Had a wonderful anniversary dinner!! We originally made plans to eat outdoors, but staff was accommodating when my allergies flared up. Brandon was an outstanding waiter; made a great appetizer recommendation!

Went during COVID pandemic so ratings on ambience and noise level are a bit skewed. Food was delicious though. Small menu (once again - maybe due to COVID) but what we had was very tasty. Family friendly as well

Beautiful restaurant! One of my favorites at night! The lighting is everything!
The red Sangria is delicious! I enjoyed the Pasta Alla Vodka. Very tasty! My husband really enjoyed the Gorgonzola Crusted Beef Medallions. He only wished the serving size was more generous. He was also very happy they offered craft beer! The bread was served warm and very delicious.
We will be back!

Our server, Brandon, was very good. He gave us the time we need to chat for a while before ordering. He did not rush us at all and allowed us to enjoy the 2 1/2 hours at the restaurant. The meal was very well presented and, as I indicated, the service was very good.

I had dinner here on November 20. I was in no hurry and wanted a nice, leisurely dinner. I started with wine and an appetizer. Both came within minutes of ordering. Then I ordered dinner, which came minutes later, when I was just starting the appetizer. No drink refills were ever offered. All told, from the time I was seated until I was paying my bill only 30 minutes had passed. I realize that some people want quick service, and sometimes service can be too slow. In this instance, though, I felt like they were trying to push me out the door as fast as possible. The food itself was "fine"--not too bad but nothing to write home about either. If I had wanted fast food I would have gone to McDonald's.

Overall, it was a very good experience. The food was excellent and the reduced menu still had lots of choices. Tables were adequately spaced for social distancing which kept the noise to a minimum. They were a tad understaffed, but the waiter was pleasant and apologetic for any delays.

My wanted to go to Brio and we were joined by my oldest daughter. Dino, our server was a perfect balance of helpful but not intrusive. Saw that we had the delicious bread and water. Made helpful suggestions about wine. Speaking of which, the wine selection is one of the more sparse ones we have seen at an Italian restaurant. Was excited about the Shrimp/Lobster Afredo, but the pasta was really sticky therefore hard to separate. The Ladies were satisfied with their dishes.
