    Outdoor setting was great, we did have to wait over 30 minutes for our table to be ready (we had a 7:30 reservation). Food was solid Italian, appetizers were excellent (rollatini and roasted cauliflower). Service was stretched.

    The food was excellent, it was great to eat outside but it was pretty clear that the wait staff became overwhelmed pretty quickly. Great service disappeared at the patio filled up. Very sad, it was a double birthday that we called in . It was forgotten. Then after we reminded the hostess, after we had the check/…they brought 2 pieces of cake and then added the cake to the check!! Instead of giving us the darn cake complimentary for the poor service. Bummed.

    Great food and a good ambience vibe……..except for the hip-hop Muzak in an “old time” Italian restaurant. Short staffed but everyone worked hard to provide the best experience. A definite return to when next in NH.

    This was not a nice experience. We were in New Haven and found this restaurant on OpenTable after checking local options. Feedback for this restaurant was either very positive or not positive at all, so we decided to take and risk and check it out. Unfortunately, our experience was not good. We made a reservation on OpenTable and arrived on time. The restaurant was almost empty inside (most people were dining on the patio) and yet we were seated in the far corner next to the mens bathroom. Unfortunately, we realized that it was next to the bathroom when it was too late to move. Our waiter, Sarah, was absolutely disinterested. She was drinking something looking like iced tea and chatting at the bar after taking away our plates and utensils (we could not figure out why but she then brought them back and apologized for not paying attention). This was the theme of the evening. No one paid attention and the food felt the same way. The salads were literally inedible, entrees were both very far from homemade Italian food as it was advertised. The French Cut pork chop was dry and literally impossible to chew. Fettuccine alfredo with meatballs had red sauce mixed in it. Probably meatballs were cooked separately in red source and then splashed into fettuccine alfredo. No one offered desserts or asked how we liked the meal. In a small restaurant with few people, Sarah wasn't interested in our experience at all. The waiter next to our table was nice and much faster though, hopefully, that table had a better experience. We left most of the food uneaten and the only question we got was: "Do you want a box?" When we said no, we got a check. Very transactional, none of the family feel that it promised. I think there is a lot of opportunities to make it a better experience for customers.

    Beautiful patio seating for dinner. Delicious food with great specials on top of a fantastic regular menu. The main problem is that they are understaffed. Our server worked her tail off and expertly managed a lot. But there were just too many tables and not enough staff:eg, bread came without oil; 15 min between ordering and getting drinks; entrees arrived without offer of fresh pepper or grated cheese- and still no fresh pepper even after requested.

    Made reservations for the weekend for a date and enjoyed our food but had possibly the worst server we had ever experienced. I think what was possibly one of the owners just basically dismiss our request for more water for the table. The bread was cold and left during the entire dinner. Food was good

Sara our waitress made us feel so comfortable and she was very attentive to us all. Mark, our waiter from our first time coming came to say hi. We all look forward to coming again soon.

    Our friend really enjoyed her salmon special dish. I like the eggplant Parm. My husband’s lasagna came out cold. Siobhan had it taken back to the kitchen and it was heated up. But he thought that lasagna did not have much taste.

    Restaurant was highly overbooked, and short-staffed (were told that 2 staff called out that night); we waited nearly 30 minutes after our reservation time for a table, and then sat for about 15 minutes without any acknowledgement until we stopped a waitress to ask who was supposed to be waiting on us….. Our waitress did her best to provide service, but was covering too many tables on a busy Saturday night. A complimentary beverage during our long wait might have left us with a better experience. We will return again in the future, as the outdoors dining is charming, but probably not on a weekend……

    Their veal special was absolutely great - and the portion gave me plenty of leftovers. This was only the second time with this waiter and he did a great job of taking care of us. We love the patio and even before Covid we ate outdoors at Consiglio's. It is like a little sanctuary away from everything. The current Wed night music is a nice touch. I've been going here for 40 years and will be coming back often.
