    As a special treat, we ordered a very nice bottle of wine (a Barolo) with our meal. It came ice cold, which totally ruined it. Our waiter told us that their cellar isn’t temperature controlled so “this sometimes happens.” Good to know, we won’t go back.

    I went classic and ordered spaghetti and meatballs! It was the best pasta I’ve had! You can tell it’s super fresh! The ambience is really nice and romantic. My only complaint is that they didn’t know how to make a Shirley Temple, which is an old-school drink that any bartender should be able to make, but everything was outstanding and I’ll be back!

    I got a last minute reservation for a date night and everything was spectacular. we were a little late to our dinner, but the hostess was extremely helpful and accommodating to our tardiness. They even gave us some complimentary wine as we waited for our table. Once seated, the service and food was immaculate! Everyone was extremely friendly and the GM even came by a few times to check in on us and see how our evening was going. The food was wonderful!! Highly recommended!

    Food was tasty, but the service was TERRIBLE. Barely got checked on and was thrown the check as the server Sean walked away. Never asked if we wanted anything else, desserts, drinks, etc. Absolutely terrible service

    Food was delicious, but it was crowded, loud (had a hard time even hearing the person across the table from me), and service was slow. Our server was very nice, but he had a lot of tables. I would have ordered another glass of wine, but he didn’t come around until the end of our meal—too late.

    Great experience. Came with friends to celebrate a birthday. They brought her Prosecco on the house and treated us to a great dessert platter. We always love bringing friends and family here as the staff always make it a great experience!

    I ordered the large prawns and pasta with the marinara sauce. They weren’t large prawns it was a small shrimp not popcorn shrimp just your average shrimp. Also the marinara sauce had very little taste! My wife and my daughter’s daughter enjoyed their meals! The manager that was working was fantastic and so was our waitress! Great restaurant but needs to work on their marinara sauce!

    I will not be going there again. A manager made me feel very uncomfortable. When I called and let the restaurant know, they offered me a free meal and told me that "he didn't mean it like that." My worry is not how he meant it. I don't want their free meal. I want their assurance that this wouldn't happen with other customers and I didn't get it.

    The food was excellent, as was the wine list. Unfortunately we had a waitress who couldn't leave us alone; she in fact became annoying. Great restaurants train their staff to be courteous and fast, almost disappear while magically the dish has presented on the table. Not a reason to avoid this restaurant as long as you receive professional waiting.

    Venice used to have charm, but the last couple of times we've visited, it just doesn't feel charming anymore. It was loud and crowded. Not intimate and romantic like it used to be. Food was great and the wait staff were thoughtful, but I miss the sense of something special that the restaurant used to inspire.

    Food was great, fairly quiet, but service was kinda slow. 4:30 reservation, got there at 4:10, seated right away. We were the only customers in the dining area, service seemed very slow, but the food was great, large portions.

    Food was okay and service was just Okay. Our table was hardly checked on but other tables around us were. Don’t know if it was just our server or we were labeled but don’t think we’ll be back.

    Food was just OK. We’ve been there before and it was much better. Definitely gone down and sooo expensive for what you get. It was incredibly loud and people were packed in like sardines. We couldn’t even hear each other talk and we were a small group of 4. Couldn’t hear our waiter either. Really poor and will not be going back.
