Solid Italian Food

This was our second experience here. The menu was more limited than last year with a prix fixe menu. However, the food is very good and pretty authentic.

Our waitress opened the wine, but never poured it, failed to bring us silverware, cleared our plates before we were done, and stared at us as we ate from across the room. A waiter (eating at a nearby table) spent the entire evening discussing how he was going to hook up with the sister of another waiter. The conversation was... More

Excellent food. They offer a fixed-price menu for $25, which includes an entrée, appetizer or salad, and dessert. The portions are large - plenty of leftovers for another meal! The menu is small but diverse. I had the bucatini pasta with a walnut/basil pesto, roasted cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. My partner had a New York Strip - we were both... More

Most of the time when I see a prix fixe menu I figure the options are going to be limited and probably not what I want. That was not the case here - there were at least 3 options for each course I had difficulty deciding from. My boyfriend chose the brussels sprout and kale salad for his starter and... More

We had a very good dinner. The server combined the laid back CB vibe with good advice and food knowledge. Not cheap but a fair value.

This is another place we haven't tried for some reason and glad we finally did. The food was amazing. They had a special $25 pre fixe menu for January that was a great deal. Their wine selection was excellent as well. They had two of my favorite desserts of the trip - one my wife got and the other I... More

It seems like they don't clean their grease trap. Everything tastes like grease, even my salad. Service was awful. I felt like I was out of line giving my waitress my order. My family all got sick after eating there. Can someone send the health dept. They need a lesson in cleaning and contamination. Never again unless I want another... More
