    Food is very salty - specifically the pastas. Lives up to their name I guess.

    The bread appetizer was under baked and doughy. The entrees were served in plastic bowls. For the price of the meal I was expecting more than plastic. It was difficult to eat the large ravioli from a bowl since they needed cutting and it was almost impossible to do that in the bowl they were served in.

    Everything our group tried was excellent! The pasta is made from scratch and you can tell the difference.

    Place was empty on a Saturday night - 2 other tables. Took 58 minutes to get out dinner once we ordered. Food was mediocre at best. Sauce was very spicy. No liquor license . Will not go back anytime soon.

    I really enjoyed the evening. Shrimp gnocchi was outstanding. I like bringing my own wine, $10 corkage fee was acceptable. Only notable issue was waiter/kitchen not understanding that the pasta course comes before the entrees. Tried to serve everything at once. I doubt they remade the entrees as they stated they would, (unasked). I enjoyed mine, but the other one seemed a bit “over cooked”. Nothing that would keep me from returning. Decor is meh. Didn’t take away from our night out. It’s more cafeteria than fine dining in ambiance. I could not tell if it was trying to be a pizza parlor with great food. Or a high end restaurant that scrimped on the decor to put the money in the kitchen and food. Highly recommend for a casual night out.

    Very disappointed. We went at 5 pm on a Saturday. They were already out of meatballs although there were only ten oh other tables with diners. Wife and I both ordered different salads. Both were missing advertised ingredients. Pizza was extremely average. Service was good though.

    Restaurant wasn't busy at all when we arrived and our server suggested we order right away before other reservations arrived. We waited for over an hour with excuses about why the dinner was taking so long. Ended up leaving without ever receiving our ordered meals. No compensation or any other accommodations were ever offered.

    Overall it was a good experience. They did not have a liquor license so they encouraged us to go get wine at a local store which we did. Unfortunately, they charged us a corkage fee of 10 dollars for each bottle.

    This new(er) restaurant offered good food, but very poor service. From the start, it was evident they were struggling to keep up. Our waitress was not attentive and seemed very inexperienced. Dinner for our family of four took 2.5 hours from start to finish - that was ridiculous. There were 20-minute gaps between apps/salads/entrees. A couple of the dishes served were missing key ingredients.
