The food was delicious. However, we were very disappointed they did not offer small salads to go with our entrees.
Also disappointed that the only happy hour is at the bar. This would not work for the group we planned to bring next week.
Our server was pleasant and accommodating.

The restaurant is adorable! Light and bright! We sat outside on the patio which was amazing. The service was very good, the food was excellent - although on the pricey side. We'd definitely go back!

Unfortunately, our experience was not good. This dinner was an anniversary dinner for me and my husband. They didn’t acknowledge that though it was noted on the reservation. The waitress’ clothing was dirty. The sat us at a small table facing the parking lot. The benches were dusty and condensation from the AC dripped down on the table next to us. There was not that many people in the restaurant so plenty of more spacious tables were available. The menu was pricy for what was served. The meatball appetizer was very salty. The margarita pizza sauce was the same as their pasta sauce. They told me that they were out of the biscotti that came with my dessert, but still charged the full price. There was a $3.00 up charge for wanting rigatoni with the pomadoro sauce versus spaghetti. Unfortunately this is the 2nd or 3rd restaurant at this location. Not sure they will last. The Instagram pics were deceiving.

Service was very slow- and

The food at this restaurant is not edible. I ordered the grouper special it was overcooked the sauce was salty.
The eggplant side dish was served undercooked; my husband ordered lamb chops that were over seasoned and doused in a poor tasting cream sauce.

This restaurant needs to reevaluate their kitchen especially for the prices they are charging. We will not be dining here again.

I was disappointed in the food. I ordered Veal Saltimbacca. It consisted of piece of veal and I don't honestly remember if it was wrapped in prosciutto because I didn't taste any. It was piled very high with arugula. It could have used some vegetable or starch. It did not have much flavor. The server was very good and the drinks were very good. My friend had salmon and it too was flavorless. She also had the eggplant appetizer which was flavorless and undercooked. My beet salad was very good.

Service was not great. A party seated before us was waited on and served before us. Our server had to be reminded that we needed water several times. The food wasn’t that good. My hanger steak was over cooked; there were probably five potatoes for every piece of steak. The gnocchi was overly seasoned with garlic; it overpowered the pesto. Pretty much a “fail”.

We waited for 10 min. before any wait staff came to our table. The waitress who came was very nice, but told us it wasn’t her table- but she’d take care of us since she noticed we were neglected. It wasn’t that busy and we saw plenty of servers- ours just didn’t take care of us.
The food was overly salted. The Pomodoro sauce had a STRONG taste of celery salt? My husband got the gnocchi and said the dumplings were good- but he couldn’t identify what exactly was in the sauce. We ordered meatballs- which were tender, but again, overly salted. I really wanted to like this place- but we won’t be back, unfortunately. Just not a good experience.

A disappointment. I had veal saltimboca that was not pounded thin, was over-salted and over-cooked; probably deep fried. My companion had a dish described as Italian chili, which she liked. At the end a tech failure prevented paying with a credit card. It took a while to persuade them to bill me. Megan was an excellent server. Also positive was the small but very good wine list.

Food was very good, service was a bit slow due to the lack of staff, only one bartender for a busy Friday night. Waited at least 20 mins for drinks. I will return .

This is not your usual “American Italian” fare. Only one tomato based spaghetti option.

Wine list needs more of a mid priced range for bottles.

The glasses for the wine were dirty and barely clean. The gave us new glasses but even though they dried those they were not very clear. They looked cloudy. The food was only so so. We will not go back.

Wanted to try this new restaurant and had moderate expectations, just due to its recent opening. It was phenomenal! We started with the arancini and decided we wanted to come back based on that alone. My husband got the spaghetti with meatballs and said it was some of the best meatballs he had ever had. I had the gnocchi and it was delicious. Portions are large and we left full. Even the bread they have at the tables was delicious. Can’t wait to get back and try some more items.

Was worried about service based on some reviews but we found the service to be great, especially with it being a new restaurant. There was a little confusion among the staff over who had our table but it just meant we had multiple people checking on us. Food came out quickly and everyone was pleasant.

My meal,gnocchi, was very good. I will return. Our waitress was very attentive and accommodating. My only suggestion is in a Italian restaurant that has high end food choices the staff should be educated in the correct pronunciation of the Italian dishes.

The restaurant is new and it shows it. A touch unorganized but nothing that can’t be fixed.

Apps. Good. Dinners good. Service just needs to get their feet on the ground a bit.

Will go back in about a month.

The food was excellent and unique. Highly recommend the Chicken Parmesan “Pizza” with a side of red sauce! The menu has something for everyone. The floor plan is very open, and a bit on the louder side as we were around at a busy time for dinner on a Friday night. Nice, new venue that is still getting its bearings and has great potential. Worth a visit if you are in the area, and haven’t been!

Had a reservation at 5:30…we were greeted nicely as we entered and seated promptly. Very nice-looking place. Clean and modern. Our server came right over to take our drink order. Very good server. We wanted the Arancini as an appetizer. She said they were out of that. Not her fault….they opened at 4 and we were there at 5:30….already out??? Such a turn off when a restaurant runs out of food. So, we ordered a caprese salad and a fresh greens salad. They were pretty good. For the entrees, We had carbonara, which was ok. Kind of on the cold side when it was served. Spaghetti pomodoro with Kobe meatballs. Not sure what the pomodoro was. It was spaghetti and meatballs. The sauce was bland. They need to spice it up a little. There was nothing that I would go back for at this restaurant. My bill came to $74. So over-priced! Disappointed to say the least.

Food was just ok. Service seemed kind of hectic which can be expected. The calamari is probably the best in Ohio. We did not get served bread when we sat down like everyone else around us did. So with having pasta for dinner we had to ask for the bread. We ordered espresso but it came with milk. Overall it was ok, but not something I would come back for.
