From start to finish this evening was incredible. I noted that it was a special occasion on the reservation and we were treated like royalty. Absolutely delicious food, very knowledgeable somm, cozy feel, and friendly people. 10/10 would recommend.

We had a quiet weekday lunch. We sat in a very comfortable booth. Our waiter adjusted the sliding door so the sun didn’t blind us. The pressed sandwiches were perfect for lunch with a side salad. Get the bombolini for dessert. Orange zest really brightens the flavor.

The food was great, service was great. But I really hate when I have to look up the menu or rely on my server to guide me toward what I want. I highly recommend putting the English versions of these plates and wines underneath the Italian version. I’m sure I’m not the only one that thinks this would really help improve their experience.

Took a long time to order. Not many vegan options and when I ordered a pasta dish with no diary, the dish was so salty I could barely eat it.

Mussels were very salty, papardelle tasted like it had garlic powder sprinkled on top and was flat and disappointing. Service was good and it’s a gorgeous space but the food just disappoints somehow

I came with a party of three. The restaurant's website said there would be a valet available but there was none, so I got to spend 15 minutes trying to find parking. We were promptly seated with a beautiful view. The interior is modern and well-designed. The restaurant uses a QR code menu but has poor reception so we had to wait to ask for paper menus. The paper menu we were given didn't have a wine list, so it was about 15 minutes before we could even order wine. Our Sangiovese was fabulous-- no complaints there.

We ordered burrata for the table. They make it in house-- the cheese itself is flawless. Curiously they served it with a burnt cracker-like thing that didn't go very well with the flavor of the cheese or taste good on its own. We ordered two pasta dishes and a risotto for the meal. I ordered the lamb sausage bucatini-- this is a $22 bowl of pasta that fit in a small bowl. Small portions aren't new to gourmet restaurants, but the flavor has to be there to compensate. It wasn't. This dish was so oversalted it could have come from Taco Bell, and I do not say that lightly. I'm not sure if that came from the pasta water or the sausage itself, but it was terrible and I cannot believe for a second the chef tasted it before sending it out. My girlfriend got the Risotto Funghi ($24). It was fabulous and a generous portion-- no complaints there. Our other guest ordered the Papardelle. I did not try the dish, but it was described as "good, not great" by someone who does not frequently dine at gourmet restaurants.

The ambiance was mediocre. The music was not too loud, but I was confused by the choice of recycled #1 rap hits throughout the evening ("Hypnotize", "California Love", etc). It just didn't fit.

The service was attentive and friendly throughout the evening. I just wish the food were better. I've eaten at this restaurant twice prior to this evening and had unforgettable meals. The quality seems to have declined sharply since.

The best part about this restaurant is the location and ambiance. The food is overpriced for mediocre Italian food. The menu options are very limited. I would recommend for a drink and an app and nothing more.

Our pasta dish was cold and undercooked. The mussels were fine. Tiramisu was very good. Overall not a good value and flavor was not that exciting. It can’t be that hard to do great Italian food. Service however was very good.

We loved the beet carpaccio, appetizers and many of the dishes. However, the pumpkin soup and orecchiette were very over seasoned. Also the orecchiette looked unappetizing because the sauce was so heavy. The mushroom risotto was delicious. The chicken cutlet was one of the best I have eaten, but the rest of the dish was oddly put together. The spicy frisee and watermelon radish covered the chicken and overwhelmed it. The celeriac was not cooked and was the same color as the polenta. I think the chicken would be better served with a more traditional sautéed garlic and greens with the polenta. The gnocchi were good, but perhaps a bit of contrasting color would have been nice.

Limited menu selection, food was good but value wasn’t there. They have an extensive wine list—much more wine than food. Nice area for the restaurant, in RiNo area.

The calamari and beat carpaccio was amazing but our pasta dish was lackluster. The crab was too finely shredded and it was incredibly under seasoned. Our attentive waitress asked how we liked everything and we told her about the pasta… she let us know it was the first night for the item on the menu and appreciated the feedback and ended up comping the dish, despite us saying we were totally fine to pay for it. Great ambiance and would come back.

Overall, it doesn't have the whole experience 'tied together' in a way that a great dining experience should. They have pieces and parts that are good (the appetizer was good and the cocktails and wine specials are good), but the service, entrees were bland, unexciting, and it felt like we were still in the middle of the staff who were there prepping (one guy sat at the bar across from us tapping away on his laptop).

aww asked for a four top outside and was told no, wed have to have a two top. My friend is 6ft4 and we were shoved in the far corner on the patio by the door the staff used so it was quite distracting. No one came to the table for over 20 min and literally everyone had to walk past us.
The food was good and overall service was fine (not outstanding) but the fact that not ONE group of four was seated outside while we dined was very annoying since our experience could have been much btr Ina more comfortable area
