Expected better. The mashed potatoes seemed to be preformed, perhaps from a frozen box. The service was mediocre. Our waitperson would disappear for 10-15 minutes, while the table across from us had constant attention from a different waitperson.

Once again, this location has hit a home run. No only were they proactive in relocating outdoor patrons to a safe and dry location well in advance of a very strong T-Storm, the service and food quality were outstanding. Everything piping hot, salad fixings crisp and fresh. pours on drinks comensurate with pricing, desserts very tasty.
Will return again.

We love the restaurant and have eaten there many many times. It is always consistant and the atmosphere, especially outside is wonderful. My only complaint is that I ordered a salad and want to add a fish side and the restaurant will not do this. I asked for either salmon or grouper and they would only add chicken or shrimp. If they would have added salmon or grouper they would have had to charge me for the full entre.

Good news: server Megan and hostess Anna Maria went above and beyond. Also the wonderful musician and overall ambience were outstanding.
Not so good news: the food. We enjoyed the Fichi, but the fried olives had a very thick breaded crust, the mussels were tasteless, the broccoli rabe so tough we couldn’t cut it and the asparagus was limp and over cooked. Last but not least a swarm of flies descended on us.
This is a lovely spot, we’ll trained and excellent wait staff and the prices provide ample choice and value but the food …they can do better.

Our food was not good at all. The Caesar salad was bitter and the dressing bland. I had a chicken dish with artichokes and white wine and the chicken was tough and dry. My husband ordered chicken Parm which was not the best. The sauce was sweet and bland.

As is our practice, we dined from the Early Bird menu, which is a great value. The portions are slightly smaller, well-suited to our older stomachs. The calamari with Rosa sauce is our favorite dish here as an appetizer. Both our entrees, grouper and veal marsala, were excellent. The only slight negative was the roasted vegetables with the veal that were inconsistently done, some undercooked, others overcooked. Having ben well fed, we took our dessert home for later.
