If you order a cocktail you don’t want it delivered with your appetizer. When you still eating your appetizer you don’t want your main meal brought to the table.

This place is no better than a fast food chain restaurant. The food was basic. The Wedge salad was brown on the centre. The Lasagna was nothing to write home about. The Chicken Masala was sweet, very sweet. How strange. The food was barely warm and the vegetables were over cooked.

We had to tell the waiter several times that we would finish our wine and order coffee and dessert after the wine. We didn’t want it jammed in front of us like the rest of our meal.

The interior was tidy but tired.

Would we go again? Nope.

The owner and servers were so welcoming -- wonderful ambiance and service. The Caesar salad was very good, but pricey. The Pomodoro was very good, but two other (Vongolle and Meatball marinara were just fine.

Went there for a pre-show meal based on the ratings and I was not disappointed. Very nice service and took the recommendation of the waiter. We had cioppino and shrimp pasta. Excellent!

Made a reservation for 9:30, got seated at 10. Asked for the wine list 3 times before getting it. Ordered an appetizer they said they were out of so ordered another. After waiting for about a half hour they came back and said they were out of that one too. We ended up getting fried calamari which was super chewy. The pasta was dry and cold, the cheesecake was frozen. Way overpriced. Unfortunately did not like anything about this place.

I was super bummed about the quality of food for the price - it seemed as if our food had sat out under the heat lamps for well over 20 minutes. The candied carrots made no sense and the vegetables were mushy. I was so bummed after 3 years of consecutively coming, this dinner was the dinner to end any further enjoyment at the restaurant. There’s so many other better Italian restaurants that don’t feel like just an upscale Olive Garden

Crammed in tables for Valentine's Day but that's to be expected. 1 hour before I had even an appetizer on the table. They gave us the wrong appetizers because they ran out of what we ordered. They didn't tell us just tried to make it look like it was our fault. Steak was cooked a little too much but still enjoyable. The asparagus and carrots were very basic. They were ok, just not what I expect for a $90 dinner. I think I'll stick to Donovan's in the future- no more experimenting on important occasions.

Absolutely amazing experience! I took my wife for Valentine’s Day and we absolutely loved it. We had the Valentine’s Day special and all of the food was amazing. Our server, Lucas was very friendly and professional and made a mean Caesar salad table side as he told us the story of the origin of the salad. Overall an incredible experience!

This was our first time at this restaurant, they had a Valentine’s Day menu for $59 a person, so maybe their food is better on regular days. I had The minestrone soup and it was like dish water. The rest of the meal was good, but certainly not up to par for $100 per person (including one drink, tax, and tip). It was located close to the Balboa Theatre where we watched a ballet.
Still I think there are better choices for food at this price point.

We have been coming to this restaurant for years and have never received anything but the most excellent food and amazing service. The owner is often there and walking the floor ensuring that every customer feels like they are being served like family. You can’t go wrong with this amazing restaurant.
