A word from Undici
Undici is the recreation of a Tuscan farmhouse. The stone, woods, plaster and tile are all reminiscent of an era passed. The cuisine consists of the freshest quality ingredients available at market. This allows us to change our menus daily to provide continuing freshness and change. The menu is truly rustic Italian. All of our pasta,including gnocchi and ravioli, are homemade daily using only Caputo Italian flour.

    Well done Undici!! Everything is spot on from the bar, food and drinks to service and ambiance! Excellent food with seasonal menu items, extensive wine list & professional & friendly staff!! Decor makes you feel like you're dining in Italy!! Although I like it, some may say the lighting is too dim. A bit pricey but worth every penny!! Look for mid week specials & make reservations especially on weekends!

    A nice surprise- have driven by this place for years and had never been inside. Excellent salad, scrumptious pizza- super thin crust- totally worth it. Wine list could be expanded. Very attentive service and rustic, but nice decor. Will definitely return. Very large bar - nice place to relax too!

    Our friends recommended this place to us. We were there on a Saturday night and it was packed. It was very loud and noisy, so we couldn't really have a full on conversation. It was also quite warm inside. However, the service was fast and good and the food was quite tasty. I would definitely go back.

    Food and service were top notch, and expected based on past visits. But this time we brought the kids (1 and 5 yrs old). We took a space at a beautiful wood table outside, which was rustic and charming. Having kids was no problem, even during the 7pm dinner rush when the place was busy.

    The perfect place to eat if you enjoy outdoor dining on a summer evening. Food and service was excellent. Would recommend the prosciutto and melon for an appetizer and the lasagna for an entrée. Only frustrating thing....which was frustrating, was that we had an 8:30pm reservation and the table was not ready until 9:00pm.

    We've been to Undici countless times. We used to live close by, and went more frequently. It is a busy place and very dark. Almost cave-like. We love the service and the food is always consistent. Their menu changes with the seasons and while I usually ate grilled shrimp, it was no longer available. I tried one of their aged steaks. I am no expert on steaks and I eat them well done. I must say it was the most delicious steak I've ever eaten!!! Well work the price. We always get the biscotti. Best anywhere and worth the treat!!!

    Amazing food with an incredible wine list. Exceptional decor to capture a true Tuscan farm house for al fresco dining. I rated the noise level as energetic and found that to be the only flaw. It was exceptionally loud and our dining experience was limted in conversation, but the overall experience was fantastic!

    Went for a casual late dinner on the 4th of July. Restaurant was very noisy - absolutely impossible to have a conversation with the family. basically either had to yell across the table or sit in silence. Ordered a bowl of pasta - Amatriciana - which has few ingredients and is inexpensive to prepare - received a half of a bowl and was charged about $25??!! Asked the server if this was an entree portion and he said yes. Two bowls of pasta, one salad and one glass of wine - $120. Ridiculous. We had better food in Rome for less money, for pete's sake.

    When we stepped in, I was impressed by the decor, and really wanted to like it here. The food prices were way over the top for the slightly above average quality. The wine list is a collosal annoyance, unless you are very familiar with italian wine, or speak italian. Service was fine, but a little too insistant on filling water/wine glasses after a sip was taken.
