The service was non existent. Our appetizers and drinks were gone for over 30 minutes before a waiter even looked in our direction. In 2 hours I could only get my hands on two glasses of wine despite my glass being empty for the majority of the time we were there. I would have had 4 or 5 glasses and dessert but I didn't have 6 hours to spend.

Service was so incredibly slow. We had to get up and find a waiter/waitress for everything. We sat down and weren’t asked our drink order in almost an hour!

Food was very okay. Was not pleased with the experience at all

This is one of The best restaurants for homemade Italian food and was the first place we bee-lined to after we were fully vaccinated. We drove over an hour to get there just to be able to savour their amazing sauce. They also make good drinks too, I recommend the Prada Pear martini. We’re so glad they are able to stay in business and hope they’re around for years to come !!

Our reservation was for 10pm, we called to confirm and they said to arrive at 9:45pm. We did what we were told... we didn’t get sat until 10:30pm. It was valentine day so with that in mind and the level of business at that time, it is safe to say our experience was fine.

730 reservations, was not seated until 8pm. Waited until 830 to be approached by a server who finally took our drink orders. Waited about 30 minutes for our food in which they gave us the wrong order. The staff then took the plates away from us and brought them to the other table that ordered what they gave us. Then waiting another 15 minutes for our food.

The food was very good. Unfortunately with the Covid guidelines and no indoor dining they were not heavily staffed (understandably) so it took much longer than we had anticipated to order and be served. But the staff was wonderful and apologetic and the food was great. They do not take reservations even though it appears as they do through open table so just know that in advance. It is first come first served. We were lucky as they had a table for us when we got there. Also dress warm if it is winter months.

The food was not really tasty, but very expensive! And be careful when receiving the bill cause they put on 30$ Extra for the service, without informing or asking!

The food was good and solid value, but the reason I give it a high rating is because of the service. I received the phone call that my father is dying while I was at the restaurant. The server was so thoughtful- giving me as private a place as possible to have the phone conversation, then giving me a stiff drink and checking in with me at the table. The empathy and humanity shown was way beyond. Decent food, great value and beautiful, wonderful humans.

It is a good place to go when it’s not busy. It was disappointing that they wanted to kick us out when we weren’t even finished with our food. They forgot to put the candle in the dessert for the birthday girl before serving it. Overall the food is good, but service could be better.

The restaurant was packed which is a good sign. Our server talked me out of the Vodka Pasta to a chicken dish where the chicken was well over cooked. Thus, the food was subpar.

Went to dinner post-theater (At 11 PM) so the restaurant was relatively quiet. I appreciated the the menu stated if an appetizer was enough to share. The seasonal vegetables over greens was delicious. I had the chicken eggplant rolatini parmigiana. It was delicious. My one complaint is that the entrees came out very quickly, while we were still working on the appetizer. Water glasses were kept filled. Prices were very good.

Lentil soup had very few lentils & mashed potatoes were instant from a box. Tables too close together. Front door didn't close all the way so cold air was constantly blowing in.
