Was disappointed in food. The pizza not great, not hot. Salad was as just ok. Caesar. The cracker crouton was tasteless. The calamari was fair. Good wine, Albariño.

Pasta was pretty good but I would skip the brussels sprouts next time. Pizza was OK but nothing special. Service was a bit slow but nice and professional. A bit too touristy for us, as locals, and probably would not go back.

I like this restaurant but they were having a rough night.
We were seated, provided menus and decided what we were eating. As we went to order, each item we planned to order, they were out of. We understand times are tough. So we ordered an app while we looked at the menu some more. It came out. We requested sharing plates, twice. Each time the food runner said ok but they never came out. Not easy to eat brussell sprouts without them. We then ordered again. 10 minutes later the waiter (Who was very nice and doing his best) came out to let us know one of those items also wasn't available now. So ordered a third time. In time it took to make that, it seems one of the other dishes sat under a heat lamp for awhile because the fish was now VERY over cooked. Waiter offered several times to change it which was nice but at this point we were just hungry and wanted to go. I'll be back. Have eaten here before and had good experiences and food is usually good but last night, they were clearly just challenged.

Came for NYE. Started out with a little mishap about our reservation time/kitchen closing and felt rushed, but the MOD and server had excellent service recovery right away and we had the absolute best time. The food and service was perfect, their outdoor dining patio is decorated nicely and warm with heaters. Thank you

Food was ok. The duck pasta had too much fennel, and the sides with the pork chop were bland. The octopus and pizza was delicious. The pizza should not be the best thing on the menu at a restaurant like this.

The food was just OK the pizzas were cold and barely sliced. And they got to our table. I was really a disappointing dinner. We are seated by the door and that was okay except our server was very scattered we had difficulties getting even our water.

Service was prompt. We had a special occasion and each member of team shared their gratulations. I liked that. They provided comp Champaign which was a huge surprise and beautiful and a desert that was tasty another huge surprise. Restaurant was amazing and worth the time and money. Will come again and share with friends as a destination. The only disappointment was they took off the menu an appetizer of muscles and clams that was a favorite of mine. It would be nice if they had it as a request to make it. Now that would have been perfect!!

L’accueil par la jeune fille a été ultra médiocre… elle nous attribués une table pourrie, coincée entre un courant d’air glacial et une entrée de service. Heureusement notre serveur Dane a été beaucoup plus professionnel que cette jeune fille. Il nous a déplacé.

Les pizzas commandées étaient excellentes

I was hoping that the servers were a bit more into explaining the dishes rather than just saying that everything is “good”. The appetizers were on point, very flavorful and I feel was a good reflection on the restaurant. The pasta portions were excessive and swimming in sauce, leaving the dish a bit bland and lacking in uniqueness, thus blending into the sea of competition, especially in little Italy. I expected to know more about the restaurant, and what the chef was known for, and the idea and inspiration behind the menu. So much potential, leaving my expectations unfulfilled.

Service was poor. The waitress was visibly stressed and rude. Food was regular. The pappardelle with duck ragu is actually chicken ragu. My ravioli was bland and not tasty.

Very very busy. Server misunderstood our order but was very apologetic. Our food only came out a few dishes at a time. We mentioned it to the server…again! Apologetic and full of excuses. It wasn’t worth complaining because they were busy and besides we had great seats for the Christmas tree lighting.

Slow service, but it was busy and Thanksgiving so to be expected.
Pleasant staff but attention to detail lacking-wine list missing in menu, menus rather tatty.
House red wine was good value and pleasant but pizza rather bland and lacking mozzarella. Duck pasta dish was unusual but probably wouldn’t order again. Okay overall but wouldn’t return.

Food was bland except for the pumpkin soup. How hard is it to put a little spice in the food you prepare? Just salt and pepper maybe? And you say mashed potatoes and gravy but forget the gravy? Really?

Went for brunch and even with reservation, wait even after sitting down for time to get food was long; then time to get check was long- I asked 2 different people for our check in addition to the hostess. Gave my card and took 30 min to get it back. While the food was okay, not sure if it’s worth the wait. I’m sure dinner is better
