We have been there many times and will return but this time was a real disappointment. Initially, our online reservation was recognized but they missed that we requested one of their booths (due to a back problem, I can't handle hard seats). Eventually, we moved into a booth. That move seemed to confuse or overload our waiter. The rest of the night was slow motion. This is a small restaurant. It should not have been a problem. We did have a peak 7PM reservation. Things seemed to have recovered as the crowd lightened by 8PM. In any case, the food was very good as usual. We'll go back and try again.

Drinks took 20 minutes, food service was reasonable. The gnocchi was floury.. The eggplant was bitter.. The risotto was completely unsalted and not well made.. Ravioli was good, Cappelli was OK.. The desserts were good.. Maybe it was an off night, but this place has gone down in food quality..

We waited for well over 20 minutes after we arrived before we were acknowledged. Perhaps the restaurant was understaffed that night, I just know I will not be returning.

The drinks were prompt, the dinner - oh those lamb lollipops and the roasted beet salad so delicious - the Italian feel of the place transported me, and we lingered for almost 3 hours and were never rushed. Juan's service was top notch, and can't wait to go back, so many things to try on the menu to try!

Even when all tables are full the noise level is very manageable. This evening we enjoyed cioppino, farfalle salciccia, braised lamb shank, seafood pasta in squid ink and the caramel basket for dessert.

No fresh tomato sauce, no garlic, nothing well spiced, it is all creme based sauces that don't seem fresh. Not a good value either. The staff didn't seem very happy, either. Don't go there if you want a real and tasteful Italian meal, or if you are in any way a "foodie".

The service was good, but nothing spectacular. My husband and I arrived early and we were seated, and after about 15 mins, we had to flag someone down to order a drink. Our waitress was pleasant, but I think better customer skills are needed for the staff. The best part was the ambience of the restaurant. It was very cozy, and comfortable. We will probably not return.

The ambiance is very nice with a moderate to quiet noise level. We felt slightly rushed by the waitress as we sat down and ordered a bottle of wine we said we would have a glass of wine before ordering. Separate wait staff came over with wine to uncork and pour. Waitress came back shortly after the wine was poured to see if we were ready to order. Other than this wait staff were very attentive. The food was great. We each ordered a special - NY Steak and Halibut, both were prepared exceptionally well. Portions were generous. We topped off the night with coffee drinks and a shared dessert all of which was wonderful. I would definitely recommend this spot. Prices were quite fair
