    This was our first visit. As soon as you walk in, the striking staircase and architectural detail make you take notice. The dining room is beautiful! The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was delicious from start to finish and our server was so nice and very accommodating . Can’t wait to visit again. A rare find!

    We have been here many times. It seems to be getting more attention. Food and Service were Very good as usual. Slight problem with glass of red wine - but they look it back and replaced. Would have rated it a 5 overall but, it was COLD in the dining area. Heat was adjusted after a few complaints, it was warm in the bar area. We will definitely be back!

    The mushroom risotto and penne with eggplant was excellent. Service was very good. However, the noise level is quite loud. Not sure what they can do about it.

    New Years Eve and I took mom for a well deserved dinner out to start the New Year off right after challenges during holiday season. Reservation was timely, food was delicious, service was exceptional with Dayana and music was rocking upstairs where people went for some dancing the evening away. Loved it!!!

    the food was ok. They were out of braciole that 2 people ordered (it was a 6 o'clock reservation??) my carbonara was dry. The only thing that was really good was the eggplant. The ceasar was a bit dry.

    Food was good, calamari was a little salty. Parking was completely full yet the restaurant was not that busy. Hard to park across the street, short walking distance. I will recommend this restaurant they have some nice stuff on the menu.

    Food and service were very good. The noise level was quite high even with only 3 tables of 10 or so and a few smaller tables (the room had some empty tables). It was hard to hear people talking at our own table.

    All four of us enjoyed this lovely rest. It was our first time and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious and our server was perfect. The whole rest had a warm feeling to it. We did think the noise level was way toooooo loud but of course that depends on who is dining. Also the lot behind the rest was abit dark so perhaps more lighting would help in avoiding and falls in the lot.

    Nice place, food was good quality. Service was a bit slow and lacking in certain areas. The waitstaff spoke so softly and it was difficult to hear the specials due to the noise in the place on an early Saturday evening. Bar was too slow to keep up with the drinks for the table and the staff though good on picking up plates and flatware after use consistently forgot to fill water glasses. Food was good, portion were fine and all was of good quality. I would come back.

    Overall, great experience. Wonderful ambience, but the music was a bit too loud, and frankly, unnecessary. Wait person seemed new. Although very nice, she kept asking us for orders before we had a chance to look at menus, both drink and food.

    I have nothing negative to say about my first visit to this restaurant. The place is immaculate. The service is on point. The food was delicious. The bruschetta was out of this world! One of the owners was on premises, and even visited the table with our dessert. It’s a well-run establishment that I would recommend and go back to in a minute.
