The food is always consistent and good. I hate the inconsistency of the drink pricing. I have asked how much a house martini is made with the restaurant's well gin and it was always 10 or 11. I am a regular neighbor who eats in this place frequently. I don't want to ask each time. I didn't ask last night and they charged me 13 for a basic martini. This is also the only one of our local places where the bartenders are not friendly and don't get to know us or our order even if I eat there 3 nights in a row! I keep coming back because we live next door and the food is good but I wish it was friendlier and even pricing.

The staff was lovely and the food was fantastic. There was some delay in attention to drinks after being seated outside (as requested to be outside!) but nothing that would stop us from coming back.

A guest in my party ordered the clams and they were all incredibly salty to the point where she could only eat 3, and was not comped from the bill . Kitchen was slow and service was okay, brought our drinks and food sporadically which made the experience less enjoyable.

Food was okay. Great appetizers and vey good coffee ad pistachio desserts. Entrees were not as impressive- we've got the small frozen shrimps for the risotto and non-impressive salmon. The plates that were offered to us first were dirty and we had to ask for a change. The drinks weren't impressive either. Not very worth it given the price range.

Nice restaurant. Food was interesting and well prepared. The menu had interesting and tasty innovations on dishes. We both enjoyed them. We think that their dishwasher needs improvement. My wife's knife had old, crusted food on it and she pointed out to me that all the glasses on the other tables had a foggy glaze on them. Everything seemed clean but both incidents made us doubt the cleanliness.

The meatball appetizer was the star of the night. It was really really good. The entrees were very heavy. I got the chicken dish and the side salad was very bitter. My husband got the crab pasta, he was tired of it after a few bites because it was too rich and heavy. The chocolate coffee pudina was good, the pistachio gelato was good, a little too sweet. Overall decent meal.
