    I had high hopes for this place and it did not disappoint! Considering what you can spend at a chain restaurant and leave a little unhappy with the food, I would say this is very well priced. The serve some great bread with complimentary caponata which was an amazing way to start the meal. Tried the Wild Mushroom Arancini which was amazing and the Gnocchi Primavera was so fluffy it was like eating marshmallows. The sauce was so rich full of flavor and the olives and artichoke added a nice balance with pops of flavor. Amazingly good!

    I love the fact that this is a small, intimate little gem. We walked in and it brought back the memories of Jill welcoming the diners. Everything was the same down to the pictures on the wall. The food was excellent and again I loved the ambiance. Melissa took very good care of us. They now added a very nice gentleman playing and singing with his guitar very softly. I will definitely be a regular there once again. Visit and enjoy.

    We had a fantastic meal and service. This was our first visit there and did not know what to expect. Good hearty Italian meals served. Nice wine list and prices were good. Looks like this could be a neighborhood favorite. Our server was Fernando and was very attentive to our needs. Guitar player there that night. Music was great and at the perfect volume so you to talk and listen to the music. Overall, great night out with some friends. Highly recommend!

    No parking!! Very disappointing this nice restaurant doesn't have parking close by! We had a person in our group who could not walk far. The website is confusing. One menu didn't list pizzas, another site did! Disappointed that no meat lasagna was on the menu (shrimp, lobster). Limited menu. Our waiter was great. Food was good, but pricey.

    This was our first visit. Lovely restaurant. We were greeted promptly. There appeared to be one server, but he was very knowledgeable, explained the specials and made recommendations. Later, the restaurant filled up some, but was still prompt in providing excellent service. We enjoyed the background music as it reminded us of one of our favorite restaurants from when we lived up north. The food was spectacular! We asked for an adjustment to one of their featured pizzas and they happily made the adjustment. We will definitely be back. The only suggestion for improvement would be parking instructions. Across the street there is a bus stop with public parking. You have to go to a cross street to reach the entrance which isn’t obvious. There is no on street parking and no restaurant parking (at least that we found). It would be good to receive this information with the acknowledgment of the reservation.

    Such an intimate little place. Quiet and cozy. The service is always great. Everyone in our party loved their food. I think my two favorite things are the charcuterie plate and the pizza. You should give this hidden gem a try.

    When looking at the restaurant from the outside, it reminded me of a small European establishment surrounded by the modern buildings and causeways. However, the simplicity of the restaurant belies the aromatic and delicious servings. From appetizers to main course, the experience was wonderful. The wildfire entrees were prepared perfectly and the pasta, of course, was delectable. And save room for dessert! The poached pear and tiramisu left us with full bellies (too full) and smiles across our faces.

    Very nice ambiance with a wonderful guitar player singer playing softly. Nice people. Nice place. But … it took a long time to get our food. It was ready and waiting. We could see it on the hot shelf waiting for the server to pick it up. It sat and sat while she did other things. When it got to us, it was not hot. Then, the stuffed eggplant portion was 2, smaller than appetizer pieces for $25. Literally 4 bites. The pizza, which we had asked for to be well done and crisp crust came out soggy. And for $24. it was a 12 inch pizza. So, maybe we picked the wrong food, came on the wrong night ( Friday). I know this is under new ownership. They will have to do better.

    I recommend the restaurant for sure. Two people with no drinks - just water was $130 but the food was good. We got the chicken cacciatore and fettuccine Alfredo with scallops. The meals were very good however, we would both rate them at an eight or nine only because they weren’t salted to our taste, and there was no salt or pepper on the table and nobody asked if we wanted any. My husband got the. Caesar salad and I got the arugula salad. My husband loved the Caesar salad and I did not like the arugula salad. It was very bitter and nothing but the salad and a couple pieces of Parmesan sliced cheese. We got the tomato Caprese, which was amazing for dessert. My husband got the crème brûlée, and I got the salted caramel cheesecake. I would give my cheesecake at seven out of 10. The restaurant is very small and although the atmosphere was nice or were white tablecloths on the table, I still would read it four out of five because the tables were so close together you couldn’t barely squeeze between tables to get seated and were basically sitting with a foot of other couples. I still would very much recommend this restaurant to anybody.
