Crazy expensive
25.00 for 5 fried shrimp with french fries ( not on menu)
5.00 added to bill because i needed xtra blush sauce for linguine that was dry on half of platter
Food wasn't bad by any means
Nothing extraordinary to warrant 100 bill including tip
waiter was attentive
Just be prepared to pay big time for same quality of food i get at other restaurants for less

Our server was very attentive in telling us to be patient because of the lack of help. With that in mind we sat back and relaxed.

The waitress rude. The lobster pasta was
Fishy and the asparagus was mush. The martinis Were great. The waitress was rude and food was over priced. Did I mention the waitress was rude.

The food and service was excellent. Matt, our server, was attentive throughout the evening and we never had to seek him out for our order. He was friendly and quick with bringing things to our table. The noise level was higher than I was used to there, but I believe it may because of the plexi-glass (darn Covid) around trapping in the sound. I would still highly recommend the restaurant because it has amazing Italian food. More people should know about this place....

I made reservations for Easter dinner several weeks beforehand. I asked to be seated indoor, in the main restaurant since I had my older parents and in-laws. We were first seated on the outdoor patio, at a folding table with folding chairs. I was not eating Easter dinner on a folding chair nor would I expect my older parents to sit and be comfortable to eat dinner. In addition, the music was so loud we couldn’t even hear our server. I immediately complained and they scrambled to find us another table. We were accommodated indoor, but in a booth, in the bar area. Again, noisy and uncomfortable, and we were seated in a bar with someone who is a recovering alcoholic. We could not be accommodated to sit in the main restaurant, and if we wanted to eat, we had no choice but to sit in the bar. Not how I expected to have Easter Sunday dinner with my parents and in-laws. All of the food was delicious, but the prices were double, which I expected for a holiday, but for the money I spent on dinner, I expected to dine in comfort, in the main restaurant, not at a bar. Very disappointing holiday, and I will never dine here for a special occasion again.

Good food & service. But I asked to be seated at a table when making reservation. We we’re seated in bar area pub table, which had another half bar turned table(of 4) looking straight at us while we were eating. Very Loud and way to close. was kind of annoying considering I wanted a nice dinner w my fiancé. Wasn’t what I was expecting. But would come back and give another shot.

Went for my son’s bday. Asked about bringing a cake and she said she makes cakes. I said how much? She said in her best broken English $60, which I thought in my head that it must be $16. WHO would pay $60 for a bday cake? Yup, that’s what they charged. Family of 6 was $400. Ridiculous and not worth it. Food is just okay.

Food was good. Drink prices seemed to have gone up, $12.00 for a chocolate martini, I expect to pay that in the city, but not here. And I thought $18.00 for 3 scallops was expensive. Other than that I do like it there.

Valentine’s Day: written with the understanding that it’s a busy day, however the time we went it was not that busy. I typically don’t even write reviews unless it’s a great experience - but this was awful for almost a $200 dinner for two people. There was something with every course

Service was great - that was the best of the experience

First of all, WOW the fruit flies at the table were insane. It’s February! Not sure what it is keeping them around but leads me to believe it’s not being cleaned properly

1st course: stuffed mushrooms. The mushrooms were cooked well and the sauce was good. There was hardly any crabmeat in them. It tasted like complete breading

2nd course: we both upgraded to Caesar salads ($2.50 each). Not sure why the increase in price because the salad literally consisted of lettuce, dressing and 2 croutons. Not even Parmesan cheese or anything - so again not sure why the upgrade for a substitute of dressing

3rd course: I got the sea bass. The fish was cooked well but lacked flavor. It needed a sauce. The risotto was so bland I had to douse it in salt. My husband got a seafood pasta dish - I can’t remember the name but it has scallops, shrimp, lobster, calamari, mussels, etc. The sauce was good, but EVERY bit of seafood was so over cooked you could barely eat it (and I’m a sucker for scallops!) Everything was tough. It tasted like diner seafood rather than an Italian restaurant

4th course: we shared Tiramasu. It’s a good thing we weren’t sharing this with a child because you could get drunk off this dessert. I understand it has some amaretto in it traditionally, but this was STRONG to the point it wasn’t edible.

This was our first time here and we definitely won’t be going back

The place was a bit outdated. Our table was sticky to the touch. Our sever was amazing. The pork chop was bland and the risotto was too watery. Paid too much for an "olive garden" experience.

Busy Valentines weekend. Food was very good and it was nice to not feel rushed. My only complaint - the room we were in smelled terribly of cigars. It was gross and there was a guy at the bar smoking cigars. It didn’t even know that was allowed. And we sat by the back door and someone kept coming in and out letting people in. It’s 29 degrees. Maybe be mindful of the people sitting at those tables and for the love of god stop allowing cigar smoking.
