Great food (including home made pasta); extensive menu; good location. Service could have been better; once the food was dropped, it took awhile to flag down a staff member for missing items.

Basic pasta meals are high quality and a safe bet - avoid the filet mignon, which was rubbery inside. Service is very attentive; try to avoid back room where large parties and families with small kids are seated.

We were a party of 6 and one meal was completely forgotten. Had to ask more than once for refills on beverages...sauce on one pasta dish was runny and flavorless- had to ask for sweetener with our coffee and then spoons with which to stir the coffee-

I was surprised, as we’ve been to the restaurant before and had better food and service. I hope this was just an off night- but it was off enough that we may take a long time before giving it another try.

We did not get the appetizer we ordered rfs lasr two times there Moth times ur was the artichoke appetizer. We were there on Feb 17. My daughter to the staff that the ladies room was dirty. They said they would get it cleaned. 30 minutes it was still dirty. We go here about once a month. Lately the service has declined and the quality of the food also is not as good as only a few months ago. These coupled with the prices make this place a poor value for the money spent

While it does not look like anything special from the exterior (in a strip mall), the interior has all the ambiance of an Italian restaurant and the food is exceptional. Gluten-Free pasta and pizza options too.

The food was good but the menu for Valentines was very restricted. Plus the prices were jacked up for the special day. The restaurant was packed and very noisy. Our server was good but the general manager handled our check and overcharged us. It got straightened out but all in all it was not a great experience. I guess my recommendation would be to eat here only when they have their regular menu & its not busy.

We went Valentine’s Day, because we had two kids (18 and 13), they sat us in the back room in the “kids” section. The average age of the kids was 7 and under.

Food was fine. Waiter was always showing up at table. I didn’t even have my drink yet and he was back several times asking to take our order. The salad arrived before the appetizer and we were not half way through the salad when the app arrived. I asked him to slow things down. Never asked if we wanted more wine, coffee or dessert. Just left the check. We did say we wanted coffee and was served. I will not be back to this restaurant. Dropping $100 and being rushed is not how I dine out

Overrated and overcrowded. We had reservations at 6:30 for 4. There was a line out the door of people giving their names. I had to push my way to the beginning of the line to let them know I had a reservation. We did get seated right away. It took 10 minutes for waiter to come over and ask for our drinks. Service was very slow throughout the evening. Waiters seemed overwhelmed. My friend's knife was dirty. Had to ask 4 times for a new knife before she finally got one. Calamari was excellent. Seafood bisque was okay but had way too much salt in it. I felt like my blood pressure was going up. Friends liked their entrees which was Veal Parm. However, I got the stuffed shrimp for $25.00. Shrimp was cooked too long because it was dry and tough. I could barely cut it. It was also very salty. Waiter wasn't around so I didn't say anything. Waiter never came to ask if we wanted coffee or desert. I had my credit card on the table BEFORE we even got the bill. All of a sudden the owner comes over and snatches it. I quickly said we never got the bill, but he kept on going. He came back without a run down of the bill, just the total and charged the whole bill on my card when we were going to split the bill with our friends. Very rude. Then people came over to wipe off the table before we could even get up. Apparently, there were people waiting for the table. Wow...so rude. Never again.

Our second visit since this restaurant opened and they have definitely worked out any service issues other diners previously reported. As a matter of fact, they have a lot of staff and the service was excellent. Our dinners were delicious (we both had veal entrees) and the portions very generous. My one and only concern is the restaurant was freezing. It was a very humid 90 degrees outside so it never occurred to me to bring a sweater or jacket, but obviously frequent diners were in the know. Many people brought or went to their cars to grab jackets. The staff was well aware of the chilly air, but told us they cannot do anything about it because if they raise the temp, the condensation in the restaurant becomes a major problem.

We will definitely return (perhaps after the air conditioning weather) because the menu/food is excellent as is the service.
