    Do not sit outside as you will not be to hear anyone or have a meaningful Conversation as the redline train goes right underneath the sidewalk and the subway vents are right next to the table so you constantly hear the trains go by every 3 to 5 minutes. If the restaurant were more smartly run they would’ve put their outdoor tables on the side of the business that doesn’t have the train running underneath it. That being said the drinks were good the staff was great and the food was just very average especially for the price.

    We had been looking forward to trying Sulmona for quite a while and were sorely disappointed. It was packed at 6pm and extremely noisy and the windows were open, normally great, but the Red Line T trains were traveling directly underneath the restaurant adding to the noise. It took 20 min to get a martini from the bar. The apps we had were the winner, my main, the Bolognese was just so so and the pasta was greatly undercooked. Our waiter had too many tables but did his best and was very nice. We wont be back.

    Sulmona has a great vibe and aesthetic. The wait staff were friendly and prompt with their service. Unfortunately, that's the bulk of the good news. Our introduction to the restaurant was being greeted by a rude host, who seemed like they were potentially one of the managers. He also never gave us the specials menu, which we only realized existed after we ordered and saw other people being seated and getting a copy. We both ordered a pasta dish, the cacio e pepe, and were excited for the meal: neither of us ate more than half because it was inedible. It had absolutely no flavor, no salt, and no cheese. It was watered down and the only flavor was that of the noodle itself. We couldn't help but notice that several other tables had the same dish that they too left half uneaten. We were extremely disappointed and the experience -- with exception of a friendly and prompt waiter -- was quite lacking. Not worth the prices or the visit.

    We chose this place for a commencement celebration, based on on-line reviews. Although a reservation was made in advance, We were seated on top of a subway grate and couldn’t hear each other/the waiter or anyone else. The host was frankly mean, not willing to assist with guest’s needs. The salad ordered was small, although we were told it could be shared as a starter (it fed 2 people instead of 4). The food came in different times so we were left waiting to eat until the last order was delivered, 5-7 minutes later than the other mains. The only good choice on the menu is the pizza; pasta and meat dishes were something you would get at a chain restaurant. We won’t be going back.

    If you’re trying to drink a decent amount with your dinner don’t go here- the service takes awhile and they won’t let you have more than 4 drinks even when you’re eating. Overall though, really good food and cool ambiance.

    Wasn’t seated until more than 30 minutes after reservation. Multiple parties were subjected to the same wait. No apologies given. The host stand was irregularly staffed. Lacked a sense of attention or care. Very disappointed.

    Wife and I went here for a Sunday morning brunch. Food was terrific, and the ambiance inside was exactly what we were looking for. Next time I’m in the city I will make it a point to return for another meal.

    Service and pizza was ok, nothing amazing. I was pretty disappointed with the lamb skewers dish - tasted like gas (from a grill), unseasoned meat interspersed with gristle and fat that didn’t appear to be put to good use in the cooking process. I found the little Italian flags they stick in the dishes annoying instead of charming. Food came out quick even though it was a busy night, but it took a long time to get a check. Overall for the price point, I won’t be returning.

There was literally something for everyone. The bolognese is the best I’ve ever had, including in Italy ! Highly recommend !⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    We are a group of 4- 6 friends who dine out weekly. We all felt that Sulmona left us feeling like it could have been a better experience however, the Bolognese is very good! The order was not at all paced for a relaxing dinner experience. Our apps came out really quick which was nice and the arancini were great, as was the octopus HOWEVER, we were still enjoying apps when our dinner came out - way too soon - the Server did turn the dishes back to the kitchen to hold. The Carbonara was the most bland dish and I am a huge carbonara fan - I sent mine back and another tablemate generously layered his with salt and continued to eat it (he hates to send a dish back). The drinks were very good - really enjoyed the Sangria. We would likely return to give it another try, as we believe there are some good dishes to be had here - however, we would definitely ask for the courses to be appropriately spaced apart. At this current time and experience, I would give it a 3/4 stars - there's room for improvement.

    Great place for brunch - the menu includes typical brunch items like eggs Benedict and French toast but made in their style as well as pizza, paninis and burgers. There’s something for everyone and the food is very good. We had the porchetta panini, porchetta hash, eggs Benedict Italian farmer style and eggs Benedict with charred seasonal vegetables.

    Graduation celebration- our waiter was very informative, knowledgeable about the wines and gave good food recommendations. He was very attentive and even bought us a taste of another wine he thought we might like when our appetizer order was delayed. Highlights were the mushroom pizza and the bolognese- very nice sauce. We’ll definitely come back when we’re in town again.

    The restaurant and bar are lovely and the service is great and the Mediterranean salad was tasty. BUT the pastas (we got two... the carbonara and the spaghetti alla chitarra with meatballs) were terrible. Both were almost completely flavorless. The carbonara was watery (?) and bland. They were also both extraordinarily expensive. I haven't had pasta in restaurant that bad in a long, long time.

    The food was so very delicious, it was hard to pick there were so many good choices. The Tiramisu French Toast with Cinnamon Glaze was off the charts, so much flavor and not overly sweet like a dessert the perfect balance of sweet and savory for breakfast. My family members had the Strawberry Nutella French Toast that they said was amazing, and we all shared the Griddled Banana Bread it was plentiful, fresh, thick cut, warm and topped with whipped cream cheese. Also I need to mention the Nutella ices coffee, it came and looked almost to pretty to drink :). The service was top notch, our server was funny and attentive. We arrived early for our reservation and without a problem we were seated right when we got there. We cannot wait to get back to Sulmona.
