Very good to excellent in all categories. Only issue was noise, but it was tolerable.
i when there on a date with my girlfriend of 3 years for a late v-day gift everything went well just that my sever was kinda stuck up and not very friendly but the food was good and still had a good time even tho the service wasn't the best
On February 17, 2018 we had a very bad experience. We ordered an appetizer, salads and entrees but our warm appetizer & salads were brought to our table at the same time. So we asked that the salads come later. Then at the very beginning of eating our salads the manager brought the entrees. We requested that the entrees be brought later. When the entrees came out about 15 minuets later, you could tell they had been under heating lamps & not fresh or hot.
Shame on the manager. The food & service are usually outstanding.
Way too loud-couldn’t even hear spouse across from my table. Seated quickly, service good. Pasta delicious -pizza cold.
Even though the restaurant was busy for Valentines dinner, service was excellent, food was great, drinks were made well and timely, and ambience was comfortable and romantic- main course arrival time following the appetizer was appropriate and too quick, one of my pet peeves when dinning out. Tried adding pix of the cute heart-shaped pasta but OpenTable site wont take 'em.
Italian cuisine has hundreds of different dishes from the meny regions of Italy. I was surprised that they only had about 6-8 pasta dishes. in the menú. The food was good but scarce, at lest the dish I ordered. I had the butternut squash ravioli: all 5 of them. My wife’s was a bit better: linguini with frutti de mare. The ambiance is very nice but don’t come hungry. Or fill up in the wonderful bread with olive oil.
We love the views from this place. The service and ambiance are second to none. Our wine was reasonably priced and very good. We split the Pollo alla Cacciatorri. It's sauce was pale and lacked flavor. Also, the chicken was chewy. The fennel salad was delightful. Full of flavor and dressed perfectly. We would go back yet again but, order a different entree.
Our lunch was perfect for the ocsssion.
A little spendy for 4 with no alcohol.
The service was very good.
We had our wedding reception dinner there back in 2011 do restaurant close to my heart however seems to have gone down hill
