Christmas Eve

We had a delightful dinner with our family. The soups were very good. Main courses were equally good. Fish, pasta, chicken and veal dishes were ordered. Service was attentive but our server was inexperienced. He needed help. But everything came out as ordered. We like the place. Marie is a delight.

Went for dinner and had a bottle of red. Dinner was Pappardelle il Forno (wide noodles with peas, mushrooms, and bits of sausage). It was average - at best - and it seemed to take a very long time to arrive.

First of all, the beauty of this building - both inside and out. The building itself is just beautiful from the outside and I enjoy the various rooms and how the restaurant is divided up inside - well done! Then, when you enter the place, there is always someone there to greet you and they are warm and welcoming. For... More

My husband and I went out for dinner this weekend and checked out this restaurant for the first time. We were both disappointed with the food. Here are my specific impressions: - Didn't like the wine - house chianti which was transparent and a bit acidic - Didn't like the appetizer - fried calamari which were too chewy - Didn't... More

I'm done being surprised....again. The building is beautiful, parking difficult, inside looks like someone was trying very hard to make the restaurant look classic, or something. I think it looks "cheap trying not to look cheap". We keep hearing about the food and I just don't get it. This was our 4th meal and I think our last. We ordered... More

Favorite Italian restaurant. Dino is a really good chef who offers great food in an attractive atmosphere and Maria is always welcoming. Wait staff is attentive and accommodating. I go there often with one or as many as 10 friends and always receive the same excellent food and service.

We went for dinner during restaurant week and on a Saturday. We had to wait 45 minutes (they do not take reservations) but they could not be nicer. They put out a table and 4 chairs in the waiting area, took wine orders and gave us some snacks! The specials were as good as the regular menu. Salmon, musells, pasta... More

Went for brunch. choices were plentiful. Food was good. Price seemed high. A friend recommended the pizza, so we went there late in the day, and the pizza was at best....average. I probably won't go back unless someone else is paying.

I have been going to this restaurant for years with family for both regular dinners and celebrations like birthdays and graduations. Everything at the restaurant is delicious! The waitstaff is incredibly attentive. The restaurant itself is stunning with Tuscan charm. This is a great place to experience that old fashion Italian dining.

Have been here for their wonderful brunch and finally had a chance to come back for dinner. Very glad we did. The restaurant is nicely decorated, relatively brightly lit, and generally a nice place for an Italian dinner...good wait staff...good drinks...not particularly romantic necessarily, but a place that is comfortable for dinner with friends or family.
