Great service, our waiter was very knowledgeable. We were there on $10 pasta Tuesdays - well worth it! We will definitely be back again! Hopefully will save room for dessert.

We have been to A B before went back due to positive experiences
Unfortunately this visit was no that enjoyable
Food was ok service not that good waiter pouring water in glass spilled half the pitcher on the table walked away without offering to clean I had to ask for napkins and wipe up myself
Two dinners had pasta dishes no one ever came around offering cheese
When I received my coffee half was spilled in saucer
There was a teen birthday party of around 15 people in main dinning room extremely loud should have been in separate room

I had dinner at the bar. As always, JoAnne was incredible. Great bartender and server. The vegetarian options are great , although I wish they had more. The pumpkin soup was awesome. JoAnne kept the bar alive- well someone has to! Thanks for a great night, great drinks and food ! And to Angelo - “I’ll pesce ...”

Food was amazing. Quaint room. Only downfall was that we wanted the butternut squash risotto which was in special menu and they didn’t have it. Highly recommend this restaurant

A little disappointing since I had heard such great things. Calamari and baked clams were too chewy, but the mozzarella spiedini was delicious. My husband ordered veal marsala which was not tender and my sister-in-law and I ordered Shrimp oreganata which was overcooked and dry, which made the shrimp tough. As I expected, dessert was great. Caramel cone cheesecake, fried cheesecake and cannoli cream with the broken cannoli shel chips were all fabulous. I would definitely go back for dessert.

So disappointed. The gnocchi special lacked flavor. The cannoli chips and dip for two was very good but You got a pile of chips and the tiniest bowl of dip. The service wasn’t good either. They never refilled our water or asked if I would like another drink. With the exception of one other party we were the only people in the place. I really hope this was just an off night because I really like this place.

Escarole & Beans was not on menu but I asked the server to ask the chef if it can be made ( they have pasta fagioli on the menu do I knew they had the cannellini beans). The owner came over to me & asked red base ok, of course I said “yes”. It was delicious! Beware: a small bowl is no small portion!

This review is based on a pre-set Easter Menu. The variety was great and the food tasted good except that a lot of the food was room temp to cold...would have been excellent if it was served hot. Service was very good. Noise level...ridiculously loud. I felt like I was screaming so the person right next to me could hear me.

I have eaten here before and really enjoyed it...so I would prob go back...but not on a Holiday with a pre-set menu.

I made a reservation on opentable. When I arrived, the manager stated to the hostess, where the hell did this reservation come from?!?! They told us it that it would be at least an hour wait. Not professional. We left. If they can't accommodate a reservation, they should have blocked opentable or at least called me beforehand.

There were 2 parties going on in the restaurant when we arrived. It was noisy!!! The menu was average. The service was excellent. The food was good but for the price it should have been spectacular..... I probably will not return.

The food was delicious and the service was good! Things to keep in mind: the noise levels on a Saturday night do not allow for an intimate dinner so it is ideal for groups.

Cons: Half of my table requested risotto as a side. Unfortunately, they were not told until the dishes came out that they had ran out of risotto. Please let guests know if there are any changes to their initial order.
