Had reservation at 6:45, but were not seated until 7:15. What’s the meaning of a reservation then? Ordered wine with main course. Asked about wine 15 minutes after main course arrived, when pasta was already cold. Was told that the bar is very busy and that I can cancel the wine if I want. The server didn’t offer to take care of wine or anything else.

The Truffle bread is a MUST as an appetizer and the Butternut Squash soup was probably the best I have ever had!

They messed up our order, but were very proactive about it when they realized. It did take them a bit to realize it. We have gone there a few times and will continue to go, food is always consistent.

Fabulous food, great service and cozy ambiance! Loved this please and cant wait to try more items on the menu. I did the Tortallini and it was so tasty and great portion size (no left overs but no overeating either).

Always a family favorite whether it’s for all ten of us or just the two of us. Patio seating is our choice with two toddler granddaughters.

Food was great and our waiter was honestly the best! Went with a group of 5 loud girls so we could be annoying and he was super sweet funny and helpful.

The food and service was good as always. Kind of surprised they don’t provide a dessert or something for birthday meals, but we were full so it wasn’t much of a loss.

Waited for 20 minutes to get to a table. Not sure what the hostess are doing in the front. They look very confused.
