Service and food were both pretty good. We'll come again.
Our experience was made especially positive by our cameriere (Waiter), Niccolo, whose charm and attentiveness was way beyond the norm. The food was quite nice as well. We cannot remember a more pleasant lunch. Alas, it was midday and all of us failed to order a pizza, which would have been the acid test. What a serendipitously pleasant afternoon!
So many restaurants are only open for specific times and rarely mid-afternoon, this place is an exception. A friend and I lunched here at 2:30 pm and it was wonderful! The service and food were excellent and there wasn't the chatter & noise as a normal lunch time would have.
Enjoyed sole piccata and calamari. Parmesan risotto was ok- rice wasn't so soft, but great service and staff were so nice and friendly.
Little pricey for lunch.. but overall good dining experience.
Very good. Restaurant has a notorious reputation for noise level - was fine on a holiday weekend when most obnoxious people with kids leave town.
Nice waiters who were prompt, friendly and had cute Italian accents. Never bothered us during our meal. Good food and service, but a little on the noisy side since there were those watching the soccer game on the TV. Otherwise, they accommodated my request for a nice corner for my guest and me due to her disability issues.
After so many stellar dining experiences, the food Monday was not up to par. The tomatoes in the Caprese con Burrata salad were hard and lacked flavor. The eggplant parmesan was fully cooked, but kind of watery and lacked the finished flavor that I've enjoyed so many times in the past. The server was attentive and personable, as always.
Friendly service. We went for mothers' day so it was crowded but very nice atmosphere with tables that aren't too close. I liked the smoked
salmon eggs benedict a lot but think that the potatoes on the plate need to be made better. They were bland and just boiled. Maybe fry them with onions or make hash browns or something better. Really could not eat the tasteless potatoes. I remember all the years with Cafe for all seasons which I miss. A pastry or muffin with jam would have been a nice touch for mothers' day or a rose. Still I liked the place and can't wait to try an Italian dinner there.
We love this restaurant because not only is the food incredible, but the service is exceptional and they welcome our 4 year old with smiles and special attention.
This place is really tasty. I had the soup of the day which was a potato soup and one of the pizzas. All the pizza's looked good so it was hard to choose. Both the soup and pizza was amazing. I will definitely be coming back again. I had a late lunch there but there was still a good crowd - I will try it for dinner next time. Also the staff was attentive but did not rush us. I recommend this place for 2-4 people
