It’s always my favorite place. The food is superb and they really care about the customer. They have the best lobster in garlic sauce. Enjoy!

I haven’t been in years but was recently told by a friend that it was really good. I was taken about 20 minutes after my reservation time so we didn’t start out good. We sat outside, they have made a very nice area in front of the restaurant for outdoor dining. Water and bread came promptly. The device was very good. I ordered an off menu special of chicken scarpariello, I wan not impressed, there were no garlic, lemon or rosemary flavors. All traditional scarp flavors. I had one small slice of a potato and 3 what looked like breakfast sausage links. This was a miss. My wife had the branzino filet which was prepared very well. Some mixed vegetables under two filets. I had a glass of wine and a Caesar salad. $114.00 with tip. I found it to be a little on the high side for this level of food preparation.

Still, the service was good and the menu varied with many daily specials. I do recommend the restaurant, just not the chicken scarp.

Was once a special place now quite ordinary . Outside is nice. However put us in a very busy spot by the door said nothing else was available , so were heard everything. Within 15 minutes 2 separate sets of people who walked up without reservations were given better tables .

The linguine vongole was not what I expected as there was sand in the clam meats. The pasta should be a garlic, lemon and white wine base but it did not taste like that. I am not sure what vegetables were added to the pasta but it did not complement the dish at all. I was very disappointed with this dish as I had higher expectation for it.

We ate outside on a very hot evening. The food was excellent, service great, and always interesting specials. The zucchini flowers were fabulous. With the heat and the zucchini flowers , I might have felt like we were in Italy, except for the annoying train noise. It was some kind of slow moving maintenance train that ruined the ambiance. Otherwise, dinner was excellent

I reserved table INSIIDE since I’m 91 & can’t tolerate heat. When we arrived (on time 6:45) we were told there weren’t any tables inside.I went inside to sit at tiny table near the bar. I could not stay outside any longer. My son—in-law waited for host to clear up situation. He finally said it was ok to stay at the table where I was sitting. As I rated the food tops, service excellent! Could have been a more comfortable setting!
