Our reservation was for 7:30 - There were tables open but they forgot about us and I had to go up to inquire 20 minutes late. We didn’t get our drinks until 8:15 and we didn’t get our entree until 9:20- This was not our first time here here but it will be our last. Our waitress forgot our drink order the first time and never asked us again if we wanted another. My husband later told me what the bill was and I am confident it was wrong. We order an app one sangria and an Arnold Palmer- a house salad and a regular salad and it was $126 without tip. I don’t recommend-

Love this restaurant, it’s great Italian food at reasonable rates. The outdoor dining is very nice - service however was quite slow. After multiple years working in restaurant industry I can honestly say I did not understand the staffing. The waiters & waitresses appeared to have 5 tables a each but were rarely visible - all I can assume is that their section also included tables inside which is very poor organization

Calamari spicier and not nearly as crisp as last visit.
Thermostat off a bit - was quite warm - and difficult to talk with noise level.

We went on Saturday night and it appears they have just opened the outside dining for the summer season. It is still under construction which is fine. The food was excellent. The ambiance was nice. Our waiter was attentive without being annoying. Some of the other staff were not as professional as they should have been. There was confusion on how patrons should be ushered into the area and it led to loud reprisals from across the seating area. It was a very hot night and staff were wiping sweat from their face and neck in full view of patrons, as if to remind us of how hot they were (hint hint). The person who appeared to be most in charge was oblivious to these infractions. A musician arrived during our meal and quite a bit of commotion was created in getting him set up with electricity. Then he conducted a prolonged sound check ("check...one, check...one") that seemed a bit much for the impending event.

However, that is really nitpicking. The food was very good. The sauces were not too heavy, they were flavorful and portions were just right. Not too little and not so much we left with extra. The bathroom was new and clean. The inside seating was very tight so getting to the bathroom involved walking sideways between tables.

All in all we had a good experience and will return... just hopefully on a night when it is not so hot!

You are missing out if you have not been to this restaurant! It was our friends 57th birthday and there was five of us and it was the most perfect celebration. Food was amazing. Had the chicken saltimbocca, oysters, fried ravioli, tortellini and the manicotti! Plus it was half off bottles of wine since it was Wednesday! They had two men that professionally sang karaoke; they were fun, loud energetic and the specialized in the oldies/60/70s music. Desert topped off the night, we had the cannolis and bread pudding.

My husband ordered the Steak Aliano - medium rare. He cut into it and tasted it and found it to be medium. He spoke to the waiter who was polite and apologetic. But then the manager came out with the plate and told him it WAS medium rare and the lighting was the reason he thought it was medium.
First, he tasted the steak not just looked at it. Second its an expensive meal and it should come out as expected. The manager shouldn't bring the same steak out and blame the customer.
We eat at fine steak houses frequently and my husband certainly knows a properly prepared steak. It was insulting for the manager to come out, blame the customer and try to hand him the same plate of food. The other dinners at our table were good and we did enjoy the ambiance of the restaurant. The waiter was very good, the manager was disappointing...
