    All the food was very good and was not over salted. My salmon was not medium rare, as requested, but delicious anyway. Our server was friendly and informative, but forgot to place a drink order. The restaurant felt a bit understaffed, but overall, we had a good time and will go back.

    All 3 of us ordered different pasta dishes and all were very good. I grabbed a larger wine pour which only added $2 to the price. Service was great. Most tables filled but with large opening to outside it was airy and relatively quiet. Did a side of cauliflower for the table. Not a big cauliflower fan, but this was tasty. Too full for dessert:(

    We were seated immediately after arrival even tho we arrived early. The restaurant downstairs was very busy. It was a little difficult to hear for our hearing impaired diner. The red wine was ok, a little dry but the Caesar salad was delicious. The bolognese pasta was flavorful. One diner needed gluten free pasta and her fusilli pasta with chicken was very good. The big winner was the lobster ravioli. All were pleased with the meal and our server was terrific! We will be back soon.

    Birthday dinner! With our son who is a Marquette student. We sat outside on a glorious summer evening and enjoyed the atmosphere so much. Service was unintrusive, prompt, and helpful. Lobster ravioli was exceptional. We had a meat and cheese board as an appetizer and it was the perfect amount for 3 of us without spoiling our dinner! Dessert was blueberry cheesecake—-wonderful! And our son loved his tiramisu. Great evening, great food, great service! We’ll be back!

    The meatballs were a little tough in one of the meals. We ordered a bottle of wine and it came in a carafe which was a little strange. We didn’t see the bottle or have it opened in front of us.

    Overall not wowed or impressed. Honey roasted bruschetta appetizer very one note all sweet, not at all balanced, mushy tomatoes and somewhat stale bread. Four dishes two under seasoned one over seasoned. Risotto was more like plain rice with some scallops thrown on top. Lobster ravioli filling was very grainy and we did not detect any lobster inside that we could identify or taste. Nice atmosphere, location and service. But based on food and very high cost I would not recommend.
