We've been going to Winflo for years but this time things were off. The waitress neglected to tell us that there were items on the menu that were not being sold and that happened to be my wife and my first two options. So, four different items off limits was a pretty big bummer. Also didn't quite get how not having NY Strip or cream were the limiting factors at 730PM with a Whole Foods less than a mile away. Would have been nice to get a heads up and would have been really nice for them to offer to pick up at least one of the meals being that our first four choices were off the menu. Not headed back any time soon. Sorry.

I arrived a few minutes before our reservation, and the hostess showed me a table for 2 next to the front door. As it was 45 degrees outside, the thought of the door opening and closing repeatedly did not appeal to me. I asked if we could have a different table, but the hostess said no, everything else was reserved. I looked around and noticed the restaurant was empty except for two other occupied tables. A man came up and tried to make suggestions as to where else she could seat us, but the hostess shot down his attempts. She did offer for us to sit at the bar, I declined. And left. If the restaurant had been full and we were trying to squeeze in a quick bite, I would have sat where ever. But it was a special occasion, it was freezing outside, and the place was empty!! Will not be going back.

The place was super cute. Loved the cozy ambiance and its charm. But the service wasn’t great. I don’t know if that is the way they normally staff the restaurant on weekends or if they were short some servers but we found ourselves having to track our server down for a couple of things throughout the night.

Had reservations for 2 at 7p on a Sat night and were immediately seated upon arrival. A party of two in front of us were turned away due to no reservations. Restaurant is a small house with period updating, very cozy but limited number of tables. Our 2 top table was adjacent to the bar which put standing people at the bar very close - a little too much.

Food was excellent (two pasta dishes), wine selection is all Italian - white not so good (Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay), red decent to good (Chianti and Mendocito).

Staff was excellent but overwhelmed - a little too long between table visits.

On balance, fun little hidden spot on West 6th Street, we would go again. Nice outside patio during good weather but too cold on our visit. Reservations at least on weekend nighst are a must, at least for eating inside.

WOW! I cant say enough amazing things about this place. It was our first time here and we made it for happy hour and by gosh is there happy hour amazing. We got their Mista plate and bruschetta and it was out of this world. But the main event was the scallop carbonara, seriously it was the best carbonara I have ever had, and I am from Philly where people live on carbonara.

I will most definitely be back!

We had a 7:15pm reservation and arrived at 7:05. We were seated fairly promptly but then it went downhill from there. We sat for 15 minutes without any acknowledgement from the waiter who went to two other tables that were seated after we were. Very poor service! When we got up to leave, we just got a blank face from the guy at the hostess stand.

I reserved at least a month in advance or more for the office annual holiday staff dinner. I received a confirmation and reminder the day before. Once our team arrived we were told we would be seated outside instead of inside. Our reservations were for inside, and stated so on our reservation sheet I printed. The reservation clearly stated online reservations would have seating inside, for outside seating to call. When there the gentleman who greeted us told us a party had reserved the whole inside. Would have been nice to have been informed prior to arrival. It was chilly outside, had to ask staff to turn on a heater which went out at least once. Disappointing experience for a first time visit for most of the team.

Change our reservation from 4 people to 6 people and they said no. There were at least 5 empty tables the entire time we were there so I don't know why they said no! Disappointing .

Food was good, as always but we were given what was undoubtedly the worst table in the restaurant, next to the door to the outside that was opened repeatedly by waitstaff and by diners entering the restaurant. We were told our reservation did not apply to any of the empty outside tables but there was at least one other table for four inside the restaurant and away from the door. Lots of door slamming interrupted what otherwise would have been an enjoyable meal.

Delicious food and drinks. Service was poor (the waiter didn’t seem to have much time to attend to us, had to ask for plates to be cleared and water refilled, took forever to pay our bill...). Tables are very close together inside, so it was difficult for us to have a conversation over the our table right next to us).

My Cannelloni was pretty darn good, and the cocktail I started with was delicious. My daughters spaghetti with Marinara was very plain, but in fairness, we are talking about spaghetti with marinara which can't be too exciting. The waitress was very sweet but also very unavailable. The service is what dragged the review down

Great atmosphere but downhill from there on a Sunday night. Our party of four ordered three different pizzas. One was so cold it was just sent back. Another was lukewarm but edible. The third was fine. The lasagna came out hot and was very tasty. Overall, very understaffed with what appeared to be only 4 wait staff serving the entire restaurant, including the outside. Servers were very friendly, just stretched too thin. This place gets good reviews overall and we were excited to try it. Maybe we just hit it on an off night.

Not good... we waited at the hostess station more than 10 minutes to be seated in an empty restaurant with no restaurant personnel present. I even went in search of someone a few times as I was embarrassed to be waiting so long with friends we had taken their to dinner. As the time drug on, I went to the bar to ask if there was a host to be told that he would be there. We saw "he" looking in the window at one point from an outside area.

We have been several times and found this to be the worst experience yet. It was quite embarrassing and frustrating. It continued with the waiter as we were finally seated regarding his understanding of their cocktail menu and what they had in stock and not for cocktail Ingredients. A few trips back and forth to the table to discuss whether or not they had blood orange liqueur on hand or not. Both drinks called for it but they could not make one drink but could another.

In need of better management and front of house training.

I was looking for an Italian place for my partner's birthday. Simple right? Well I had a few parameters: something new, not to "snobby" (in terms of pricing and ambiance), varied menu (a lot of places had very limited menu selection, were mostly seafood based and my beau does not really do seafood etc.), somewhat centrally located and eclectic.

This place was all those things! It felt like a true gem, would definitely go back! The wine selection, menu and service was all lovely. The ambiance was "shabby chic" with great lighting and a beautiful bar setup. Yes Yes.
