Family dinner for my son’s 21st birthday. They had a nice table ready for our party of 4. Excellent service and truly amazing food. Right on Broadway, yet a quiet spot. The complimentary valet parking was a huge bonus as well. Overall, a 5-star dining experience. No complaints.

Hostess was very welcoming but servers were not… we were served by two people who barely paid attention to us but when they did they were not coordinated and asked the same question. I was with my 15 yo son and server asked if we wanted separate checks and I joking said yes and than realized she was serious and I said sorry no he is my son and 15 and she snapped back how am I supposed to know how old he is?? Cost of food is high for such poor service.

A very limited menu coming out of COVID lockdown. Not real Italian secondi meals. Should tell people it’s a limited menu.

The food was excellent we went for lunch. We have eaten at the NY and Las Vegas locations and this one is very different. They do not have the same menu and you do not get the traditional pre-Meal antipasti

The food was very very good. Unfortunately our wait team was very disinterested in serving us. It’s a sign of the times as every place is understaffed. The restaurant management should limit the amount of patrons and not overwork their staff to keep service levels high or they will have long term detrimental affects. We were celebrating an engagement and special bday which I informed the restaurant of in advance but there was no acknowledgement of it while the table next to us which had a different wait service did receipts dessert with candle. So overall disappointing but the chefs made the food very well. The pasta was amazing.

We were very surprised that a restaurant of this calibre would have two big screen TVs over the bar - a real shame in terms of downgrading the ambiance and, in our opinion, the value of the experience.
The food was excellent - the grilled octopus unbelievable and the pasta both very tasty and plentiful. The service was attentive and not at all overwhelming, just very well done.
This restaurant is expensive but, aside from the tacky touch of the TVs over the bar, well worth it.

Every dish that was coursed out was fresh, and melted in the mouth. The bread, the salad, the ravioli, shrimp and salmon. Every bite was exceptional!

The server was very knowledgeable on the menu and attentive.

Atmosphere was very intimate. Nice space between table. Definitely a place with plates to share.

Food was tasty, however, a little on the small side for portions. With my steak, came 3 stalks of asparagus and a handful of small potatoes and my husbands ravioli plate consisted of around 10 smaller sized ravioli. But again, absolutely delicious!

This was a perfect father/daughter birthday (hers) dinner. I had the rack of lamb, my daughter the gnocchi. Both were delicious. The lamb ordered rare was cooked perfectly. The service could not have been better. Not hovering but always there when wanted. It was a wonderful experience for both of us.

Il Mulino of New York (in Las Vegas) is a favorite and this place is under the same ownership so thought I would try it out. 3 for dinner on Saturday, Memorial weekend. Food was great, service was a bit slow. We sat in the upper area which had music, which the hosts said was at a volume that would allow us to talk and hear one another, it started out that way. As time went on the volume increased so not too pleased about that. I would give it another try because the food is so good and hopefully the other issues will right themselves.

as soon as we entered the restaurant we were greeted and immedialey shown to our table. we ordered the fried calamari for the table, it was excellent. the entrees ordered goat cheese ravioli, oregano encrusted salmon, pork chicken, and shrimp franchiase were equally as good as the calamari. this restaurant is a must for diners in the area.

We booked a table for our daughters graduation and arrived early (11.30) to a quiet dining room, the food was great! Service was attentive yet they missed a couple of sides. But our waiter rushed the truffle fries out (which were the best we’ve had in Nashville so far). The booths are really nice and while it’s not white table cloths fine dining it feels like it is and luxe. The slowly dim lighting with a soft spot on the key tables is nice. We opted to go indoors as it was early and waiters wore masks which was appreciated. The outdoor patio has ceiling fans but in 80F it’s a little hot to sit out.

While it’s not expected I was surprised it wasn’t recognized that we were celebrating a significant milestone, much more do than an every year event like a birthday where restaurants normally do a little something like a complimentary dessert with message for the birthday graduate person. This would raise the class of the restaurant up in my view.


The giant shrimp lemon cream sauce with Julie end vegetables was delicious as was the rack of lamb margarita pizza thin and crispy and the chicken dish with Marsala could have had a thicker sauce it felt a bit thin but was still tasty. Grilled Octopus is tossed in a lovely Itallian sauce with capers and olives and heirloom tomatoes and liked by this of us who like olives. Focaccia bread was excellent as complimentary starter with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Beautifully made.

Would also recommend the restaurant posts parking suggestions as expected valet and there were signs for it on street but none was available.

This place checked every box for us as a crew of out of towners — great food, excellent wine & drinks (lime and basil margarita is the BEST), and entertaining people watching. Will come back again and again.
