Service was very slow. We were told there was no resverations for 5-7..so had to settle for a 7:45pm. When we arrived there were multiple open tables...not busy at all. The bar was busy. The waiter took our drink order, then 20 mins later brought our salad...without our drinks. No butter was provided for the bread as well. Our food cans 25 mins later, which looked like it had been sitting under a heat lamp for 20 of the minutes. The chicken and macaronis were extremely hot...the macaronis Alfredo sauce was almost burnt from sitting under the heat lamp...and the chicken texture was odd. We had come here before and loved it...it was 4:30 when we dined before...I guess you have to get a table at the right time to have the best service here. We still left a 25% tip for our waiter because we both know how hard waiters and waitresses work for their tips...but this guy def. did not deserve it.

When I made my reservation I wrote in the open table notes that I wanted outdoor seating. My boyfriend and I were sat at an indoor table. For an appetizer we ordered prosciutto stuffed burrata mozzarella. The sauce was cold and there was one prosciutto slice is one of the balls and none in the other. He ordered a steak rare, which came out over cooked with cold mashed potatoes. I ordered a crab and shrimp pasta and opted for the gluten free pasta. It was nearly $40 and had only 3 shrimp. The woman sitting next to me had ordered the same pasta without modification and it was twice the size. I understand charging extra for the gluten free pasta but the serving size shouldn’t be so drastically smaller. The best part of the meal were the complimentary hot peppers and our cocktails. I spent $120 , before tip, on a meal that was mediocre at best. Would never recommend or return to this establishment.

Food was good - we all had a salad with stuffed mushrooms and the octopus appetizers. Everything was fresh and good. Service was also excellent. Atmosphere was great. Loved what they did in the bar area - opening it up. We didn’t sit there but it was a great area.

Everything was delicious. We had calamari, fried mozzarella and mussels in red sauce for appetizers. The mussels were perfectly cooked - soft and fresh. The calamari was the perfect combination of crispy and chewy, and perfectly seasoned. The mozzarella with prosciutto was crisp in the outside and gooey on the inside. All of the apps were perfect. For my main course I had the scallops and tortellini in lobster butter sauce. It was delicious, and the portions were huge. I took half of it home and it was enough for a filling lunch the next day. My friends had the eggplant rollatini (huge portion) and a chicken Caesar salad with a side of mashed potatoes. And finally, for dessert, we shared the tiramisu. It was the best tiramisu I ever had.

The food was very nice. The surroundings were quite comfortable and pleasant. However, the salads that were included with our meals were never served. Due to our table conversation, we did not realize that the salads were not served until I reviewed our bill and discovered there was an incorrect up charge for the (missing) salads. The server meekly said she was sorry and made no effort to correct the situation.
