Market salad was tasty. Nice they offer a half portion.
Shrimp and Brie starter was the highlight.
Lobster gnocchi was great.
Bolognese was decent, meat was over cooked. Probably better options on the menu.
Tiramisu was a let down. :(
Our server Adam was attentive and very nice, great service!
Cool atmosphere.

Fantastic experience. Had a reservation and had no issue. We had an early reservation so it was pretty quiet and nice inside. The staff was super friendly and the food was delicious! Will definitely be returning to try out other items on their menu.

Great food & service. If possible recommend sitting outside- it was really loud inside and could barley hear the person next to me.

We didn’t love this place. Thought it was going to be a nicer Italian restaurant but it was just ok. Booths in the dining room seemed like the only ok place to sit for a little ambiance or privacy but we didn’t get one of those. Happy hour had ok options - we got the arancini which was pretty good. Sat at the bar then got moved to one of the bad tables. Service was actually pretty good even though they forgot my husband’s salad and didn’t even notice it until we told the server after we were brought our main courses. We got the Chile Shrimp pasta and the Cacio e Pepe pasta with sausage. Both were pretty good but nothing too special. Overall we weren’t that impressed and probably won’t be back, but if you live nearby it’s probably a decent option for a week night dinner or take out.

Was here on Saturday night in standard seating at 12am. Very first time here and don’t see us returning. Got seated and once we order drinks the waiter just never returned. We had to ask where our drinks where. We were SUPPER hungry and that was irritating that we had to wait that long on a night we were starving. My husband asked the waiter what he recommends and he had a supper rude body language and said just everything so we asked okayyy so what do you like the most ? And his response was “ you literally just asked me the same question!!! “”. he was zero help & just plain rude.
We order our food and waited a very long time for food about 45 min to a hour. My food sucked and both plates were cold. Our tiramisu tasted like it had zero sugar and it’s supposed to be dessert. They need new cooks and a better waiter.

Food was terrible. $30 for a single overcooked veal cutlet and disgusting risotto that had no flavor. Burger was like a hockey puck. Wait staff was friendly but doesn’t make up for the terrible and overpriced food. This restaurant is a tourist trap.

Standard and typical northern italian fare. Ranges from pizza to lobster gnocci. Tiramisu was a little soggy. I could see this easy veering into a good experience or a disappointing one. We were in the middle, would not plan on going back nor would w object if a group wanted to dine here.

By far one of the best experiences I’ve had at a restaurant in a while! Took my girlfriend there for our anniversary and it was absolutely amazing. I’m not one to review a restaurant but from having the door opened for us, to having our server ( i believe her name was may? ) answer every question we had. We had a salad, pizza, pasta and also a few deserts (don’t judge lol) and the timing of each dish was perfect, we had a everything in under and it felt as if we there forever! For our first time it was very pleasant, we will be returning very very soon (:

I found the place on this website. We went there because it was my daughter's birthday. The food was not what I expected... it was below my expectations. The place wasn't as neat and clean either. The table was next to some cardboard boxes and there were some ants in them. It looks more like a cheap bar and a pizzeria.

Good grub*, especially octopus, fennel sausage pasta, salmon with gnocchi. Wasn't as crowded on a Saturday night as expected so we got a booth instead of the reserved high-top. Energetic atmosphere, great service by the whole staff especially our server.

(* 4 stars but only compared to a few ultra-top-of-the-line Scottsdale restaurants.)

Yes, We had a magnificent dinner. they were king to move us to a booth in the bar area away from two large 8 party tables. were older and hearing is hard. Plus it ws warmer.
Our Server, Bob, I think was outstanding. He was so accommodating for my food allergies, and the meal was amazing. Thank YOU for a wonderful dining experience.

OMG SOOOOOO GOOD! We had the arancini which we’re amazing especially the marinara which was so smooth and flavorful. I then had the Calabria pizza and my boyfriend had lobster gnocchi. It was my boyfriend’s first time eating lobster and gnocchi and he fell in love with it! The Calabria pizza was also one of the best pizzas I’ve had and I’ve been to New York! It had chili peppers and honey with prosciutto and arugula, it was the best combination of sweet and spicy I was obsessed. We finished the night off with the brown butter baby cake and it was delectable. We sat at the bar and are bartender was Josh, he gave us the best customer service and the best drinks!

We made reservations for dinner. We sat down at our table and the hostess came back over and told us we would need to be done in an hour bc they have a big party coming in. It was rude. The restaurant had so many tables open. Why would they put us there. We asked to be moved and she moved us with an attitude. We ordered shrimp pasta and pizza. The pizza was amazing but the pasta was terrible. We took the rest of our pizza to go and when we opened the box to eat the rest, the waitress put our old pizza crust in the box as well… why? It was a terrible experience. I will not go back again.
