We arrived for our reservation on Valentine's Day at 7:00 and were seated quickly. There were several open tables in our area. After waiting a while to be greeted by our server, he informed us that food would be delayed because the kitchen was backed up. He brought our drinks and caprese salad, but didn't bring any plates or dressing. I finally caught his attention and asked for plates and bread. He happened to be carrying vinegar and oil so he left that with us. The salad was good. The bread was warm and tasty. The ambience was nice. However, our dinner didn't arrive until 8:30. We waited well over an hour for our food. The plate the food was on was hot to the touch, but the filling was cold. Not warm, cold. We asked for a to go container and left. There is no valet parking. We found a homeless man sleeping by our car. All in all, not a great experience.

Food and service was good. Could be better. There were a huge family party and the kids were out of control. My Fiancé and I were not able to enjoy our time there. I wish that they would have offered to sit us elsewhere.

Really have always had good experience here, but this was not the case this time. Slow service, losing orders, refills slow. Food ok. Not sure if short staffed or what the case was but probably won’t be going back anytime soon.

Food was great once we got a new server that would actually wait on us. I would still recommend this place especially with family

Nightmare in hell. Please read reviews we dint and paid big for it. This place is absurdly diabolical. The people that work there laugh at u being upset. They encourage the sarcastic and rudeness with all the employees. If only the owner knew how horrible they treat people. He would fire everyone on the spot. Save yourself a nightmare in hell go somewhere else

Mediocre food. Service was poor. Said the bread was coming out the over but it was cold. The entrees were not hot. Brought out linguine not the spaghetti as requested. Had to push the point that we wanted spaghetti and not linguine. Said that they were out of spaghetti. Really. Cold bread. Not spaghetti. Was so hopefull. Not impressed. Not a good value.

Food was delicious, but garlic heavy. Open Christmas day, and we had a great server.

Initially I was very frustrated because I had made a reservation for a large group and when we arrived they had us sitting a 3 separate tables. After voicing my irritation our server improvised and made a big long table for us which was greatly appreciated. He also provided great service through the meal for our large group.

The food is terrible.
But it was very easy to get into with a large group since the restaurant was basically empty...probably because the food isn't good. The sizes are perfect for sharing so you can try a variety of things which is nice. That way you know that everything is bad. Not just the one thing that you ordered.
The calamari breading was very heavy and the calamari definitely was not fresh. They were very rubbery. Almost like eating rubber bands.
The meatballs were terrible...tasted gamey and like they were made with spam or something...definitely not beef or sausage. Almost mushy and corn mealy.
The stuffed shells looked like they had been sitting under the lights all day waiting for someone to order them and were hard.
The other 2 pastas were mediocre at best.
I will never be back. I would definitely recommend one of the many other Italian places downtown.

This is our traditional location to meet certain friends. Service was perfect, food was great (always too much, even when we try to limit). Will be back.

I'm not sure if it was an extremely busy night or what but this was by far the worst service I've received and the food wasn't great.

The service was slow and absent. Our waitress was almost nonexistent, forgot multiple items, and left us soda-less. The manager noticed the bad service but didn't really so anything to fix it. The food was gross and we feel ripped off by the price we paid for everything.

We wrote a much more detailed review on Google (they don't have character limits). Check out the review posted 6/29/17 by Skyler Stark to see all the details.

On Sunday, in Salt Lake City, there are not a lot of dining options. I called to see if they could accommodate just two (2) diners for dinner. YES, the could .... but you have to know to ask for the "lunch menu". AND, if you order off the lunch menu when it is not lunch time, do check your bill to make sure you've been charged appropriately. That said, I highly recommend the eggplant parm. But that is just my opinion.
