    Back patio wasn’t open and that area is much quieter. Our tiramisu was sour likely due to the pastry chef being on holiday they said.

    Didn't have the best experience this time around. Service was limited and quick. Definitely fits liberty stations. Get you in and out in a hurry so the next table can come in. Front patio need a refresh. I recommend you ask to sit in the garden area in the back. It will make a difference in your experience. Our server felt rushed, I'm sure it's not her intention but it's what the need to do to get as many tables in as possible. Go to the original location in South Park. More authentic.

    As always, an excellent meal. Maybe not Michelin stars but for a trattoria style place, truly fantastic. If one is obliged to eat gluten free, this is the most accommodating restaurant I have ever been in - anywhere in the world. The products they offer are excellent. Bravo!!

    While our pizzas were good, they were relatively small with minimal toppings for the cost. Also, we were very disappointed with the service. We were treated with annoyance when we asked if they had a kids menu (which they do not). We then asked if they could make half a pizza with just cheese, and they acted as if it was a huge inconvenience.

    Wait staff are all know the menu and are friendly and helpful. They will accommodate just about any dietary / topping choice you can imagine on a pizza. Their pizza oven gives the crust great taste and texture. Many of their pizzas come with sauce made with San Marzano tomatoes and this makes the pizzas incredibly flavorful.

    Probably one of the best gnocchi dishes I have ever eaten! The salad we chose was unusual and delicious with carrot and fennel, and it was perfectly dressed. The server was a wonderful Italian woman, who was very helpful and professional. All together a wonderful meal with my wonderful husband. We sat on the back patio and the sun was searing- we could have used a shade, a screen, or a fan. Also, the metal chairs are not very comfy- but neither of this things would keep us away from the great food.

    Great food. The artichoke appetizer and the fried calamari were both outstanding. Ordered two pizzas that were delicious. Eggplant parmigiana was the best we had ever had. The waiter gave great advice on making a wine selection. The back patio was children friendly.

    The food was good, but service could definitely use some improvement. We asked for a high chair and didn’t get one. Since our waiter took so long to come to our table to get drink orders, we had to go up to the front to ask again. Our waiter also barely checked back with us so drinks were never refilled. When we tried asking other staff members, we didn’t get much help either. They may have told our waiter since he did come to refill our drinks towards the end of the meal. The food was good but service was a bit disappointing as it was not an incredibly busy night/time.

    My only gripe with this restaurant is that you hear the planes fly over you pretty often, but the food and restaurant itself help over look that issue.

    We enjoyed our first dinner in their pleasant rear rustic outdoor dining area. Appetizers of polipo salad and roasted marrow bones were exceptional. My spaghetti carbonara was somewhat disappointing in its execution but a good amount of salt and pepper helped. Hubby's fettuccine with pesto and chicken was good. but also needed salt. All portions were generous. The chairs are ungodly uncomfortable which may make me think twice about going back...and the airplanes roaring overhead are a nuisance. Our young Italian server was delightful and very personable.

    We made a reservation 2 weeks in advance. When we arrived they placed us at the back of the patio a few feet from the the bussers station. When we asked if we could be moved, the hostess and the server became obviously angry. It appeared the server even cursed in Italian behind our back. After we arrived at our new table, it took a very long time before the new server even stopped by to greet us. It has been so long that we got the impression they were purposely ignoring us and we almost left. When the new server came by he was actually very nice and we had a pleasant rest of our meal and great service. The food was authentic Italian. However, we will not go back to this restaurant.
