    Fantastic experience. Juan and Justin went the extra mile for me and my team. Salmon was exquisite and they make a mean mojito too. Definitely coming back ASAP 🤌

    Viva cucina, Our experience at the restaurant was outstanding. I came with my wife and kids, the food was perfect! my daughter has a food allergy and they took care of us 100%. my server juan was an absolute doll. Anything we needed he was on top of it. The owner justin came to our table and introduced himself he even brought out a dessert for my son’s birthday. I can’t wait to come back.

    Excellent place,great food and the service (the Argentinian server) is superb. Beware though of the hidden charges that may appear in the check. They tried to charge us a 20% “group surcharge” even though we were just three people. The server apologetically explained that is a charge they set every time a bill goes above $150,however that’s not reflected anywhere on the menu. That’s not nice and leave a bitter taste after having such a wonderful meal.

    Food was great, service was not. Did not clear plates before bringing out main dishes, waited an hour to get the check. Playing top 40 music very loudly. But the food made it okay!

    We came to celebrate my husband birthday, we waited more than an hour to receive our meals. Tables came after us and finish dining and we were waiting. It was not ok, we were very close to cancel our meals and go eat in another place. We will certainly not come back.

    We had a great time at this new spot! Came for a birthday dinner with a large group of 11, service was great and food was delicious. While the drinks were all reasonably priced, many of the cocktails tasted a bit watered down - would definitely recommend opting for the organic wine! We shared apps like arancini, burrata and ricotta, then a bunch of pizzas and pastas. The apps were decently sized and all food was so good. Will definitely return!

    We had the best girls night out! Fan favorites were several including drinks but top two include the fried calamari and spicy rigatoni a la vodka. All sea food and pasta dishes tasted so fresh and delicious. We already made plans to come back for brunch this weekend!

    we went for brunch for a friends birthday and our experience was not at all what we expected. one persons food was ready immediately and everyone else waited over an hour even though tables before us had their food. many of us ordered the frittata which was not a frittata at all. it was more like chili or soup with an undercooked egg in it.
