Lovely place on a Saturday night. My party of eight was late getting there, but they accommodated us. Service was a bit spotty- they forgot the drinks a few people ordered. Atmosphere was fun; food delicious!

Wish maybe they had garlic bread or Malbec or Lambrusco but was fine for a casual evening of drinks and light bites. The rice balls were very good.

8pm Saturday night. We had our choice of seats and within 15 minutes, most of the tables were full. We shared an Arugula salad with apples and almonds-it was light & refreshing. Penne Puttanesca & Eggplant Parmesan were both were prepared and flavorful. Wines by the glass are well priced, we had a Malbec & Montepulciano. Tiramisu & expresso finished the evening. We had a pleasant meal for a reasonable price. A winner! We will be back.

Food was delicious. Waitstaff was friendly and helpful. But one guest had difficulty getting ice tea. The coffee machine was broken. There were only 2 desserts, both of which were dairy based which was a problem for 2 of the guests with lactose intolerance. If they can get everything in order, I think it will be a good neighborhood restaurant.

Cellar 58 was recommended by a friend who has traveled to Italy numerous times and knows good authentic Italian food.
We were 5 people on a Sunday evening which is a great time to go because they don't open until 5:00 and it's not crowded.
Our waiter (and owner) Paolo's service was outstanding. He made the overall experience a pleasure by recommending dishes, taking the time to explain items on the menu, and most of all...informing us that the Calamari did not meet the Chef's standards and would not serve it.
We ordered several appetizers and pasta dishes, all of which were excellent. The Polenta Cakes were my favorite! My daughter had the Bucatini Amatriciana which she hasn't eaten since she studied in Rome last year and it was "Spot On"! Can't wait to go back! The polenta cakes are calling me!

The wine, food, and service matched a great ambiance. The food portions were bigger than expected for a wine bar, and very good. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. It has a modern rustic look with romantic lighting.

We went to Cellar 58 because the reviews were good and it was close! We took advantage of an early reservation and promotion from OpenTable (1,000 pts). We were very pleased!! My companion had the linguine w/ clams and I had buccatini w/ ragu as an entree, charcuterie (soppressata), and the arugula salad. Everything was very flavorful and the staff are very attentive. We also had copious amounts of wine - their wine list was impressive, but we stuck to the great sauvignon blanc that was on special for happy hour ($5). I recommend Cellar 58 . You will not be disappointed.

I took my son out for dinner and wanted something simple and delicious. This was the place! The ambiance is excellent and the waiter was incredibly attentive. They brought out some great olive oil and bread, which is nice to see in a day when bread is no longer served. We shared a couple of very generous sized appetizers, excellent white wine, and then true to form Italian main courses - chicken a type of milanese style and a pasta dish to perfection. We had to bring some food home and the price did not break our wallets. I will definitely return.

It's a shame about the food--barely fair. But it was quiet on this Sunday night, and the service was lovely, the wine nice enough--so all in all it was a pleasant last minute experience.
