    This was my second time going to this location and was an attempt to change my initial poor decision. Service was very attentive and friendly. We started with the focaccia and meatballs. The focaccia was delicious and the meatballs were just not my taste consistency-wise. For dinner we shared the gnocchi and wild mushroom risotto which were both delicious. I would recommend this as a stop for a good meal and beautiful ambience.

    One of the best dining experiences I have ever had. The food and drinks were absolutely amazing and there was a wide selection. Our verbal was extremely educated, attentive and outgoing. The pricing is also extremely affordable and reasonable. Hope to be back soon! Thank you RPM and staff!

    Very exquisite food and very good quality! Sometimes it’s nice to splurge once in a while, especially in one of my favorite cities. Side note: when you reserve for big groups, I would suggest two people in the group reserving and then coming in person the night before or a few hours before the reservation to see if there’s a possibility to sit together. The hostesses were very accommodating. Thank you!

    We had a very fun experience at RPM Italian. The dishes were very good. Some of our favorites were the Mediterranean Octopus, Brussels sprouts, meatball appetizer, and swordfish. The cocktails were also very well crafted with a long list of bourbons, ryes, whiskeys.

    We were there celebrating a very special birthday and RPM Italian is the guest of honor's favorite restaurant and he goes here all the time. The girl that seated us had an attitude and had a look on her face that she would literally rather be anywhere else in the world to the point where one of my guests had to ask her if she was ok, I'm not sure if she was having a bad day but it was very visible on her face and she acted annoyed when we asked if we could have another table but there was a woman that I wish i got her name because she was amazing and she found out that maybe we wanted a round table and she moved us to the round table. She also brought us a variety of readers when our waitress only brought one pair that were too strong for someone that needed it so I appreciated her so much because I would not have been happy with our experience at all if it wasn't for her. You could tell she cared about our experience which I really appreciated. Also there was a misunderstanding with our waitress on the salads and who was splitting what so we had to order another salad because the way it was split up (which I appreciated that they split them for us), there was a person that was left out and was not brought out a salad. Other than that, the food was outstanding but maybe it was just a bad night but I think service needs to be taken up a notch because that is also a very important part of the dining experience.

    The server was very rude and the food was cold. She would rush back and forth by our table and never stop to ask how our meal was. I have dined here many times and have always enjoyed the experience but was highly disappointed by our server. Not polite or accommodating and rushed us. Sommelier was excellent and took great care. I had guests from out of town that I have been raving about the restaurant and was embarrassed about the experience.

    Ambiance and overall experience was good. Food was ok. Definitely not the best Italian I've ever had, but not bad. I wish they didn't grill the focaccia and left it soft... And the cheesecake definitely need some citrus to cut the sweetness. The texture of the pastas was great, but the sauces are in desperate need of flavor. The gnocchi needed a creamier sauce in our opinion... For a cheese and pepper (cacio e pepe) sauce, it was very oily.

    Disappointing both in food and service. You really wouldn’t know RPM Italian and RPM Steak were run and owned by the same people. I had very high hopes for Italian considering how amazing Steak is....totally disappointed. Staff was rude, not very friendly (like at all) and maybe even snobby. Food was so bland and lackluster. Wish I chose a different restaurant for our short trip...

    We had the best time! Robert, our server was amazing! He was so kind and lovely and fun! Dan, the somm helped us pick the most amazing wine for our meal and I can’t stop thinking about it. And the bar manager was also awesome for his brief time stopping by! Food was awesome we got the prosciutto service, beef carpaccio, bone in ribeye, gnocchi, & sides! So good! For being pretty corporate & making the servers wear white which I think is mean considering how much I would spill on those, it felt personal and everyone gave the perfect amount of attention. I can’t wait to go back
