Cinque Terre is a beautiful area of the Italian Riviera which is comprised of five villages. The towns are connected by medieval style walkable paths. These villages are a favored destination for travelers to Italy where seafood is prevalent. Pesto, a condiment made of fresh basil, is the flagship of tradition in the region. At Cinque Terre, we make our pesto every day from the freshest and top quality ingredients. We always have on the menu, Muscoli (mussels), Polpo (octopus), Gamberi (shrimp) and a variety of seasonal seafood, artisan pizzas along with house-made pastas.

The food here is amazing. I am vegetarian and was told that any pasta item on the menu could be made vegetarian, which is great!! The wine was very good as well. Vivienne was our server and was super friendly and helpful. The place was a little loud but we didn’t mind.

My family and I had a lovely dinner with Victoria as our server. Food was delicious and reminded us of Cinque Terre! The Pesto, pastas, Zuppa de Pesce, and Octopus were all very authentic! Barrata and prosciutto were also very fresh. Affagato and the profiteroles were great too. The only thing we didn’t care for was the cannoli which was bland but everything else was outstanding!
Our server was friendly, attentive and helpful. We will definitely return on our next visit.

Dinner was awesome and Colin, even new, took great care of us.

One of the most pleasant surprises is that the ventilation was awesome and didn't come out smelling like the kitchen

Decided to try a new restaurant instead of going to any of my downtown staples (Capital Grille!).
Sadly, we were disappointed. We had to wait about 10-15 minutes for our table even with a reservation (not a big deal).
Drinks too about 20 minutes. Food took a while and was okay. Looked good but we only liked 1/4 meals that were ordered for the table. Service was okay, kind staff but service doesn’t match the price.

Excellent service & cuisine! We enjoyed our visit so much. Our server, Rachel, was attentive and generous. She suggested a couple wines and gave generous tastes to help us decide. The food is delicious! They offer a good variety of unique dishes. Gluten-free pasta was outstanding! This place is a must-try!

First time at 54, a Negroni and a Diet Coke take 20 min and the poor waiter comes back with a “There are two tickets ahead of you.” I get my pre-dinner drink once appetizers are in and done. Hubby got someone else’s entree so he got one cold and one warm pasta. Looks like staff is missing and Covid is hurting operations. 3 out of 5 is generous but these days I guess getting food is already a plus!

First time here and wouldn't hesitate to come back. It was a rainy Sunday night and I got the sense they weren't on their A game but excellent food and a most charming Hartley as our server certainly made up for it. Wine list--both by bottle and glass--was a little limited but you can surely find something. Cocktails were good, although slow to come off the bar. Food was delicious and plentiful. You certainly won't leave hungry! Lots of choices in this neighborhood but I'd certainly add this to my list to return.

1h of wait before receiving our appetizers but really good..Unfortunately, my main course is really too grill (octopuss.. ) nothing negative about the server who was very kind and courteous.

Should add to the wine list, some Washington state reds.

Worst service ever. Requested food never delivered, couldn’t even get the check to pay. We understand that a lot of restaurants are short handed but I seemed like our table was not in a section covered by any server. Manager kindly comped several items but was disappointed in the extremely poor service. Even had to ask several times to please run credit card.

We had a little bit of a wait before being served but the bartender/server who took care of us was very apologetic and nice. He more than made up for our wait. Food was good, the wine pairing he suggested was perfect and we left full. But we didn’t expect to spend 2 hours at dinner. Our server did comp our wine and desserts. I could tell they were very understaffed though. We don’t typically need a lot of attention at dinner so the times he did stop by, he was very pleasant and came back with something.

Food was very good. Cocktails were well made. Service was also very good. Quick, capable and friendly. Wine list was decent, especially with regard to Italian wines, but a bit overpriced. Place has a nice design and was clean and attractive. Families would do fine there but I would not say it’s geared toward that. Covid protections were obvious but not intrusive. Would definitely go back.
