Spent Valentines Day here right before closing time. Very nice place to impress date, not too flashy but has a good vibe.

Good place for a group or a date. Interesting cocktails and light snacks for an "Italian Pub".
Would be nice to add a few more "small plates" like Octopus or other Italian Appetizers / Tapas.

Can be a bit noisy if you're a couple near a big group. Great service...very nice people who took care of us.

Really like the couches & chairs in the lounge are...nice and more quiet for drinks & talk with a date.

Staff was friendly but get ready for an expensive meal for very little food. With that said, the stuffed crispy meatballs were amazing.

4 of the 8 people in my party ordered the Tagliolini. Sadly, all 4 did not like it. Zero flavor.

Love the atmosphere and decor as you walk in.Small selection but interesting menu offerings.Many fun options for seating,not just standard tables.Friendly attractive staff.Loved Ricotta toast,our Kale salad had only trace kalamata olives,Our server suggested a decadent chocolate type pudding that tastes like Milk Duds...definitely get that!

Food was relatively good ... both toasts (avocado and ricotta) were worthies it! We also enjoyed abbottom-less mimosa for $17, which is really convenient!

Food was Phenominal! Meatballs with the perfect crunch and melted cheese in the middle! Great staff with Conner and Sevannah and the music hit the spot. A MUST TRY!

Seated 30 minutes after reservation time. Host kept us updated which was nice, but it was pretty late.
Food was fine, service was fine.
The biggest problem was how loud it was. Could barely hear each other over the noise from other tables. Was bad enough to skip dessert portion of our restaurant week pre-fixe.
Also we weren’t seated at a proper table, our high top chairs didn’t have backs so it was hard to actually relax while straining to have a conversation.
