Forgot that it was BYOB. But the waiter
was very gracious and offered us wine at no charge. We gave him a really nice tip to Thank him. Really enjoyed our meal. I had grilled Salmon. My husband had the Sole. I wouldn’t say we were blown away but both were prepared well. The staff were-very conscientious , as we were going to a show at the Papermill playhouse. So it’s a perfect place! We will probably go back.

Made a reservation because we were going to see a show at Paper Mill playhouse. The Italian menu was wonderful. It was delicious.
We didn’t realize it was BYOB, so if you are a person who absolutely must have a drink, either bring your own wine or choose a different place.
The service was attentive and efficient and we had no problem getting to our show. They asked every table if they were attending the show, and if you were, they knew how to service the table. You could tell there were large groups that, armed with serveral bottles, were there for the night and that was just fine with them too.

Beautiful decor and European style service makes this a perfect place for a special occasion dinner. The food is excellent, and fairly priced. Most pastas are house made. Stuffed mushroom appetizer was really outstanding. BYOB.

We had to wait 15 minutes past our 7:30 PM reservation. The staff was preoccupied by a large outgoing party and the table being prepped for another large incoming party. The host did her best to get the table ready for us while we waited. The staff was chaotic getting the other party situated,.....set up of balloons, flowers and place settings. I asked the host to seat us quickly so we could get our order in ahead of the 12+ birthday party celebrants. I enjoyed the chicken rollatine but felt that four small pinwheel rounds of chicken breast, 3/4" thick, with only mushrooms as a side, did not warrant $32. My husband had the duck entree and he was satisfied with it. The Caesar salad was tasty, the eggplant rollatine was flavorful but the eggplant was sliced paper thin. In my opinion the portions tend to be on the smaller side and pricing higher than comparable restaurants.

Booked a table for 8pm. The restaurant was not busy. Service was terrible. At the end of the meal we were the last table in the restaurant. The staff turned on the radio loud to try to get us to leave. Absolutely awful. Will never eat there again.

This was our second visit for dinner - did not live up to the first.
My clams were overcooked and chewy - our waiter basically ignored our comments to that effect. Service was fair at best - seemed understaffed for a Saturday night.

The food is excellent! It is farm to table. We all loved the Asparagus soup. Full of flavor and healthy! I had Butternut squash ravioli. It was sweet and I felt as if I was eating a "good-for-you" dessert. My friend had the pistachio gnocchi (which I tasted), that melted in my mouth. It was light and subtle. I also tasted my other friend's Dover sole, which was flavorful & light without been overpowering. Exquisite food, great ambience and really personable service. It was like eating at the chef's house. The noise level was quiet to moderate and we could catch up and carry out a conversation without having to repeat. I definitely want to go back!
