The octopus was amazing.

Our entrees were excellent - the service was very good, just the right amount of attention without being a nusiance.

Excellent value

First of all. Location, location, location. Moreover, the service was excellent.
It was a little noisy, but not obtrusive. It was clear that many of the patrons were eating early to get to a show. Didn't seem to detract from the food. We started off with figs and prosciutto. Other than a little too much prosciutto, it was a wonderful dish. At the same time we had the octopus. It was grilled perfectly. For main course we had the orecchiette, small plate. At the same time we had the eggplant parmigiana. We took home part of the eggplant dish. No room for dessert. We'll be back.

They changed the menu so my favorite veal meal is no longer available. A few other items on the appetizer menu weren’t there either, so I was disappointed. What I did have was very good though. Service was a little slow, I guess maybe due to Covid and not enough help, but it looked like they did have enough help? At least they still had my favorite cocktail, the Hot Tub!

This was a little gem we found by accident. Nothing special from the outside, it was surprisingly cute inside…staff was friendly and attentive but not hovering or rushing us which was great. The food was outstanding.

Great atmosphere and service. Very good Caesar salad, be sure to ask for the (white) anchovies. With a starter, half-portion pastas can be a full meal.

Just out for a dinner on a staycation. Food was delicious & service impeccable as usual. Only issue was the fact that it was kind hot/warm inside & they had a bunch of fans going to help. Probably just due to it being an old but beautiful building (old ventilation) in the middle of a heatwave.

I have to say this was one of the most enjoyable meals I’ve ever had and so close to the theaters! You really wouldn’t know the restaurant was even there because the entrance is somewhat hidden! But the inside is incredible. Looks like it might have been an old theater and its day. The only bummer was the air-conditioning was not working last night and it was 90° outside! And inside!! The waiter was trying to make up for it by pointing the fan on us and he kept apologizing. He was awesome! It was the best gluten-free pasta meal and a gluten-free bread that I have ever had at a restaurant! The white grape Cosmo was incredible, light and delicious for the summer! Thanks so much Teatro!!! We will be back!

Absolutely authentic Italian.. superb! The pasta was cooked perfectly and the flavors were so complimentary. Our cocktails were expertly crafted and well rounded. The gelato trio we had for dessert transported me back to Italy! I didn’t think I would find that quality back here in the states. We definitely recommend Teatro!

Food was delicious.( Antipasto, Risotto ) Service was attentive. Cocktails spot on ( Espresso martini, Peach Mule ) Discounted parking on Washington garage. Only thing was tables were a bit too close together. We would absolutely return.

Unassuming front door that opens on a lovely room with arched tin ceiling and a cozy bar up front. Nicely spaced tables, excellent service and the food was outstanding. I strongly recommend the mussels, which are served with no shells in a smoky cream sauce. The roasted sweet corn risotto was probably the best risotto I've had, but I'm a sucker for fresh sweet corn. Overall, a lovely evening out.

Service was oustanding. Portions are small but extremely tasty. We shared a pasta dish, then got our own 'main meal'. Nice quick walk to Wilbur. We ate at 5:30 so crowds were small. Really enjoyed our time at Teatro.

Service was extremely slow, even though we arrived well before the pre-theater rush. When food finally came out (20 minutes before we had to leave, after having been there for well over an hour), it had obviously been sitting under a heat lamp a long time, was exceedingly hot and dried out, not enjoyable. Did not live up to prior good experiences.

The shrimp with linguini could have had more zing. Also, it was disappointing that I couldn't get a small side salad and had to order much more salad than I was interested in
