    The service was excellent. Our waitress , Nancy, was so friendly but efficient and helpful Our food was good. My wife had the wild salmon was pleased with het dinner. I ordered the veal chop and I found it had much fat and in sine areas hard to chew. It’s stuffing was delicious and the pasta included was very good. I t was a bit expensive but ok

    Be Aware - the prices in the restaurant are substantially higher than what you see on the website. Example: chicken parm on the website is $20.50….in restaurant is $25. That’s 25% higher which is substantial. Caesar salad is $8 on web/$11 in restaurant. That said, wait staff are excellent, friendly and atmosphere is very nice. Food is good but not great. Caesar salad is very unique. Bread is just ok. Calamari app needs to be much crispier and larger for $16/17. (Same price as Costello’s btw and 1/2 the size) Weirdly, chicken parm comes with potato/veg and if you want to sub pasta (which you’d expect to be cheaper for the restaurant), they charge $6…making the meal $31.

    This is a a fabulous Italian BYOB, the service was spectacular. They are very accommodating and were very willing to honor any request for changes to the meals. The pasta is all homemade and absolutely delicious. Our favorite meals were the eggplant parm appetizer, the fettuccine bolegnaisse and the very best dish was the sachchiette (with shrimp instead of scallops ). We were very pleased to sit in the front room as there was a very large party that took most of the back room ( maybe it would have been best to close that room for the large party ). Will definitely come back. !!!

    Welcome and service were good. Food was not up to our expectations from previous visits. Artichokes had changed, not grilled, some yellow/white sort of sauce squeezed over them taking away from their healthfulness and taste. Dressing on arugula salad lacked flavor, no tanginess. Crostoni on Ceasar salad was off tasting. Entrees were ok, though sauce for one was thick creamy, not expected.
