Great food. Great service. They even brought an amazing dessert out with a candle on it for my Birthday! Table was marked with confetti. Very impressive!

Everything was good, however the seafood in the Linguini Pescatore was quite overcooked.

We come here often and the food is usually great. This night the food was below average and the service was the worst I believe I have EVER had. The waiter was working behind the bar and totally ignored us. We were there 35 minutes before he took our order (after having to get a waitress to go get him). after our order was placed we waited another 40 minutes before the food was presented. It was not busy that night, so I don't know whether the kitchen was slow or our waiter did not put in our order right away. This was a table of 4 and they charged us a 20 percent tip which they have never done before. No wonder the waiter was not concerned with our service. I don't believe I will ever go back. My friends say the same.

In this weird time, it's so nice to go to a lovely spot with great food that also takes precautions to ensure a safe experience. This is all that, and the patio on a fall evening turning cool was made even warmer by heaters and lovely staff.

$300 bill for three people is excessive. We were the first ones there (5pm) on Sunday. We did not get our entrees until after 6pm. Nice outdoor seating area with heaters.

I went with my sister and my daughter for my birthday. We had scallops, calamari and a salad for a shard appetizer. Thought delicious by all. We were full and satisfied but had to have the 2 pizzas we ordered. We had a slice of each and declared them the best ever, both that night and the next day!

Festive out on the patio with the gas firepits & heaters & little white lights strung overhead. Father & I had a super Pinot Grigio to sip in this setting. Went with the special Burratta salad and the Rockfish, which the waitstaff were very accommodating about splitting between us. Delicious. The perfect October evening al fresco meal.

The food was not nearly as good as before the pandemic. Parts of it seemed almost cafeteria level. I know that sounds harsh, but this was a great restaurant. Receiving sub-par dressing in a plastic container didn’t help. Poorly presented appetizers and salads. Why couldn’t they drizzle the dressing over our burrata or toss our salad with the dressing? Just not clear at all. And why couldn’t I receive fresh ground Parmesan rather than what seemed to be packaged stuff in another plastic container? And no fresh ground pepper. There has to be a way! The little paper packages just aren’t up to snuff. The appetizer, salad, and pizza all suffered, but the pasta was as good as ever.

The server was lovely and the wine was wonderful. But overall it simply was not great.

Service was excellent. Food was well prepared and arrived to the table in a timely manner.
I found that the "social distancing" between my table and the table behind mine was a bit closer than I expected.
Would return again!

We love Azzurro but hadn’t been since COVID. While they blocked off some tables, there were two large groups of 10. Didn’t feel particularly safe. Would only dine there if we could eat outside.

Risotto’s texture suggested a precooked batch rather than individually made as was represented when asked. . Nothing special about the chicken, tomato and saffron( could hardly taste it...) risotto. Would not order again.

The food wasn’t great and we split the checks which automatically applied a 20% gratuity which I’ve never heard of before. Two of the checks also had to be sent back because the total was incorrect. I was charged for 3 drinks when I got 1.

Primary reason for 3 stars is that the food was not up to our expectations- not as good as our previous visits (in my opinion) - my pasta was too heavy and the depth of taste was not quite there - my wife’s pizza was ok but we have had better in the past few months (Mellow Mushroom, 8 1/2 for example)
