We made a reservation and after an hour and ten minutes they asked us to leave because other people were waiting, but we were sitting and enjoying our meal.

We've eaten here many times for both lunch and dinner and the service was always great. This was our 3rd Christmas dinner here and I had to mark it down because of the service. My plate was half full and the waiter came up and asked me if I wanted to take it home! I was in the middle of eating and we hadn't even been there for 45 min. I know most people usually complain because of the slow service, but this service was too fast. The guy didn't even apologize for what I presume was a mistake or someone in the back was having them rush people out so they could seat more people before closing. I will continue to eat there, but if it happens again, they will lose a customer.

This is the second time we have been here in 2 weeks. Food and service are great. You need to get there early because it gets a little loud when they are full house.

Solid neighborhood place for brunch. Nothing unique. Has special menu in window, but waiter didn't mention any specials until asked. One of our friends read the specials or we would have never known.

To start, the staff were very attentive and helpful however as the meal went on this diminished a bit. After our main the check was dropped over to our table, without us asking for it and without being offered dessert. We did end up staying for dessert and another drink and the food was very good!

Warm cozy inviting atmosphere. Service was prompt and friendly. Chopped sun-dried tomato spread with warm bread cubes was phenomenal.
Portion were more than adequate. Would definitely go back.
Highly recommend

Disappointment. We never had our water refilled, unless we asked for it. Appetizers were just ok - nothing enthralling. It's not very expensive, but I still expected better. Antipasto Misto was supposed to have Gorgonzola and Parmesan in addition to the cured meats - there were 3 tiny pieces of each cheese, rock hard. Cured meat were basic, food chain type. Entrees were also just ok. They didn't even wait for our appetizers to bring entrees - and we're eager to then take away appetizers plates when we were not finished. I had the Cornish hen - roasted "fingerling" potatoes were just simple Yukon Gold dived up. Decent though. Green beans were barely cooked - and covered in oil. The 2 hen thighs looked well cooked, crispy outside. They had been reheated so long that I burnt my tongue, taking the first piece in. Even cut up after 5 min, it was still too hot to eat. And of course it was dry as hay, and no sauce at all. The portions were good (even large) and there was plenty of meat - so good for the price. But totally butchered by a kitchen staff that clearly is either bad or doesn't give a crap. We ordered a bottle of wine of a certain vintage - they presented me with another year ..... without pointing it out. I had to ask - they said it's the only they had but I would be the same price. Our waitress never came to check on us and after our dishes were served, she was no where to be found and the bus boy took over our table. He spent his time staring at me and looked weird, like he didn't know what e was doing. Deserts were frozen, supermarket type. In the end we asked for 2 glasses of wine - we have no idea what they brought or even if it was what we asked, but the wine had been opened way too long, had a terrible taste - just awful. We would have complained, had we had a waiter or I a manager was there .... but just kitchen staff.

Will not go back, do not recommend. Now I know why the OpenTable reservation was indicating +1000 points.

We ordered the special veal scaloppini with artichokes. The meat was tough and dry. For dessert we ordered an ice cream and sorbet cup consisting of four scoops because one of them was supposed to be hazelnut, which we love. There was no hazelnut. This restaurant is moderately priced but there there is no prix fixe lunch. Other restaurants in the same category offer better value.

Service is slow and you might end up hungry and angry. We have waited there more than an hour for our food to arrive. when arrived it was overcooked. It used to be much better in the past and I'm not clear if it because new cooks or new manager but definitely quality of food and service decreased few levels down.

The food left much to be desired. My wife's pollo al ferri was very plain and my red snapper special tasted fishy and not fresh. We ordered a side of broccoli rabe that had no taste and was hard. The crab cake special was tasty, but quite salty. All in all, I was not impressed by the food. I do want to say that the service was fast and courteous.

This is an excellent restaurant- I would definitely go back. I had the ciaoppino (however that is spelled). It was really good, but I tried somebody's branzino, and I liked that better. Overall, it's a very good place, with prices competitive with the neighborhood.
