I will return - Saturday night was a bit noisy for aging parents although the service was great for a party of eight!

First time here. Solid Italian restaurant. Service was prompt and polite but felt a tad rushed. Atmosphere is very comfortable.

Rebecca did a fabulous job serving our group of eight! The restaurant was very busy but we were seated promptly and She served us bread while we waited for our wine orders to be filled. Food was delicious! She had a smile on her face and good attitude even though it was hard to move between tables since so many people were eating out on a Saturday night! Love this great neighborhood restaurant!.

Service was great. Food was not as good as usual. I usually LOVE the carbonara, but tonight it was not creamy (it was broken) and very oily. I intentionally left the "to go" leftovers. My husband's spaghetti and meatballs were fine.

Waitress said she would bring us some bread, but evidently forgot. I notified another waiter about the problem. Shortly thereafter the waitress brought us our bread and apologized for the delay.

Food service was very slow.

Overall the food is good. The service is lacking. I felt our waiter threw the plates on our table and ended our dining experience by throwing the bill on the table on his way to his next table. Unsure why the attitude.

Our waiter was new, but if he hadn't told we would never have known. He was knowledgeable regarding all the menu items. We love the unpretentious atmosphere with excellent food.

Excellent food, and I can’t say enough good things about the service. The other part of my party was late and we were the last table in the restaurant. They couldn’t have been more understanding and accommodating. Great people, great food!

Food was very good. Cannolis are the best in town. Wait staff was nice and tried to be very accommodating. Issues with splitting meals as the menu states large and clear that No split meals allowed. This was a total shocker and was new to us as we’ve eaten here sporadically over the years. Also management had an issue with a discount coupon one of our group had. Hard to believe in this day and age a Resturant would be so restricting to paying customers. Overall, the food was a good enough factor that we will return.

Consistently good Italian food. Olive oil and garlic is always a great starter. Get the mussels and calamari as appetizers. Chicken parmigiana is my favorite with extra garlic.

We have been to Italy nearly 20 times and have had long stays in Positano, so we went to this restaurant for the name as much as anything and because it was a good meeting place with our friends, as they live in Charlotte and we live in Raleigh. We were all pleasantly surprised by how good the food was and our waiter, Jeff, was very accommodating. Would like to see some white wines from Campania on the list instead of more than one Pinot Grigio choices. Would good again.

This is a nice neighborhood restaurant. We almost always have a really nice meal here. It's a relatively small restaurant with very good service and very good food. We think the price is reasonable for the quality of what we receive.

My one negative point concerning our recent meal here: The wall next to our booth needs to be cleaned. It wasn't terrible, but it certainly wasn't what we'd expect from a restaurant of this caliber.

Nice spot for lunch. Friendly service. Food is good but I wouldn’t say anything was outstanding. My sister and I agreed that the marinara (gravy) was way too sweet. Tomatoes don’t need added sugar in our humble opinion.

It was my birthday and the first time I have ever eaten there. Absolutely best Italian restaurant I have eaten at hands down. The staff were excellent and the food was fresh and so good. We had a dinner party of 7 and everyone bragged on how delicious the food was. Definitely my new favorite place to eat

Our server and our food was excellent. The two hostesses seemed to be completely unable to manage or problem-solve. Despite having a reservation, they couldn't seem to remember how many were in our party and seated two large walk-in groups prior to seating us. We were not seated until 25 minutes after our reservation. The wait-staff was completely swamped, but were clearly doing their best. My suspicion is that this is a management and a training issue.

Would happily have our server and food again, but it's hard to feel excited about going back due to the confusion and bad attitudes from the hostesses. It is unfortunate when the people greeting customers appear to be lacking competence.
