                    Saturday night was not the right time to go. The place was packed, it is deafening inside The pizza was not cooked on the bottom. The flavors were bold which we liked. I had the Char and Lemon pizza, it was different and tangy. The waitress was awesome. The charcuterie board was phenomenal. The fig cocktail was fantastic.

                    Waitress was just fantastic. The evening was definitely bustling for the restaurant. The waitress was very knowledgeable about the food served at the restaurant and had great recommendations from cocktails to dessert and good advice for those in our party who had gluten allergies. Good energy. Nice nice get out. Definitely advise making reservations for fri & Saturday nights.

                    Me and my husband celebrated our 20th first date. We met off of AOL 20 yrs ago. Char & Lemon was fantastic. If you like a cabernet wine try Storybrook, it has great chocolate undertones. We each had pizza I had a red Spice of Life. So yummy. A bit of a sweet red sauce, fantastic sausage, and a perfect blend of jalapeños. My husband had white sauce shrimp and pesto. To finish: try their canollis with a cappuccino and amaretto!! We are in heaven! Thank you Rob!

                    We went on NYE and had a great time. We met the owner who was so welcoming and generous. We shared the meatballs, wings, harvest salad and eggplant poutine -- all very good! I had the Char & Lemon pizza and added hot honey to it. It was so delicious and unique - a little sweet, a little spicy. I can't wait to go back!

                    New Years even menu was spectacular, wish they would add those items to regular menu. Chicken Marsala was as good as any I have had , my daughter had the prime rib, perfectly cooked, super tasty. Felt bad that they had so many cancellations due to Covid. Can’t wait to go back, one of our favorite places to dine

                    Pizza seemed real greasy although the crust had a good taste. Kind of loud and bright in there. Our waitress was adorable and very good.

                    Thanks for the feedback! We are making improvements to the acoustics in the room to absorb sound from the music. Would love to have you back again to try our pasta dishes!

                    We had a white pie (mushroom) and a red pie (meatball). Both were very good but a bit pricey. A better beer selection and 16 oz. pours would be nice. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. We will definitely be back!

                    Service wasn’t good at all. It was a big deal that we had a reservation for 2 they told us they weren’t sure what they could do walked around a empty dining room trying to figure out where to put two people with a reservation… was offered to bar but we didn’t make a reservation for the bar we made it for a table.. it was like it was a big inconvenience for two people… they did end up seating us at a table after they mad wit a big production… if a reservation for is such a big inconvenience take that option off of open table

                    If you're looking for Italian cuisine with a new twist, then this place is for you! The pizzas, however, are pretty traditional wood fired Napolitano style which are outstanding.

                    I have been here twice and had two different salmon dishes. Both were excellent! We sat outside on the spacious porch and were very comfortable sitting underneath a heater. Both visits were very relaxing and enjoyable.
