Great atmosphere and Martino is an amazing host. We had a large group which made it difficult for 1 waiter to manage but great job all round and very good food.

Has reservations on a Friday at 6:30 and when we arrived, we were the only ones in the dining area. I was pretty worried but we were already there and hungry. The food was fantastic! I had the pertale sole which came with garlic mashed potatoes and thin string beans. My partner got a meat pizza which was also very good. Our server wasn’t outstanding but in his defense, he was new. They bring awesome chewy and crusty bread before your meal but no one told us about the dispenser of oil and balsamic vinegar on the table. The server really should have shown us what it was. We figured it out but the vinegar was inside the bottle and a little tricky. If we had to eat there again I wouldn’t have a problem but there are so many other places to try.

Food was delicious, not exceptional but reliable as always. Service was off their game--it took 20+ minutes to take our order. Will always return, though!

Second time we have been to this restaurant for lunch. Enjoyed our meals on both occasions. A bit pricey, but well worth it. Would definitely go back.
