    I would totally give this place a five star review but the waiters needed some training. They reached over the table numerous times when they could have gone around. They were attentive but amateurs. The food and ambience was excellent.

    Fresh and delicious, from our caprese and ceasar salads, to our pumpkin ravioli and veal dishes. Pleasant servers, comfortable restaurant. Our only complaint is that our servers were a little too eager to clear the table, having taken our bread and dip before we were finished, and attempting to take our salads as well. Excellent cappuccino too! We will definitely return.

    We've dined at Uva 7 times in the past year and it is consistently an enjoyable experience. Paula greets us when we arrive and ensures we are seated at our favorite table (in a quiet corner). After a delicious meal, Sal (Owner) stops by to say "hello" and shares a taste of his specialty dessert. A fun place for dinner whether it's two or ten of us dining. We look forward to returning again.

    Located in a strip mall, you wouldn't expect the quality of the food, service and ambiance inside, but it's all there. This was our fourth visit, and we have never been disappointed. The service personnel are exceptionally professional, interacting when you want them to and keeping their distance when appropriate. The menu, as one of our dining partners mentioned, contains multiple and exceptional choices to keep you coming back to try what's next - all without disappointment. We've never met the talented chef, but wouldn't be surprised to find him on a television show of his own. It's a bit noisy, so it doesn't fit the bill for a quiet, solitary romantic dinner. However, the noise is from a friendly and happy crowd that comes from everyone being treated immensely. It is becoming known, so reservations are recommended.

    While the food is good, the noise level on nights when there is entertainment, is too high. You cannot have a conversation with the people at your table. Go when there is no singer and you will enjoy it more.

    My wife and I stopped by for a late lunch, only two other tables were occupied. We had a Restaurant.com certificate, otherwise we never would have known it was there. The place is very nicely appointed and the staff are friendly, knowledgeable and efficient, without being overbearing. The food, from antipasti platter for two, through seafood risotto and baked salmon, to a shared large chocolate brownie with ice cream, was simply outstanding. We hadn't realized it was BYOB, or we would have brought some libation(s) of our own. Because it was lunch menu time, we even had the rather pleasant problem of trying to get the bill up to the $50 minimum required in order to redeem our $25 certificate, but we managed. Slate flooring begets some noise.

    The frutti di mari special appetizer was a disappointment. The broth was very good;5 mussels (3 tasted old) 3 clams 2 shrimp and 1 scallop for $13.00. Clams were good; shrimp slightly over cooked,scallop cooked correctly. Entrée, the pork chop special. Nice size bone in chop stuffed with prosciutto & mozzarella over broccoli di rapi & potatoes. Pork cooked perfectly, flavorful & juicy. Broccoli di rapi & potatoes were flavorful,right amount of garlic. Excellent! Key lime pie acceptable,nothing special. Espresso & coffee good. After dinner aperitif offered & gladly accepted. Service excellent & friendly. Tables a little tight. Will return but will stay away from the seafood.

    This was our 1st time here, make sure to make a reservation as the place was packed! Decent size BYOB in bucks, service was great, at least 3 different people were waiting on our table. Had the beef carpaccio for app & it was delish. I had vegetali veal and my husband had the lamb chop special. Everything was cooked right and tasted delish. Split pumpkin cheesecake and key lime pie for dessert (small portions) but both were great. Only disappointment was the cold bland bread (were Italian and enjoy good/warm bread to start) Tax and tip 86.00 minus the 25 gift card. We will def be back again soon! Also noticed they have outdoor seating for when the weather gets warm, cant wait for that!

    Walter, our waiter, was top-notch. Menu varied with super specials. Salads large enough to share. Had seafood cannelloni special which was superb. A bit pricey but save money with Restaurant.com gift certificate & is a BYOB, so bring along a nice bottle. Also have live music on Saturday evenings.

    The food was outstanding and the experience was great and would have been perfect except......the noise level was very high and it was hard to hold a conversation. Adding to the noise level was an awesome singer, howver, she should have turned down the volume. Also adding to the noise level was the kitchen and wait staff. Ask for a table away from the kitchen opening and it may be a bit less hectic and loud. We did not appreciate seeing the kitchen and hearing the noise during out dinner. We will be back and waking for a table away from the kitchen.

