Food was so-so. Service was terrible, which I understand given shorty staffing, but still…

I had to walk out - waited 20 minutes to get a class of water never took a drink order. They had huge staffing issues. I did feel bad but really did not have choice

We went for Christmas Eve dinner. Our table was ready when we got there, it was in a nice booth in the center off all the tables. We thought it might be noisy, but it wasn’t. My daughter liked her chicken Marsala, but I didn’t care for my fettuccine Alfredo. I took it home in a box, but more so that other people in my party would think I liked it.

Service was poor. Waitress rarely came to table and did not refill drinks. We asked twice for a desert menu and she brought us the check instead. Disappointing experience since we were celebrating seeing family for the first time since the pandemic started.

A waiter should not give you the check while people are still eating their main courses… They should also ask if you want o look at the dessert menu - after you’ve finished you’re main course… Very disappointing- felt like a very low end restaurant… Food was ok though

Even though they're still short staffed, the service was great! The food was great, too! We had a house salad and chopped salad, both fresh and delicious. I had the pepperoni flatbread for my entrée. It was done just right. My husband's gluten free Pasta Bravo was perfect, too. They're really struggling to get staff, but the quality of food and service is doing well. One note of warning, tho. I'd advise making a reservation, because the reason they're able to give such good service is they're limiting the number of tables they'll seat based on their staff levels.

Sat on outside patio beautiful day was perfect setting. Had a cup of the Lobster bisque and the Insalata della casa, both were very good. It was just enough for a small lunch. The bread served at the table was delish. Very satisfied with the meal.

Our waiter was great and we were seated right at our reservation time. Food quality left a little to be desired overall. The chicken was barely noticeable in the chopped chicken salad. It was cubed and mixed in, not freshly grilled and added like we expected. 2 alfredo pasta dishes were served and had obvioulsy been sitting for a while because the noodles had dried out....the waiter brought an extra bowl of alfredo to attempt to compensate. Just kind of sad how the quality has dropped off, this used to be one of our favorite restaurants. Not sure whether to chalk up to current staff shortage issue but overall wasn't a great experience.

Most of our food was great, but one of our meals tasted like it had come into contact with some kind of cleaner, yuck. Staff took care of it. Our server was nice, but made us wait 20 to check out! We couldn't get her attention.

Waited 5 minutes at hostess stand before someone came to seat us. Server took our orders without writing anything down, and came back twice to check if she had everything right. Then after waiting a consicerable period for our meal, server came to our table to say food wopuld be here shortly, that she was waiting for salmon to be prepared. Problem was, we did not order salmon. Finally food arrived. Then we got the bill, which included a salmon meal. Server had an attitude.

Unusual to see a mostly empty restaurant on a Saturday night. Concerned as to why. Several items out of stock.
One food item served barely warm and had to be sent back. We won’t be going back.

Gluten-free pasta dishes are plentiful at a very reasonable price. Ordered the della casa salad which said "mixed greens" on the menu. However, when it was served it was chopped lettuce. Ugh! The server quickly brought a plate of mixed greens. If you order eggplant parm, be sure you tell them to put cheese on BOTH pieces of eggplant. Despite all of this, the food was very tasty and served piping hot.
