The meatballs with seasoned ricotta were exceptional. We also loved the pappardelle alla bognese. The noodles were perfectly cooked and the sauce was delicious.

First timers and we will definitely be back! We went, just the two of us, for a birthday lunch and the service and food was excellent. Our server offered us a few wine samples when we couldn't decide what to order. Unique, fresh, perfectly cooked options you can't get just everywhere. We are already planning our next visit to sample the dishes we didn't get today!

I cannot say enough about the wonderful service we encountered on Saturday night. Juan led us through the wine menu and helped us pick a great choice for our party of 4. He then steered us toward the best dinner options. After being away from indoor dining the better part of a year, it was wonderful to be able to enjoy a night out with friends. We started with fried calamari and the meat and cheese appetizer. Both were exceptional and the 4 of us enjoyed every morsel. The 2 best dinners were the Osso Buco and the bucatini pasta with lobster. Just wow. I cannot wait to return to this restaurant!

Well this place is always a favorite and usually very quiet but this visit was different. They sat us in Zorba adjacent to Che Figata which was fine but that filled up to capacity.
Our food took over an hour (two pasta dishes) and our server just said “I’m sorry. I’ll buy you another round”. I would not have bought another drink. I was driving.
Food was delicious but the delay should’ve been handled differently.

Had a date night this Saturday. First time customer. Res for around 6pm, it was quiet at that time, by 8-9pm the place was at it's 25-50% limit due to restrictions. Temp check at the front, masks optional at table. Our waiter was a very nice gentleman. We were planning on staying awhile, so he was distant but attentive. Had a german sweet wine that was marked up, but not badly. I've gotten used to drinking at home for retail. Skipped first course and into main. She had the Lasagna which was, pretty good, not great. I had the Short Rib ravioli, which was outstanding! I was almost licking the plate. Very good. Small portion sizes, which is good, helps the waistline, but the prices reflected a struggling pandemic business, so, understandable, plus the quality and craftsmanship which was there. Ambiance was nice. Booths that faced the open air kitchen. Wood burning stove for pizza, so there is a smell of autumn fire that I enjoy. Dessert was pretty good. Tiramisu was good, Gelato was better. The waiter even gave us some fresh sliced prosciutto which literally melted in our mouth. Overall, very impressed. Great atmosphere for a date night, food was crafted well, wait staff was professional and attentive. 7/10.

I was not impressed with the menu selection or the portions of food served. It seemed pricey for what we got. It would have been nice to have bread served with Italian food, but there was none. It was what you would expect from a convenient restaurant in a hotel.

We ate on patio. Cool outside so heater was on. Half price pasta on Sunday is a good value and pasta was great.
Waitress was attentive but let us enjoy dinner. She was friendly and professional. Would recommend.
