    I had requested a quiet room away from the kitchen and food preparation areas. My husband has hearing problems, and it’s hard to carry on a conversation when we got there they did put us up into a quiet area, but a large group of people were seated by us a group of 8-10 people not that it was the waitresses fault but once they began talking we could not Hear each other we explained to her and they put us in the Emperor room which was very quiet. They couldn’t have been more helpful and understanding which we both really appreciate it. 👍

    We had a fantastic meal mainly choosing their signature dishes, such as their gigantic meatball and fried cheese for appetizers, veal chop, and best ever tiramisu! The wine selection has been expanded since our last visit. We loved the decor associated with their expansion to the theater next door. The space is amazing! Finally Mark our server was amazing: so knowledgeable and friendly! We will definitely be back!

    Amazing ambience, wonderful service, and the best food I’ve ever had. Melt in your mouth steak. The meal was served in courses, so pace yourself. Parking on the street was a little tricky, that was the only downfall. Worth the walk!

    My wife and I went here for the first time before an evening show. We had no idea the service was a 4 course meal, as our waitress never communicated that important detail to us. We were seated in a small room with two other tables positioned in front of what seemed to be the appetizer prep station. It was difficult to have normal conversation with the chefs staring at you accompanied by waiters and waitresses waiting for their appetizers - resulting in a lovely view of their behinds while we ate. The food was mediocre, the vodka pasta resembled that of a preheated elementary meal for a child. The chicken Margarita was a poor rendition of chicken bruschetta with grass clippings on top. We will not be returning.

    I have been there unless than 10 times. I am accustomed to exceptional customer service ~ this was not the case ! The night started off with our waitress asking if my daughter “was it the price “ when making wine selections. This was incredibly insulting as she suggested we couldn’t afford a bottle of wine. Also - the upgraded pasta was dry and awful. The waitress didn’t even bother to explain what process - as every other waitress staff I’ve encountered had.- I expected more and was embarrassed to take my daughter there for her graduation and have such abysmal service

    Our first visit at this restaurant and we were seated directly in front of the kitchen, so it was fairly noisy. The kitchen has an open concept, so we are watching all the meals being prepared. The service was slower than we would like, but our waitress explained everything to us. The food was good, not great. Drinks and wine were very good. This is not your typical Italian restaurant. I don't think we will be back. Maybe if we had been seated at a table other than directly in front of the kitchen, I would rate it higher.

    This is the second time we ate at this restaurant. Overall it was very good. They are very willing to make sure everything is to your liking. My husband had the tagliatelle seafood pasta and it was wonderful. I had the house pasta Cacia Pepe without the pepper. It wasn't quite as outstanding as the first time I had it, but perhaps that was because I had asked for it to be made with tagliatelle pasta instead of spaghetti. The Caesar salads were good, but the house salads are more impressive. I would caution anyone who doesn't like pepper or any kind of heat - even minor - in their foods that the chefs like to spice things up a little. Not a lot in many cases, but it is in there and if one is sensitive to it you will taste it.

    Eaten here twice...got the double bone veal chop both times. Fabulous wine list and knowledgeable servers - and there are a lot of good old world options. We ordered the pasta course served with the main so that we didn't get filled up on starch before protein. We also split the veal entree but ordered appetizers for this second visit. Highly recommended...just go hungry.

    Went for my wife's birthday. Service and food are excellent. Had the fried provolone as an app - fantastic. Caesar salad was fine, not worth the upcharge. Pasta was delicious with the chili oil drizzled over top. Will definitely try the Parmigiana style pasta next time served table side in a cheese wheel. Veal Chop was out of this world good. They gave us a lemon blueberry bar for her birthday and we ordered a cannoli. Both were very good. We had a bottle of wine and shared a delicious espresso martini. Great meal and service. Good for a special occasion.
