Fabrizio Costagliola was amazing! He is consistently wonderful and we always ask for him because he makes our experience the best ever. He is friendly, warm and very efficient and goes beyond! He is a gem and an asset to any place he is. We highly recommend him!

We began our meal with wonderful soups - pasta faglioi and crab bisque. My husband had veal saltimboca. I had the grouper special with spinach and risotto. Both were excellent and the portions so generous that we had leftovers to bring home. The meal concluded with tiramisu, which we shared. An exceptional meal with impeccable service!

Food was good. Prices are a little higher than most restaurants in the area. Portions are a decent size. Restaurant is a little too crowded, squeezing in a lot of tables; thus the noise level is a little high. We ordered decaf coffee, which was served lukewarm at best. We requested fresh coffee, which was happily made for us. Ambiance is very nice.... love the eclectic design and feel of the place.

I reservaed a reservation on open table and drove 40 miniutes to find out that Uva was closed because of a electrical issue . I should have never been able to make a reservation on open table if the restaurant was closed

This was our first time at Uva and it was a busy Saturday night. We loved the atmosphere and the variety of table sizes....a few larger parties mixed in with some 2's and some 4's. Extensive menu. Attentive staff. Great food. Would definitely recommend!

We didn't know what to expect and boy were we in for a treat. The food was absolutely delicious - the service (team oriented) was superb and Mark was awesome - and the ambiance was comfortably chic. We will definitely go back again and again and we'll bring family and friends too! This is a place you want to brag about.

Let me start off with the positives. Atmosphere was good. Food was very good. You know sometimes when a person makes comments, although there might not be any bad intention, but never the less, when made, you cannot take the comment back.

When we entered, at 6:00 with a reservation, the restaurant was practically empty. My wife mentioned to the woman who greeted us, who said that she was the owner, that it looks like we didn't need a reservation. The owner's response, definitely was sarcastic in her response stating that most of our families come in between 7 and 7:30. I then found myself apologizing by saying that we originally had reservation for 7:00 but had to make a change at the last moment.

Then after sitting down, our main server, Mark, gave us our menus, allowing us a few moments to study. I asked him what he thought about the Shrimp Scampi. He clearly was surprised or annoyed by my question, paused and said it is just like any other fine restaurant where we cook all of our foods to perfection. All I wanted to know what he thought of the Shrimp Scampi - I ordered chicken parmiagiana to be safe. Then he stood by our table for most of our meal - I guess that is where he stands.

On a positive note, the Maitre D / or owner (gentleman with gray hair - sorry I don't know his name) and our other server, Fabrizzio, were fabulous!!!

UVA food and service consistently great. Weekday Presto menu best deal around. But don’t miss the highlights of their regular menu and specials. Scallop dishes always fresh. Just go and enjoy.

We went there for a celebration and the food got mixed results.
I loved my risotto with shrimp and crab but my friends said the shrimp scampi and salmon were just OK.
It was awesome that it was BYOB. The place was crowded and I feel the tables were too close together and it was difficult for the servers to get to you... Often we were forced to hand plates and glasses across the table to each other.
Two of us loved the Caesar salad and mozzarella appitizer.
The lava cake was very sweet and super runny.
The disappointing part of the evening was the service. The male waiter had zero charm and it was difficult to find anyone to refill water-- we had to look and look at least 3 times and considering the prices that should not have been the case.
The only time the waiter was friendly was when he gave us the check. We still tipped very well despite that because they did bring a candle for our celebration.
We will probably not return and we don't recommend you celebrate an event there.

We later found out from one of our dinner guests that her meal was incorrect but she was reluctant to say anything and cause a disruption. She received a veal dish and she is actually a vegetarian. We always enjoy your restaurant otherwise. .

We had a reservation to take our parents (age 80). As our special day approached, it ended up being one of the hottest days during a summer heat wave and UVA's air conditioner broke. They phoned us 45 minutes before we were due to arrive to say that it was broke but we never received the message. I appreciate their effort to inform us but once we arrived, they never told us in person and I had to ask the waiter who seemed to side step the issue. They had a giant fan blowing to try to alleviate the heat but it didn't help much. I was concerned for our aging parents but they wanted to stay to enjoy their special night out. UVA missed the mark with customer service. Had they offered a small discount, or free appetizers or a free dessert to help diffuse the situation, they would have left a lasting impression on us. We were not looking for free meals....just a little something to offset the very uncomfortable heat. When I politely asked the waiter about it and he said "No", I knew that I had made my decision to not return to UVA or recommend them to a friend.

The AC wasn’t working well. We were able to deal with it. Two dinners were ribeyes and way under cooked. And the halibut was very dry. Service was good. The tomatoe cold soup had no flavor. But we had a great time !!
