The staff were pleasant, attentive and accommodating. The food came out in a reasonable time and was delicious. The prices are a little high but the food and experience are both a nice treat. Lots of vegan and GF options as well which is a huge bonus.

We were seated next to a family with young, unruly children…
We were offered the option to move but we were basically the only ones in the restaurant at that point so it would have looked really bad.
The chicken in the chicken parm was flattened and dry.
The garlic bread was drowning in garlic…we had to scrape most of it off to eat it.

This was the worst Italian dinner I ever had. Pasta was overcooked and mushy. Bolognese was tomatoey with no meat flavor. Pesto Genovese flat. Wine was good! Service good. I did not eat my dinner. A lot of money for crap.

Cesser salad, focaccia, papardelle Bolognese, lasagne - everything was fantastic and just delicious. Service was prompt and very pleasant, checking in on our table just enough. Prices are escalating here as in many restaurants - so eating out will be less frequent. Location is excellent, not overly congested and street parking is easy to find OR you can always use the lot right across the street

Had the Fried Mozzarella, spaghetti and meatballs, and Pesto pasta. The mozzarella was really good with 8 pieces in the order. The spaghetti and meatballs were generous portioned with 2 big meatballs. Nothing spectacular but good solid pasta. The pesto pasta was nearly flavorless. Sadly we make it better at home with pesto from the jar.
Overall average Italian food.
The ambiance was very good and classy. Better than average
