I have been 3 times now and both the first two times were decent. Service is always slow but the food this time was phoned in. The linguini was supposed to come with these beautiful gulf shrimp that are large and succulent. They are normally seasoned. This time I received unaeasoned salad shrimp in my pasta. I don’t know if they were out of the normal shrimp but it was not good. The pasta itself was fine but nothing special. My friends lasagna was gross and they served us wine in water glasses. I don’t think I will be rushing back.

Food and Atmosphere was great! Service was terrible. Wish I got the guys name but he disappeared and never came back. Hostess ran our card so we could get on to our show. Didn't want to be late. Take that guy out of the equation and all was good!

The food and atmosphere was great. Our specific waitress was not very attentive and did not introduce herself or give us a run down of how the menu worked. After asking another waiter he did take the time to explain the menu and portion sizes.

Our table was ready when we got there! Such a cute place. The food was great! My only complaint is it would take about 15-20 minutes to get our drinks every time we ordered one. They weren't overly busy, so I thought was very slow.

This was our second visit and it was just as good as our first time! The selection is varied and it was hard to choose what we wanted to eat. So we tried a few dishes and shared. We started with the carpaccio salad with shaved parmesan. Delicious. Second was the meatball appetizer. Wow. I could just eat those all the time. For the dinner dish we shared some rigatoni with pistachio pesto. That was amazing. I wish we had room for desert.

Made a 12:30 reservation for 6 for a brunch with friends. Our table sat uncleared and available for 30 min right in front of us before they finally cleaned it and allowed us to sit. The service was slow. Drinks took 20 min to get and the food is subpar. We joked after we ordered drinks that we should go ahead and order the next round in advance. Good delivery for 6 wasn't even close to being delivered at the same time so some friends awkwardly sat with their empty place settings while others started eating. The server was nice but the rest was truly awful.

Extremely slow service, both at the bar and at our table. While sitting at the bar, servers kept coming over to us with plates of food asking if it was ours...it wasn't. The need to get their together. Either hire better staff or have a better system of how to deliver food to the right guest.

My husband and I both got sick after eating here, we think it was the fried olives on the app menu. Also, we ordered spaghetti and meatballs for the kids and neither could eat it bc it was too spicey. Service was so slow and there were only like 3 other full tables in there. Not happy and won't be returning back. Bummer!

Finally decided to come in on my birthday and it was AMAZING! Friendly greeting at the front door; the hostess or Manager had great energy and a beautiful smile . I sat at the bar and drank a glass of vino Rossi while I waited for my friends to arrive. The bartender again was very friendly and knew his wines well. I ordered the fried olives and the food runner dropped them off with a different bar patron - the bartender quickly caught it and I only got to share one Olive with him haha I found it hilarious truth be told.
Friends arrived and we were taken to our table. I had made the reservation for a table inside not knowing of their patio would be cool enough to enjoy dinner. Upon arriving I did ask if it was possible to amend that but unfortunately it didn't happen. No big deal though, we sat at a table near the bar- large crowd came in and stood next to us while we ate- small suggestion would be to spread the floor and seat tables away from the bar first when possible.
Non of that really mattered because our waitress was A ROCKSTAR! Very friendly , always smiled, very attentive and on top of every detail. We Never had an empty water glass! 👏🏼 She described the food items very well and made great suggestions.
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE how AMERICANO uses IG . We made our food choices heavily based on the pictures we found on IG.
We shared the cauliflower salad - very large portion enough for 3 of us to have two portions each .
For pastas we had the Riggatoni , lasagna, and linguini . All were great but the linguini took the win for best of.
For the main course we shared the seared scallops- once again we were not disappointed
Dessert was once again a variety of 3 of their desserts - tiramisu- peach crostata, and the ricotta cheesecake.
Little disappointed that they could Not make a cappuccino but Settled for the espresso
Will most definitely be back!

We arrived at 7 pm and our table was waiting. This was a Saturday night and things were slow. By 8 pm our meal had arrived and the place was better than half filled. While the place was clean and attractive, there is nothing to absorb the sound. So it got louder and louder. Loud is not our cup of tea. We were shouting at our guests at a table for four. Fortunately they did not have music to add to the ambiance which would have made it worse.a Will we go back? No. There are quieter places to enjoy on a Saturday night.

Brunch on Sunday. Terrible service. Over priced. There's no reason to ever go back to this resturant. They need to step up their game if they are going to compete in Dallas. Being next to the Joule Hotel isn't going to save you! I've experienced better abience at Smash Burger.

I came to this neighborhood favorite with my bestie for a weekday friend date!! A perfect little meal to have drinks and catch up, oh and of course eat! He had the lasagna and the I remember being jealous of his order, but I did have the lighter pasta dish and I was perfectly content! I love their menu and the atmosphere. I do remember the waiter was fantastic, we was super friendly and not in the annoying in your business way.

Loved the ambiance of the place. My friends and I split a small plate, a salad and a pizza. The garden salad was flavorful and great combination of ingredients. the 4 mushroom pizza also was well flavored. The small plate we got was the squash blossom and was a bit lacking. Overall great place and great service!
