As always, the food and service was excellent. However, we sat upstairs and it was quite loud. Had to talk really loud in order to have a conversation .

Food was superb. However, I have been in the industry my entire career and I was baffled at the poor service. For this caliber of place, I would expect the servers be more engaged and have a baseline knowledge of food and beverage offered. Our server was clueless. Again, food is excellent! We had bruschetta stuffed sole, vegan meatballs and pasta vodka.

None of the restaurant staff were wearing masks. The tables were arranged very close to each other. The restaurant was crowded and loud - it was hard to have a conversation without shouting at the top of your lungs. The waiter was really nice, but was always in a rush. The food was okay, however, it was quantity over quality. Overall, I am quite displeased with the place as I was expecting a really classy experience given its rating.

Went there for dinner and we were seated updstairs (which was my friends preference) in a corner near a window overlooking atwells ave. IT WAS WONDERFUL, SECLUDED AND COZY. Bread and dipping oils which are complimentary were beyond delicious and I rarely eat bread at dinner but could not help myself, just a wonderful rustic quality for a blustery evening. We ordered clams casino and they were wonderful. Needless to say by the time my veal parm came to me I was already full. the veal filled my plate, the sauce (gravy) was delicious and I am looking forward to having it for lunch today. My friend also had the veal parm which he loved and all in all this will be one of our favorite places to visit.

The food was delicious, the ambiance was lovely and the service was fantastic. The portions are large, so it's a good thing our table of 4 opted to skip appetizers. Dessert menu looked good, but we did not have enough room for it. I'll definitely be coming back here.
