There was nothing special about this restaurant other than the QUANTITY of food on your plate, mediocre quality at best. I can not recommend this restaurant.

The food was wonderful, and it came out very quickly. However, there were a few minor annoyances. First, there was no hostess at the hostess stand when we arrived and there were a couple of parties waiting. We were finally seated by a waiter. Then there was a 50% bottle of wine discount which we took advantage of, and it wasn't until we went to pay that we were told it couldn't be combined with a coupon we had although we had mentioned our coupon at the very beginning of the evening. Neither of these took away from the great food, but for the price paid, they were disappointing.

The restaurant was outstanding, with respect to the food and the value received. However, I did not rate the experience "outstanding" because I was unable to get the full value of my Groupon coupon, because it had expired the day before. I was hoping that the restaurant would be able to overlook the expiration date of the coupon, but they chose not to do so. Other than that, our experience was wonderful and the food is highly recommended.

I'm sorry but food quality was very poor this weekend. We visit often, but this was unpleasant. Service is good as always. Nothing servers can do for food quality.

Both of our main courses (one veal and one fish) were overcooked and chewy. Both seem to have been made with frozen product. Our server was unsure about the menu. After placing our order we didn't see our server again for 20 to 30 minutes. Summary: low quality food, overpriced, and poor service --- send your money elsewhere.

The food was decent but nothing special. The meats seemed dry for several of us. The sauces were on the slaty side. Veal was on the dry side and seemed like it might have been overlooked. Service was superb and the ambiance is pretty good.

Absolutely delicious. I've been coming here since I was a child with my family and it is still amazing. This occasion the food was actually the best I've ever had. I've heard they're under new management so good job! My only complaint is that they didn't have a host so we had to wait about 5 minutes to get somebody's attention to be seated. Other than that, superb. Will be back soon!

Another excellent meal, this time for my birthday. The menu provided more than one item that could satisfy a steak, fish, chicken, or pasta lover, an elementary school child, a teenager, and a vegetarian. The NY Strip Steak Vesuvio, Giambolto, Caesar Salad and the Rockfish special were all exceptional. The wine list is varied and reasonably priced. The waiter was professional, thorough, and very personable with the kids. We will return to this exceptional restaurant.

I came here for Mother's Day with my family and we had HORRIBLE service. Let me preface by saying I have been here before, and for a special day the restaurant wasn't as busy as you would expect. The waiter came by to take drink orders and food orders for the children, he only got half the drink orders and half the children's food orders. It took him 30 minutes to bring one of the children their juice. Another waiter came by and stated they were partners for our table, so you would think with two waiters things would go smoothly. It was an hour before we ordered food (appetizer and entrée), the initial appetizer was incorrect and by the time we got the corrected one our entrees were coming out. The food was good, but for the amount of money we spent and with the horrible service it was not worth the bill. We saw tables as large as ours sit down after us and leave well before us. I will most likely not be coming back.

A lot of local restaurants could take some lessons from the owners of this establishment.
They always go out of their way to make sure that you are completely satisfied with
everything. Classy owner!!! Great service always. Can't say enough good things.

Food is great. Servings are huge. If you can't eat huge amounts of food, you need to order single serving for 3-4 people. But I'm not complaining about their servings.

This is the second time we came here to give it another shot. The food is edible but we weren't knocked out of the park by the food for what the prices are. The food is very bland, I asked for my salad to come out for my dinner and the expediter brought it out early and couldn't even figure out what table it went to. You spend 10 dollars for a salad that comes out on a tiny side salad plate.
My husband ordered the Giambotto and the chips were all soggy from sitting on top of the food. There was a party on the other side and the divider blinds kept getting hit and one even fell down.

The food was good. However they had no bartender on duty and I could not get a Martini. When I asked for the drink being advertised it was made wrong. We had reservations and had to seat in the bar no atmosphere. The service was great just stick wine and beer.

The food and service were good but it was hard to enjoy the meal because of the VERY loud group in one section of the dining area. It must have been a celebration for a place of employment because there were speaches, clapping and cheering. If I were going again I would DEFINITELY call to find out whether a large group was scheduled for the evening.

Front desk people were very friendly both entering and leaving the restaurant. Food was okay, but would not return for it. Service was adequate. Once our waiter (who was nice) got busy with a larger table, it was hard to get his attention so we could get what we wanted. Had to ask for refills on water and never got offered more coffee. Dessert (bread pudding) took a long time to get to us, and though I understand that it was probably home made, someone should have told us that it would take awhile. Seemed as if larger groups got treated better than a smaller group of 4.
