Service was very slow- took 20 minutes for our drink order and then another 15 minutes to get our drinks and the restaurant was not that crowded. Usually service is great!

Come here all the time. Love the atmosphere. The outside has great heaters and allows for outside dining almost all year except for maybe January! The staff is friendly and attentive. The food is great. Highly recommend it.

Every dish is wonderful. Try the meatball appetizer and calamari! Had the
salmon for main dish and loved it. Lamb special was the
winner. Service is attentive and extremely friendly. Ambience is modern and fresh.
Great place to spend Saturday night with family or
friends.

Excellent overall experience. Food, cocktails, service were all top notch. Bonus was live music- amazing acoustic guitar / singer. This was my first time here and I look forward to returning again when I can sit outside there as well. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

Very nice neighborhood restaurant with several different dining options: indoor (tables or booths), indoor (high tables, near bar area), or outdoor (sheltered, heated). Food was very good and the service was outstanding. Very enjoyable evening out.

Food was delicious. The calamari appetizer was perfectly cooked, not the least bit rubbery. It could have been a little spicier though. The mushroom soup was very good as well, would have been better with the addition of some cream as it was very thin. Chicken Martini was well prepared as was the Short Rib pasta, however the pasta needed more cheese. Service was spot on! Chicken dish was $30, pricey for chicken IMHO.

We were seated inside near an open door which allowed me to feel comfortable during COVID. The service was exemplary and the food was delicious. I had a Caesar Salad and Linguine with white clam sauce. I will be back again soon!

Love this restaurant and the staff. We visit as often as we can (sometimes twice a week) for great food and drinks. The servers are friendly and feel like family. If you want a delicious meal, this is the place for you. Make sure you leave yourself some time, as food service is sometimes slow ** to allow you time to eat at a comfortable pace so you don't feel rushed.
