Very Nice

It was a little chilly so we did not want to sit outside. However, we could sit a few tables back and still have a sense of dining outside as most of the front is open. There is a large bar and appropriate Italian decorations. The service was good and the portions very large. We enjoyed the... read more

I stopped here for takeout lunch. A friend recommended the caffe after trying their turkey panini. As I approached the restaurant, I was impressed with their outdoor seating. It seemed like an enjoyable space especially with the sun out on this day. The inside of the restaurant looks like a classy caffe with rustic undertones and a bar area as... More

I have eaten here about a half dozen times and have loved it without fail. The food is delicious and there are always fantastic specials. This place is great for groups and takes reservations. I think the price is appropriate and the service is excellent. This is absolutely one of my neighborhood go-tos.

We have visited this cozy restaurant several times and always remark on the welcoming staff. The environment is relaxing and entices one to enjoy a glass of wine and bread. The menu is Rich with Chef Pascal Salazar's tasty creations. I always look forward to trying a new dish whether a delicious and healthy salad, soup, pasta, or other entree,... More

Had our daughter's wedding rehearsal dinner there this past August. They put out a nice spread which was buffet style. Everyone in attendance was very positive about the food, atmosphere, and service. The bartenders did a nice job also. We used the second floor which has an indoor area as well as an outside area overlooking Madison Street.

Lovely meal again! Went there tonight with 4 friends, YUM! The service was great, got our drink orders right away and it was crowded. We started with the asparagus wrapped in Prosciutto and Fontanini Cheese, and the fried Calamari, all delicious. The Calamari is fried in a Polenta batter I believe, giving it a really nice flavor. We had the... More

This cozy little bistro reminds you of the back streets of Italy. Wait staff could not be more accommodating and were most knowledgeable about wine pairings! The swordfish was done to absolute perfection! The flank steak and polenta were superb! The Tiramisu was definitely homemade and the crowning glory of the meal. A moderately priced menu with plenty of options... More

When you see it from the outside, even on a summer day when their are people seated outside, you don't expect what you get when you are pleasantly surprised upon entering the restaurant. The decor is imported from Italy with street lights from Venice over each eating area. The decor is so quaint and does remind me of the narrow... More

Ny wife loves this place, I can't stand it. Food is decent, typical faux Italian fare but the service has always been terrible. I dont know who does their customer service training but Willie Dregel should have some input. Just tried to get a party of 30 people in a private room for one night and they can't do it.... More
