I had such high hopes but we had a less than desirable server. We had to remind him 3 times for the bottle of Pellegrino that we ordered. When it was time for our dessert My friend asked to not have ice cream with her chocolate cake as she is lactose intolerant and indeed her dessert came out with ice cream and then we had to ask for spoons to eat our dessert.

The food was good but with the service that I received I'm not sure that I would go back.

Loved our dinner - but the checkin process was a bit odd. We had a reservation but didn’t really seem to matter! Service once seated was incredible and food was amazing! We had the mushroom pasta, lamb shank and shared apps! Wonderful meal

Food was absolutely fresh and delicious. Restaurant was busy and they were running light on staff. Regardless, everything came out hot and enjoyable.

Osso Buco was a winner. Prices are moderate. A BYOB, so bring your own alcoholic libation. Menu a bit limited but shows creativity.

Great evening. Dinner on a Tuesday with friends so the service was very intimate and impeccable.
Revamped menu was awesome and the food presentation was well done. Everyone’s meal was delicious!
And the fact that it’s a BYOB makes this restaurant a must try for anyone who hasn’t been there yet!

The pappardelle my wife ordered was reheated from its preparation sometime before. The pappardelle had merged, from the reheating, into a rather tasteless mass. I had pasta in my cafeteria at college that was better.

Much more than your average neighborhood Italian restaurant. The food was suddenly high-quality but very interesting. The gnocchi was more like a gourmet mashed potatoes and mushroom. Everything was fresh and the sauces were great. Certainly will go there again soon.

When we arrived at the restaurant we were seated upstairs and our friends were seated downstairs. It took about 15 minutes for them to realize we were waiting for each other. My husband ordered the special pasta dish. He was given the wrong order. Instead of apologizing, our waiter said “you will probably like this dish better and desserts on me” Big deal!! We didn’t even want dessert
