We went for our anniversary and had a wonderful time. Bring that this was our 1st visit we didn’t know what to expect. My husband had the goat cheese salad and the pasta with short ribs. Both were very good. I had oysters which were very fresh and the halibut special which was fantastic. Overall, great food and great service. Thank you. We will be back!

We love your restaurant. Outstanding, friendly, service and very good food. The only thing I'd LOVE to see are candles on the tables at night. It would add SO much ambiance to the entire room. The room needs to glow. :))

This "farm to table" restaurant is one to be experienced and savored!! Once inside you would never know that it was part of a small strip of stores the ambiance is so warm and inviting - to come and sit awhile with family and friends. Then the food is AMAZING - so fresh and prepared just right!! The staff is friendly and helpful without being intrusive. This restaurant is a DEFINITE MUST EXPERIENCE!! Make it your NEXT food destination. Reservations are STRONGLY RECOMMENDED so as not to be disappointed about getting a table. Bon appetit!!

We arrived at 5:55 for our 6:00 reservation. We were seated immediately. and before I could even look at the menu, our waiter was telling us the specials. Dont' get me wrong the waiter was very nice, but I think he might be paid by how quickly he an turn over the tables. My group of friends were talking and such and the waiter came back like 4 times. Once we ordered the food came we ate it and we left, rather quickly so that your next seating would be able to eat. It was a very uncomfortable evening, one of our guests had indigestion from eating so fast. It is a shame since the food appeared to be cooked very well.

We went for our parents’ anniversary. It was a Wednesday night so only one other table was occupied. The restaurant is a hidden gem as you can’t tell how beautiful and romantic it is from the outside. The food was delicious. My very picky father enjoyed his food. So that’s a huge compliment. The only reason I took away a star for ambiance is that it’s small, so if it’s pack I can imagine the noise level being rowdy. The other table in the restaurant was a bit rambunctious so it gave me an idea of how the noise could escalate.

Our first time there. We LOVED this restaurant! The staff was friendly and attentive. Their use of iPads to show the dishes was smart and very helpful. Our goat cheese salad and fried calamari were very tasty. The calamari was cooked to perfection. Not chewy at all. If I have any criticism at all I would have preferred more balsamic glaze. My wife loved her crabmeat pasta dish and my pork chop was excellent! The portions were large. We both took home leftovers and had no room for desserts which were very tempting. Robert came around more than once to see if everything was to our liking. It was a Saturday but we never felt rushed. Can’t wait to go back!

If you are looking for an intimate dining experience then, I would recommend for you to go late or early as the dining room fills up. The food was outstanding.

So noisy you couldn’t hear yourself think! Food was a bit strange for Italian. Puttanesca sauce was lacking any zing.It was actually sweet, and contained no olives and no anchovy flavor. Bronzino was fair at best.

Not familiar with the area and selected RSK for a business luncheon due to location and past recommendations. Excellent ambience, food choices. Specials were shown on an iPad and explained in detail. Excellent service and food quality. Presentation of food was very eye pleasing. I would recommend to others interested in quality Italian fair. Moderately priced which made for a good value.

I love this restaurant. Food is very good and freshly made. A seasonal menu is such a great idea. Staff is friendly and very knowledgeable. The restaurant can get loud when fully packed and service was a bit slow but the food did
Not suffer. This is becoming my go to place.

This hidden gem is a must try! Everything is made fresh. Gluten free friends, they got your back with all entrees having gluten free pasta options and gluten free rolls! The owner, Robert, is very personable and always ensures his guests have a good time. His trusted staff (Jose and I believe Danielle) are there for your every need! Don’t forget to make a reservation to ensure you get a table! Lots of holiday parties happening here. Menu changes seasonally with a few favorites that always remain on menu. Specials are to die for and often have a fun twist on traditional italian cuisine! (Fall pumpkin ravioli was delightful, as is the Autumn pasta!) BYOB! Did I mention YUM??

Took daughter who is gluten and lactose free for first time this weekend. Food was amazing. Robert was awesome in explaining menu items. The steak with crab special was one of best filets I ever had was the response from my son. My daughter had the gnocchi and said best she had and took leftovers back to college which she never does. Great restaurant for anyone not just for the gluten free. can't wait to go back.
