Sat in the jazz room. Trio band was nice touch, but a little too loud. Food was decent but not memorable. Wines were meh. Middle of the road experience, geared for an over 50, laid back crowd. We had the pappardelle and the fettucine. Noodles were home made but I found them to be too thick and a little heavy. We would pass on the Bread pudding dessert next time.

We sat in the room with the jazz, the music was quite nice, the service was attentive, but the food was extremely mediocre, and the tables were so close together, that if you got up to use the restroom you had to ask the people at the other table to move their chair out of the way. We are locals, we have eaten add so so many restaurants in the city over the years, we wanted to give this one a try due to the jazz entertainment combine with dinner, but the dinner was extremely disappointing.

Delicious but the Fettuccine alla Zingara only had one scallop with four prawns. Definitely needed a bit more. Cinghiale was delicious and rich. It’s hard to find wild birds outside of Italy so I had to transport myself to the deliciousness of real cinghiale.

Tried the boar ossobuco. It was tough and dry and hard to find the meat from bone and gristle. Shame as their normal ossobuco is delicious. Slow service but pleasant when arrives.

Excellent food. Great service. OK live jazz the night we were there.

The big downside is that the tables for two were far too close together for comfort during COVID. We were eating inside within a foot of complete strangers, which made me nervous and detracted from an otherwise nice date night. This place would be perfect if they removed one table from the row in the back to space them out more.

Lovely experience. Italian food at its best. House made pasta and you can tell. Bruschetta appetizer rich and delicious as was tomato salad. Wine was delicious if a bit pricey. Music accompaniment was really nice, but more pop favorites vs jazz. Service was excellent. They really appreciate their customers.
