My family went for my sister’s birthday. We remember the food being great a few years ago but it was completely disappointing this time. Everything we ordered was bad. The calamari had no salt and was extremely chewy. The caprese salad was served in a big dirty dish with chopped up steak tomatoes with a few lumps of mozzarella. The italian wedding soup was salty and just horrible tasting and our waiter served it lukewarm and spilling onto a plate. The lasagna was all sauce and no pasta. I ordered meatballs and they were extremely tough and tasted stale. Unfortunately, we will never go there again and can’t honestly recommend it to anyone.

The food was really good! Our waiter wasn’t around much and made us late for an event we were trying to get to. Luckily the bartender helped us pay the check quickly. I don’t think all service is bad, we just good a waiter who wasn’t around.

We held a birthday party for 20 people. They were wonderful. Friendly, accommodating, efficient. Everyone ordered different entrees and they were all delicious. They brought plenty of bread and let us do multiple checks. Highly recommend and will be going back again and again.

Had a graduation celebration. Good food. Good service. Met expectations. No "wow", but, no disappointment, either.

We were seated immediately at 6:20. The waitress was very friendly and we had drinks with in a reasonable time. We had two small children with us who were very hungry . Unfortunately it took until after 7:40 to receive our meals . We did have salad but kids didn't eat. Children were so tired they feel asleep before eating much. The waitress seemed very frazzled and really was trying to please. food was Ok. I had veal scaloppine which was dry and the pasta didn't have much sauce. I would say that it was just OK.

My friends and I come here several times a year and hold our annual Girls Xmas dinner at this spot (the last 7 years)... it's an old favorite. But this was our last time coming. The service was horrible, unapologetically so. The server left us in the middle of taking our orders to attend to "an emergency." The only emergency we saw was her getting a glass of wine for another table. This happened a couple times were we were left in the middle of giving drink orders or meal orders without explanation. We were going to order desert but that wasn't an option, as we were handed our check and said goodbye to hastily. We decided we would not come back here again and find a new place to dine for our special nights out.

Great little spot with excellent service. We went on Thursday when all martinis are $5. Such a deal! You can create your own pasta dish picking from sauces and protein choices.

Very good experience from our arrival, reception and dining. They called to confirm our reservation, our table was ready, waiter was attentive and not pushy and the restaurant team worked in a efficient way.
