The food was excellent. My dirty martini was perfect, a full glass. I have had a several entrees: sea bass, zuppa di mare (seafood pasta ), pork chops calabrese, 8 finger pasta-outstanding; always delicious. We also had a 50 birthday party here last year and they did an excellent job. First time posting a review.

Main course took a long time to be served and when it arrived it was cold.

Went here for a colleague gathering and overall had a pleasant experience. The food was good, albeit pricey, though the vodka sauce was delicious. Our server seemed overwhelmed by our party of 12, and the food took a while to make it to the table. Coffee wasn't offered with dessert, which I found odd. Attention to beverages, period, was lacking. The atmosphere was lovely, and the company made up for any shortcomings. We enjoyed our time, regardless.

Everything was good except the table location. It was right next to kitchen with not much to block the “view “.

We went for our first time on Valentine’s day so it was crowded but we made reservations ahead of time which was a plus! I ordered the classic spaghetti & meatballs and my boyfriend got the gnocchi with crushed sausage that looked so good! We got the bruschetta for an appetizer and it was so tasty! Our waitress was phenomenal even with it being crowded she checked on us so often and she was doing great on the refilling the bread bowl ;)

I’ll definitely be coming back!

I was disappointed in my entrée of Veal Parmigiana as the cheese was burnt and tasted burnt. It removed the slightly sweet taste of the Veal that I enjoy so much. I will go back as I have heard from others that my meal was an anomaly. My wife's Cavatelli was perfectly prepared and delicious as were the appetizers and all the other courses.

Went for Valentines Day, and while it was busy, they did a good job of spacing the tables as to not make it fee over crowded.

Food and service were very good. Waiter was very attentive despite it being busy.

The only concern came when the check arrived. While martinis were clearly marked $12 on the menu, both were charged at $14 on the check. In addition, one of the meals was overcharged. They quickly corrected it when we pointed it out, and it made us wonder about their honesty. (They said the computer and menu weren’t aligned which means other people were probably being overcharged, too!)

We had a awesome server - Kelly. She was amazing! Food was good , atmosphere nice and excellent wine list.

After the dinner, When i had the person wrap up my left over salmon I was not happy when he took my dish and proceeded to place all the other plates on top of it. I thought he was going to throw it away but he placed it in a to go container after he put all the other dishes on top of it! Not a very safe way to handle left over food!

Outstanding dinner with outstanding food! Service was incredible and love the fact that I felt ‘at home’ with the owner coming to the table for introductions! Very recommended!
