    We are frequent diners. But service has been spotty. Last night I was served 1/2 a cosmo and with lemon not lime as ordered. Our salads took an hour “lost the ticket”. As we were 1/2 done with our finally arrived salads our dinners arrived-not hot but warm. Sadly we are moving this restaurant to the occasional dining instead of frequent. It’s unfortunate as this restaurant use to be a favorite.

    A little disappointed with the lunchtime service. Took us a while to order our drinks and the price of the chicken Caesar salad was extremely high it almost $19. We were offered dessert, but I had to ask for a refill and a coffee to have with the dessert. A good experience, but not a great one.

    We were out with friends we haven’t seen in a while. The noise level was very loud. It was hard to have a conversation. The food was good but barely had time to enjoy it. We felt very rushed. We had hardly eaten our salad when the dinner showed up. Had to box the salad so we could eat the hot food. Then. We were not finished eating the meal when they asked us if we wanted boxes to go. I asked the waitress if they needed us to leave. She brought the dessert menu while we were still eating the main course. For the price of the dinner, I felt very rushed. I probably wouldn’t go back.

    It is nice that this Scott Harris original restaurant has finally landed a "customer-centric" manager. Each (of the many) times we have come to this restaurant we are greeted with a smile and a welcome that you don't often see. Food continues to exceed expectations and service at the table is excellent.

    We have been dining here for many many years. It has changed over time but it’s always a great experience. The bar tender brothers Aldo and Izzy are the stars of the show. Do personable. They always remember you, service is excellent and you feel like part of the family. They’re amazing.

    It was a very busy night. Extremely loud in the dining room. Appetizers were good. Dinner was lackluster. Ordered the salmon with shrimp. 4 over cooked shrimp, under seasoned salmon and almost raw green beans. Next time I will order pasta.

    My family experienced was not met with expectations at all, from getting apps before bread and drinks on table. To the della Nona was absolutely atrocious and my father was fed up with his meal to which he didn’t order another alcoholic beverage. The mussels were still cold inside like not cooked enough. I wouldn’t cause a scene in public but this needs to be addressed because the whole dinner was a muck. The service was great and was tipped accordingly but not happy AT ALL with my dinner nor did the family either

Bre, the manager, is personable and genuinely cares about her customers. And my husband says Izzy makes the best old fashions (he also does a great job pouring champs)! Definitely our go to over and over!!!

    Had a reservation for 6:30 but didn't get seated until 7. Then tried to seat us at a table that was in the way of servers and cash register. Said we would wait. Service was extremely slow. When one entree arrived it was warm at best and had to be sent back.

    The food was very good. The waiter was attentive. The ambiance was festive. The Birthday dessert they provided was delicious and large enough to share. We were seated at a round table as we had requested. The sound level was extremely high. We could only hear when talking to the person next to us. We will go back but try to go on a weekday.

    The food was fairly good, however the space is very tight and it was pretty loud. We were also seated right next to the door, so that wasn’t really ideal. Service was good and quick. But definitely over priced for what you are getting overall.

    1st time dining here and had NYE dinner for two. We were promptly seated what seemed to be in a walking aisle and were advised to keep our dining to 90 minutes. We had the chicken milanese which looked dry and covered with arugula to hide the chicken and pork tenderloin dish had a good taste but was skimpy with 3 slices of meat. Also had the roasted potatoes which were 3 spears which were good but overpriced at $8.95. The menu was the everyday menu and was not a special for NYE. but is slightly overpriced for the area. Overall just an average dining experience with nothing that wowed us to return.

    Good experience parking is always problematic in that area during special dining events but we found a nice spot close. We were early but seated quickly the service was very prompt the fool excellent and did not take long given the large crowd. We enjoyed the entire experience.
