Menu has changed a bit - wine list now includes more choices, some quite affordable, others really topnotch...........at a price of course! Special one night was the eggplant parmigiano which was excellent - perhaps should be available every night! Pasta always cooked al dente which is the best way. Staff - accolades to all who served us, they are definitely the best - well-trained, a pleasure to talk to. We love this restaurant and of course will be going back as often as possible.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
