WAY too noisy. Had to yell to have a conversation. No atmosphere. Food was good but wouldn’t go back.
Lovely to eat outside for a light lunch of appetizers. Food was prepared well and served hot and service was very prompt even though they were finishing up with a large noisy party. Since we just had a two appetizers it’s difficult to speak for the whole menu, but we will definitely go back.
Excellent, authentic and inventive Italian food, with an emphasis on seafood. Will definitely go back and make it our ‘go-to’ when in this area of Westchester. Reminded me of being in a hip ristorante along the Amalfi Coast. Highly recommended!
Great food. Menu is different and interesting but also lots of go-to items. Servers were friendly.
Delicious food and wine! Was perfect outdoor dining for lunch. Staff was friendly and helpful.
Food was fresh and delicious. Service was excellent. Attentive and charming staff. Will definitely be back soon
Great creative food offerings
Anniversary. The food was bland and not interesting at all.
Our dinner at cafe alaia felt very special. The ambiance is nice and the service is unobtrusive though at times it would have been nice to easily flag a waiter down.
The eggplant soufflé appetizer was one of the most incredible dishes I have ever tasted. It was light and airy but meaty at the same time. We ordered a second one. My husband got the rack of lamb and was in heaven. I ordered the shrimp and white bean appetizer but it was way too heavily seasoned with rosemary.
Overall it was a very special evening.
Amazing service and food was great! Love the new space
Incredible service and food
One of the finest restaurants in southern Westchester. The God's Honest Truth. lol Rev. Anthony D. Sorgie
Always a great meal and a wonderful wine selection of smaller (top notch) Italian producers. A neighborhood treasure. Vincenzo and his staff are wonderful.
The only hiccup was that I was seated in one room and my dining companion was seated in another room. I finally got up to see if they had arrived and found them seated in the bar room.
Everything started out lovely and the busier it got the less service we received. We were not able to get the attention of anyone to order dessert and coffee. We finally got someone and by that point we just got the check and left. I may be back to try and get the full experience.
Food is phenomenal. Everything is fresh and delicious.
Great food great ambience always new specials. It my favorite
Great food and good service!
Always an amazing experience! Live the food, staff, and owner!
Food was great. The place was very loud and very full. Service was a little disjointed due the crowd and lack of wait staff which was understandable given the difficulty in hiring right now. Worth going for the food!!!
Wonderful atmosphere and food. Thoughtful and friendly staff!
Busy night. Slow service. Very loud - poor acoustic insulation, if any. Friendly and conscientious staff. Food was generous and fresh but ordinary.
Very good food and service. Noise level unacceptable, need to do something to deaden the noise level
A wonderful dining experience with top notch food amd service.
Good food, good ambiance. Would definitely go here again.
Mother’s Day dinner was great. Service was excellent considering the day. Food is always great here. Every choice is always delicious. Dining here is a must do.
Way too noisy after 6 pm to hold a conversation...they need some noise-abating material.
Bread-good texture; totally lacking salt or taste
Sauce for red snapper was way too salty
Veggies good; eggplant starter as well
My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary out at a restaurant for the first time in a long time. We were brought to an extremely small two top table- no room for crossed arms or two plates- more than enough for distancing.
I ordered a Jack and ginger cocktail only to find that they had no Jack Daniels and the waiter proceeded to offer other scotches.... Not bourbons...
The service was just “okay” we waited a long time to be cleared and asked for a couple of items which took two people to get. There were a lot of staff “milling” around.
The food was good but for these prices, the service should be better.
Also, why ask if it is a special occasion if the restaurant does nothing with that information?
It was nice to be out celebrating our anniversary.. it would have been nicer with a better experience.
Excellent food and brand new space. Owner comes out to every table and asks how your experience is. Highly recommend.
Wonderful atmosphere, service and food! The staff is so nice! We love it here!
Hard to have a conversation below the shouting level when the room is full
Exceptional quality and unique preparation made this meal an event. Octopus carpaccio was tender, gently flavored and beautifully presented. Eggplant soufflé with burrata could have been a meal on its own. We had salmon and Bronzino for entrees, and each was wonderful. Even the simply roasted and carrots were perfection.
The chef/owner circulated throughout our meal, never imposing his presence, but clearly attentive. The restaurant is warmly rustic, with strict adherence to Covid restrictions.
Love this place so much! The food is amazing and so different and ambience is great!
Food was bland but when seasoned it was good. Vet crowded. Think they overbooked. Prices were high especially dessert was $12,
One of the best dining experiences I’ve had.
Loved it there! Will totally be back!
Great food and great service. The new location came out looking excellent. Looking forward to going back soon!
Very good pasta and homemade breads. Proprietor on site and solicitous
Lovely anniversary dinner. Can't wait to come back!
