Chicken fettuccini was cold at the bottom and the sauce watery. The flourless chocolate cake is misrepresented as it is a molten lava cake shaped like a cupcake.

Our first time dining here and was a little tricky to spot, since the entrance is at the back of building and signage is small. We had a table on the very pleasant patio. The margherita pizza was an excellent starter to share with my husband and a good value at the $10 happy hour pricing. The pasta dishes were also very tasty, although I could have used some crusty bread to soak up the broth in the linguini with clams. Wine list has a good selection of wines by the glass, as well as a pricey reserve list of bottles. Servers were very pleasant and helpful.

The food was pretty good, but not worth the total value. Service was a bit slow with drinks and removing plates and glassware. Overall it was a nice experience still.

Always enjoy Publicco but the timing of the service was off. We had only had our salads for a few minutes when the entrees came to the table. By the time we were finished with our salads the entrees were cold.

Atmosphere was perfect. Service great and attentive without being intrusive. Food was a 9.5 on a scale of 10. No reason for not giving it a 10. I just don’t believe in perfection.

This was our second visit to Pubblico. Having had a fantastic experience the first time, this visit topped even that "wow" evening. Everything I've had has been absolutely delicious.The mussels appetizer was fresh and flavorful, its sauce aromatic and complex. I ordered cioppino as my main course and it was above and beyond. No mere stew with a few random bits of seafood floating in a sea of stock, the ingredients towered above the broth and delectable homemade fettuccine, every bite a revelation. Try as I might I could only eat half of my portion, and am enjoying the remainder for dinner tonight. Did I mention that Wednesdays are Wine Night at Pubblico? every wine on the menu is $20 a bottle. The ambience is comfortable, with lighting and music at comfortable levels, and the service is friendly and knowledgeable. For dessert, have the bread pudding! Best I've had anywhere. My gf and I will be making Pubblico our regular Wednesday hang for sure.

We waited over 30 minutes after being seated to get service . Our entrees were over cooked and rushed to make up for wait . In the this past this restaurant has been a dining experience . No longer is that true . Why serve fish on a menu if you don’t know to prepare it is my question . Very disappointed to say the least

Shocked to find staff not wearing masks. Cocktails and wines were on the expensive side. Shared an Arugula salad as a starter. Good. Mussels were very good. The lobster ravioli was outstanding. Nice selection of desserts.

My husband and I had a wonderful anniversary dinner. Service was prompt, food was delicious, especially the truffle oiled Brussel sprouts! Shem and Sarahi, the bartenders were absolutely amazing! Very prompt, had wonderful recommendations on wine, and very personable. We will be going back for sure because of the service recieved.

We were visiting from out of town and found this gem. I am a picky eater and would've eaten anything on the menu. Our waiter was outgoing and helpful when deciding what to order. Although the restaurant was busy we never felt rushed and the food was perfect. I would recommend making a reservation.

It take an exceptional dining experience for me to take the time to come on and write a review, but that’s what we just had at Pubblico. The food was excellent - had the shrimp scampi appetizer and calamari and both were delicious. The scampi came with bread for dipping in the sauce and when the busboy noticed that we had sauce but no bread left, he asked if we wanted more bread. He was also great with water refills and keeping the table clear. For dinner, we had the lobster ravioli, ciopino, linguine with clams, and seafood linguine, and all were delicious. The pasta is house made and all the seafood was excellent. I also had the house made sangria, and it was quite fruity and fresh. Finally, overall, the service was just great. It just felt comfortable and welcoming. A great dining experience!

This was our first time dining at Pubblico Italian Eatery and it was great. Just make sure you turn on the adjacent street and go to the back to park and enter. The menu has a wide variety of entrees and is reasonably priced. I had the chicken parmesan and my daughter had the chicken fettuccine. Both were delicious and the portions were large.
