Pacing of courses was too rapid-we both ordered chefs tasting menu and food came so quickly we could not really savor each course. Nice touch comping dessert wine to help us celebrate our anniversary

Food was good but just decent. Service was extremely poor. Waited at least 15 mins before we were served water and greeted at our table after being seated. Confused about who our wait person was and the person who appeared to be the assigned server did not seem to be overly concerned with providing service.

The food was spectacular; the best, most delicious gluten free pasta I’ve had. Hubby’s strip steak special was ... chewy and underwhelming. Our servers, Nick and Samuel, were amazing and attentive and helpful. Really noisy because people tried to talk over the music - good music, just too loud. Why is this? All in all a lovely evening. We will return.

Love the cozy atmosphere but a little pricey. We all had pasta and the portion sizes
for the price could have been better.

Dinner with my daughter and son in law, another great meal once again.

Service was spot on! Everything from drinks, to appetizers, main course, espresso and dessert were delicious. New seasonal soup option and pasta option were delicious, first day of serving I believe.

Never disappointing always a treat, i'll be looking forward to another visit soon!

Great food, our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly, and quick to offer suggestions. We had never been to this restaurant and the experience was pleasant. It was a little hard to hear each other at times, and the parking is truly a challenge, but we're glad we spent a birthday here.

Great food at a great restaurant. The waiter helped us select our wine and the white truffle entrees were tremendous.
