Tonight was a BIG downer. Restaurant had only 2 tables booked. And a party for 8-10 year old's who were running through the restaurant. I had soup and pasta... Soup came cold. Sent it back. Pasta was luke warm. No taste.. Very disappointing for a place that has a perceived level 4.5 rating. Be careful if you go..

We had a very large family gathering that day in our party room, and agree that the restaurant got loud at times. We wish you'd have said something to us about the pasta so we could get you something else, and maybe move you to a different area of the dining room. We're sorry for the unpleasant time, and if you'd like to give us another chance, ask for Jesus.

Service was extremely slow. Food was very basic Italian, not very flavorful. Staff was apologetic about service. Would not return.

The food was very good and I didn't realize there would be live entertainment (two guitarists) but it really added to the ambiance. I feel like we've discovered a gem and we'll definitely be back!

Was disappointed enough that I had a martini. The first one was smaller than the second and there was no garnishment on the first one. Over all 4 out of 5 Star Will be returning- hopefully the drink sizes will be consistent.

A group of us thought we’d try this family owned restaurant. So glad we went. The food was delicious, the grilled calamari was fresh, the eggplant parmigiana had a great marinara sauce. Honestly, it was a such a pleasant dinner experience. The staff didn’t rush us. We will go back again.

Everyone had something different from simple to rich, all left with happy tummies. Highly recommend Lobster ravioli, linguini with classic and shrimp with spinach and red peppers. Overindulged on the rolls. Save your carbs for dinner! Also had a really great string trio that all seemed to enjoy.

We'll be back BUT not on the weekend when they have live music. The noise level was almost unbearable - totally unacceptable.

We were seated promptly for our 6:45 reservation. The server was new but very attentive. The Lasagna and Cavatelli pasta entrees were excellent. The home made pasta was so fresh it melted in our mouths and the sauce and cheese on each dish was perfect. For desert, we split a piece of what I'd say is the best Tiramisu I've ever had. They had two musicians (violinist and keyboard ) that were really talented and enhanced our overall dining experience. Will definitely return. Highly recommend.

What a pleasant evening! Service was beyond excellent; warm, friendly atmosphere of a small neighborhood trattoria. Very clean, excellent prices, great menu selections and portion sizes. Was there for my birthday and instead of the usual piece of chocolate cake with a candle, they served me Panna Cotta! We can’t wait to go back.

We were not disappointed. The food was very good. Break was warm and very good. We would prefer our fried calamari be smaller pieces but it tasted fine. We had the bolognese and a shrimp chicken-angel hair and peas. We had enough left over for dinner the next night and the food warmed up well. Very good service as well.
