The last time I dined here was before the pandemic so it was nice to come back and see that the restaurant is taking the necessary safety precautions like distancing tables and having staff wear masks. It was also very easy to make a reservation online. The servers here are always very attentive, friendly and efficient. The food is fresh and tasty but depending on the dish, specifically the pasta options, the portion seems a little small. (I wouldn't go as far to say that any of the pasta portions are generous). The one thing I feel this restaurant is missing (compared to other Italian restaurants with menus in the same price point) is complimentary bread, especially since all of the pasta dishes are $19+. Nevertheless, for how convenient the location of this restaurant is and for its pleasant ambience, I will most likely be coming back in the future.

We were celebrating and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. I was impressed with the food quality and surprisingly pleased by how much the photos used in the online menu looked exactly like what was served. Our server was friendly and the manger is a delight! I’ll be making my way back soon. Keep up the great work and thank you!

Everything was delicious. We took family from out of town who enjoyed it very much. Everyone had something different. A pasta, chicken parmigiana, breakfast brunch entree and a prosciutto goat fig pizza. Heaven.
Service was superb. We did make a reservation first.

Really enjoyed their pasta with short rib, and their desert. Overall had a great experience, I would advise to sit indoors, has a much better vice than being outside next to the shoppers at the mall.

This was our first time back to eat indoors. The restaurant did a great job of seating and keeping distance between tables and kept all the doors open for added fresh air flow. The servers and staff were welcoming and did a great job. The food- if you have been to a North Italia then you know- if you haven't this is your calling to go. The food is always amazing, fresh and cooked to perfection.

I had a delightful lunch on the outside patio, meatball appetizer was excellent. We all had salads which were very good, and the an excellent dessert and coffee. Great experience, service was a little slow, but at least you weren't being rushed.

Server was excellent and the food was good but the kitchen (and the floor manager) failed the server. At 4:30pm on a Saturday, when the restaurant was about 20% full, a ticket time of 35 minutes (per the runner) for salad and pasta dishes is poor. A comment to the runner and server caused the floor manager to appear with a laissez-faire attitude. To compound the issue, while guest heads were popping up and down like prairie dogs looking for service, management chose to distract the entire staff into a service meeting and beverage tasting on the floor. The server was kind enough to discount our appetizer off the bill Of course, I tipped on the total amount of the check (not the discounted amount).

Enjoyed our early dinner here, server was friendly if a bit slow. Food was good except for cheesy flatbread was far too salty. Enjoyed the fried calamari and roasted vegetable salad. Will try it again if opportunity comes up.
