Very good service. I had the crab cakes. They weren’t anything special but everyone else enjoyed their entrees. Had the chocolate lava cake was excellent!

I had the Cioppino witch is supposed to be their specialty but there was so much broth it should just be considered a soup. Server was ok everything was a little over priced.

Food was very good, but it was so noisy that you needed to know sign language to communicate. When we were seated, there were dirty plates on the table. When we asked for clean plates, employee rolled his eyes and slapped down clean plates without sayi ng anything. Bad first impression. Our actual server was very good. Expensive.

The food came out too fast. We ordered, two minutes later our calamari was on the table. Five minutes later we were halfway through the appetizer and or main dishes were on the table and they pushed away our calamari. The chicken parmigiana could not have cooked that fast. The plate was full of water and washed away the sauce. The the price of this restaurant to have all the food come off a steam table in the kitchen is pathetic.

Really disappointed. Essentially good pizza but otherwise just touristy food. I don’t think I’ve ever had salmon that was filleted open and crispy. There are better places on the warf.
The staff was super nice and the service was great.

better most of the restaurants in touristic areas. P39 restaurants what you are charged and what you get is not fair. In that area this is definitely preferable.

Our server Ger was excellent. I haven’t been here in years but the food wasn’t great & we were a little disappointed. The Cioppino was prepared a little different too much of a thick creamy, very rich tomato sauce. The Mahi Mahi was dry & served with not enough sauce. On the other hand, the wine & Desert was excellent. Overall the ambiance is Fabulous!

Very over priced whole crab. Crab tastes way better at Capurro’s. Our server was nice but brought the wrong food for one of our guests. The bus boys were rude. Over priced for the small portions served, small amount of seafood in the linguine and scampi. Only thing good and large portion was the chicken Parmesan. Other wise will not go back.
