My wifes 80th birthday; our waitress was very attentive and disappointed when we didn’t select desert as we were too full from our meals; it would have been complementary.

The food just wasn't very good--nothing terrible, but underseasoned, and just eh, especially for the price. (with the exception of the lambchops, which were excellent, but don't require much skill - right?) Service was friendly, but it was hard to communicate - waiter seemed a bit out of sync with the timing of the meal and kitchen.

I met a friend of mine for dinner. Started with the Bocioccinni salad - the cheese was beautiful; the tomatoes a little wooden - my fault, they are out of season. Had the braised short rib .... great comfort food; washed down with a Barbaresco - nice.

The first time in many visits the food came out only moderately warm. I did not send it back because I was hungry.

We will be back. Absolutely the most freshest ingredients, delicious homemade tasting pasta, warm friendly staff and lovely restaurant decor and ambiance. Love the Italian writings on the wall. The dessert, we are still talking about the pana cotta! You made my daughter's 28th birthday very special. Love your Peach Bellini! Excellent. Thank you!

Great meal right before we went to a show. The pastas were delicious. Linguini Bolognese and tulle mushroom pasta dish were both delicious. Really everything we ordered was fantastic.

This is a regular stop for me. This most recent visit resulted in cold food being served to me. When I was there the prior week they got my order wrong. Both instances were corrected, but they should not have happened in the first place.

Great food but super slow service. Had to ask for the bill and for water three times. I think they were understaffed. Too bad because the pasta is great. They also forgot our sides

Bait and switch at Boca Di Bacco. Two people in my party were excited to order the Halibut special, but instead received some sort of combo platter that included Halibut, Salmon and Snapper (two other fishes on the regular menu). It was pretty obvious that they ran out of Halibut, but rather than be honest about it, they created something entirely different than what we ordered. Plus, the snapper and Halibut were both over cooked. The worst part was the lack of service recovery. The waitress offered to buy us a drink or dessert. We asked to speak with a Manager. That never happened, but the waitress apparently received approval for one plate to be removed from our bill. We were very disappointed and will not be returning anytime soon.

The food is incredible. I had the parmesan crusted chicken, which was the best I ever had. My husband, who has been making homemade gnocchi for family and friends for 30+ years tried the gnocchi and was very pleasantly surprised. They were fresh and really were homemade, not the hard, dense belly bombers that other places say are homemade. My daughter had the fettucini bolognese and was sad there was nothing left to take home. The staff are on top of their game and very friendly.

Amazing food here -- this is our second time getting the Involtini di Melanzane e Ricotta (eggplant, ricotta roll up w/ tomato sauce) as an appetizer, and I seriously dream about the next time I get to have it. It might be the most perfect dish in the world. For entrees, my daughter had the Torelli Ricotta e Spinaci, and I had the Pollo Crostato (parmigiano crusted chicken, spinach, white wine lemon sauce) -- both were outrageously wonderful. I just cannot recommend this place enough. The bread is delicious! Looking forward to our next visit here, already!

Poor service - pretty much everything that turned up was wrong. And even when corrected, the pasta was really bad. To be fair, the branzino was good - but that was the only highlight of an otherwise disappointing dinner. Wine list was good and fairly priced.

We were two in our party for pre-theater lunch. The restaurant was not crowed. Both of our orders came back incorrect. The waiter said there was a new chef. That's no excuse. The food was mediocre. It shouldn't be hard to make a decent omelet with goat cheese and spinach, or a kale and quinoa salad.
