    Rooms (and there were many to choose from) were the best part of this restaurant. Service was extremely slow. Had to go find waitress to bring us menus and waters. When she finally brought out the charcuterie plate it was underwhelming. Soups and salads and entrees were practically brought out at the same time! We had to keep asking for our waters to be refilled. Oh, and we were overcharged. Luckily we caught the error and they fixed the bill. Would not recommend or be back.

    I went here to celebrate my boyfriend birthday. The place is quiet and kind of romantic. Food and wine was good.

    Pizza was very good. One of the wines was undrinkable and the other okay. Service was almost non-existent. Will not return, despite its excellent location.

    This restaurants let's you make a Saturday lunch reservation on opentable- but they are not open on Saturday at lunch! We ended up going to Bistronomic which was superb! I'd recommend anyone go there anytime instead of this restaurant.

    Friendly staff, good service, nice atmosphere. We ordered dessert which was unimpressive. The lemon creme brûlée was basically more like scrambled eggs. Wouldn’t go back based on that... but maybe it was just an off night?

    Ragu was just a pork beef mix in tomato sauce, pasta was Al dente. avocado  pesto penne had no avocado and was a tasteless goop. No bread for us but others got bread and olive oil. Caesar dressing with anchovies didn't grind into it the dressing but loose whole pieces. Coffee was closer to water. the lemon creme brulee was almost without lemon was not properly set nor crusted. Glad I didn't order the pizza though, our next table mates did and the crust was floppy.

    Delicious house bread, Solid food, quiet and generous portion. The decor is unassuming but I like the fact that it’s not a bustling place with loud music. It was a comfortable dining experience. Definitely going back.
