It's a traditional Italian restaurant in Lincoln. They accommodated my reservation request for a quiet table where we could hold a business discussion. Great job! The food is good, but not great for what you pay. I have had comparable meals for less at chain restaurants. The service was slightly less attentive than I expected. Server was polite, but could have been more alert to our needs.

Food is always great and the service.
At times there are so many people you cannot get near the bar or at your table it can be very crowded and noisy

Everything was good except that the steak ordered medium rare was more like medium well. Was told that they had a new person on the grill. They did take the meal off of the ticket and management was very attentive to the issue. Will definitely be back!!

Made reservations for Valentine's Day evening at 7:00. Restaurant was incredibly busy. Couples waiting on reservations were lined up by the bar. We were sat by 7:15 in spite of the fact that an ambulance was called for a passed out child! Dinner was spectacular! Some of the best Italian food around. Our server was less than stellar. It may have been because of the busy night but found her rather non-attentive, but sufficient. All and all, a very good evening.

We went to dinner on Saturday night before Valentine's Day, so needless to say it was very busy. I was concerned as I thought we would have to wait an extended amount of time. We only waited 15 minutes, had wonderful seats and the service and the food were exceptional!

Definitely one of our favorite restaurants. We went there for an early Valentine celebration. Great service and delicious food as always. It is pricey, but very well worth it. I had the swordfish scampi which was enough for two people. It was absolutely delicious! My husband had the veal parm which he raved about as well.

We made a reservation and waited over an hour to be seated. After I got home I checked my email and received a cancellation notice that was sent at the same time we checked in with the hostess for the second time. The food was bland and overpriced. Don’t waste your time, extremely long wait for high prices and bland food.

I normally love this place, but not this time. There were three of us and all three plates had an issue. One order had to be made twice and both times it was wrong. There were bones in a boneless chicken breast, and the gravy on my pasta and chicken parm tasted like it was burnt and had been sitting awhile.
This is usually a go to place for me, but not so sure anymore.

The outside dining area was too cold for a January evening dinner.
I tried to get another table but would have a longer wait. This is my favorite restaurant. Very disappointed that we had to sit outside even though it was enclosed.
Looking for another restaurant for next time!

The food was good. Service was not as great. Our waitress was definately a smoker, she at one point tried stopping the hostest while talking to us and try to get her to sit someone at her table which was next to us, she did not check up on our food in a timely manner and asked if we wanted another cocktail when we were done with dinner.

I went there on a Saturday night to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. We had reservations for a group of 6 people @ 7pm. We got there a few minutes early because we knew it would be busy due to the weekend crowd, but still had to wait at least 30 - 35 mins after our reservation to be seated. That was very inconvenient for us as we had plans afterwards that we ended up being late for. Our table was also in the corner of the outside seating area which was extremely dark. We could barely see our menus and had to use our phone lights to read it. The manager (I believe was so anyway) offered us a calamari appetizer on the house as she could tell we were all annoyed. I had also asked for a piece of tiramisu to be brought out at the end of dinner for the birthday boy during my reservation confirmation call that was never brought out.

I was a little disappointed in my dining experience of my most recent visit as that is not the service I usually receive. It was two of our guest's first time there and they were not pleased. I usually go to Trattoria 3-4X a year and have nothing but great experiences each time, so I just wanted to let you know about this recent visit. Our waiter, food & drinks were all excellent though and I will continue going here, but hope I do not have an experience like this again.

Every time I go there with a reservation, I still have to wait for a table. This time it was 40 minutes late and the last time it was 55 minutes. When I asked what is the purpose of a reservation, the staff was snooty and unapologetic.
