Gavi's food and service were great as usual. We are regulars. BUT, I found a problem with Open Table app.

My 97 yr old mother-in-law decided she wanted to eat there at 7:45 PM. I immediately went to Open Table to book a reservation on a FRIDAY NIGHT. The only indicated time available was 8:15PM. This worked for us as we live 10 in away and are regulars. You application indicated to me that the restaurant was very busy and almost booked up. Upon arriving early for our 8:15 PM reservation, I noticed that the restaurant was less than half full. During the course of our dining, the empty tables were NOT occupied. It occurred to me that your app and possibly others had an error that is costing the restaurant business.

I know many people that use Open Table JUST to check restaurant availability. I notified the owner and she comped our desert. She said she would call you. Please resolve this matter as this great restaurant does not deserve such loss of business!

You food was excellent as well as your service. The amount was huge!! Way too much. Perhaps you wanted to have your guests to bring what was not eaten home. All in all, it was an excellent meal!

The meal was good but not excellent. The waiter didn’t take correctly the order. As a result, one of the dishes had to be redone and everyone was waiting for the person with redone dish to finish it. As a compensation for waiting, the waiter was good enough to offer his apologies and 1/2 liter of their house wine. Everyone was polite. Overall we had to wait a lot spending over 2 hours in the restaurant.

Great selection of traditional Italian favorites, amazing sauces!
Table was ready for us, party of 6, no wait, a big deal for me. Well managed,may be a little on the loud side for sensitive souls.Outdoor option, our favorite place for special occasions. Always a great meal.Server was very knowledgeable about the menu. Try the daily specials, you cannot go wrong.Full bar, TV.

Ate outside. The servicer was fine but the WAIT for food was unexceptable. They had several large parties inside and , obviously, could not handle all the food requests in a timely manner. VERY frustrating. Food, itself, as excellent but the time we had to wait to get it was long. If you go here, make sure they can accomodate you -- our party was just 4 but the larger groups overwhelmed the kitchen.

After being seated at 6:00 it was quiet for about 15 minutes by which time it became extremely noisy and stayed that way until we left at 7:30. The service was slow and the food was so so. The best part of the meal was the cannoli.

The waitress was great and tried very hard but the bartender had it in for her. The food came before the celebratory cocktails. The food was wonderful and way more that we could eat. The ambiance is old family comfort and it was.

They are obviously,like most restaurants, having trouble finding enough help. That said, our waiter was excellent. The food was good, portions almost too generous, overall our meal was good. The noise level was horrible - too loud to visit across the table. We won’t be going back if we are hoping to talk to our dinner companions

Food was excellent. Waiter was not good. Brought out our appetizer with dinner, not before. Got the drink order wrong, we were charged for the wrong drink order. The owner was VERY apologetic and attempted to make it right. I would definitely go back, grr we t a different waiter!!

Because of hearing impairment we elected to sit outdoors where it was actually rather warm, but at least we could converse. Our server, Francisco, explained some of the specials and kindly brought us not only two carafes of chilled water but also a large glass of ice. The food was outstanding and we were glad we could bring some home to enjoy for another meal. We will definitely be going back.
