    Thurs. nite for dinner. Sat at the bar, Allen was the perfect bartender/server…simply outstanding on every level. Entree quality excellent and good plate presentation,( a dash pricy…but you get what you pay for). Dining room is laid out perfectly and has a good vibe. The chef/owner and his wife work the restaurant and make you feel welcome. Definitely one of our ‘go too’ restaurants.

    It was so once to o be greeted and bid goodnight by name by the staff. Most of the dishes were overpriced and while I didn’t expect a menu like the Cheescske factory, there were not many regularly featured items. There were, however, several several special pastas, but they were all in the $60 dollar range. I’ve had handmade pasta all my life and unless they were made by Rumplestilskin and made of spun gold), no pasta is worth that! The roast pork and chicken entrees seemed to be a better deal, but the pork was pink and not totally coked through. The chicken, however, was good. The third guest ordered pasta with a red sauce, but it came with a white sauce instead. The waiter was ok, but a bit condescending at first. Interestingly, he didn’t know the price of the specials at first, and had to check. He was, however, quite attentive. I was disappointed that there was no complimentary birthday dessert. When I mentioned it was my birthday he managed to find a few small biscotti. The live band was excellent! The outdoor patio was closed, although the adjoining restaurants sll prvdrf outdoor service. It was an ok experience, but based on the reviews, I expected more.

    We went for our 20th anniversary and we’re given a complimentary Prosecco, which was appreciated. Food was fantastic! Black truffle pasta and the sundried tomato pasta. I have seen so many posts about the bread and I do get that. For the high end feel, I would really recommend scrapping the bread or upping that to something else. Service was great, live music was great and a really nice volume. Prices have definitely gone up so be prepared for that. Overall, we had a lovely evening, delicious food, and excellent service.

    Wonderful restaurant with a smooth, relaxing vibe. Great for a date or just to enjoy! Ambience couldn't be better. The handmade pasta is so very delicious, made with porcini mushroom and topped with mushrooms and lobster. I would eat this every night if I could! My husband had the veal chop that was cooked to perfection! The sauce was superb. His lips were glistening with all that flavor! Dylan was our waiter and he couldn't have been more helpful, polite and efficient! Love this restaurant!

    My husband and I go out to eat quite often. Hands-down this is our favorite restaurant! The homemade pastas, the service, the wine selection, everything is top notch and the best authentic Italian food around! We set at the bar this time and Antonello was the bartender and our server. We had such a great time and so appreciate the A+ service he provided. We will be back soon! The dessert was also outstanding! Thank you!

    We went to celebrate our retirement and there was a three piece ensemble playing great music. Sima seated us at the bar so we could have a drink because we were early and our table wasn’t ready. The food was so delicious and the ingredients were very fresh. The chef is working away in the kitchen with his staff. Amazing place for a celebration or romantic dinner.

    Best Italian resturant. We ordered the caprese, carpaccio di tonno and gnocchi as appitizers. Highly recommend ordering a dish off the hand crafted pasta to share. Lentil soup was on the menu and it was awesome. Branzino was the special pesce and it was really, really good. Service. While our waiter was knowledable and attentive, he rushed us to order.

    The restaurant was lovely and in a great location. It had a nice ambiance. Our server was nice and we didn't wait a long time at any point. I appreciated the freshness of the food and the labor that goes into making homemade pasta. But everything was just bland. So although those other things may be true, they don't make up for the blandness. I felt that probably the chef is going for 'simple', without doctoring up the fresh ingredients but obviously he and I differ on what tastes seasoned. That's ok! It's his restaurant. But I found the food SO underwhelming and the price SO high, that it was not a good value and no, I probably will not try it again.

    Tough one here. Had some sort of reaction that wasn’t necessarily the meal but the meal had to be a contributing factor. Could they have offered to cover the dish I barely had a bite of? Yes. Should they have? Maybe? I was dealing with the reaction and my wife didn’t know how long I’d be so she just boxed up my dish to go and that was that. While my wife loved her dish, she thought mine wasn’t very good, so there’s that.
