Food is great and waiter gets five stars. I wish they could add some more warmth to the Covid bare bones décor but, at least, they're open!

It was my son’s 22nd birthday. The food was great as usual and the service was good. I wish there was mellow piped in Italian music to complete the ambiance.

Our dinner was fantastic as always. Just a shame that this restaurant has to close during this time. It’s OK to go on an airplane and it’s OK to shop at Costco and Walmart, but we have to close the restaurants. Can someone please explain it to me?

Had a great meal on a date with my GF. It was her first time so Im glad she enjoyed it because I love their Risotto and their spaghetti bolognese! My fav. Great wine selection and still a romantic atmosphere despite the semi-outdoor tables.

The menu was shortened. The meal was terrible. The food came out 45 minutes late and by the time we got it. The food was cold. And if that wasn't enough the bill was high. I will never go back to this place. It is really not work it.

We were celebrating my wife, Rose's birthday. The restaurant is very elegant. We were seated near the fireplace, a very romantic place.
Service was wonderful and the food was a delightful experience.
We will return, even though we live on the other coast. ;-)
Thank you,
