We had a great meal. The specials were excellent we had both veal and swordfish. Both were cooked to perfection. There are also some very nice wines on the menu and we had a wife in Kosovo that was reasonable and excellent. The staff is great will

I had made a reservation on Open Table, I was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant was very cozy and the food was really great. I ordered from the Pre-Fixe Menu, which included appetizer, entree and dessert. I had the Mussels Scampi for appy, Penne Vodka for entree and a brownie for dessert. The only one little negative is that it seemed to take a little long for appetizers to come and then it seemed that the food “rushed” out after that……lol…..but overall, it was great, I will go back again

The ambiance was very nice. Food quality
Was good, but portion sizes were quite small. Our waitress was terrible. When we were seated she repeatedly came over and asked if we were ready to order even though we repeatedly told her we needed more time. When we ordered, her knowledge of the items on the menu was very poor. We had to repeatedly ask for items we needed...like straws for our drinks. We ordered a bottle of Pellegrino water which we did not finish so we asked her for a cap or cork so we could take it home. After a very lengthy period she finally returned with a cork that wouldn’t fit. We suggested that she get a sharp knife and trim the cork down to fit: Her comment “I don’t have time to cut down the cork”. In our opinion a terrible server. The noise level was growing and growing and we couldn’t wait to leave. Unfortunately it took our server an excessive amount of time to bring our check.

Very welcoming and friendly service with an exceptional menu with a wide variety of selections. We both loved what we got and had a hard time choosing from so many good sounding options. Love the private parking lot since this can be a tough area to park. Prices were fair for the quality and the way things are these days. Will be back for sure.

Food was excellent as was the ambiance. Due to the staff shortage we kept getting other table’s food orders. No one knew where anything went. We also asked for a bread basket several times and never received one as well as no water refills until we had to ask.

All in all it was a great meal with great friends in a great place.

Food was delicious. Short ribs were tender and flavorful. Had it with double veggies (mixed and wilted spinach) both cooked perfectly. The other dish was Chicken Cassa which is like a fajita. Delicious, but a little spicy. Service could be more attentive.

Absolutely awful food. Skirt steak was tough and had no taste. Pasta dish was cold and tasted like they used a cheap jar sauce. We were really shocked at how bad it was. Very disappointed

Great local place for " comfort food." Nice varied menu, excellent sole oreganata and onion soup. Drinks ok, albeit a bit "weak" Will definitely go back and try other great food.

Great food, excellent menu with good variety. My filet was cooked to a perfect medium rare and the accompaniments were delicious. Good service and atmosphere. Good for dinner with friends, date night, or if you just don’t feel like cooking! Everyone will find something great on this menu. The carrot cake for dessert did not disappoint!
