I think your antipasto is outstanding. We just had a small antipasto and it served 3 people and there was leftovers. Our meals were cooked to perfection and hot when served and very tasty. We all liked what we had. Our waitress, January, was great too. Thank you. More

Always a great time. New dishes to try every time, amazing chefs. Very personable. A great place to get out and try something new and step out of the average dining experience. The chefs are hands on, food is always on point, their pairing of drinks is great. Everything is art even down to the edible centerpieces. A must try dining spot that I hope sticks around for a long time! More

The hostess looked confused about our reservation for 8, despite a phone call earlier in the day confirming our reservation for 8 people @ 6pm. I later received notification from Open Table that we were marked as a no-show. We ordered 2 glasses of wine @ our table. One container was full, the other was not. We showed the server and she returned the half full glass back to the bar. She came back and apologized stating that the bar ran out of this brand of wine. She offered a free drink and took the other glass of wine off the bill as well. Happy that she resolved the situation, but disappointed that the bartender tried to serve us half a drink. We ordered several appetizers and 8 entrees. All of the food was excellent! There was some confusion with apps that were delivered to our table that were not ours. We were pleased with our server and our food and will happily return. More

The in-house made pasta was excellent. We appreciated the half-plate option for entrees. The octopus appetizer was cooked perfectly but the harissa puree didn't really add much. My daughter found the honey added to the pepperoni pizza was a bit sweet although the crust was amazing! Great food and knowledgeable, friendly service. We are definitely returning! More

Lived near the pizzeria on Grant Blvd and thought this has got to be a great place; I was right. Better than the pizzeria and definitely worth spending a little more for delicious Italian food. The carbonara was absolutely amazing - melts in your mouth and not that full / sick feeling after eating pasta. They definitely have the best homemade pasta!!! Brick oven Pizza was delicious as well. My new favorite spot for a nice meal. All staff was friendly and very kind... great waitress (Taylor). More
