My friends and I decided to dine here to celebrate my birthday. Right off the bat the host and server acknowledged and greeted me happy birthday!

Seating: They sat us in a booth with the comfy chairs. Surprisingly we all fit, although it was kind of tight. There was a longer table in front of us that could probably fit us better but it was already sat by 2 people.

Our server gave us the complimentary bread with the oil and vinegar sauce. (They’re addicting)

The food was amazing! You can never go wrong with their food. Each dish we ordered was so tasty and filling.

We ordered:
Large Calamari
Small Caesar Salad
Small Spaghetti with meatballs
Small Chicken Carbonara (Our server recommended us this instead of the fettuccine Alfredo because of the price difference to add chicken. Which thank God we got this because it was bomb)

We shared the dishes and it was enough for all 6 of us!

Our server gave two scoops of ice cream as complimentary for my birthday. Again, so thoughtful!

I enjoyed dining here. I definitely recommend for any occasion!

My husband and I went on a Thursday night in August and we sat inside but close to the outside seating. It was freezing! I asked if the a/c could be adjusted and was told it couldn’t. We ordered calamari and penne a la vodka with grilled chicken added. Because the a/c was on blast, the food was cold by the time it reached our table. I enjoy eating warm to hot food and the food was cold as soon as I took my first bit. The calamari was just okay. The menu says only the marinara sauce is spicy but I ate the calamari alone and it was spicy! I guess the breading had spice in it. Wasn’t a fan. The penne a la vodka was just okay too. Nothing special and definitely not worth the price. My favorite pizzeria in NY has better penne a la vodka. The chicken that we asked to be added to the pasta was bland but a good amount of white meat chicken. Overall I wouldn’t go back to this restaurant and it was not worth the $75 I paid for an appetizer and a single pasta dish.

Great customer service!
Huge portions. Some of the food arrived hot but not too hot in the middle. The photographer is a little irritating. He said it was complementary so we let him take some photos. When he came back with the photos, he gave us a cute group photo that was complementary but when we decided NOT to purchase any, I could catch an upset vibe from him. Other than that… Overall good experience.

Re: Covid: Tables really close together. Guests leaving tables to go to the restroom without their masks. Children running around without supervision too.
Re: Service/food: Server/waitress Dylan was incredibly sweet! Eggplant parm was mediocre at best. Very thin, top layer was crusty & dried out. The Caesar salad was overrun with dressing. Mozzarella triangles were good w/sauce. Brownie dessert was a hit!

Initially service was great! Drinks and appetizer were brought out quickly. The calamari was good. Our entrees were brought out soon after and waiter checked to make sure food was correct. Unfortunately that was the last time we saw our waiter. He never returned. Our entree was completely bland and chicken was very dry. We barely touched the food. The kids like their Alfredo and spaghetti. We got our own to go boxes and continued to wait for a waiter that never came. Another waiter from another section noticed that we were looking and asked if we were ok. She quickly returned with our bill but provided no explanation or apologies for the abandonment. We will not be back.
