Good food but took a long time to be served. Lots of lag time between ordering and food actually arriving. For the price, service was ok but nothing to write home about. A very different experience than when I visited years ago.

So i planned a reservation for my birthday and it was everything that i hoped it would be. The food was AMAZING. LOVED the fried calamri app. The drinks here were all very tasty however they all felt “virgin” but i wasnt expecting anything too crazy. I give this restaurant 5 stars because they definitely deserve it however, i had a group of 5 people and the waiters (all of them) kept going out their way to only ask questions and bring up things to my caucasian friend as the rest of the table were women of color. It felt a lil off but we didnt let it ruin the night.

You have to try "the Meatball"!!!
We had the truffle gnocchi and the spaghetti carbonara as well which were to die for. The 20 layer cake could feed 3 people easily!!
Jose was an amazing waiter as well as the entire staff that helped us!
We will be going back.

Food and drinks were great. Our waiter Leo was great. What I did not appreciate is how long it took to be seated by the hostess and how sh seated groups in close proximity when there were so many empty tables.

Trendy, hip, and fun. Draws a diverse crowd from the young to mature. Great DJ that plays a mix of music. The place can get loud so not good for a quiet date or dinner. Large portion sizes of pasta! Could maybe share a plate between two! Drinks are strong and tasty. The service is fast and wait staff knows what drinks to suggest! Options for vegetarians and some pastas can be made vegan (ask them to not add cheese). They have plenty of seating for large group dinners.

The people watching was better than the food. I had a Caesar salad, which was good, the sirloin steak, which was over cooked and fatty, and not at all tasty or anything but a very plain boring over cooked steak. It came with a ton of truffle fries, the common way to try to make up for a poor piece of meat. Would’ve been nice to have some vegetables. The cheesecake was meh. It was advertised as a cheesecake with cherries, and it had a very minimal drizzle of some tasteless cherry sauce, and two tiny generic cherries. The drink Basilco was insanely expensive, but was very good. The restaurant itself was extremely loud, and seem to be more of a party spot than a fine dining establishment.

Staff is amazing & very attentive. The ambience was great, music playing in the background which was nice. The food was good just a little heavy on the salt. Overall, I had a great experience and everything was amazing. If your bringing your own cake they charge a extra 25.00 to slide your cake.

Everything about the dining experience was great. The host was welcoming and friendly. The music was just right, the service impeccable (Jose was Our waiter). To top it off the food was delicious from Drinks, appetizers to entrees. Everything was seasoned well, it was an explosion of flavor. Hats off to the chef.
10/10 would recommend and my mom and I would return.
