This was our first time here. The service and the food was great. We were not rushed which made for a nice meal. The only issue that I had, not being familiar with the streets and relying on navigation was that the websites directions got us lost, my cars navigation got us closer but not to the door. After driving in circles for 25 minutes finally came in from another direction and saw the resturant. Other than that I can't wait to go back.

I'm very picky about my Italian food.(Italian heritage and raised on all homemade Italian food.) It was decent food, but excellent reviews left me expecting more. Eggplant parmigiano was okay but definitely not in my top 10. Maybe it wasn't sliced thin enough. My partner ordered chicken parm and was served veal. He's good natured and ate it, but we really don't eat veal ever (on principle) so when the waiter told him he had ordered veal, we had to laugh to eachother. (He had asked about another dish that ended up having veal in it, so perhaps that was the confusion. ) We had the protiferole (sp?) dessert which said it was filled with cannoli cream; it was filled with ice cream. Go figure! As for the positive, the stuffed artichoke was very good and nice to see on the menu, the Merlot was one of the best glasses of wine I've ever had, and the wait staff were very kind and attentive. It's a toss up if we go back. Maybe for appetizers and Merlot!

Picked this restaurant based on OpenTable reviews for a business Meeting lunch and as always it lived up to the reviews. The portions were nice size and appetizers delicious. Stuffed clams and calamari were great. Service was good. We were the only ones there at noon on a Wednesday.

We had a party of 6 for mother’s day at 2:00. We were promptly seated. We stared with fried calamari and baked clams and the arugula beet salad. The calamari was tender and the baked clams were tasty- whole with bread crumbs done old school. Everyone enjoyed their main courses. The portions were large, several of us took half home. I loved how they were serving the regular menu in Mother’s Day. I had a halibut special, done in a Chardonnay broth with clams, chorizo corn and potatoes. Very nice . My daughter had the Veal Braciole with Gnocchi- the gnocchi were like clouds she proclaimed! Other dishes were penne vodka, sole piccata , chicken franchese and the salmon. All delicious. The picky grandma’s ate way more than normal and loved their meals . These women do not give complements easily! Highly recommend for any occasion or just a nice meal in a nice setting.

This was our second time, the first time was a date night and this time we brought our kids with us and we loved it both times. The food is so good; I love that they have a menu that has a nice combo of unique meals, but offer some classics too! We all loved our dinner choices and the service was awesome. Our waiter was really attentive, gave us great recommendations and was very pleasant. We will definitely be back:)

We were a group of 8, family and friends. The ease of the Open Table reservation was wonderful. We chose a variety of Italian selections, and all of us were pleased. The zucchini blossoms appetizer were popular. The calamari were attractively served, but not as crispy as the menu suggested - too bad. All in all, a wonderful evening.

Had a very nice time. The food was excellent - my wife and i both ordered dinner specials, and were both extremely happy with it. Service was good but not great. Had no complaints about the service, but there were a few little things that you would expect in a mid- to upscale-restaurant that we didn't get (e.g. my wife and I split an appetizer, and had to ask for separate plates, then only received one plate and it was an entree sized plate). With that said, will definitely go back.

The server was very slow with our wine order and the bottle of SB house came warm. I had to have him chill it for another 20mins. My wife found the vongola to be very dry and the stuffed artichoke was full of garlic and no taste. I wanted to love this place but left us feeling not satisfied. Sorry

The restaurant was very busy on a recent Saturday night with many people who appeared to be regulars. Two of the diners in the group enjoyed their meals. I chose the cioppino--a mistake. It was very bland and the seafood was overcooked. I wouldn't return to this restaurant any time soon.

We were very disappointed with the food. Both of us chose the prix fixe three course fish choice. My salad greens had clearly been cut much earlier and my husbands baked clams were mostly breading. The fish was too heavy it breaded and very salty. The only decent item was the biscotti-they were very good.

We were disappointed since the reviews were good and the place was packed. Maybe we should have gotten a pasta dish?
