The food was delicious, the wait staff was friendly, super attentive, and rectified the one small mistake quickly. My only feedback would be to please provide more room between the tables. My husband and I felt very cramped, like the aisle seat of an airplane. Constantly having to move our elbows in to avoid being hit by those constantly passing by.

Food was to die for! Only complaint is they CRAM you in there. The tables are so close together, it makes it a bit uncomfortable. Outside of that, wonderful decor and ambiance. Would eat there again for sure.

The food was very good and service attentive. We had the Gamberoni e Broccoli and Gnocchi al Brivido. The gamberoni was a mountain of food and very flavorful. The gnocchi was heavy on the pesto which was enjoyable. The burrata plate was very large and fresh as well. We would have dinner here again.

Great service and the food is out of this world. Had the mushroom risotto which was full of different mushrooms and totally delicious.

One small miss, the dining rooms in the back of the restaurant are extremely loud and seems to echo. Please don't misunderstand, this restaurant is awesome, just a little loud.

They jam people in there to tightly.
Unless you have a party of four you will be jammed up against others.

A little drafty near front. The service was a little slow and we had to ask for bread when table next to us sat after us got it. Food was delicious and quaint environment was nice.

Excellent service and delicious food! Found a reservation at the time we were looking for and didn’t know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised. Generous portions, nice menu with vegetarian options. We will definitely be back.

This was a great dinner and the service was good. It was very loud in the restaurant which doesn’t bother me at all but it may be too loud for others - I just felt like it was part of the ambience. After dinner we ordered coffee which was lukewarm and they brought us new coffee which they gave to us in the house for waiting. It was much appreciated and part of my good review.

The food and service were outstanding. Every person at our table had a special request (for example, half orders of pasta, or dishes without cheese or with a substitute type of pasta). All our requests were granted cheerfully and served in good time and with no errors. We lingered outside for a perfect evening and never felt rushed.

I was expecting something better due to the reviews I read, however I think it is overrated. Good but not outstanding.

The pistachio ice cream was amazing.
