    As always excellent service, atmosphere and the broiled Lobster tail was phenomenal, we did have an issue this time with the shrimp in leftys pasta as it tasted overcooked and was tough. This is the first time in 20 plus years that we have had an issue.

    Just recently started going here. Should have started years ago. Food is amazing. Had the lobster tail a few weeks ago and the stuffed lobster tail this time. Both were amazing and reasonably priced. This restaurant is definitely in the rotation.

    Would go back, though it was very busy and loud until around 930p when it really died down and became sedate. The lobster bisque was great though paying extra for meat and only getting a very little bit was disappointing. The wine list was adequate and reasonably priced. The entrees were varied though lots of fried stuff.

    noise level - my choice for the excessive volume is 'energetic'....ear splitting is a better word. The tables are too small and too crowded together. The food is very nice but their specials were over priced.

    Really loved the Branzino special with artichokes and what seemed like a piccata sauce on the veggies. The bread as usual was wonderful and the coconut crème pie was outstanding. Our server made a great wine suggestion too. Went at 11:30 and noise was fine for all but the 15-30 minutes of our meal. Even though it got noisy it was nice to see a couple of tables with 6 guests obviously enjoying their meal and each other!

    I had been wanting to try this place because they have baked stuffed shrimp. Finally my wife and I went last evening. Both of us loved it. My wife opted for two appetizers as her meal (crab cake and house salad). I opted for the baked stuffed shrimp (of course). We both enjoyed our meals. We will be back.
