Great service, Excellent Staff, Good Food. I thought my dish needed more flavor. The pasta source and the Chicken parm were kind of blend.

Food is always good. Service was slow because of a huge party outside, lack of adequate staff. Music was too loud so people were talking louder than usual. Very noisy!

I found the restaurant through open table first time there. Food was very tasty and service was very good. Parking is a bit of an issue but aside from that I thought the experience was very good

Food is delicious- SMALL PORTIONS. Side dish of broccoli is extra & fit on my SMALL plate & cost $15 MORE! Waiter was very nice & apologized a million times for not being able to get our drinks or dinners out in a timely manner. 4 other tables got up & walked out. I’ve been there once before-before covid & service or lack of, was the same. I believe in 2nd chances.
We weren’t looking for anything for free- we had already paid bill & we’re on way out. When my husband told the owner last time we came it was the same slow or “lack of” service the owner told him GOOD- DONT COME BACK. OWNER was around & VERY AWARE of the bad service & sat at his own table eating, ignoring everything that was going on- I would never give any business a bad review, however anyone reading reviews to choose a good night out should be warned. Like I said, food was delicious but that’s all the positive I have for this place.

We had seafood dishes and the calamari, scallops, and shrimp were cooked to perfection. The dishes were absolutely delicious. The portions were gigantic. We noticed most people had leftovers to take home. Everyone was extremely courteous and gave just the right amount of attention. We will definitely be back!

Nice trendy little neighborhood Italian Restaurant with excellent food and good service. Salads and Pasta's are great. Only complaint is for the price the Cowboy steak was sub par and very salty. Good wine selection as well. I will be back, will just not get the steak.

We made a reservation for outdoors, not knowing it would be rainy, windy and about 50 degrees on May 29th. The food was great and the staff did their best but it was pretty uncomfortable.

The food was delicious, the management very hospitable. Service, however was slow. Also, the young bussing staff need training and supervision in preparing the table and serving properly. We will return and try again because the food is outstanding and we’d like to sample other items on the menu.

Lovely tent set up for outdoor dining. Menu was limited and expensive. Food was nothing special, and the veal was over cooked. Ate at the original in Brooklyn years ago, and now know why I didn’t go back. I think they may be coasting on the old-time reputation.

My recent college graduate was home for a visit and wanted Italian food. We’ve been to Garguilo’s in Coney Island and have never been disappointed. This visit was no different. Everyone was friendly and polite. The food was amazing. The owner stopped by our table to welcome us and thanked us for coming. I cannot wait to go back!
