We were very impressed by the food and wine list. Menu was limited in selections but everything we tried was prepared perfected and with creativity and style. The wine list is similar. Not huge but focuses on Italian wines and contains examples from every region. Loved the restaurant and plan to return soon!

This was our first visit to Talia. We had a 10/10 experience - excellent service + food. Upon arrival we were immediately seated for our reservation that respected our Open Table requests. Both the Hostess and Server independently acknowledged our special occasion which made it clear they read the Open Table notes. That acknowledgement and the use of proper pronouns for all members of our party throughout the evening gave us a sense that they really cared about our experience.

Reviews on: Lasagna, Spare-rib Gnocchi, Brussels Sprouts, Tiramisu and Non-alcoholic beverages - Spoiler everything was delicious!

We don’t typically go out for Italian but chose this restaurant for Lasagna night and the person we were celebrating. All of us would order the same dishes again though we’re confident there are more gems on the menu that we have yet to try

Lasagna: We had a classic beef bolognese lasagna (type rotates weekly) that was rich and tasty with a fresh dollop of ricotta on top. It was an elevated version of lasagna that had the flavor profile of a heritage classic recipe

Short-rib gnocchi: The short-rib was amazing with a flavor profile similar to a hearty beef bourguignon with generous sized and plump yet not overwhelming gnocchi. I don’t typically like either and would go back just to have the dish for myself having tasted it from another person in our party.

Brussels sprouts: the Brussels sprouts were perfectly cooked though I found the pork to be the star of this dish. It was a cue that Talia is a restaurant capable of many great entree types

Tiramisu: creamy yet airy, delicious yet not overly sweet, garnished w perfectly sized pizzelle

Italian Sodas: Sodas are lightly effervescent with a fresh fruit juice added that offered a full-bodied flavor that was refreshing and substantial- the perfect pairing to a dish when you are looking for a non-alcoholic beverage that feels like it adds to the experience rather than missing out on a great wine menu

It was disappointing. When I reserved I added a note that it was my daughter's birthday and nobody acknowledged it... not when they sat us nor during the meal.
The food was ok (focaccia very good, the pizza was below average, the lamb was ok). Our waitress was ok.

I had high expectations and instead it wasn't a memorable experience.

The atmosphere and the food and the staff was excellent. The prices were a little higher than I had expected, but I’m sure with the way things are now they were comparable in the market. Nice place clean nice manager nice bartender nice waitress great experience.

New York City’s favorite restaurant of ours was matched by outstanding culinary delights last night. Portions are very generous so we spent our meal sharing one focaccia, one small salad and one pasta. Perfection all the way.

The burratta was to die for. Food was all around great, but my entree was a little underseasoned. Live music was so good! Service was a little slow, we were done with our appetizer by the time I got my glass of wine.

First time at this restaurant and we were very surprised. Erin was our server and she did an awesome job taking care of us. We had appetizers, salads and a great entrees all of which were very fresh and prepared perfectly. I highly recommend Talia and we will be returning to try the fall menu.

Well it was a dinner for my husband’s Birthday. I’m not sure what happened but the waiter was not nice/pleasant. He basically stopped waiting on us. And when he took our plates, a piece of meat had fallen on the table. He proceeded to take a knife and stab the meat into the table to pick it up. He was very irritated. He then never came back to see if we wanted dessert nor did he offer any coffee, ask how things were etc. Never have been treated like this before. It was very uncomfortable. Basically slapped the bill down on the table and walked away. None of us could figure out what happened. Disappointing dinner at a restaurant that we love.

We had so much fun at Talia with friends. Eric and Zach made us very creative cocktails to get started. Melissa did a fantastic job as our server. We loved all of our food that included Porchetta, pork chops, traditional pizza and fig & beet salad. There is such a good vibe at Talia with all of the staff---we'll be back very soon!

Overall it was a very pleasant experience. My date and I enjoyed the pasta dishes more so than the meats. The service was good and the house made focaccia was delicious. The drinks were tasty and the restaurant was very clean. If I was craving pasta and a night out I’d go back but the porchetta was a bit of a letdown.

A friend and I ate here following a concert in town. We were seated outside as requested. During our entire meal, a couple large travel buses were parked next to us idling. After a while, we became used to the sound and tuned it out. Not the restaurant’s fault of course, but it did detract from the ambiance. Something to be aware of if you choose to sit outside there. Otherwise, our experience was very good. Food was quite tasty and the service was excellent. Will eat here again.
