    This place has serious potential, but it’s location makes it borderline impossible to enjoy dinner. The floor shakes with every passing car. Your water shakes in the glass and sometimes so much you can’t hear.

    Everybody really enjoyed their dinners, we made sure that each of us got something different. I think some items are overpriced ($7.50 for a basket of garlic bread), but I understand the price of everything is going up. Our server was delightful and very attentive.

    Friendly and knowledgeable wait staff. Restaurant was nearly deserted, which made it comfortable to be dining out with low fear of Covid. Noise level also very low. Food was as good as I remembered.

    Our party of six, 3 couples, enjoyed their meals. Our waiter was perfect- knew the menu and wines/cocktails well, also could suggest-when asked, what would be a good choice. I had made the reservations and hoped the food was still delicious as before Covid. The dinner was great, I heard no regreats, only compliments on what people ordered.

    Our server was great and the food very good (although the gluten-free pasta was disappointing). We were, however, seated right by a curtain, behind which there was a private party. It became so loud we could not have a conversation, and people kept bumping us through the curtain. I suggest you not seat people so close.

    All the pasta is excellent. It will be a challenge to narrow down the choice! I wouldn't go there for a steak, but they have them. Other items like Scalapine, look like excellent choices. The desserts are what you would expect at an Italian cuisine and deliver with yet again many choices to be made.

    Beautiful restaurant with really great service. Unfortunately, the food was a big miss. It was both heavy and lacking flavor. Also left us feeling pretty sick. I do recommend the fried mozzarella, though.

    Sadly, it seems that the quality of the food has gone down. My eggplant was tough to chew, and the sauce seemed over salty. My husband’s Chicken Masala was bland and the pesto sauce was extra thick and missing a cheese content and salt. We used to get better food in the past.

    I had the house salad and pappardelle bolognese. Both were delicious and exactly what I was craving. The bolognese sauce was meaty and traditional — just like mama would make.

    Had a great meal! Everything was super fresh and tasty. The menu has all the Italian classics you would expect! I had the veal parmigiana, and honestly some of the best I’ve ever had (and I’ve had quite a few over the years!) Couple that with a side of pasta delicious garlic bread and some well-priced red wine, and I could not have been happier! Not fancy or trendy, but highly recommended! I’ll be back!

    Food was excellent and pleasantly presented. Served hot but not scalding. I had requested a booth but none were available. What impressed me was the maître d’hôtel who obviously had read my request and said they had a table by the window instead of a booth. Great service! Great waitstaff - professional, friendly and engaging but not overbearing. Will return again soon. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.
