Awesome food!! Highly recommend the whipped ricotta appetizer and the buratta. We all got different pastas and they were all very good. My only complaint is that the chairs were uncomfortable and a little unstable.

Taking two chefs out to celebrate a big success catering. Took a chance picking a chain restaurant I rely on OT reviews. Rarely am I let down. Never expected this level of popularity. It was not unfounded. The only glitch was that our server disappeared a few times. He could have just been busy but it was noticeable. Won’t stop me from coming back to this high level of food and style. Cheers!

Hostess was very rude and unfriendly. Service is bad. Had to place our order with, not even sure who, but definitely not our waiter. Staff avoid eye contact, weird.

We sat down, but it took 10 min before anyone stopped by our table. Had to do a blitz order once our writer stopped by.

I would recommend this place for brunch but absolutely not for dinner. The waiters are all over the place and the service is very poor. Dinner is ok in taste, but we loved the brunch. Sad of the big difference... if was like a completely different restaurant

Brought my family for dinner and had a wonderful experience.
The linguine with clams, tuna tartare, burrata, and tiramisu was excellent!
Highly recommend for a dinner with nice setting, excellent servers, and great food.

One of my goto spots for its convivial room, sumptuous food and fun servers. Love the lighter Italian food that are all fresh. Food is all seasoned to perfection. Love the Gramigna pasta, Grilled Octopus and all the salads and fish. Great any day of the week and for lunch!

Little noisy but very busy on a Sunday afternoon. The pasta was amazing. Bottomless bellini definitely made Sunday brunch a delight.

We sat outside for brunch and has the kale salad and the steak. The food was good, but not outstanding. Especially the bread would have been a lot better if it had been toasted a little bit, since the taste was amazing but the texture disappointing. Never the less, I really enjoyed the atmosphere and hospitality at the restaurant, so I do want to come back for dinner.

The food is absolutely delicious! My favorites are the meatballs and whipped ricotta appetizers. I had the campanelle pasta and it was really delicious. For dessert we had the chocolate mouse and it was good but not what I expected. It was served in a glass with blueberries and some kind of crunch. Our waiter was good, but the service was a little slow. I think it was just really busy that day. I would highly recommend this place.

The table was not ready for us more then 1/2 hour from our reservation. Sat at the bar and decided to eat at the bar for we were starving... appetizers are great, the past was good but on the salty side.. will go again and hope to sit at a table and be more comfortable.

Charming setting convenient to my hotel with indoor and outdoor seating. Fabulous bartender - so friendly and engaging. Outstanding menu and the food was delicious. Highly recommend the pasta! Tiramisu could easy serve 4 instead of 2. Will return!

Went for weekday lunch. A little loud but we were lucky to get a seat beside a dividing wall, was a little better. Great service and food. Chicken palliard was nice & moist.

What a wonderfully delicious dining experience!!!! I had the lavender spritz, which was very refreshing. The whipped ricotta, so good! The gramigna pasta is amazing! My sister had the octopus appetizer and the rigatoni. Both very tasty dishes! I highly recommend this restaurant, you won't be sorry!

Decided to try La Pecora because one day I walked by and it was very busy. We sat for dinner at 6:30pm. We both had a glass of wine and we found the pour VERY disappointing. Not a great start. The volume in the restaurant got progressively louder and it was necessary for us to literally yell across a two top table so we could hear each other. I had the octopus and strip steak and my wife had the Manila clams with gluten free pasta. I found the octopus had way to much sauce of some sort and the steak had had a sauce on it which was not in the description. Not a fan when all ingredients of an entree are not included in the description. I did not find my appetizer and entree to be anything special or memorable. My wife actually enjoyed her pasta. As I mentioned earlier we sat at 6:30, we could not wait to leave, and were out of there by 7:30pm. I personally felt our server was rushing us and needless to say this was not a relaxing dinner and will not return.

The food was delicious!! I cannot state this enough. The service was very good. The ambiance was somewhat more casual than I was hoping for on a Saturday night, but do not let that deter you as long as you are not looking for something very romantic.

Overall very nice place. The only negative thing is the noise level...very very high..probably it's better going to seat downstairs, also if the downstairs ambience is very small, just two/threee tables.
