Everything was excellent from start to finish, I highly recommend. Some of the best Italian I've had in a long time, and great service as well.

Straight to the point: nice place and good staff but the food is not. Out of 7 dishes we ordered only one was executed well. Food was very subpar.

Dinner was fantastic and the service even better. We came because of all of the positive reviews of this place, and boy were they spot on. Each dish was more delicious than the last and the place has a beautiful rustic vibe. We will most definitely be returning!

They were taking the plates out from under us and it wasn't that the place was crowded. My husband wasn't quite finished with his wine and whoosh... gone! The music was rock and roll ... and it was LOUD (not "energetic") ... and strange for an Italian place. Some of the food was good and some pretty poor. Very overpriced for the quality. We won't be returning.

Hi REBS, I'm very sorry that this was your experience at our restaurant. My husband and I were out of town this weekend and perhaps our normal operations were not followed. We do not play rock n roll and we never play our music loud. It is our policy to never rush diners, even if we are behind. I would like to apologize that some of the food was poor. I sincerely hope you will give us another shot as I can assure you this will not be your experience again. Thanks Saje

I accidentally made the reservation for the following week but the guys were phenomenal in setting up a table on a busy night. Beet salad was fantastic and each of us were thrilled with our entrees ( the chicken was particularly perfect) - lovely wine selection and we were sorry we had no room left for dessert.

It was for a birthdate. Group of 6, all used to fine dining. Food was great, service was prompt, but the 9pm reservation was a bit late and we were one of two tables remaining

This restaurant does not get the recognition it deserves. All of our dishes were very good. The Beggars Purse pasta, the chicken, the eggplant rollatini were all quite good.

A cosy place with very nice service. Everything was very good. We had the Octopus and Potato / Ahi Tuna Stack / Taproot Symphony / Tasty Crustacean / Wide Road for the Wild Swine / Little Ears of Apulia and Broccoli Rabe on the side. All were so good! For dessert, get the Nutella Crepes. Sorry, lot of carb!
