The waitress brought the draft beer I ordered in a dirty glass. It took quite awhile for her to come back so I could tell her. She did replace the beer but left the full dirty glass on our table for our entire meal

Caesar salad was extra delicious, dinner size was much better & larger than the dinner-size I paid more than double for the night before in a nearby restaurant. I did not particularly care for the rigatoni dish, dry & not much flavor although my friend enjoyed it. The tiramisu was quite good.

Arrived a little early for our reservation and was seated promptly. Our server was Christen and she was wonderful. Wanted to try the fried risotto as an appetizer but no risotto. Both entrees were very good. Rigatoni with chicken and shrimp with angel hair pasta.
Definitely a yes for our next trip

Arrived and said we had no reservation
After showing them our Open Table confirmation, we were seated. It’s been many years since we have encountered a server with such a poor attitude
Finally took our order and after 20 minutes our salads arrived, then the appetizer
After being there 60 minutes we approached our server to check on our pizza, she left and never returned. We then got someone else attention, who was the GM
He apologized and within 5 minutes the pizza arrived
The GM said we could choose a dessert, but our server gave us no choice and later brought out a plate of tiramisu and plopped it on the table along with bill- still the poor attitude persisted
We promptly paid and left
It was amazing to see the line of people waiting for a table
We will not be returning, no matter how good the food is and it is good! Sad, because they do have a unique spin on pizza and salads

Poor service, overcooked (burnt) pizza that would not have been very good even if cooked properly, and dirty dishes and cutlery. Overall a very subpar experience with no redeeming or memorable qualities. This place has a lot of work to do.

Very busy night. Claimed they stopped honoring ion table reservations at 5:00 pm but didn’t let people know. Eventually got in but robot at hostess station was almost in shock. Food was average — arancine bland. Meat toppings for pies very good.

Made reservations via OpenTable. When showed up they said would be over an hour wait AFTER we made reservation. We were told since we made our 9pm reservation after 5:30 “cutoff”, they were just adding us to the list of people waiting on a table. The reservation via OpenTable was useless!!!

They did not acknowledge my OpenTable confirmation. I drove miles to get there, paid $10 for parking, and they told me to be an hour and a half wait. They did not care that I had an open table confirmation number and we’re not willing to serve unless I was willing to wait.

Our waitress and hostesses were incredible, they just seemed short staffed for a Friday night during the holidays and it drastically affected seating people on time. We weren’t seated until an hour after our reservation. However the staff was kind enough to offer us a complimentary drink while we waited, which was so thoughtful, and the food and ambiance was lovely! We would love to return ASAP and recommend to everyone.

Our server Tristin(spelling?) was great. We had a large party, 14. Everything came out fine. No one complained about any of the food. We did everything from appetizers, salads, drinks, pizza/pasta's and desserts. They were great to have lunch at this location. I would go again.

Pizza was fantastic, prices were good, enjoyed ourselves for the 90min we were there.

Con - WWE playing on awkwardly placed TV’s on a intimate Friday night setting, definitely a curveball.

Big Con - Service was just terrible. Unprofessional and lazy. Thankfully we wanted to be left alone so it didn’t matter much but was heavily underwhelming.

Horrible experience! My partner and I had reservations to celebrate our anniversary. I had said through Open Table this was a special anniversary and would appreciate a great seat if possible. We show up on time and are greeted with smells of chlorine and cigars. We walk up the stairs and wait for somebody to greet us. Not one employee smiled throughout our short experience. I tell the hostess we had reservations for our anniversary and she says “Alright you want a booth or table.” I was taken away that she was so short with me, but I said a booth is fine. We saw bugs flying near the kitchen as we walked to our table. We sat at the table for 5-10 minutes, only to be poured water. No hello, welcome, or smiles from any employees. I was furious because this was starting to ruin our celebration, but we got up and left and had a marvelous meal and experience at ALMA Cocina across the street.
Also, I called the next day to mention it to the manager to see what went wrong. We were open to giving them another chance. I was told the general manager would call me back, but he didn’t for 4 days. Just today I got a voice mail from the general manager, and he could not have been more passive aggressive. He was very accusatory about me calling the restaurant “several times” (I called 3 times because they kept telling me he would call me back.) His tone was extremely unprofessional and appeared to place the blame on me - the customer that was let down.
Overall, this was a miserable experience and I will never give them another chance. Would not recommend this place to anyone - ESPECIALLY not for a special occasion.

Very nice ambiance. The service and prices were great. However, we had hoped the pizza would be less soggy than the actual dough was. But all in all a nice experience. I would order pasta next time.

Difficulty getting seated with ignorant hostess indirectly accusing us of looking to steal a reservation. Server was incredibly slow and forced to tip at least 17% at establishment. Prepare for poor service......servers get paid regardless. Food was below average. Wanna be Italian restaurant. Glorified pizza parlor.

The food was very bland and the waiter only came to take our order and give us a drink, she did not come back at all during the meal for checkup, she only came back when it was time to pay. I’d get dominos over eating at this place

We went early on a Friday night before a concert. It was not very crowded so even though we were late to our reservation it was not a problem. They were able to answer ingredient questions for us since we had someone with specific food allergies. Everything came out quickly and tasted great.

The service always seems to be lackluster whenever I go. Having to track down our server a couple different times when we hadn’t seen him for about 10 minutes. I hate to say it, but the last time I came here, I was actually the victim of fraud perpetrated by a server who added 30 bucks to my bill even after I tipped him well for crappy service. I figured I’d give the place another try (and entirely forgot that the manager had offered a free meal a year ago) to make up for the “indescretion” by the last server. I understand that restaurants can’t always control the actions of their employees, but they can demand a higher level of service. Will D. Concierge, The Alastair at Aria Village (And former Ritz Carlton Buckhead Concierge.)

Food was super late, disgusting, and they told us the pizzas would be free because we waited over an hour for them. But when the bill came only one of the three pizzas was free. Service was terrible. We only got a water refill once in the 2 hours we were there.

Food:
Average pizza considering it is a speciality pizza place. The toppings were unevenly spread and the taste was lacking. Tiramisu is amazing though.

Service:
Very poor. It wasn't crowded and I had the reservation yet it took them to seat me and then another 10 minutes for the server to just bring water. It was very poor in terms of what I expected from such a decently priced place

2nd time dining at this restaurant. Lovely interior and love the open kitchen. Only negatives: reservation was at 12p and I had to call them to ask why doors weren’t open, so they didn’t open gates until a bit later than opening. Also, our waiter cut our pizza without gloves. Not a huge deal, but knowing her hands weren’t covered bothered me as it grazed the pizzas.

It's a good restaurant. I went at 9pm, and they got me in relatively quickly, though they were a little disorganized in getting people seated (and one of the hostess was busy talking with a friend/customer while people were waiting to ask for a table). Waitress was very good, prompt, knew the menu well. The food is good quality - you can tell it's fresh and they put in the effort. I got the baked gnocchi appetizer - it was warm and the gnocchi were very fluffy, but some spots of the cheese were still cold, which was weird. The pizza was good. The only thing, and this might be me, is that everything is very creamy with their housemade ricotta. It's well-made, but it diluted the flavor of everything, so all the food seemed underseasoned. A little more acid or basil would probably have balanced it out. Worth trying, but also a little pricey (gnocchi, pizza and a beer $32).
