The spaghetti don’t have any flavor
The first the fried seafood was very good
We ask the second was the especial of the day was shrimp and the spaghetti
The spaghetti was like you poured in water, and after you pour the sauce and don’t have any flavor
I neededto ask for the salt to pour a little flavor

The food was excellent. Very unique. Excellent cocktails as well. The service was very good. Our only complaint was that the lag between courses was long, so our meal took over two hours. If you don’t mind taking your time, then it’s worth the wait.

The food was very good but small portions and each item has to be purchased separately. The food was priced rather high. Service was good and the restaurant was pleasant. Not very kid friendly-no kid menu. Overall a great experience and not someplace I would return.

We had two different fishes. Both were excellent. The montepulciano wine was priced well and great. The expresso was amazing. We can’t wait to bring friends for a special night out.

The food, service, and atmosphere are typically very good. Lots of variety on the menu and very efficient service. On my recent visit, I was surprised and annoyed by a yapping dog INSIDE the restaurant. One might excuse this as a "support dog", but this was a table of three, not a lone dining situation. And, on this pleasant evening, outside dining was available.

Franco, owner, and staff did an excellent overall performance and included a few personal touches (such as Franco meeting us outside of the front door to welcome us & visiting our table a few times to ensure the food and service was fine). My 4 guests were impressed as well as my 90 year uncle, whose birthday we were celebrating. Franco and staff made us all feel very special! In addition, the food was exquisite (squisito in Italian!)
Bravo to Franco & Staff

We were there to celebrate our Anniversary, and first time at the restaurant. The whole experience was very underwhelming and only fair compared to other restaurants I have been to in the area.

The lunch menu was not overly extensive but the soup was excellent as was the pollo. Disappointed with the chocolate bread pudding. It was like chocolate mouse rather than bread pudding.

I'm Italian and fussy about Italian food. I like authentic Italian just like in Italy and that's exactly what you can get with the "classico" menu here from chef Antonio. The lasagna was superb. Beautiful bolognese sauce. Nice thin layers of pasta. Not too much cheese. Right amount of bechamel sauce. Just like most nonnas in ItLy make. The ravioli di burrata were also very good. I had them without the mint gremolata. The tiramisu is as authentic as it gets. Lady finger cookies in a large pan cut in squares.Though I suspect whipped cream was added here. Service excellent. Decor modern, white, clean, comfortable.

Went for food, which for Italian was a cut above the normal Pittsburgh Italian.
Nice ambiance
Thank you.

Excellent Authentic Italian pasta but I did like the fritto misto better when they put verdura in it . I especially enjoy speaking Italian to Franco who always is willing to speak to the clientele and very accommodating with the menu. Senti is a totally very pleasant experience!

Really an excellent experience. The ambiance is wonderful—cool modern understated elegance. Excellent cocktails. Creative modern takes on classic Italian dishes. 3 of the 4 of us had the gnocchi with duck confit which was very good although the gnocchi seemed a tiny bit tough. The Branzino was excellent. Fabulous tira misu. Would most definitely come here again.

Somewhat limited menu, but to be expected when preparing good food. Servings somewhat on small side compared to many other restaurants, but unless you like to overeat, this is a positive. Service was attentive and friendly.
