A very pleasant surprise!

There were 3 of us. Started off with the fig flatbread;prosciutto, fig jam, gorgonzola - I've had it before and it was really good. This time it was mostly jam - hard pressed to find the drop of cheese and prosciutto. Also had the stuffed boat peppers - they were long and not overly hot - very... read more

Although my wife and i have eaten here multiple times, i previously have not noticed a somewhat strange policy that this restaurant employs. I do not find it user friendly when i am charged for receiving an alternate vegetable with my entree. If the restaurant substitutes spinach for mashed potatoes as a side should they charge $1.50 extra? I was... More

This is an excellent restaurant ! Service and food is very good. The meatballs alone or stuffed were very well made. All of the pasta is home made and the sauces have a nice flavor. The staff will work with you to customize your course if requested. They also have a nice store as part of the restaurant.

The server older white gentlemen named John only asked my Caucasian co-worker if she wanted anything to drink by making eye contact with her, she requested ice water and he walked... More

Noisy atmosphere in the crowded cramped dining room. Food really just ok.... Staff is nice enough but not really... Best time I ever had here was at the bar for drinks and appys. Just don't like this restaurant. Tried to like it... Too pricey to not love it!

two lovely ladies were working the bar and I made them aware of a food allergy that I had and both of them were very quick to accommodate me.

Been meaning to try this restaurant for a while. We were disappointed. Atmosphere is very nice. Good for date night. Inside, outside and bar seating. Appears to be very popular. The free bread they give you is very tasty, but the accompanying olive oil is a little bland. Fig flatbread was disappointing. One pasta meal was good. The pappardelle was... More

The restaurant is very attractive and we love the patio dining. Food was good but not anything special. Our server, an attractive young woman, had terrible body odor. I had to turn my face every time she came to our table. It ruined the meal for me.

Grandson's dinner party, Triple Crown, Great Food, Excellent Service......did I miss anything! Nice atmosphere, wonderful staff! I'm convinced you could pick anything on the menu and have it be successful. I chose the Chiopino...shrimp, clams, calamari over linguini. Was very pricey mostly due alacarte style, but we had lotsa money.
