We asked for a terrace table, but when we arrived we ask the hostess to change us to an indoor table, and she did the change for us, se was very kind.
The food was amazing. We had a margarita pizza, a three different pastas, the three of them were great!! We also had a Prosecco bottle.
Everything was pretty good but the noise in the room was really high… not the music but the other tables were almost screaming trying to talk.

I wasn’t to pleased with the young lady who greeted us when we arrived. It was storming outside and we arrived 15 minutes late and she was not helpful at all. Luckily another young women helped us and was very polite.
Overall the food was amazing the location is gorgeous. The food portions can be a tad larger and they should offer more side options for lunch.

Was guaranteed outside reservations when we made the reservation. Even called to confirm outside, when we arrived from Palm Beach, we were told outside wasn’t available. Didn’t ruin our date but was extremely disappointed.

While the overall experience was favorable, I was disappointed when our entrees were served minutes after our appetizers. I sent them back to the kitchen and all was well.

My poor rating has to do with the fact this restaurant does not know how to handle a crisis. Clearly there was an issue in the kitchen and staff coordination. Yet, both our server and managed the situation poorly. We waited an hour for a margarita pizza. Completely unacceptable. While they kept us waiting they left us in the dark. No explanation or update whatsoever. Our server basically disappeared. The manager was even worse. In fact, he tried to be funny when he brought the pizza to our table. Evidently, there was no mood for jokes. I fully understand that unforeseeable events can take place in the kitchen. However, my critique has to do with how the managed the crisis. Off course, they did not charge the pizza and offered an additional 15 percent discount. But it wasn’t communicated well. Had they handled it differently, I would be more inclined to forgive, but I don’t see myself returning in the foreseeable future.

Food was enjoyable however the service was very slow. Our experience seemed similar to previous reviews. If you are looking for a long drawn out experience then this might be the place for you. Also, it was very cold inside. Not a big deal but I did not have a sweater and in a short skirt and tank top I was freezing.

First time here. The staff was overwhelmed, but kind. You can tell it was a busy night. We waited a long time to get greeted. The food was great. I had the chicken parm with a side of noodles and sauce. My boyfriend had salmon with crispy potatoes. I would def go again with lower expectations of timely service.

Made reservations one week before for my wife's birthday which is Easter Sunday. Upon arrival we were seated and after 40 minutes of waiting and not even getting water I got up and spoke to the manager. After a few more minutes she shows up to wait on our table and explained the kitchen was running about one hour behind and the restaurant was understaffed. The restaurant was about 60% full on an Eater Sunday during brunch time which is unacceptable to have such poor service. After 45 minutes of no service we got up and walked away.

This is our fourth time visiting the restaurant. The ambience is generally cool with a nice vibe. The kitchen doesn’t seem very organized with food order coming out at different times and the staff seem overwhelmed. This is each time, so it’s not a matter of being busy on one night. The wait for a salad for example was 35 minutes. Food takes forever to come out. There are other better options in the area where the ambience is equally good but the service is 10x better.

One of the worst experiences I’ve ever had at a restaurant. Made a reservation weeks in advance. Got to the restaurant on time for our reservation and they said it would be about a 30 minute wait regardless of reservations due to their “dinner rush”. What’s the point of a reservation then??? They finally said we could sit down at our table and order drinks but had to wait at least 30 minutes to put a food order in. They sat us outside in the corner where the wind was blaring and there was some machinery feet away that was so loud, my family and I were practically screaming at eachother the whole time. Finally asked the manager to move inside, where the dining room was empty and he wouldn’t allow it. There was also empty tables outside away from the cold and noise during the entire time we were there. Drinks took 25 minutes to come out each time and appetizers came out after our entrees had been brought to the table. Management was awful. Felt bad for our server, as she was trying her best. I would never go back and recommend no one goes there. Especially for being a “higher end” restaurant!!!

Really slow service, 20 min to get initial water and waiter, food hit or miss, carrot ginger juice had no ginger in it, they forgot part of the order. Waiter spilled drinks at nearby table and some of it splashed on us but they didn't ask or clean it up for over 15 min.

The made the reservation on open table. I wrote specific notes for the restaurant
Under the section where it asks for what is the occasion and accommodations . I wrote we wanted to sit outside and it was a husband’s birthday. So, was thinking they bring a little something maybe, with a candle on it . But we waited 1 hour and 35 minutes to be seated. It was freezing outside. No heated lamps. We were asked is it too cold out here, or are you sure you want to sit outside . They also never
Apologized for making us wait so long or for serving us our appetizers at 10:30. And the waitress wasn’t friendly at all. Neither was the hostess . The hostess would actually glance over at us waiting at the bar to be seated to our table and never said, sorry, we apologize for the long wait. Can we offer you bread ? A drink on the house ? I mean no apologies what-so- ever. The food was really good. So, although I was hangry I was happy that our food was very good. Although, I must say I’ve never been to an Italian restaurant who doesn’t serve bread . The didn’t even ask if we wanted bread. She didn’t ask if it was our first time there or give us any recommendations . Service def thumbs down. Food def thumbs up.

Several subpar food items and drinks. Service was overwhelmed and distracted. FOH manager was responsive and removed the worst dish from the bill and provided a comped item but that service, while kind, ultimately didn’t make up for the other items which were a let down or for the overall experience this time.

Nice and very good ambiance. Good service but sometimes not easy to contact our waitress to place order for additional items.
Quality food.
Very good Primi Plati with Cheeses and Salumeria; eggplants; fried mozzarella and fried Calamari.
Very good bread to dip into a quality olive oil.
Rigatoni’s were perfect cooking. Al Dente and with a fantastic Bolognese sauce (meats: beef, pork and veal).
Fantástica pizzas. Tasty and fresh ingredients.
We were a party of six and all of us had a positive compliments.
