It’s a nice looking place but the food lacked, specially for the price. Also, no drink menu on Valentines Day.
Why?

The food was exceptional. I loved everything I order. However I made reservations for 7 and had to wait about an extra 10 minutes to be seated. It took them forever to bring out everything that was ordered. Over all I spent over 3 hours on the restaurant and most of the time was spent waiting.

My girlfriend and I had 7PM reservations and were seated at approximately 715PM. We were a few minutes late, so called ahead of time. We ordered drinks and they were delivered in a timely manner....the experience went down-hill from there.
We were seated in the back bar area and apparently not assigned a single wait staff/ point of contact which may explain why we were really not waited on without having to get up and ask for the rest of the evening. We were brought cold bread and butter an no utensils. Our order wasn't taken until 815ish and by 9 we still did not have entrees. Staff were standoffish and rude, - not wanting to be bothered. The couple in the next table left without food at approximately 830PM and my girlfriend and I left at 900PM without having eaten. Just a disaster.

We went out for Valentine’s dinner and the place was nice, definitely busy. Service was slow and we didn’t even get bread for about 30min after we sat down, or napkins. I’m not blaming the servers because he was cool. It was probably just a busy day for them. Appetizers were good, but the entrees came and I ordered the Wellington medium. When I got it served it was raw not medium and the pastry was undercooked. I didn’t wanna be a dick and send it back but I did mention it to the server who apologized. I believe he also took some drinks off the bill for the error. I would go again but I was disappointed.

It was “Valentine’s Day Weekend,” so extra busy, but food was delicious and waiter was extremely gracious and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this restaurant for a good Italian meal and a great wine selection. This was not my first time; always look forward to returning when I can.

We love the food and the wine list. Ordered the Dover sole and got treated to a table-side service (just for plating, not cooking this time). It was fun! Have had the tableside service for the fett. alfredo and the Steak Diane. Bring your own bananas and they will do Bananas Foster at the table for you for dessert, even when not on the menu! Great service!

Everything was amazing. Atmosphere was quite and inviting. Food was delicious the steak was so tender. Only complaint was that we were not a fan of the dessert. We’ve had better cannolis but overall a great place to go for dinner. We be back

Enjoyed the Providence Restaurant Week 3-course special. Great options, great value, great food! High quality service as always and quiet fine dining at its best. Can’t go wrong with the veal parm and surf and turf, cooked perfectly and hearty portions. Seafood croquette app well worth the extra $2 - delicious. We will be back!

We all did Restaurant Weeks specials and found that the tuna was not cooked as described. The outside edges were hard and dry and the center of the triangular shaped pieces were cooked as ordered at medium rare. Perhaps a different shaped cut would make meeting a diner’s cooking request better. Also the steak in the surf and turf was fatty. The veal parmigiana was fabulous and the salads were good. The creme brûlée’s were served a little cold and would’ve been more enjoyable had they been caramelized closer to serving. Lastly there was a long wait between courses especially for the entrees. It was well over 30+ minutes but fortunately we were with food friends we hadn’t seen in a while so we still have a great night out.
