Absolutely phenomal. We always used to pass by this restaurant on our way to green acres but never stopped by. Glad we did. Food was absolutely delicious. We had the special grilled octopus/calamari, baked clams, lobster seafood special, and shrimp scampi. Everything was delicious. We will return. Service was great as well. Best old fashioned I’ve ever had.

Food was outstanding. Specials are "very special", meaning you wouldn't find on normal menu. Waiter was a pleasure. Wine list was decent. A bit pricey, but not complaining as it was worth it-just a heads up.

From the warm welcome Of a party of 8 upon arrival and throughout the dinner, the service is spectacular. This was a special occasion and was not disappoint. The appetizer too the main course, and dessert,. Our server answered every question with detailed descriptions of each dish and provided helpful guidance. The entire experience is sumptuous.

After traveling, it was nice to come back to IL Luogo. We came to celebrate a friends Anniversary and were, as always, very pleased. This place is ALWAYS consistent. The food gets better every time, the service is top notch and management always caters to all your special requests and needs. I cannot wait to visit again in April and for the wine tasting as well! A wonderful GEM!!!

A very nice experience again. I like the ambiance here as well as the attention from the wait staff. The restaurant business can be tough but these guys are very consistent. The food as always taste very good I’ve been coming here long enough to know that this place is not afraid to try a different approach to their meals. I had a seafood salad but it was probably the 3rd variation of it and it tasted just as good as the first. My friend was very impressed with the food from presentation to taste bud not to mention the baby amarone. I see they installed sound buffers to promote noise cancellation which is very important if you want to have conversation when it gets busy. Great detail! This place really is awesome.

Despite having a reservation, there was a 40 minute wait. The lambchops were so heavily covered in mustard that the taste of the lamb was absent- I feel that herbs should enhance the flavor of the meat, not overpower it. I usually love lamb chops and I hated them!
Our servers were the best part of the experience.

The food was very good. However the server was cold and un-attentive. He made no effort to check in on us very often and we had to flag him down to get the check and it wasn't very busy at the time.
The food runner was excellent and very friendly. Very personable.

I was very surprised to be honest. There were mixed reviews on this place so my expectations were kinda low. But instead of disappointing, it was fabulous! The service was excellent, the food was delicious, the atmosphere was relaxing, overall it was a wonderful experience. Thank you very much for making a casual get together with friends a great experience.

This was my first time here and I could not be more pleased with everything this place had to offer. From the moment we walked in we were greeted friendly and seated promptly thank to making reservations on Open Table, I recommend making reservations. The wait staff was incredibly friendly, attentive and helpful reciting a long list of specials and making recommendations. The food was absolutely incredible!! I highly recommend this place and I will be back for certain....

It’s amazing that you can go to a place that the minute you walk in you want to come back because of the feeling you get when you are greeted at the door. The food was so wonderful. We enjoyed our get together and mostly enjoy such wonderful food. The food is prepared perfectly. Good quality and beautiful presentation. A most enjoyable evening.

We shared an appetizer, salad and main dish and considered the food to be good quality although one must be prepared to spend $70-100 per person if you each have an appetizer, main dish, a drink or two, much less a dessert and after dinner drink. The servicer was good and attentive. The only issue was that the waiter did not give us a drink menu that would allow us to review the cost of various items and when we ordered the main dish he recommended an alternative. It then required several attempts for him to give us the cost of the main dish, which he claimed was half a duck but it came out as two legs (perhaps that is considered a half in some quarters). In other words, he was making in several instances an attempt to increase the final bill...not surprising but nevertheless a bit annoying...

This has quickly become my favorite "special occasion" restaurant. You cannot do better! The food is top of the line and the service is impeccable. From the minute you arrive, they make you feel special. I've recommended this restaurant to absolutely everyone. It's a "must try".......just go and see for yourself.

Food was a little below par from what I usually get there. There are a lot of specials for such a small restaurant and they are hard to keep track of and the waiters practically whisper them to you.
