    Italian food the way it should be—simple ingredients prepared well. Decent if not exceptional wine list; attentive, friendly service. Music was a bit load and out of place. Will definitely go back, interested to see seasonal changes to the menu.

    We truly experienced a fantastic service here, something we have never experienced anywhere in the US till date. And for that I must thanks Shaya, our server who took care of us. At the outset I must say that as described by several people before me, the food here is delicious. We were a group of 4 and were celebrating my husband’s birthday. We ordered two tomato basil soup to share among the 4 of us. The first act of great service was that they split the 2 soups into 4 different bowls which is not common at all in the US. We also got a goat cheese ricotta for appetizers. We had enquired about the fantastic bread that came with the ricotta and Shaya promised to bring us some more of it along with our entrees. However, being a busy day she couldn’t get us the bread in time and honestly we didn’t mind that very much since we loved the food that we had ordered. For entrees we ordered a Calabrian cauliflower, sphagetti and mushroom cappelletti. All of these tasted great. The mushroom cappelletti was particularly delicious, earthy and strong. It was my favorite dish of the evening. We felt like service was on the slower side and things were taking some time but to make up for it our server Shaya gave us a loaf of the bread that we loved so much to take home as well as waived off our soup and appetizers from the check. She really went above and beyond anything we expected and did something to make our evening truly special and spectacular. Thanks once again Shaya! My mom is very much looking forward to eating the loaf of bread ! Having said all that, the restaurant is actually very reasonably priced for the quality of food and the fantastic service. We will definitely be back here again at the earliest opportunity. PS: The food was so delicious that I actually forgot to take any pictures of it.

    Never Disappointed!! That tends to be our mantra each time we dine at ie. We made our reservation on Fri for an early dinner on Sunday and talked about the Limoncello Steamed Mussels all weekend prior to getting there. It’s cozy, has a great vibe, the hosts that greet you upon entering are always welcoming, and the wait staff is attentive and pleasant. We always feel like we have been transported to a spot in Tuscany! See you next time! Buon Appetito!!

    Had a very good meal. Good food, fun place, bit pricey, weird waiter, but all in all a strong B+. Shaved root salad was fantastic, meatball trio appetizer was good but on the bland side. Sausage rigatoni delish & in big portion, trout good but took the waiter 2 trips to the kitchen to reveal the frozen/farm raised source of the fish & not the “I presume rainbow” suggested upon ordering. Lastly, the summer plant boxes here are stunning. A+ to that designer.

    Had the Spaghettini Nero. Yum! My wife enjoyed her mushroom dish, the drinks were good, server Monica was great, everything was well organized. Some of the music was maybe a little too louder hip, but then again we know the place caters to a younger audience.

    Per our request for an outdoor table in the shade was perfect for our relaxed Birthday celebration. Appetizers of Eggplant and Goat Ricotta were delicious and the Lounge Lizard, Prosecco, Vodka Gimlet and dry Friuli Bianco were very refreshing. The entrees included Chop Salad, Mushroom Cappelletti, Hazy Fagottini and my Panzanella Trout was prepared perfectly. I'd like to give special recognition to our server Erica G. Not only did she welcome us warmly but gave us exceptional service throughout our dinner. Erica also surprised our guest of honor with a "handmade" Birthday card and lighted candle with a bowl of creamy gelato to compliment the chocolate olive oil torte! Thank you so much Erica for making our special occasion very special! Sincerely, Tom M and Family

    We come here several times a year and always appreciate the new items on the menu as well as favorites. Service is always excellent, knowledgeable with solid recommendations on wines. For some reason, the cocktail menu doesn’t strike the same perfection; I’d like to see a few more options.

    IE was so accommodating. There was not an option for outdoor seating for online reservations via OpenTable. At arrival, much effort was given to making that happen. Shayna, our server, was personable and efficient . Her suggestions for meals and wine were most helpful and much enjoyed. As always, the food was excellent, the custom cocktails were delightful and the patio ambiance made our evening special.

    Totally fine, I'd happily eat there again, but for our roughly $100 bill, I imagine there are other places we'd pick (or recommend to friends) over this one.
