    The food is out of this world! The prices are incredibly reasonable on the food and wine. They also have a fun cocktail list and make great drinks! We have never had a bad meal or experience there and go all of the time!

    We had to wait for a table even with reservations. Then we were squished into table in bar area. Service tried to be good but very busy and not enough help. I usually love the food here but tonight pasta was not cooked right but didn’t want to wait more and send it back. The apps were good. Dessert was awful. Frozen tiramisu and hard lava cake. Not a great night. They need more help and better cooks.

    Food was all very good & price points favor the diner(s). We thoroughly enjoyed everything that we ordered from the food menu. Had the drinks been as good as the food, would rate 5 stars overall… espresso martini was very sweet, hot & dirty martini was off as well but overall thoroughly enjoyed food & ambiance. Most certainly will dine again soon!

    We made a reservation but still had to wait 1/2 hour to be seated at a table too small. The food came out in a timely manner but one dish was smothered in garlic and had to be returned. Unfortunately I feel like there are better choices in Melrose.

    We went to celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary, and indicated so on the online reservation form. Interesting, since there was no mention of our special day, at all. Was asking if we were coming in for a special occasion, to which we indicated we were. Was this an oversight by the staff, or a datapoint to be collected and sold later? Don’t know and really don’t care, just thought it was odd. I wasn’t looking for anything free, just thought someone would mention it and I could impress my wife that I FINALLY preplanned an anniversary dinner. If it wasn’t for the wait staff, and especially our wonderful waitress, Tania, it would have been an average night out with average food. She saved our evening. Whatever Tania is getting paid, it’s not enough. She deserves more. So do the customers for the price we pay. We may try to eat here again, although I have other Italian places with better food and lower prices.

    The food and drinks were amazing. Our server was rude. She spilled every one of our drinks on the table. The last drink she delivered she spilled all over my phone and didn’t say anything. We also felt very rushed to leave so they could turn the table over.

    Celebrating an engagement. Had it in the notes when booking reservation but wasn’t acknowledged. Ordered Prosecco and it was brought to the table still wrapped and obviously uncorked and just left there for 10 minutes before we had to ask the busboy for assistance. Also, one of the glasses was dirty along the rim. Was still in the middle of the appetizer when the entree was brought to us and then the check was brought to us while still eating the entree. Was never asked once how everything was or if we needed anything. Ordered the chicken piccata and was given it with linguine with RED sauce on the side which didn’t make any sense for piccata. Just a horrible experience for what was supposed to be a special night. Was a regular there and used to rave about it but not anymore.

    We were a little late for our reservation but the staff were very gracious & also gracious when we requested to move to a different table. The food was delicious & the service very good even though it was obvious that the staff was really stretched & working at top speed.
