    We had a lovely brunch. They serve bottomless Mimosas and Bloody Marys. The omelet of the day was well seasoned and super hot, so it was delivered immediately. The staff is attentive and work together well as a team.

    No air conditioner on a 100 degree day, no ceiling fans to at least circulate hot air, and didn't even bring in floor fans to help. Waitress Maria was only positive but still my mom's 84th birthday dinner ruined for table of 5. My spinach ravioli had zero taste because of overuse of garlic (and I love garlic). Cannot recommend at all.

    Fava Ristorante ItalianoResponded 7 days agoKaren, your feedback is important to us, and what you've outlined here is absolutely valid. We are so disappointed to hear that your special occasion at Fava did not meet your expectations. We would like the opportunity to make this right, and to wow you upon your next visit. Delivering excellent guest experiences is our top priority, and we apologize that we missed the mark with yours. We do hope you'll visit us again.

    On our way home to NYC we decided to stop at Fava due to the high rating. It was Monday 7/18/22 very hot 90° day and we reserved outdoor seating since we were traveling with our small Yorkie. The manager displayed such compassion for the three of us and invited us to dine inside. My pet was enclosed in his stroller and he was very quiet. The manager seated us at the end of the table by the exit. The waitress was very kind and the ambient was excellent. I’m a picky eater but everything was cooked to perfection. The pianist played classical music and I felt rich for the evening. I had a wonderful experience and plan on visiting again. I highly recommend this restaurant and I promise you won’t be disappointed!!

    We enjoyed our meal at Fava - quality ingredients, attentive and informative server and nice background live piano music which was a plus. We had the Artichokes and Prosciutto and Melon appetizers, the Chicken Parmigiana and the Veal Scaloppini for our entrées. My only preference would be for the lighting at dinner to be a little lower than it was -- other than that -- wonderful meal and experience.

    Honestly the wait took away from the entire experience. We were always waiting on refills and it took forever to get our food. The restaurant wasn't too busy so I am not sure why it took so long for our food. We had a reservation for 6:30 and ended up leaving after they closed for the night.

    Food was excellent. They have a piano player that played all night. We were there on a Saturday. Pianos are nice but they had a speaker hooked up to it which was ridiculous. The restaurant is a very small room and between the volume of people trying to talk and the music it was too much. Couldn’t hear our server tell us about the Specials. Volume level was like a cafeteria. Couldn’t hear yourself speak. I’d love to go again but am going to call to see if there are nights the piano is not playing.

    Fava Ristorante ItalianoResponded on July 5, 2022Thank you for writing this review, Andrea! We appreciate your feedback and are so glad you enjoyed your meal at Fava. The pianist plays Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

    Food and service were excellent. I asked for an adjustment to be made to my entree and was accommodated with no hesitation. My only suggestion would be to hang fabrics or something to deaden the noise in the dining room. It is very loud. Did not take away from our enjoyment, but you did have to speak up to be heard. The live piano music was a big plus. Happy we could hear it. I would definitely eat here again.
