Great place for paper-thin pizza and quality pasta dishes. Is a tad hot in the restaurant due to the pizza oven being next to the dining area. Overall excellent experience.

Food is delicious; but unfortunately some of the worst service I've ever encountered, and I worked in the hospitality industry for years.

We went to celebrate my sister's birthday and decided to order a handful of appetizers, salad, and pasta to share. We knew it was going to be an interesting evening when our server walked away from our table multiple times in the middle of a drink order. You had to try and shout "wait, and he'd like a beer" as the server had left after only getting 1 drink order.

For some strange reason they didn't stagger anything we order. The pasta came out first and the antipasti came out last (doesn't that defeat the purpose). Everything came out in a very rushed manner. The staff tried to hurry everything on our plates and were annoyed when we weren't done with a plate yet on the table. We're talking less than 5 minutes to sit and enjoy the plates they had brought out. Finally, my mom spoke up to my server and said please slow down and let us enjoy the food, it's delicious but we're feeling very rushed. She was stern, but not out of line. From then on the server actually ignored my mother and would only go to the other side of the table to ask if we were ready for the next plates. So strange, and rude!

At the end of the meal, there was no asking about dessert or celebratory anything for my sister. He dropped off the (extremely expensive) check without so much as a well-wish. Now we didn't ask to speak to a manager about the terrible service, ask for anything to be comped, nothing. When the server came back to get the check, my mom very nicely said the food was delicious, but was there an issue with the kitchen...we felt very rushed like we were tourists you were trying to get out the door...our appetizers came last, and everyone who came to our table seemed annoyed. The server had the gall to say I'm sorry if you feel that way, but you shouldn't have yelled at me and continued to berate my mom for asking him to slow down the food earlier

Food was absolutely fresh and delicious. My table had the lamb chops, rigatoni with broccoli rabe and Tagliatelle in Bolognese. Service was quick and friendly and the menu is a little electronic tablet you effortlessly swipe to read and see beautiful pictures of their selections. Definitely going again!

Wife and I enjoyed an excellent dinner at Gnocco. Ambience and service were outstanding and the arancini balls and fanook salad w/olives and tangerine was a perfect combination. Shared arugula and prosciutto pizza and the gnocchi w/buffalo mozzarella. Pizza was solid but little heavy-handed on the greens and gnocchi were nice and small w/light sauce and basil-- just little starchy. Staff were friendly, accommodating, helpful and we'll definitely be back. Thanks for a great evening.

** They make great, freezing-cold dry martinis. So many places mess around but these hit the spot.

Very cute backyard area where you must sit (actually the inside of restaurant was pretty empty but the backyard was packed). Very nice and accommodating staff though a bit unprofessional. Food was good! Not the best in the world but worth going once. I had the pumpkin ravioli special that was amazing, we split the rice balls also veryyy good, and special burrate appetizer that was ok. Worth a glass of wine but skip the cocktails. We were also there for three hours so the vibes were good.

Gnocco was great. The food was good, the service was fantastic. The only thing is that the brunch menu is limited and if you have an egg intolerance you find yourself with a grand total of about 4-5 options which are: 2 pizzas, 2 paninis, and the pancakes. Throw in a lactose intolerance and you're down to about 2 options. Otherwise a great little spot—the food is quite good and you'd be able to get a larger selection at dinner. The outdoor dining is a beautiful option. Since it's in a greenhouse it also is great to sir in during the winter.
