We we seated in a corner where every time someone shut off the a/c it was sweltering. The a/c was turned off frequently.

There were several tables in the adjacent room available where the temperature was very comfortable

The restaurant is very pretty and we were seated immediately for our 6pm reservation. Our server was friendly and the menu and wine list were extensive. Cocktails were very good, although it took quite a while to receive them even though the restaurant wasn’t crowded on a Tuesday night. They offer half price wine on Tuesdays with lots to choose from the wine list ... great time to try something new! The bar area is nice, too. The crusty warm bread and olives were yummy. The short rib gnocchi was delicious and so was the Rigatoni Abbruzzese. My husband didn’t care for the Bolognese; he expected a much heartier meat sauce and it only had a small amount of crumbled meats. Next time he’ll try something different. We all enjoyed our pasta, which is made in-house and cooked al dente - so good! The Maitre’D and busboy were also very attentive and accommodating. This was only our second time here and we’d go back again. The last visit was on a Friday night and they had a guitarist playing background music. It’s a nice place for a relaxing meal, prices are good, service is great, and large menu. I wish I tried the veal chop special - it looked great at another table as we were walking out.

Service was excellent. Food is very good but menu outside of pasta fare somewhat limited. Very good wine list.

Waiter was too busy with something other than serving our table the whole meal. The waiter's helper should have been the one to get our tip, she saved the day for them. I did bring a friend who had not been there before. I was embarrassed that I has highly recommended it to her and they failed to live up to my suggestion.

Service was great. Caprese salad was fresh. Pomodori sauce on the ravioli Di aragosta was wonderful but I found the lobster pieces a little tough. The gnocci short rib was tender but I found the beef stock a little too salty.

It was delicious as usual and the little band they brought in was fantastic. But, I wish they would turn the volume down. It’s pretty hard to carry a conversation when the music is blaring in a small bar area that carries strongly through the rest of restaurant. My husband and I couldn’t hear a word of what each other is saying - which resulted him giving up so he plays on his phone while I twiddle my thumbs.

Server was great, food was great, the band was really good.... but waaaaay too loud.

We were seated in the lounge area of the restaurant at 6:30p. The music was Berlin’s and we could barely hear each. The waiter was not at all welcoming. He appeared bored and I don’t think he smiled once. The food was good but not worth the price. We will not return.

Food was good - not outstanding and I thought a little pricey. $18 for spaghetti (and no salad - salad additional $8-10) I'd rather pay $20 and get a house salad.

Service was great initially, but I think our server was busy and took a while to get coffee (had to ask the bus girl)

The meal was good and waitress was really nice. The place itself was a nice also. The only thing I did not like was me and my wife as the other couple with us stayed little long talking and having fun but the manager you can tell did not like us being there that long. He never once smiled nor asked us if we liked the food and place. When we got up to walk out I noticed our waitress was behind the front counter as the manager was there also. I jokingly said “Man, we almost stayed here all night talking. I’m sorry about that.” The waitress said it wasn’t a problem and how did we enjoy the place. Never once did the manager smile nor asked us. He just looked like he wanted out. So did we feel rushed? No but in a sense you know they wanted us out.

This is our second visit to the restaurant and I have to say, the service was excellent, but the food was below average. I had the mahi mahi which lacked any flavor whatsoever and my husbands pasta was simply boring. Not something I expected from this high end establishment, last tome we went the food was excellent and there was a pianist, etc.
Today I was Valentines Day. I expected more, no music. Service, again.. wS excellent... but food was lacking significantly.

I won’t return.

I had the linguine di mare with garlic white wine sauce. The quality of the seafood was impressive but I didn’t care for the sauce. It was thick and bland. My husband had the tagliatelle bolognese and found it just average and kind of dry. The bread was very good and they had a nice selection of wine.
