    The focaccia bread was recommended and was delicious. The grilled octopus was very tasty as well. We enjoyed our server Zach and he poured our wine nicely to aerate it

    I made a reservation for my holiday dinner for my business. After 90 minutes, the waitress comes by and says, I’d offer you dessert but we have a big table coming in now and then proceeds to give us our check. I was in fact planning to get dessert as I was a holiday dinner for my staff. Aft that we proceeded to another restaurant. I will never come back here. Terrible service.

    Bypass this forgettable Italian place. It's noisy, the food is not particularly good nor well prepared (pasty pasta, greasy appetizers), the service is slow but pleasant. Not sure how this place is still around.

    The food was excellent. Brussels sprout salad and lobster gnocchi were amazing. Sat outside. Very good vibe. Also a bit of a hidden gem. Saturday night at 8pm they had tables.

    We are from Nebraska and were wanting octopus. Found it! So delicious as our appetizer. Then the 2 meals we chose were phenomenal. Service, food, price were great! Wish we lived here so we could frequent EVO.

    Very punctual in our reservation. The meatball Appetizer was amazing and the brown cake dessert was amazing too. Our filets could have been better. Wasn’t a lot of taste with the filets. Great service. Drinks were ok as well. Weren’t very strong, almost seemed watered down. Great experience though.

    Great bartenders and drink offerings. The kale Brussels sprout salad is tasty but know it’s deep fried and topped with balsamic so it’s oily and sweet. The fungi pizza, always one of my favorites, has change since Covid like so many things. Less flavor with the regular mushrooms and plain cheese as opposed to wild mushrooms with sharper cheese combo. It’s still good but not special. The shrimp dish on the happy hour menu was delicious. They have many menu options so we’ll be back and just change our choices. The polpette looked amazing as it went by.

    We had seen great reviews of the menu items, and everything we ordered was delicious. Service was excellent, perhaps even a bit overly attentive, as multiple servers stopped by to take orders or check in (not a complaint - it’s just uncommon). Terrific experience, would recommend.

    We were really looking forward to EvO after seeing it in Check Please! Meatballs were great. But Caesar salad was soggy, pizza lacked cheese and all of our good cène at same time. Salads appetizers and entrees.

    My partner and I celebrated our anniversary at this place. Our waiter was entertaining! We let him choose our drinks and he was spot on! Unfortunately I don’t remember his name! But we had a fun time and the food was absolutely delicious. I highly recommend the meatballs for appetizer and lobster gnocchi for entree. Will be returning again.

    Chose to dine here for our anniversary. Parking area was full when we arrived at 6:45p but was allowed to park in nearby lots as other business offices were closed. They were able to seat us earlier than our 7:15p reservation. The place was a bit dark and music kind of loud. Front desk staff and server (jharny) were excellent. Our server was friendly and knows his food well. He gave excellent recommendations and wait time was decent. We ordered meatballs for appetizer then salmon with orzo and shrimp pasta and added sausage per recommendation which was great. Had a complimentary dessert zepollinis for our special occasion and we highly appreciated that. Overall good food and great experience. Highly recommended and will come back. Thank you EVO!

    The restaurant in general is very cute, our reservation was at 6 and it was not crowded at all. But the service was horrible, it took forever for our waitress to come and after we got our food, we barely saw him. The food was NOT worth the price at all. We got two pasta dishes and two drinks and the dishes tasted store bought. Overall, disappointed
