The food and service were very good. We had the Calamari (grilled) for an appetizer and it was terrific. Both of our meals (Lobster Ravioli and Valetto Parmesan) were very flavorful. We really enjoyed the meal and reminded ourselves to visit more frequently to try other menu options.

It was a great eating experience. The only negative was the very high noise level. I couldn't hear the companion sitting next to me.

Great meal, exceptional server….room volume was too loud. Acoustics will be what they are, but it was difficult to converse at the table due to the din.

Very disappointing food quality for restaurant that rates $$$$ expense level. Very indifferent and inattentive waitstaff. If we didn't waive at them to receive the bill, who knows how much longer it would have taken. All in all , an unjustifiably ,snobby experience !
