From the start the service was slow and unresponsive. After we ate some bread and drank some water we got up and left. We talked to the hostess and it didn't make any difference. It was our wedding anniversary which they knew so we were really disappointed. We've been there before and were surprised that the service was so bad.

Best, traditional Italian food in Old Town. Great service and attentive staff. We included a message along with our reservation in OpenTable regarding a special request for seating. The hostess not only called us to confirm receipt of the message but then texted us to let us know our table was ready.

Great food every time, the Pasta Romano is to die for! Love the ambience sitting outside and watching the people go by. A must for us every time we are in Old Town!

This traditional restaurant has always been good. Nice to have a place that maintains its kitchen to make it a repeatable event like we have been experiencing for the past 20 years.

Always excellent. They have a lot of outside dining on King Street now that the street is closed to traffic. Great people watching. We dined indoors and which in the heat of summer is much preferred and had good social distancing. The stone walls of the old buildings foundations give the restaurant an intimate and naturally cooling feel. They had a full menu. The seafood dishes were fresh and delicious. They have the most generous drinks in old town.

Have been there before and always liked it -- not so much this time. The service from entry was really disappointing. In an empty dining room hostess tried to seat us right next to the service portion of the bar -- we declined as did the next three parties she tried to seat there. Our waiter was inattentive forgetting repeatedly to bring the drink order for one of our party and bringing the caprese with the wrong tomatoes. The entrees were excellent but the service made the meal a real disappointment.

Never disappointed. We have been going there for 30 years. Great veal, pasta, caesar salad, calamari. Everything is delicious, service is tops. They are doing an exceptional job with outdoor dining during Covid.

We’ve eaten here for over 25 years and though food is always delicious I felt the soft shell were small for the price and not near as tasty as many times before. I ask for them whenever I am there and maybe they’re not in season. However the service is always wonderful and having the outdoor area during these times, was great.

We were celebrating our anniversary and we’re very pleasantly surprised with our first dine in experience since COVID. Everything was lovely, the wait staff was wonderful, food was delicious and the out door seating was just what we needed.

The service could have been better...we had to ask twice for a set up after the appetizer had arrived. It was extremely annoying to have the staff “tear down” the outside tables and chairs while several people were still eating.

Was always a great spot in Old Town. We went on Friday and left after we ordered appetizers. The Clams Casino were awful, I tried to order a Mojito and the server told me the bar doesn't make them. I know they just opened, but we will not be back...
