Seated immediately at the table of my preference. Service very good. Food excellent. Best overall restaurant in the area. Prices are a little high, but top notch food.

The service was slow, the food was fantastic. The food prices are appropriate. The only issue (which we did not mention) was we made a reservation and they had us at a table out at the patio/bar area not the restaurant. I felt the service was not as good out there as inside the restaurant would have been and we were forgotten about.

Made a reservation for mothers day-when we arrived there were only 3 tables occupied-hostess said she had to check to see if our table was ready took us into the dinning and said OOPs something is wrong with my computer stand here and we will set you up-So there were empty tables but no we stood with our elderly aunt until they set the table with a dirty table cloth and dirty glasses-we had asked for a table in the back or isolated because our aunt is hearing impaired but we were sat in the noisy middle. As we sat waiting for 10 minutes we had just decided to leave and go to the diner down the street when our wonderful waitress Jessica arrived to save the day-she could not believe we didn't even have menus! Although we were glad we stayed cause our server was awesome and the food was good I doubt we will ever go back this is the second bad experience we have had here! And to make it worse the manager went to every table but OURS to see how everyone's meals were! I know it was mothers day but the restaurant did not seem overly crazy busy so we were disappointed!

Had reservation for 2, arrived at 1:50 - restaurant was not busy but we had to wait until 2:15 to be seated. People who arrived after us were seated but our table needed napkins we were told. Well the entire bar area was empty and every table had napkins - maybe we were getting a nice table - NO SAT OUTSIDE THE KITCHEN. Once I complained to the manager about our table needing napkins and offered to get them from the bar area we were seated.

Our waiter was amazing! Jake made the experience bearable. We had come for lunch but received dinner menus. I had checked the website multiple times to make sure there was not a special Mother's Day menu and there was not. Nothing indicated dinner all day. We were looking for lunch, because we had dinner to attend later that day.

Food while plentiful was too spicy. Spicy is fine, if you indicate that on your menu. Luckily Jake kept the drinks flowing, which is great to increase your overall bill.

What we thought was lunch for 3 cost almost $150 (including tip, again Jake was wonderful and this was not his fault)

The waitress was nice and professional but it took entirely too long for everything. I times how long it would take to get our desert and it took 20 minutes. Food and atmosphere was nice. Service time was poor.

I make a point to eat here every time I'm in the area for work. It never disappoints. My colleague and I were both pleased with our entrees and the dessert and the only complaint either of us has is that the food was so good we ate too much. The server was knowledgeable, friendly, energetic and enhanced the dining experience. She gave us plenty of attention without being intrusive on our business conversation. I would recommend this place for anyone who wants a fabulous meal at a reasonable price. The atmosphere is pleasant enough for a romantic dinner and quiet enough to have conversation without talking so loud that everyone in the vicinity can hear.

The ravioli was excellent. The gnocci, however, was a bit tough. Caesar salad was delicious, and bread was very good. The prices on many of the entrees were very high. The service was excellent.

This is our favorite restaurant. Great food with casual dining in the lounge. The Italian market is connected to the restaurant with lots of take out and make-at-home options. We always leave with a lot of leftovers.

My only comment is that I had asked that the Mixed Vegetables be cooked soft. They were not cooked as asked and the "mix" vegetables ended up being 80% green beans. The rest of the meal was very good.
