Very much enjoyed our late lunch/early dinner. The lemon Vinaigrette dressing on the arugula salad was delicious. Loved the meatballs, too.

We were celebrating a birthday and decided to try it but we weren't very impressed. super casual, no ambiance/decor. The octopus carpaccio appetizer was amazing. The homemade pasta quality was very good. The sauces on the Gnocchi and cavatelli with squid ragu were too salty. The Polipetti Affogati was tasty and tender but the however considering it is an entree, the portion was too small. It was served only with 2 slices of bread. Meatballs were good but didn't come with anything, I find this odd. Both of those entrees mentioned should have come with pasta. The menu is extremely limited. Maybe it's an ok neighborhood place for a weeknight.

I am a matchmaker, and I made this reservation on behalf of a client of mine. She was running late and the restaurant staff were very accommodating and helpful with relaying the information to her date. Both diners said the neighborhood was really cute, the ambiance of the restaurant was excellent for date night, and the food was top notch. I will absolutely send future clients here for dates.

I never write reviews and that I’m writing one now is a testament to this restaurant. Stunning decor, super friendly staff, between 3 people we ordered 6 dishes and I can’t decide what was the best. Will absolutely go back- you will not regret eating here!

Our order was sour, off or expired (burrata). We have had this dish in many restaurants and have never returned food but in this case we returned it. No big deal...

Then the chef came out to argue with us, telling us we are “wrong” and that it’s imported from Italy. We said no problem but there are many opportunities for dairy imported from Italy to go bad. He made it a much bigger deal than it needed to be.

The rest of the food was ok (nothing amazing) and we waited over 20 minutes to get the bill. They tried to charge us for the dish we returned. No apology, no humility.

I wouldn’t come back.

We weren't sure what to expect from a restaurant that aspires to evoke a feel of the Amalfi Coast--ambitious, to say the least. They delivered. The food was excellent! We loved the risotto, the spaghetti with zucchini and the baby octopus. It was BYOB but a liquor license was forthcoming. I look forward to going back.
