Absolutely great food! Servers were rather unusual but fine. It was very very loud and the table was so big that we were unable to hear each other across the table. I’d return in a heartbeat.

Wow! We loved this restaurant. I had been there in the past, but it has been several years. They haven't missed a beat. The food was outstanding. The portions were generous but not indulgent. The food was fresh, and the flavors were amazing. We loved every bite. Service was excellent as well, such nice people. Enjoy!

The waiter was extremely knowledgeable and knew exactly how to accommodate a gluten free diet. When the non-gluten-free diner was given a gluten free pasta by mistake the error was quickly and graciously corrected. This meal was brunch but we are already making plans to go back for dinner.

Poor service and mediocre food. Waitress seemed like she hated her job and wanted to be anywhere but there. Food is extremely overrated. Wine is mostly Italian and restaurant is in Napa. Strange concept!

Food was excellent, but our experience was marred by indifferent and inattentive service. Our greeter seemed to be inconvenienced by our arrival even though we had a reservation. Our server was impatient during ordering and then never returned to check on us until dessert. As a party of six, we were charged an automatic gratuity, which might explain why no effort was made to assure a pleasant experience. This was a significant birthday celebration, which we mentioned, and ended up as a disappointment. The kitchen staff obviously cares a great deal, but no one else here does.

My reason for the average review is because I was expecting more short rib in my pasta and and short rib.

We shared the Quattro Formaggi pizza as a starter, which was plenty for the four of us. We all had different pastas, all very good. Portions are modest but more than adequate. Our table was near the open kitchen which cut down on the noise a bit. Attractive room with a good vibe.

Reservations were definitely a must for an indoor table on a Friday night. Also, be prepared...it gets really loud.

We had a good server but she was stressed out by the number of tables she had...we didn't see her often and she never mentioned the specials that we heard about from another server telling his table.

The little red gems salad was amazing...so good. They even sold out of it later in the evening. The fidei al telefono was very good...homemade pasta was perfectly cooked and the sauce delicious. The swordfish was a thin but large steak, and it had really good flavor. Finished with the apple bread pudding...so good.

Definitely a favorite.

We came for my friend’s 50th birthday and had a group of 6, including some elderly folks. The hostess was yelling information at us as we pulled out our chairs to sit. The chair noise was loud enough that I knew no one in our party would hear her, and when I gently asked her to hold on a sec til we got seated, she was obviously very offended and made me really uncomfortable. The food is very expensive for what it is, and the wines are terribly overpriced. The sommelier was not very knowledgeable, either. I would not go back and I would not recommend.
