Love DiMeo’s! We have been there once a week lately! We are big fried calamari fans and theirs is one of the best you will find around. There sauce makes it! Perfection! For my entree I had blackened salmon that was not even on the menu but something I was craving and they made it for me which I really appreciated. I also had a carbonara pasta that I’m still dreaming about. My partner had oxtail homemade pappardelle that was served with cold ricotta or burrata that was insane! No room for dessert this time. However, try the garden martini highly recommend

My meal was fine and if you stick to the basics you'll be ok. Both women sent their pasta dishes back as they were both "too dry". They were right and I've never seen or heard of that before. Mostly good stuff there. Occasionally off and inconsistent.

Fabulous all around!! One of the more memorable meals we have had in a long time. Kale salad, Tuna tartare app and artichoke were all beyond amazing! Penne primavera was perfectly cooked and friends had veal marsala and chicken parm and both really enjoyed. Dessert was also really great with cannolis and ricotta cheesecake which we loved! The service was awesome and our waiter was so accommodating. We made a reservation for next weekend before we left. Can’t wait to come back!

The food was just OK. My son ordered Chicken Parm. Nothing great. I ordered a SPECIAL which was Short Ribs with pasta, ricotta and peas. Did not have any flavor. I had to ask for grated cheese and then it still needed salt and pepper. I NEVER add salt or pepper to my food. My husband had a Branzino special that he did like. The service was very good.

A special thank you to the staff. We were traveling from out of town. Getting into our car after dinner, a staff member came hustling out with my phone and wife’s glasses.
It would have been very unpleasant to leave my phone 400 miles from home.
That kindness made us feel good.
Thank you

While the appetizers were excellent, my husband and I were very disappointed in our main coursss—pasta dishes in white sauce. They were utterly tasteless. I complained and the waiter took dish back. Kitchen improved dish so it went from awful to barely passable. My husband suffered in silence but ate only a few bites. No one seemed to care that we didn’t eat our meals.

First time here and we were definitely impressed. Staff is terrific, friendly and courteous. Food was very good, Caesar salad was interesting, a bit different from most other. The seafood combination was good, could have used a bit more seasoning. Beautiful restaurant, great drinks, all around a pleasant experience.

Always a great meal. Whatever we ordered, whether it is something run of the mill like Caesar Salad, or one of their specials it is delicious. I particularly like that they will substitute zucchini linguini for other pastas for a small upcharge. The special of seafood in lobster sauce was delicious, and the pounded veal chop parmigiana with eggplant was excellent as well.

I went with my fiancé and his daughter for dinner and was pleasantly surprised to find such a quiet relaxed atmosphere and good vibes

They have valet parking even though it’s a small lot still convenient no charge

The ambience is a renovated modern intimate dining area was a bit chilled at first but waiters immediately got the place warmed up.

If you prefer low sodium request that because the food does come rather salty but ingredients are fresh and they have an innovative menu for Italian bistro. Some fusion.

Fully stocked bar for any cocktails and even a bar area that looks like it might pick up during happy hour.

Our waiters were effective and entertaining and very eager to please this evening.

A great meal and we will return for more.
