The graduation ceremony ran a little long so we arrived 15 minutes late. They were able to seat us right away. Dinner, appetizers and dessert were all great.

We had a very nice time. Everything from the appetizers to the desserts was delicious. Service was very friendly. The only minor detractor was the noise level which made it hard to converse with everyone at our table for 7.

All was good. Watch wine price. We thought we ordered a $35 wine. Turned out to be $135!!! It was small print & not real clear. It was grouped with wines that cost $30 so you wouldn’t think there would be one for $100 more.
But otherwise we had a great dinner!

Great Italian food. All made homemade onsite. Server was friendly and very educated on the menu. My husband got the lobster ravioli- just awesome. I had a shrimp pasta dish, also yummy. Please keep supporting this great local spot!

Waited 15 minutes and had to finally flag someone down to get a server. Felt rushed after that. Lobster ravioli was just ok, however the chicken piccata was good and bread was delicious.

Hi Kim! Thank you for your honest feedback as it is very important to us. We're sorry for the slow start to the evening, we were very busy and are working hard to build up our serving staff. It looks like your visit check in to check out was 1 hour and 15 minutes which is typical for a 2-top. Your server, Chrystina's intention was not to rush you- rather wanted to ensure you were taken care of on a very busy night. We hope to see you back soon! -The Macri Family
