Excellent neighborhood restaurant. Good sized portions of delicious pastas, nice wine list and very fair pricing on food and wine. Excellent service. More than worth a visit.

I was so looking forward to this meal, and sadly our entire group was disappointed. The food was mediocre at best. We ordered a side of spinach that everyone agreed at the table was “off.” Either the olive oil or garlic used to sauté it with had gone bad. Thankfully the waitstaff removes it from our bill as we couldn’t eat it. The meatballs in the rigatoni were a undercooked and raw for my taste. Overall everyone’s main courses were just “ok.” But the most frustrating part was the service. From the second we sat down it seemed like they wanted to flip our table. Constantly trying to get us to order and then as soon as we did they came around asking if we were done. We had to ask for the dessert menu and when they brought our dessert they brought our check too. And the restaurant was basically empty! So no one else was going to use our table. We had a good bill racked up too so it wasn’t like we were being cheap. Super bummed as I’ve heard nothing but good things but sadly I don’t think I’ll be back.

Calamari not what we expected. Chicken parmigiana was not good. The lobster ravioli was absolutely fabulous! A little disappointed they don’t have a full bar.
Maybe we didn’t order the best things. Still a good place to try.

My daughter and I did a “mom and me” night here. The kids menu is excellent, the staff kind and welcoming, and the overall experience was fantastic. The wine by the glass selection is nice and each day the special offering is well done. We had a lovely time!

Partly our fault, but this is not the cute little restaurant where we can have a quiet evening of authentic Italian dishes. It’s fine for a place to eat after work or to take the kids for dinner, but based on the reviews we thought the experience was going to be something more. If you don’t mind one large room with both bar and dining tables and a television you won’t be disappointed. If you are hoping for more, reconsider.

Had passed this place hundreds of time but never tried it - a bad mistake on my part. Three if us shared pizza, rigatoni and gnocchi. All were outstanding! All freshly made and delicious. Salad was crisp and perfectly dressed. Soup outstanding. Tiramisu was delicious as well. Very fair pricing. Warm, friendly and skilled service. If you want a fine, fairly priced meal in a casual environment, this is a perfect spot.

We went there to celebrate a birthday. When I made the reservation I mentioned it was a birthday celebration. When we got there I told the hostess that I made the reservation on OpenTable and again mentioned it was a birthday celebration. They never acknowledged it at all. On the way out, I told the hostess that you never acknowledged the birthday especially since I told her personally. She said “ok do you want to see a manager?” That was her response. I said are you kidding? No I’ll just Yelp you and give my review on OpenTable too. This is the second restaurant in a week that we booked through OpenTable trying to celebrate this birthday. Very disappointed.

Service was excellent but the food was relatively bland, nothing exceptional and thus over-priced . $96 for dinner for two with tip but no alcohol, no dessert. Oil and balsamic on the table for dipping sauce but no seasonings to add to make it special - bread was so-so. Home-made pastas were a bit heavy/floury and seasonings for the dishes a bit flat.
