However, the service was less than spectacular. We weren’t checked on once after our dinner was brought out to see if we wanted or needed more water (which we did) and it wasn’t exceptionally busy. I’ll definitely give it another chance though since the food was excellent.

Also, prices charges on bill do not match the menu prices. In one case, the bill charge was $3 more than the menu price. Perhaps they should revise their menus.

Parking was not clear at first (it’s behind the building to its right) but plenty of street parking. It was a quiet evening, waitress was very attentive and helpful. Courses were spaced out appropriately and we did not feel rushed at all. Loved my lobster ravioli & family had plenty of leftovers 😬 Would definitely return.

They accepted a reservation for our group so that made it easier too. Our group was seated immediately and the staff was extremely attentive to us the whole time. We never had to ask for anything because they were constantly checking on us throughout the meal. Everything was delicious from the tripe, hot appetizer, cold appetizer and clams oreganata to the dinners of chicken parmigiana, seafood risotto, osso bucca, lobster tails & seafood pasta. We also enjoyed many desserts. I would highly recommend this gem we found!

Used to be good I don’t know what happened. They need better chefs. Will not be returning

The handwritten poster board on the wall in the dining room didn't help! The waitress was incredibly rude which made our dining experience extremely unpleasant. She barely spoke to us and it certainly didn't go unnoticed that our table was the only table she chose NOT to pour the water for. She literally dropped the plastic water pitcher on our table, spilling a large puddle of it and simply walked away. When we asked for a to-go container she actually looked at us like we were speaking in an alien language!! The only time she actually had a small conversation with us is when she brought us our bill! Too late!!!

Food was very good, just not exceptional. Portion sized were perfect and great value for the $. I was disappointed in the quality of service. Very "robot like" service with no personality. Felt like we were just a number in the establishment. Took a long time to get our check. Overall I' still rate them very good, but they should work on the service aspect.

We went there for my husbands birthday and don’t plan on returning! Besides the mediocre food and service, there was someone using a drill which we were subjected to during our dining. For a place with $18 entrees, the tiny piece of Chilean sea bass on the fish special was seriously overpriced at $31. Daily specials should be marked with pricing like all other entrees.

Came for the carpaccio but it was not on the holiday menu. Later found out it was one of the specials that night. Would have liked to hear the specials when we ordered but service and food was still good.
