The food is delicious and the atmosphere is relaxing. The minute you walk in you are greeted by a smiling hostess, and staff that are friendly and accommodating. A great place to meet friends and family for a nice night out.

This restaurant and staff welcomed a group of 24 people and seated us in a separate room at large roomy tables. They offered a limited menu to our group but there were a good variety of dishes to choose from. The wine and beer choices were excellent and the wait staff was fun and never made us feel hurried.

I've eaten here before, but it's been a while. We booked a table for New Year's Eve. The restaurant was crowded but they made us feel welcome. We were just expecting an OK meal, given the fact that it was a holiday. What a surprise! The food was incredible. The prix fix meal was $60 for 5 courses and a... More

Just a little different to the traditional American offerings. Great food, good service and well worth a go. Very enjoyable experience.

Not your run of the mill trattoria. Northern Italian cuisine with none of the heavy sauces and "0ver the top" cheese accompaniments we usually find. All dishes are either grilled or baked to perfection. Meats are moist and juicy. Fish dishes are tender and flaky. Shared calamari was a little "greasy". Bread basket was nothing exceptional. Service was competent but... More

The location and atmosphere in the restaurant is relaxing,especially the patio with the most comfy chairs! The food is as delicious as it can be,even some kind of the food I usually don't eat has a... More

The decor is warm and cozy with a sophisticated feel. The service was top of the line and if you can request Giavani as your host then do. His service with his thick accent is absolutely charming. He makes you feel at home. Ask to be seated in the bar to enjoy the comfy rounded booths so you can snuggle... More

My husband and I were looking forward to our Saturday night dinner date at Cuginos which had been our favorite restaurant. While the food was excellent the service and the atmosphere was disappointing. We were seated outside which we had requested. It was about 10 minutes before we were asked if wanted a drink.

My apologies for your disappointing evening with us on Saturday night. I would like to invite you back so we can continue to remain one of your favorite restaurants. I am sorry if the dog on the patio upset your evening. You are correct the dog was not a Fidelco or Guiding Eyes dog, however, it was a therapy dog... More
