    The restaurant was closed and clearly under renovation. Why is it taking reservations??! Had to completely redo my plans.

    We showed up for our dinner reservation and the restaurant was closed with a handwritten sign on the door saying they were closed for the day for repairs. We did not receive any notification from the restaurant in any fashion - No email no call no text no message through open table. We messaged them asking why we hadn’t been informed of the closure and they had said there was a fire the night before and that we’re sorry they hadn’t reached out sooner (they technically did not reach out, we did). I do have sympathy for them, there was a fire and that I am sure was a stressful situation. However, by not taking the time to reach out to us and let us know they were closed, highlights their lack of empathy towards their guests, or lack of organization, or that they are understaffed, or some characteristic that would make a dining experience poor.

    Absolute rubbish. Used to be very good. Staff clearly extremely untrained. Kitchen is a mess. Restaurant is dirty. They need new management - so disappointing. Ordered spaghetti pomodoro, and 2 egg dishes and one flat white. Restaurant had maybe 5 tables seated and tons of staff wandering around. 35 minutes later got one macchiato? And one disgusting salty butter pasta that was inedible. No one comes to check for 5 mins so I take the pasta to a server to have the order corrected. 30 mins later the server comes over and says that spaghetti will be right out - is there anything else I can get you? Yes! Where is the rest of our food???? Oh…. Um let me go check. 15 minutes later no food, we walked out.

    Loved the vibe, our server was attentive and the food was great. Highly recommend the bolognese. Shout out to their table bussing staff, so attentive on clearing dishes between meals and providing new silverware, they brought my rating from a 4 start to a 5.

    Ordered the raddichio salad - barely any dressing. The mussels were delicious. The mushroom papperdelle pasta came with bacon which didn't mesh well. The bolognese papperdelle was too rich and barely had any sauce and was very salty. Very overpriced and not worth your money for the quality.

    Matt, our server was amazing! The meal was divine!, we felt the portions were a little small. Left us wanting more! Fresh pasta, house made bread, and the hazelnut chocolate olive oil cake. We will definitely be back.
