We had a fantastic belated Valentine’s Day our. The cocktails were amazing and our pasta dishes were delightful and more generous portions than the left few times we have visited. The lamb garganelli is delicious!

What a wonderful evening. Service from Eric was top notch and the meal was amazing. Started with mussels in limoncello butter sauce followed by ricotta cavatelli and mushroom cappattelli. Both meals were delicious. Concluded the evening with tiramisu and cappuccino. Yum!!!

Our server, Laura, was lovely! Food was delicious and seem to have flavors unique to i.e.! "The Cedar" was consistant and just as delicious as I remember it from past visits. We've brought friends here previously and plan on doing that again. Thanks again for a lovely evening!

I would suggest adding more pasta to the mushroom dish. Pasta is inexpensive, no reason you cannot be generous with it

We were seated in the bar and had the pleasure of having the bartender as our server. He was attentive, engaging and knowledgeable. As with previous visits, the food was exceptional. I love how well the service team works together. We will certainly be back.

We’ve been quite a few times and have enjoyed the food immensely! Everything is made fresh and always so tasty! The mushroom capiletti is out of this world! The wait staff is excellent-knowledgeable, personable and attentive. They get a 10+ from us!

Great food and service. Scallops were perfectly prepared, ravioli had luscious cheese, served with shrimp. The espresso was so smooth I didn't use sugar. The only minor complaint is the noise level was more than I prefer.

Todd was a wonderful server. When we deliberated what bottle of wine to order, he gave us small tastes to help with the decision. His service made a special evening even more so.

I would have preferred a round table versus a booth. We were 3 couples and so those on the end couldn’t really communicate with one another

On the spur of the moment, we decided to eat dinner at the Italian Eatery. My wife and I had eaten there about two-three years ago, and on that visit, we ate on the patio. This time it was late January, and our daughter was joining us. We got there early, about 5 PM and we were glad we did, as it was standing room only when we left the restaurant an hour and a half later.

The cocktails were delicious, and after querying our server, we ordered an Italian white wine to drink with our entrees. Her recommendation was very good. We shared an appetizer of scallops, a pear and apple salad, and two pasta entrees. They were all prepared exquisitely. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, and the service was excellent. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Noise is a factor for an intimate conversation with an old friend who I don't get to see often.
Daniel was terrific....delightful, informative, definitely an enhancement to the dinner. Thx.

Food and service were, as always, excellent. Management honored our request to be in the quieter section of the restaurant, which was much appreciated and made the evening much more pleasant than it would have been in the noisier section.
