Food was great, as usual. Service was very slow. It took quite a lot of time to even be acknowledged. Service was pretty slow

Was on a weekday, so it was not extremely busy and was fairly quiet.
The service and food were excellent.

Sat outside; they were extremely accommodating with seating for my guest, with significant COVID concerns.

My guest’s pasta dish was excellent and innovative; my veal dish was surprisingly just fair - great presentation but fairly tasteless.

The chocolate cake we shared for dessert was also fair.

I would definitely come back and try the restaurant again; it and the parking lot were full, and there seemed to be a lot of returning guests - assume they just had an off night or I didn’t make the best choices in ordering.

My husband and I went for the Tuesday Surn and Turf. I had the filet and my husband had the NY Strip - both were perfectly cooked and great quality. The calamari, salad and pasta were also great. Random, but I really liked the background music - chill acoustic guitar, not annoying like so many other restaurants' music.
We will be back, thanks for a very nice dinner.

Delicious cocktails and food! I had the whole bronzino, fileted tableside with a lemon, white wine, caper sauce and it was the best I've ever had.
Also, the Tiramisu decadent, boozy which we loved!
I highly recommend this Restaurant if you're looking for delicious food experience and our server Egle was wonderful!

The food was excellent! The service, not so much. Seconds after sitting (didn’t even have my jacket off yet) was asked if I wanted a drink. I said I needed a minute, and the annoyance of the waitress filled the air. No water for the table. Order our drinks. Mine came fairly quick, and she clearly forgot about the other one. Had to ask for water. After about what felt like a life time, I had to flag someone down to take our dinner order. (Someone else) they then proceeded to speak in their proper language (not step aside from the table), then they took our order. It was such an awkward feeling, let alone very inappropriate. No apology. Took the order; food arrived without the salad. At that point it wasn’t in worth the effort to say something, just wanted the check and to leave. I understand things are difficult right now, but this service was completely unacceptable. The food, very good. So if you can look beyond the service, you’ll enjoy yourself. Times are stressful right now, for EVERYONE. A nice night out comes seldomly, and I did not enjoy this experience.

We ate outside for dinner on a warm evening in November during the pandemic. There were some heat lamps, but we were not under one. My husband enjoyed the spinach ravioli in blush sauce. I enjoyed the seafood pasta and vegetables. All served piping hot. It was our first time. We will go back.

We took my mom and aunt here for my aunts birthday dinner. We were very impressed with the restaurant itself, the wait staff and especially the food. Everyone loved what they got. The wait staff was very attentive. I asked for a dessert for my aunt since it was her birthday, just expecting them to bring it out. But several came over and had a candle in her cake and sang to her, which was very unexpected but made her feel so special! We will definitely come back.

I believe the actual service was slow only because they might have been short-staffed and there were many diners eating outside because of COVID. The food however was absolutely excellent as usual.
