    The service was excellent starting with the fact we were running late and they still let us be seated when we arrived. Our server was very friendly and informative of different menu options. Food was great and portions were very good size. We will be back again!

    A small jewel where the food and service is excellent. The noise-level can at times be jarring to the point of being deafening. Also, the up charge for sharing plates is unnecessary and counterproductive inasmuch as any cost benefit derived by the restaurant is likely to be more than offset by the impression given that yet another charge is being added to my restaurant bill.

    Great selection of standard Italian fare with attentive service. This is a relatively small space, and should you require a quieter section, ask for the tables away from the bar side. Looks like a local favorite, and we will most likely return.

    We are new to the area, and we moved from Chicago and we've had a hard time locating amazing italian restaurants!! Well, we just found it!! Outstanding is all I have to say.. from the service to the food!! Our waiter (Bruno) was fantastic and he was very knowledgable with the entire menu and making suggestions. He was spot on!! Thank you, we'll be back!

    Great food, but very loud and somewhat claustrophobic seating (in front portion of restaurant facing the parking lot). Service was very good but bread was removed from table too early and plates were removed without asking if we would like to take uneaten food home.

    The best neighborhood gem in Charlotte. From the minute you walk in, you are graciously greeted.... the staff tries hard to accommodate all of your seating requests. They never rush you, they want you to have a drink, relax, visit with your dining partners, and when you are ready to order, they are right there. The menu has a great variety for all, my favorite is the varied fish specials every night. But don't miss out on the pasta dishes too! I have dined with just one guest and as many as 15 in our party...they never miss a beat! One of our favorite restaurants to just have a wonderful meal, relax and enjoy!

    Waitress had to be asked 4 times to refill drinks and she still did not . I finally asked someone else. The waiter at the table behin us turned around to pop the cork on a bottle and it was directly behind me and the wine /or champagne for in my arm. Our waitress came to fill our water glasses and spilled on me , my friend and on my purse. The hostess was taking to a waiter and ignored us while we stood there was ting for them to acknowledge our arrival. Terrible , terrible wait staff experience. Food amazing, atmosphere amazing !
