Service was fantastic. Cheese and meat board was great. I got the chicken parm pizza - give that 7.5/10 - good but was way too large and was a tad soggy. Fiancé got the seafood pasta and said it was good. Bread could have been better. Oh - and the Antica Mule - out of this world 10/10!

Made a reservation for Christmas Eve for me and my husband’s date night. We were seated at an awkward but comfy table for four. Our servers made recommendations and were very attentive and helpful. The bread and olive oil was warm and superb. The salad portion was large so me and my husband shared one. We both had the specials which were well portioned and flavorful. Overall it was a good experience and would return if I wanted a fancier alternative to Olive Garden. The biggest downside was to price which seemed like a bit too much for just the two of us.

Super pleasant experience. We came to check out the chicken Parmesan that was featured on Cleveland Magazine. Definitely worth the trip! We will be back to check out the rest of the menu items, they all sound good.

We we ignored by the wait staff for the first 5 minutes. My wife’s meatballs were cold and had to be sent back. The food was of poor quality and not worth the price that was charged.

Restaurant was relatively empty on a Tuesday night so my reservations weren't needed. The service was quick, attentive, and helpful. The meatballs and the burrata appetizers were very good. The chicken parm pizza very interesting and probably would feed 4 people. Will be back.

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.

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.
