    Pasta was “pasty” in taste. Manager provided new serving of pasta quickly which was much better. However I cannot recommend it. Very disappointed that fresh pasta was overcooked. Chicken Parm was not nearly as good as what prior owners served for many years. Love the new look of the restaurant. The Garlic Knot (appetizer) was delicious and the complimentary fresh bread served was fresh and warm. Website menu does not disclose pricing. The meals were more expensive than I expected. Service was slow but okay as we were not under a time constraint.

    The good: Food was really good, we were promptly greeted, and our server was very nice. The not so good: We had two birthday celebrations which I had noted on the reservation. I thought they might prepare some dessert or acknowledgement, but no. The noise was out of control. We were seated back to back with another party of six. They were SO disruptive to the point that WE hardly spoke to one another at our table. We could not hear one another. Our server couldn’t hear us, resulting in a couple things served incorrectly. For a dinner that cost 350 dollars, the experience didn’t match. Kind suggestion: It would be nice if servers asked upfront about food allergies.

    We had a reservation on a Friday night, but there was available seating at the bar so we opted to sit there. The service and the food was excellent! We got the clams casino special to start, he had the short ribs, I had a rib eye with blue cheese crust, it was cooked perfectly. I can't wait to go back! Friendly staff and customers.

    This is our second time coming here. The first was during the holiday season last month, which I was hesitant to go because of the mixed reviews. But it ended up being great. The second was yesterday to celebrate Valentine's day. They stuck us in what I think they would refer to as their banquet room. There were two round tables in there full of older people who were shouting so loud that we felt like we were at a concert! It became much quieter once their food arrived and after one table finished and left! I asked the hostess if she could move us to another table outside of this room and she told me "no, sorry." From that point onwards, the service was terrible. Our waiter was not very attentive to us. We finished our meals at 8:05 PM, and did not leave until 8:35 PM. 30 minutes to wait for a check and cash out! Our reservations for 2 were at 6:45 PM and we left almost 2 hours later. The food, it was about the same as last time. The clams casino app special was not worth the $18 for 5 clams. Now I see why the reviews are so mixed...

    Wanted to try during the holiday decoration season but could never get a reasonable reservation time. Decided to try last minute on a Monday and got a 7:15 but opted to sit at the bar when we saw a few seats available when we got there. Excellent martinis (although not strong), two fantastic pasta dishes definitely homemade, and delicious wine by the glass. Bill was over $125 with no apps or dessert but will be back, probably for a special occasion or something to celebrate again.

    My post pop-up trip to the Venetian was excellent. This is a neighborhood Italian restaurant that is punching way above its weight class. Some of the perks that you don’t get everywhere include olive oil with two kinds of bread to snack on, a solid, reasonably priced wine list, and a inventive cocktail list that has a few items that delight. Last night’s affogato martini was unexpectedly good. Our server arrived with a scoop of ice cream in a martini glass and shook the rest of the martini in a small shaker, pouring it into the class and making a neat presentation. The Caesar salad we had was a good portion and tasty with croutons and not overdone with dressing. My steak and fries was worthy of a higher end steakhouse. It was cooked perfectly and the brandy peppercorn sauce I ordered with it was a great complement. I alternate between the spicy broccoli and French fries to have with the steak and they are both great. The staff (including the general manager and executive chef) check in to see how things are and are quick to make sure everything is as expected. The staff really seem to care about making a positive impression and it shows. I can’t help but go back. Each time, we are treated to consistently great food and service. How they manage to recruit and retain such great serving staff I’ll never know :-)

    Disappointed, four people were in the party. We booked through Open Table, received confirmation. We arrived about 5 min early, ahe promptly told us they didn’t have the reservation! I showed the hostess the confirmation she mumbled something and then seated us! Not a great first impression. Two pasta dishes we ordered some of pasta that was cooked properly but the rest was harder than al dente, gross. They corrected the issue. Hopefully it was just an off night for the restaurant.

    -i made the reservation with a special request for my wife's birthday and nothing was done to even mention that it was her birthday. -i ordered a piece of steak as entree (pretty expensive entree, but that's not the point) to be prepared medium, but it came out closer to well done so it was not that great. -my wife ordered a pasta dish and asked for cheese, but never received it. All things considered, we like this restaurant, however last night was not the best night we've experienced there, especially being my wife's birthday. Maybe I'll just chalk it up to inexperience or inattentiveness. Thank you.

    Overall the experience was very good - the waitress was awesome the food excellent and the decorations amazing. Only negatives were the music was a bit loud but I generally think music everywhere is too loud so that could be a me thing and the hostess was not bad, she was efficient but not friendly.

    It started with a great reception and a wonderful server Liv. I had the Sunday gravy, it was a perfect bowl of deliciousness. The best fresh homemade pasta I've had. And filled with tender short ribs, sweet sausage very yummy.