    Great dinner at UVA! The person who seated us could not have been any nicer - she greeted us with a smile, chatted with us, and was simply lovely. The food was delicious...we thoroughly enjoyed all we had, from start to finish. Our waiter was very pleasant, although there were specials he did not share with us (which we heard him tell the table next to us after we had already received our meals). One bus person insisted on taking things off of our table without asking if we were finished. She then continue to stop at the table next to us to chat, disrupting the conversation at our table. That aside, we did have a great dinner at UVA and will definitely try it again!

    My wife and I have had a couple of great meals at UVA. So when our friends asked us to get together and pick the spot we knew where wanted to take them. UVA did not disappoint. The food was outstanding, service terrific and the piano player and his music made for another fantastic evening. If you can...go to UVA. You won't be disappointed.

    We celebrated our son's 40th birthday there. The food was fabulous, great presentation, lovely décor, friendly & attentive staff. BYOB. An upscale restaurant in a strip mall. Open, tables are not squashed together. My 9 yr old grandson rated the restroom a 10! The soup was delicious (Lobster Bisque). Our entrees were veal, salmon, NY strip steak. All were perfect and delicious. They offer specials and a selection for kids. Desserts were also very good. A little pricey, but worth it. I will definitely return in the near future.

    Made a reservation on line and received a call that due to a large private party that we could either move the time back or sit on the patio. Normally I would have gone for the patio but my parents are very indoor people so we moved the time back. The regular menu was much better than what is available on holidays. (Last time). Service was very good. I ordered the soft shell crabs which were a bit out of season. Everyone liked the place so it was a success.

    Great Italian food. Very flavorfull and not your typical strip mall "American" Italian. BYOB which is great too. It is a little loud, so if you are looking for a quiet, romantic place this may not be for you. They have a nice outside courtyard, but I didn't get to eat there this time.

    We stumbled across this establishment by accident, and decided to give it a try for date night. The food was superb, and exceeded our expectations at every course. Usually, Italian restaurants miss the mark in my opinion. But the food was excellent, and authentic. We had the antipasto to start with, and I would highly recommend it. My husband had the spinach gnocchi, which were fluffy and light, not the dense dough bullets we've had elsewhere. I had the tuna special for the evening, cooked perfectly medium rare, served over a bed of crab risotto with garlic sauteed spinach. It was the best tuna I've eaten in a restaurant. Superb on every level.

    We went on a Saturday night over July 4th weekend. The restaurant was not busy due to the holiday weekend. We sat outside on the patio which was wonderful. The weather was incredible with low humidity. It was secluded by trees and plants, which they did a great job on. The seating with big umbrellas was very comfortable too. I ordered the fish that was the special that evening. Our waiter recommended it and he was right on target. It was absolutely delicious! I wish I could remember the name of it, but I never heard of it before so I've forgotten the name....sorry. It was a nice white fish. The vegetable were done very nicely. Also had a tasty arugula salad. Have eaten inside many times and the food has always been great!

    I have been visiting Uva for a few years even when it was Il gattapardo and every experience has been a triumph. Although the noise level can be somewhat loud during a full house (which is often I'm sure), the food, ambience especially the piano music and service make it all worthwhile.

    UVA remains one of our favorite restaurants; service is always great and all staff are professional and pleasant. But I suppose everyone has an off day; the special last week of soft shell crabs was described to us as "lightly breaded and sautéed". However, they were heavily breaded and fried; if not for the shape of the crab, it was difficult to tell what we were eating. This won't keep us from Uva but was a disappointment.

    Food was good. Service was slow. Waiter never came around to check on table. Water never refilled drinks.. Always had to find waiter if we wanted anything. When we asked for a drink refill & more water he forgot. Layout is poor. Very unromantic for fine dining. Was like eating in a cafeteria. Noise level very high. Hard to have a conversation at the table. The food was the only plus about the resaurant. A bit pricey. It's a byob and dinner for 2 cost us $135.00
