    As always, a lovely dinner. The agnolotti special was superb, the veal delightful, and the eggplant parmigiana was excellent. A neighborhood gem.

    A La is a neighborhood gem that is not pretentious and serves lovely, quality food at reasonable prices. The food is fresh, the drinks are happy, and the waitstaff is kind, attentive, and cheerful. My agnolotti was just fantastic. The bruschetta was fresh and flavorful. I also tasted a bit of eggplant parm and it was so good too. I hope when the building kicks them out, that they stay around here!!

    Caesar salad, four cheese ravioli, eggplant parmigiana. All excellently prepared and presented. Very friendly, happy staff. Had a table of 8 talking nonsense about AR-15s, 2A rights, and Tesla stock P/E ratio next to me. Other than that, a pleasant dinner.

    Always outstanding! We're so sorry that the restaurant will be closing later this year to make way for a new multi-story development. It will be a big loss for the neighborhood!

    This restaurant had good reviews. The food was blah. We ordered calamari, for $16 we received not even 10 pieces. The mouse desert for $9.50 was whipped cream with mouse piped on top to make it look like a full bowl. The booth had no cushion that I felt a rod or something the entire time I sat. Would not go back or recommend.
