Hannah at the hostess station was so sweet and pleasant. Our service was extremely slow and once the food arrived it was lukewarm. The restaurant ambiance is perfect for any occasion.

The sad part was we said that this dinner was a special occasion and they seated us within 2 feet of a party of 8 so that neither party had any privacy. There were plenty of tables so there was no reason to make us so close that we were intruding on each others conversations. The food was okay but we could not enjoy due to the seating.

Far better than last time we eat here. As before, the food was exceptional. We both chose the spaghetti and meatballs. The spaghetti was perfect, al dente and the meatballs were some of the best we have ever had. The sauce was good, very good while the bread was to die for and the salad, while small, had exceptional flavor. The house red was acceptable but not great while the house white was very tasty although with a bit of an odd aroma.

This time the service was much better, our waitress was pleasant and competent while her assistant was simply exceptional. The only small slip was failing to bring more bread as promised.

The kitchen was quick, almost too quick, as the salad took a while but then the main dish was ready before we could finish our small salads.

The decor is very nice but the interior gets a bit noisy when the place is busy.

We went for the Monday special....spaghetti and meatballs for $19 including salad, bread and a glass of wine (or beer). The only thing better than the staff were those meatballs and sauce!! DELISH!!

The decor is super fun. It's very Las Vegas faux Italy. Service was a bit hit and miss with a well meaning server and assistant. Not exactly at the level we may have expected but not bad. Several dishes were really great. I loved the crab fritters and the seasonal root veg dish. Everything else was good. Not sure I would say they deserve the high end prices for the food. But it was a lovely evening with no rushing.

Kinna was an exceptional waitress! She was very informative about the menu and was super helpful when asked about the entrees’. We had the crab cakes for appetizer. The pepper inside made for a nice spicy kick. My daughters had Carbonara and it was delicious. The whole table had to taste to understand there delight. It was my birthday and Kinna and the chef brought out an amazing desert. They even sang happy birthday. My water was always full, and the bread was amazing. I could go on and on! The food and experience is worth every penny.

We did not care much for our main entrees, but the appetizers, drinks, and desserts were fabulous. The best part about the experience was the ambiance. It felt like we were on a romantic vacation. We will definitely be recommending this to others.

Dinner was luscious as usual. Bread & olive oil was so fresh. Salad was crisp & lightly dressed. Spaghetti was perfectly aldonte & meatballs were best ever. We each had a Penta costal cocktail & then beer & white wine. Delicious & romantic evening. Servers were attentive & efficient.

Made a reservation for 7 but we were not seated until 7:35. That may have been OK had it not been a Monday night. While we enjoy the complimentary glass of champagne while waiting,we would have preferred to have been seated at the reservation time. Monday may have been a busy time since they offer a 19.99 dinner special....Hence the reservation. Of the six at the table, two would return, three would not and one would but would not recommend.

Meals were delicious. Wine was top notch. Service was outstanding. However we ordered the special & were not informed of the price which turned out to be rather pricey. Be sure to ask

How awesome to be offered a complimentary glass of champagne while you wait for your table! Loved the feel of an old Italian home/courtyard and wanted to take pictures but didn’t want to look like a tourist. Was glad to have the option of a half glass or whole glass of wine; selection of which was somewhat limited for those looking for just a glass but it was sufficient. Food was fantastic; the halibut served on garlic potatoes and spinach was melt in your mouth good. The seafood pasta was also terrific. Would have liked to have seen Gelato on the menu but they accommodated us by offering Cherry Sorbet instead even though it wasn’t on the menu. Service was fast and friendly! Wasn’t a stuffy place; one would feel comfortable in casual or dressy clothes.

Dining at this restaurant was a great experience! They greeted us with champagne while we waited for our table, then toasted us with Chianti once we were seated. The service was impeccable and the food delicious. I highly recommend the grilled Caeser salad, spaghetti and meatballs, the Nonna Maria pizza, and the desserts!

The only improvement I think that this restaurant could make was to provide some seating with better light and to ask patrons if that is what they might prefer. Or else, put the lighting over the booths on dimmers, so that patrons could regulate the light at their own table. Otherwise, it was a top notch experience, start to finish.

This was an amazing total experience! The atmosphere/decor was gorgeous! And loved the little added extras I had never seen anywhere else before, i.e., complimentary champagne while waiting for our table! and when first seated, the server giving everyone a small glass of wine to toast with. Soooo cool! and the food was ah-mazing! Loved the seasonal squash dessert, too.

This is always the place we bring out of town friends and usually always have such a wonderful night. The service this particular night was slow and lousy. We definitely seemed like an after thought. Salads game out immediately. Meat and cheese tray came out nearly 30-35 minutes later. Along with some drinks we had been waiting on. Immediately followed by our entrees. Then we were made to feel like it was our fault the table as crowded because the cheeseboard has just arrived when the entire plates came out. Overall very odd timing and experience. It may have been an off night but we will think twice before recommending this place now.
