Nice spot overall, but felt it was overpriced for what you get. Not bad, but not great.

Although I rated the noise level as energetic, nearly all of it came from a table of five women who were drinking and shrieking at every joke. The food was excellent, and the service outstanding. We have been to some restaurants recently where poor swervice has been blamed on short staffing. Here all of the staff cooperated so that patrons had someone come when needed, while the maitre d' kept tabs on everything. Certainly a place to go back to.

The eggplant parmesan was the best I have ever had--perfect combination well-fried eggplant with just the right amount of sauce and cheese, served with a small side of spaghetti--I hope it becomes a staple on the menu!

It seems they’ve changed wait staff in the few months or maybe they were just off that night. No orders were wrong or forgotten but drinks and refills or water/non alcoholic did take some time.

Having dined here before we knew just about everything we wanted to order. However maybe since we did we weren’t told any specials etc. I was convinced our server was a back server or supporting server since they never even told us their name or welcome in etc.

However, the food and ambience cannot be beat. We will be back. Service can be polished up a bit to truly elevate the experience.

Very slow service even tho the restaurant was not crowded. But our server was very helpful in finding us a suitable and moderately priced wine.
Specifics about food : excellent salads can’t go wrong with arugula. And wonderful desserts. Classic tiramisu, first rate gelatos and a bombolino That could have served more than one. In fact, all servings were very ample. What was disappointing were grotto misto. Overcooked and not hot and crisp.

We had a nice dinner here last night, very tasty. We would go back The hostess/manger, Katerena, was great, called ahead of time to improve the reservation we found on open table.

The menu on Open Table, upon which we based our decision, both for tastes and cost, was substantially different from the menus presented at the restaurant. The cost were more when in the restaurant.

The accoustics in the front room upstairs need much improvement, we were a table of six and could not hear across the table, the adjacent table was having a good time.

When asked for recommendations, the server did not hesitate to suggest the most expensive items.

But my main negative issue was the other manager, a gentleman, that as 18 or so people, 3 tables, were enjoying the end of dinner, ASKED all to leave so he could sent the staff home. Very bizarre

Cute space, friendly service, great drinks. I’d avoid the food though. Polipo and Meatballs were very over cooked. The gnocchi’s presentation was gross, and it was also over cooked. Good place for a drink, while on the way somewhere else.

We loved this restaurant before the pandemic. This was the first time we went in 1.5 years. The menu changed which was expected, and I believe they have added pizza from my recollection of the previous menu. The service wasn’t great. My husband got the wrong appetizer and entree, which they quickly exhanged to their credit. I kept getting the feeling that there was new ownership. Their little market below the restaurant did not seem to offer the same wealth of choices as before. The food was good and a nice option for the Palisades. We will likely try it again but won’t be running back as we did before.
