    Not very crowded for a Saturday night, so service was pretty good. However, my food arrived barely warm. Server said she would have them remake it, but all the kitchen did was heat it in the microwave to boiling. Boiling shrimp alfredo makes the pasta gummy and the shrimp like rubber. It was not enjoyable and we will not be back. Also didn't appreciate the surprise of a $2.00 inflation fee!!!

    My first time dining there. Service was friendly and attentive. Rosemary bread was great, but then the food went downhill. Appetizer calamari was undercooked, entree “Moma Trio” was very bland. I have no intention of eating there again

    The restaurant seemed dirty. When I walked in I noticed the entry rug was filthy. The bathroom was out of hand towels and toilet paper. The bar was close due to lack of help. I was extremely disappointed that they did not offer gluten free pasta in this day and age. I hope this restaurant does not close but it got the feeling that it might.

    Beautiful restaurant great service and great ambiance whatever the food was not great. I ordered the seafood ravioli which was mediocre, the shrimp tasted like store-bought frozen shrimp. I also ordered the chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream I guess I was expecting something different because the cake again tasted like a store-bought cake I could get myself at ralphs.

    I love going here normally. But this visit fell short of what I expected. food came out at different times all of it and we had four in our party. Mine was the last one to come out 15 minutes later and the excuse given was someone took mine. No offer to adjust or give a dessert. The waitress seemed very annoyed, just a rollover of the table across who asked alot of questions, we had to ask for water everytime because she was so distracted. Why I don't know, it was Easter Evening about 5:30 not busy at all. so needless to say i wasn't happy with my visit at all.

    The food was very good, the service from our server was poor made up for by the single server who was trying to help all of the tables. We had finished our appetizers before we even got bread, and drinks (water) took over 10 mins. We would go again, but maybe eat a snack first.

    Went here for Sunday lunch. Menu was very limited apparently due to covid. No pizza at an Italian restaurant? Service was good, but the restaurant was half empty so it should be. Overpriced and they also added $2.00 to the bill for “macroeconomic pressure”. Won’t go there again until they get a full menu.

    While waiting at the bar for our table the bartender was extremely rude to his coworkers. He also used profanity in front of patrons multiple times. I don’t mind so much but my girlfriend was pretty offended. Also, he seemed to be out of almost every ingredient for every drink that she wanted to order.

    Not that it was there fault but lights went completely off yet they served me my parmesano chicken salad with cold chicken and didn’t tell me they never got a chance to warm it up. They put dressing on it a lot and I asked for no dressing and I still got charged full bill while eating in dark , had cold chicken (didn’t eat ) and I felt they could’ve asked me before serving me that cold food if I wanted it.
