    The service was absolutely lovely! The food was decent, but the pricing was over the top, I frequent Vespaio, and this food didn’t even hold a candle. Vespaio’s pricing is high but fair.

    Risotto is a must have. Osso bucco was great but the polenta was average. Gnocchi was wonderful. Calamari was tender and delicious. Burrata was soft and yummy. Tirimasu was great- my wife doesn’t like it normally but really enjoyed it here. A definite must.

    Hubs and I enjoyed their prix fixe NYE dinner -- so delicious! The ceasar salad was the best I've ever had; Hubs had similar praise for his cacio e pepe entree. We ordered an extra side of foccacia bread, which I'd highly recommend (and they'll generously give extra dipping oil!) The boar bolognese was perfectly al dente, though I wished for a bit more on my plate; ditto the delicious salmone. Both of us had to pace ourselves so as not to gobble up our fish in 3 healthy bites. Hubs loves tiramisua and the one this night didn't disappoint; still, the limoncello marscarpone cake was so danged good it had Hubs wishing he'd stepped a little further outside his comfort zone. We'll certainly be back for a date night dinner!

    Wants t great that night. Prefixe felt like a try not a hit. The wiener was taking to all the tables and skipped ours. We love the restaurant in past and will go back to see if this was a one off.

    When it's good, it's awesome, sadly it's rather inconsistent. We had one great meal, and three okay. Server was nice. Ambience inside is somewhat noisy and tables are crowded, outside is nicer, except the traffic noise (nothing restaurant can do). At price point, inconsistent menu makes this a not recommended for us any longer.

    Celebrated my birthday here. We were seated promptly at our reservation time by a friendly host. The fresh warm ciabatta bread ($5) was wonderful. My veal parmigiana was good; however I wish for a bit less mozzarella on it and more sauce on the accompanying pasta. My wife had a chicken breast and prosciutto in a Gorgonzola sauce. She loved it. Had a nice tiramisu for desert, free on your birthday. All in all, we would return, but only for special occasions as it is a bit pricey for us.

    Out of 6 people, 2 had very good food, 1 had okay food and 3 had not good at all food. The prices were very high considering the quality, service and ambiance of the restaurant. The best thing about the night was their balsamic artichoke appetizer. Great portion size and absolutely delicious. Would not recommend tho, and will not be going back. Also if you're vegan, don't even bother.
