The patio is spacious. The food was very good and there were many choices. Service was a little slow but overall pleasant.
Excellent manager. Food was sub par for this restaurant: only OK. (Normally we love it.) But I think it’s because it was Sunday. Nice server. Outdoor seating was lovely but loud—chatty tables on all sides. Everyone’s out and eager to have some fun! Can’t blame them. All in all we were glad to be out as well. And grateful to be able to sit back and relax and have good food brought to us. Bless everyone who’s in the business! We’ve missed you!
Highly recommend! Great service and great food. Try it!
Everyone enjoyed their meals. Service was professional. Food was nicely prepared. Overall a good experience. We will return
Server was adequate but food was great
We sat on the patio which is enclosed by a tall fence and a fabric cover so was pleasant enough. Food is pricey. Salmon was very good. I changed my order from menu and asked for potato and veggie substitute which was no problem. Bread was not offered until we asked after seeing other tables had it. They no longer serve the thin breadsticks, just a couple pieces of herb bread. We ordered wine with dinner, but it didn't arrive until we finished our meals. Our server seemed stressed as they were understaffed as seems to be the way at restaurants these days.
Excellent Food & Service.
Our Waiter was Awesome.
Will be back.
Another great dinner. Excellent service. Chicken piccata was the highlight - the asparagus risotto served with it was outstanding. Good value for portion sizes. Nice staff - they are short staffed but doing a great job.
Our meals were delicious. Our service was very good - they are a bit short staffed at the moment, so slight delays, but honestly great if you realize just how much they are doing with fewer staff. Good values food for the prices. Very happy with our visit.
Dinner experience was poor. Our server was NOT wearing a face covering and was not only inexperienced but also rather inattentive to our table. The restaurant seemed pretty empty at 8pm on a Saturday night, yet our party of 2 was squeezed in closely to those already sitting and eating. No spacing! Food, fair for the price. Not an overall good experience. Won't go back.
Excellent Chicken Scallopini. Highly recommended.
Very pleasant eating at the outside patio. Good service and very pleasant wait staff!
I spoke to the hostess on arrival asking if my party of 4 could have a table that was under the roof outside. I was told in not so nice manner that that table was reserved.
We were there for 90minutes and the table was never used. If there is one thing I dislike is being lied to. We had a nice meal but as elderly women , we would have been more comfortable where I wanted to sit.
A real disappointment.
Excellent all round despite busy evening
We are glad the restaurant is open,the food was excellent, the service a little slow but the waiter was very nice and attentive.
The food portions got unrealistically small. I got the beet salad and salmon. The salad was tiny and not well balanced compared what it was. I came home and had to eat more to feel satisfied.
Good food but not a good value anymore. Overpriced

Jake is a terrific server. The food was delicious and he served it perfectly. The outdoor patio is terrific.
Lunch. Burrata. With peach and salmon. Two of us split both!
waiter was subpar. forgot to take our entre orders for a long time. aloof attitude.
Perfect! Excellent service! Food is always amazing!
Excellent everything. The mushroom sandwich was delicious.
Very pleasant eating on the outdoor patio. Fans kept the temperature cool.
Our meal was delicious but our dessert was below par. You would expect a tiramisu from an Italian restaurant to be as good as the meal. It was not. Instead, it was soggy and unflavored.
Our waitress was inexperienced or so it seemed. She did not know how to access my Bene membership. So she did not apply my rewards to the tab. We had to insist she redo the check. She tried hard to please us but she was either too busy or did not bother to check my account.
Good choices, service and food. Indoor tables spread out nicely-- outdoor dining covered so can be there when raining or suny
We were celebrating our grandson's going off to college. We always enjoy Paparazzi and wanted him to enjoy it as well. We all had the veal Parmesan along with the mozzarella fingers and calamari and tiramisu. We enjoyed every bite! Our waiter was terrific and very helpful. WE look forward to bringing another grandson here soon.
The patio is quiet, private and pleasant. The service was fair. We asked for a salad and the waiter forgot to put the order in. The service was also a bit slow. The waiter was very nice. The food was very good. The chicken parmigiano is always good, the Bronzino was very tasty.
Our reservation was for 2:00 on a Saturday afternoon. We practically had the entire restaurant to ourselves. There were 9 of us and we were comfortably seated in a long booth that was just perfect. Everyone really enjoyed their entrees as it had been a long time since we were all there and the menu had changed… and all for the better. Look forward to going again soon.
We regret for dining there.
Wonderful food, personable waiter, good spacing between tables. Overall, a very pleasant and reasonably priced experience.
Requested table was ready and greeting was prompt and friendly. Our Server was knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. We were pleased to see some new additions to the menu as we wanted something different. Our cocktails and The Burrata starter were excellent! We also enjoyed the Chicken Piccata with Asparagus Risotto. It was a very good dinner and evening.
Service provided by Kyle was outstanding. Food was was great too.
Food is fresh and authentic
Whether you eat there or take it to go, food is always consistent,
Our waiter was AWESOME!! He made the night!!! :)
A lot of the dining experience includes the service. While service was not poor with respect to attentiveness, it was odd because of the server himself. We learned that he normally is one of the bartenders. My suggestion is that he go back there. Personal appearance, professionalism and faith in the service are all elements which make a great server. Our guy had none of these qualities. As my wife said, the guy was just a bit “creepy” and “socially inept”.
We had not been during the pandemic and were glad to be back. The service was great. I have food allergies (fish/shellfish), and the manager came over to assure me they would take great caution. That level of care makes me able to enjoy dining without worry.
Waiter was very friendly. There are some items on the online menu that are not available at the restaurant. Hoping the larger menu will be available again soon. Drinks and food were all very good, and the outdoor seating was nice.
Good food. Energetic waitstaff. Have increased menu options after a more limited menu post pandemic--
First and most important, they have taken the garlic and lemon chicken off the menu. We have requested it be put back several times. The statler chicken is not a good substitute. 3 of 4 of us wanted the original chicken and 2 ordered the statler chicken and said it was no comparison to the original.
I ordered a Caesar salad with medium rare tenderloin to tips. They arrived burnt and I returned the dish. By the way, the salad was quite skimpy. I got a Caesar salad with grilled shrimp. The salad was adequate on this dish. They comped my meal.
All in all, the menu is now limited and the choices require that we substitute many of the sides.
Let's go back to the original menu. We frequent this restaurant very often, but we're getting skeptical and looking to go elsewhere.
Uncrowded for a late lunch. We opted for inside seating due to hot weather, and majority of tables were open. Both had salads, which were generous in size, fresh and flavorful. He finished his, I took nearly half home for later.
We had a great meal and service was excellent. Enjoyable evening out!
