Underwhelmed. A first (and last) time visit was, in a word… meh. I have been to two other restaurants owned by this group (one is a favorite of mine), so I was quite surprised by the whole experience. Hostess was very welcoming and we were seated promptly. The waiter seemed as though he’d rather not be there. The opposite of what we are accustomed to at the other two restaurants. The cocktails were good and well made. The food was again - not what we expected. The calamari was semi-chewy in our appetizer and my chicken parmigiana was over salted. The table across from us ordered the scallops and when they arrived, the fishy smell was overwhelming. That was it for me - time to go. Overall, I was quite disappointed. Had this been the first Conte Restaurant Group establishment I had visited, I may have never tried the other two.

Toscana salad and mussels were delicious. Tiramisu has many iterations, but this one is as good as it gets. Linguini with clams also outstanding.

There was a birthday component to our visit so the experience might be skewed by that but overall, the personnel here are the consummate professionals. They don't ask if you are finished if you leave your knife and fork in the 4:00 & 8:00 positions but picked up your plate if they are both in the 4:00 position. They do not take your knife off your plate and leave it, they provide a new one. It's the little things like that help create a wonderful dining experience. The food is excellent, no surprise there, as is the wine selection. The owner visits each table periodically to ensure your are taken care. This is truly a fine dining experience.

From start to finish this meal was delicious. The server was very knowledgeable and made good wine and entree recommendations.Our table shared an eggplant parmesan appetizer which was wonderful. The majority of the table had the halibut special which was perfectly cooked. The server brought us a complimentary tiramisu as a couple in our party was celebrating their anniversary. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves good Italian food.

another great meal, as expected, wonderful service, and glad to see they are busy, this was on a thursday evening, we had a nice quiet table early, then a party came in-so noisy-people, keep your conversations down so everyone can enjoy themselves, and hear what the people are dining with are saying, but up until a lovely meal

The mussels were so tender and exceptionally tasty in a flavorful broth perfectly seasoned and accompanied by grilled bread. We had two different pasta entrees which were both cooked perfectly al dente. My ravioli was stuffed with a heavenly, cloudlike ricotta and my husband’s tagliatelle Bolognese (a special order they graciously accommodated) was again, delicious. Service was excellent. Atmosphere always upbeat and friendly. A lovely night out. Well done!
