Food good. Bread basket $5.00? Very noisy indoors. Decent value for money spent. Recommended but not without some issues.

Enjoyed eating outdoors on a Saturday night. Very attentive staff. She had the linguine with seafood and I had the papparedelle saffron with shrimp. Both were very good. Lots of atmosphere indoors. We would recommend.

Dishes weren’t half bad, just served in the wrong order I asked. Mostly lacking flavor; needed more seasoning. My wife brought her tuna home and ended up making a much better leftover dish. Would I go back, I doubt it. I’ve eaten there years ago and it was terrific, must be the pandemic. Chef rj

Indoor dining was very noisy. Basic table amenities, like bread or salt and pepper, were absent. Grated cheese for pasta must be requested. The seafood linguine arrived warm, not hot. I didn’t send it back because reheated seafood gets rubbery and the whole process puts my meal out of sync with the other diners.
The seafood served was generous and perfectly cooked. The white sauce was thinner than I prefer but that’s personal preference. The appetizers and oysters were excellent.
I had the impression of being rushed. Some of this could be explained by a staff shortage but I don’t know if that was the case.

We both got steaks and they had no flavor. The sauce that came on them were really good though. Maybe they are known for the seafood?

we had a great experience, our server was incredible and so kind to us and our kids. Our seafood platter was great, as was our appetizer salads and carpaccio. Also, the kids menu cheeseburger was amazing, which is few and far between when it comes to kids meal stuff.

The food and service were amazing, doesn’t seem like we really needed the reservation on a Thursday night. However the ambiance was a little too quiet and the crowd a little bit older and too judgmental for my taste.

Outdoor dining still leaves something to be desired in most locations especially once the sun goes down. Being outdoors leads to the food chilling quickly.
Food was great and service was satisfactory considering they were shorthanded.
Would revisit.

Nice little restaurant away from the town square and had its own parking. The outdoor dining area was very nice and properly distanced. We were seated right away. We had lunch there and I enjoyed the BLT and my spouse had the chicken Caesar salad which was good with a generous portion of chicken.

It was my BFF’s 80th birthday. Miguel took very good care of us. We had drinks& oysters to start. My girlfriend ordered the seafood pasta (excellent), I had the filet mignon, medium rare with extra veggies & no potatoes . The fillet was cooked a little more on the medium side & the spinach was so salty I unable to eat it. All I all it was a great experience, will definitely go back again.

Calamari very ordinary. Pizza place quality
Filet mignon for $41 was well done when ordered medium
This was shown to waiter first hand but still charged fully and no credit given. Will not return. Check $160 plus tip

Fantastic food and service! It was priced a little high but, not outlandish for the quality. Service was very professional and our waitress predicted our needs and showed up at exactly the right times. We'll definitely go again next time we're in town.
