We had one of best experiences ever when we had Easter dinner there. Everything, the food, service, the ambiance was just perfect. We have eaten there before and it is always a great experience.

This place is a hidden gem in a strip mall. Food was excellent, it's BYOB with a liquor store a few steps away. The menu is eclectic - something for everyone. Whenever I go out and the restaurant offers a "specials" menu, I look no further. My friend and I each ordered a special sushi roll as an appetizer, then entrees off the Specials menu. We left a little room for dessert. The staff was great, and the ambiance was nice - kinda like a greenhouse. You definitely need to make a reservation, we went on a Friday and although it was open when we got there @ 5:45pm, all the tables filled quickly. They also seem to do a busy take-out service. We did not feel rushed but we were mindful of the time. I will definitely go back! It was only a 30 min drive for us, I'd go even if it was an hour away.

Honestly none of the food really knocked my socks off. Everything was good but nothing was amazing. We had the calamari, wife had chicken Diane I believe it was, and I had the veal.

The food was fabulous. Our waiter Victor was very attentive. This dinner was a get together for birthday celebration for several girl friends. Everyone's dinner was outstanding. Highly recommend the seafood with linquine if you like seafood. This is one our favorite places to go for brunch or dinner.

First time here. We were a little put off when we first arrived as noise level was off the charts. In didn't help place was packed and a large loud group was next to us. Our server was attentive and helpful. Minor special requests were handled easily. Warm rolls were excellent. Food was first rate, obviously freshly prepared and entrees served hot. It's a byob which helps with cost. Thanks for a nice evening.

This is one of my favorite local eateries. Food is always fresh and service is always great! Our one gripe this visit was in what was supposedly out of attentiveness, our server (Tina - who other than this was actually very pleasant) first brought the bill without us asking for it (my all time pet peeve in any restaurant) because we said we were finishing our wine and didn’t want dessert - what if we had wanted espresso? Then asked multiple times if we were ok or needed anything else... again I get being attentive but it almost felt like she just wanted to Close out the tab despite various empty tables. We finally asked her if she needed the table because she kept asking if we needed anything else and she said no, and apologized.l as she was just trying to be attentive. We ordered espresso and asked for the bill. Please note despite this, a nearly 20% tip was left as the food was delicious as always and like I said, in general, service was fine. I personally don’t like to feel rushed or pressured to order something more or presented with a bill unless I ask for it. I am conscious and considerate enough to not occupy a table while nursing wine if a restaurant is full and waiting for tables to clear up to seat others, however that was not the case here.

When we arrived we told the manager that we had a reservation and were seated quickly. Apparently, he must not have let OpenTable know, since we got an email saying we missed our reservation. I’m not surprised by the lack of attention to detail, since after we were seated we noticed that guests were waiting at the entrance and not being serviced. The manager was in the back room talking to two guys who were not guests. The young hostess, who I guess is not allowed to seat guests, was trying to get the manager’s attention, but he ignored her for a few minutes. I guess talking to those two guys was more important than taking care of customers.

This is not what I’d call a high class restaurant. It is in a strip mall and the ambiance is nothing special, but their meals are pretty expensive. Also, my wife ordered a Buffalo chicken flat bread and the chicken was piled on so high you could not see the flat bread. I guess it sounds weird to be complaining about too much chicken, but meals should have the right proportion and this flat bread was really ridiculous.

There are plenty of good, reasonably priced Italian restaurants around, so we will not be back for again.
