    Usually a great meal so this review based on what we ordered . The black pasta with lobster was excellent . The halibut was over cooked and flavorless though the purée accompanied was excellent and saved the dish . The octopus ceviche was good but there are likely better appetizers . The bread is amazing and the fact that it is byb is a huge plus . Overall considering we paid 125 dollars plus for three dishes I feel the rating was appropriate

    The entire experience was excellent. Our server Perri was very helpful, informative and extremely approachable. Food wise our party enjoyed the brussels caesar, agnolotti and octopus carpaccio as appetizers, then the lobster pasta and pork chops for dinners. The food was exceptional. For dessert we ordered one of everything, the zeppole's were the best of the bunch. 10 out of 10 experience.

    Food and menu is always top notch. It’s a smallish place and the tables are a bit close to each other, so the noise level is slightly higher than you would expect. Nonetheless, I would strongly recommend dining here!

    It was nice overall. The bread and pasta are amazing. We got the pork chop as an entree and something was just off about it but it was ok. The chocolate torta was delicious and the zepollis were more of a sugar donut than actual zepollis but they were still good.

    I wasn't prepared for the menu at all. It was very limited and I guess I am just too traditional. Takes a unique palate to get the full apprciation of the preparation of menu items.

    Small Chef/Owner restaurant featuring an innovative menu. A good selection of specialty pastas and seafood. BYOB. The space is open, small and can get loud. Expect to spend $50pp including tax and tip. Would recommend.

    The service is great from the start. The entire staff works together like a well oiled machine, everyone chipping in and helping. All very friendly as well. The food is some of the best I’ve had around. The pasta dishes are always on point. It’s worth going back to try all the fresh seasonal items before the menus change.
