Our small birthday party could not have been better served. Preprinted menues with our choices preplanned made selections quick & easy and service could not have been better. A big hurrah for the staff and excellent kitchen. We will return!

Been here before and service was much better. Maybe Monday nights are stressful for them since many restaurants are not open Mondays...food was great though. Just don't go on a Monday.

The wait staff are attentive but do not hover which is nice. Music is soft. We always dine early so the noise level is good.

Great welcome with the owner having a long chat with us which made us feel very welcome indeed. Explanation of the specials was a little garbled but no worries as we had selected from the menu - pasta was perfectly al dente and delicious - opted for desserts, the creme brûlée was a little runny where it should have been set but the flavour was superb. All in all a good dining experience and can recommend this place to dine

I always love the food here and the service team is remarkably attentive and pleasant. Make sure you have plenty of TIME when you go to this restaurant. You'll love everything you taste, it just will be a while before you get to taste it!

Food was decent but service was terrible. This was our first visit and we will not be returning. Our server had an attitude from the moment we ordered a bottle of wine, until we left, but I guess lucky for us he rarely visited our table, which really means he was completely inattentive. There are plenty of restaurants that serve great Italian food and have great service to go with it, so go there instead and skip this place.

We were celebrating my boyfriend’s birthday and we couldn’t decide if we wanted the chocolate cake or the tiramisu... they gave us both! (And did not charge us) our experience was great, the food was good, especially my plate, raviolis stuffed with ricotta cheese and spinach in Alfredo sauce. We are definitely going back.

The restaurant was initially welcoming but as the restaurant filled up any level of service disappeared. Our waiter could not be found. The owners schmoozed with their buddies but we’re indifferent to our efforts to get even minimal service. We cut our evening short and then I had to leave the table to find our waiter to get the bill. I would rather swallow broken glass than dine there again.

Excellent pasta. Veal saltimbocca was awful. One of the worst I have ever had. The desserts do not include gelato or tartuffo making the whole experience mediocre at best. I will definitely not return.

The restaurant is broken up into two areas -- the bar area and the dining room. While there were no booths per se, they did have enough spaces between tables so as not to feel crowded. Our very personable server took our drink order and went over the specials. The portobello mushroom Balsamico appetizer was amazing with the glaze and Gorgonzola cheese. My wife is very picky about pasta and meat sauce. She was really impressed (and that's saying something!). My chicken with artichokes, rosemary and a white wine sauce was excellent. We'll be back!
