The atmosphere was inviting & comfortable. The service was timely, courteous, & considerate. The menu had things familiar & new. The food was delicious, the scallops were especially excellent! If you're looking for a place to enjoy a really good Italian meal, this is it!

The people at this establishment, I felt, were a little snooty. Meatballs had a nice flavor, but were tough. I enjoyed the bread with dipping oil.

Great dinner venue walking distance from downtown, near the western Maryland scenic railroad station. They do half portions for kids or adults that don't want a huge plate of pasta. The inside beautiful, but we dined outside. The fried calamari, pasta, and salads were all good. The service was exceptional and due for the week we didn't need a reservation.

I love this place. Not only is the food good, but the service is friendly and the atmosphere charming. The head chef is very talented, and in addition to the regular menu there is a full page of specials every day. Many of the ingredients are locally sourced, and everything is fresh and seasonal. I have no dietary restrictions but... More

This is a favorite restaurant destination for any special occasion, business entertaining, and especially on "date night." The Ottaviani family are the most gracious of hosts, the kitchen under chef Cristina accommodates my gluten and dairy free needs adjusting nearly anything on the menu, and Jeff at the bar usually recommends excellent Italian wines to pair with the meal. Most... More

I have dined here many times and cannot say enough good things about this pace. I am a vegan and they go out of their way to provide an excellent vegan meal for me. The food and service are always excellent and the staff is very friendly and accommodating.

Great food, great service. I will definitely return to this restaurant. The Chicken Abruzzo was the best.

OK - we were a big group (9) so, I'll give them that! But nothing we ordered was complicated. 4 of our group got a 1/2 order of meatballs with pasta! I ordered a Caesar Salad with chicken. After 1 hour, the three people who ordered appetizers got them, and then we never saw our waiter. When It was 1... More

we were just buzzing around and stopped for a bite different than fast food, wait staff did not know ingredients in products (i have multiple severe allergies) and did not seem interested in adjusting recipes so i could eat, and there was literally nothing on menu I could risk
