Fun place for sure. 7:30 res on Saturday kept us waiting for 15-20 minutes which was kind of a downer. Food was good but not much effort in the presentation. We'll be back.

An early New Years dinner made for a fabulous start to the night. Friendly and efficient service, great that menu was a la carte and not forcing us into a set meal. Food was fresh, presented beautifully and tasty. A full restaurant, great service, and excellent food. Thank you!

Being that it was New Years Evg., I guess you must not have big expectations, but for the prices that are charged you should have a very tender veal chop for $45 and tasty lamb chops, also $40. The calamari was very good, but the Caesar was low on dressing and also quite expensive. Getting staff was really hard if you needed something such as dressing or mint sauce for your lamb which they don't have.

EVOO is always amazing. The service is very friendly and attentive and the food is delicious, and reasonably priced. Highly recommend the gnocchi (some of the very best I've had), and the penne alla vodka, which is super delicious. Their mushroom risotto is wonderful too.

Una delicia! Todo lo que pedimos nos encanto.
El servicio y calidez de los meseros hicieron un día muy especial.
Lo recomiendo al 100%
Pedimos el pulpo que estaba buenísimo y un risotto ai funghi increíble y un rigatoni arrabiata exquisito

EVOO is an intimate upscale restaurant with tasteful decor, excellent service and fabulous authentic Italian cuisine.

Wine by the glass was generously poured... as one would do for a guest in your own home. That was a nice touch!

Noise level was acceptable, and having a conversations over dinner was possible without shouting.

I'd definitely return and would recommend it for date night, or anytime you have a hankering for an excellent Italian meal.

Everything was great except we (me and a friend) noticed all the other tables getting complimentary shots after dinner when they received their bill, but we were excluded for some reason. We kept expecting the waiter had forgotten and we were about to get ours but we waited and waited and eventually just left. That was the only disappointing part of the evening. Otherwise it's a great restaurant.

Once again EVOO did not disappoint. The food is fresh and well presented. The service and server was excellent. He seemed to know what we needed before we did. The front of the restaurant is noisy but the middle and back sections allow you and your guests to carry on a conversation. My favourite restaurant in the area

My veal dish was okay. Not as tender as I would have liked. I thought the dishes were quite good size but somewhat overpriced. Mid price wines were delicious.

My colleague & I both enjoyed our meals, having had the veal sandwich & rigatoni respectively. Ambiance of the restaurant was nice and while the tables are moderately close together, noise levels were quite acceptable. The only qualm we had was that there seemed to be only one waiter so service tended to be a bit slow. We had to ask for water twice & then had to flag down the waiter to get our bill. The quality of the food however did make up for this somewhat so if you are ok with a “relaxed” dining experience, this restaurant should fit the bill!

The food wasn't so tasty and I was disappointed with the service. We were a party of 9 and they refused to split the bill, leaving us all trying to calculate who owed what. I found the pasta to be very bland, and was 19 dollars. It needed spice as it had no taste. The ceasar salad was good. The restaurant was also very loud.

I had a fantastic dinner here with my friend. The food was great and the service was excellent. Many thanks to our waiter Jorge. He was friendly, knowledgeable and showed us around the restaurant after dinner. The manager was friendly as well. I would absolutely come back here the next time I'm in town. They really took good care of my friend and me.
