                                                    Food was delicious. Service was great. Can’t judge it by the outside, because it’s adorable inside. The people were wonderful. I would highly recommend Karen my only slight criticism would be, I was dying for pasta and all the past had a queen size. Would you like to light sauce pasta dish so

                                                    Had the mussels apps, best mussels ever. The Cod was a little fishy but not happy I paid an extra 4% by using my credit card. Maybe split that fee, 50% me, 50% the restaurant. Just a suggestion.

                                                    Thank you for dining with us Rich. I waited as long as I could as almost everywhere I go this is happening. It is 3.75% there is obviously zero fee with a cash payment. Just a different world we live in now with food cost and many other expenses. Best regards Robert.

                                                    What an experience. Robert and his staff accommodated our group and it was by far one of the most pleasurable experiences I have had eating out. Professional, courteous and attentive. Every table was full so I would highly recommend a reservation. 5 star all around. Highly recommended.

                                                    For the price, the pasta was not great. Our resi was for outdoor dining. I didn’t realize that meant we’d be sitting on the sidewalk. It was not a pleasant meal at all. We won’t return. Service was spectacular though.

                                                    We really enjoy this restaurant. It’s very accommodating with two family members that have to eat gluten-free. All the food is amazing and The wait staff is very attentive . It is really one of our favorite places.

                                                    Amazing food and service. I’ve been here several times and it never disappoints. Most of the menu is gluten free and you wouldn’t even really know it because everything tastes delicious. They had many specials for both appetizers and entrees. The crab cakes and Arctic char were delicious.

                                                    The dishes were delicious, the service was solid albeit rushed and the ambience was good for this strip mall, Italian BYOB. I had heard wonderful things and seen fabulous photos of Roberts creations, so we tried it out. The menu is predominantly Italian, with mainly traditional plates and sides. However, the Specials were clever twists on classics such as a breaded pork chop parmesan with vodka sauce, veal saltimbuca, chilled seafood salad and a short ribs with homemade chip appetizer… everything was delicious and bursting with flavor.

                                                    Good food, service, noisy beyond belief, seated below an AC vent and draft was very uncomfortable. Host came over to ask how we liked "special table" . Food was good, prices high but quantity made up for some of that. Disparity on dessert portions. We ordered delicious cheesecake and portion was half the size of the same dish at adjacent table
