Food was delicious. I had the beef brisket and my friend had the veal, and both were absolutely amazing. Their chocolate martini as very good too. The restaurant was decorated with Halloween decorations, and the ambiance was nice.

You will not be seated unless entire party present. Front desk is rude. Bar is miniscule. Super dark, like a cave. Very loud, can't hear the waiter. Had to flag water server to get a refill. The portions are huge, really can be family style. Linguine was overcooked, only two shrimp but tons of mussels in mare pasta dish. Cannelloni was the best dish but very heavy, the sheets are thick. Eggplant had way too much cheese, again heavy. Everything was a bit salty.

They had me walking in when I saw an Italian grandma making pasta from scratch. Then I go downstairs and see 6” High desserts made from scratch and I know it’s going to be good! Shareable apps: Burrata, sautéed calamari. I had the veal Marsala and it’s probably the best I’ve ever tasted. My colleague had a mixed seafood dish which was equally delicious. Top it off w sharing a piece of to die for strawberry cheesecake. But then they brought amaretto and Sambuca w coffee beans, in cut crystal sherry glasses that just was icing on the cake. Definitely a splurge meal if you’ve been low carb for awhile! So worth it!

At the end of the meal they offer amaretto and Sambuca complimentary. Another waiter came and took our bottles from us shortly after we received them without even asking. We weren’t drinking heavily by any means however the manner In which he took the beverages from our table was incredibly rude. Our server was fantastic. I wish I knew the name of the other server. Food was excellent and the entire place was “buzzing.” Other than the last minute experience at the end of our meal...it was fantastic.

Went there on a recommendation that this was a great Italian restaurant. It was a bad cross between the TGI Friday decor and over priced overly rich faux Italian cuisine. Sort of like an over priced Olive Garden. Drinks were decent. Our server was wonderful - in stark contrast to the food, which was mediocre.
