I'm not sure where else you can try 1/4 of the menu and still end up with a bill under $100 (not including alcohol). The lobster and eggs is to die for, their pastas are a great size and you can share them so quite a variety can be tried. We always sit at the kitchen bar and watch the... More

Food has always been exceptional here. Sure wish the servers were at the same level. Maybe the last 2 Saturdays that I dined there they were short staffed? Would eat there more if the service were only better. Bartenders were so hurried they didn't seem very cheerful either. We did have great support staff taking dishes away. First time I... More

In an historic rustic warehouse type wood frame building, excellent bar and Italian food. Good variety, fish and pasta, even vegan. Reservations suggested

We had dined there with friends and loved it, especially the sweetbreads. At our first visit, the waiter was funny and responsive. When good friends visited from out of town, we happily anticipated another dinner at BLG. The food -- pastas, meat entrees, and salads -- was flat, lacking in flavor or character, and the waiter was sour and disinterested... More

There were 8 of us for dinner on a Friday evening. The place was very busy but service was fine and food came in a reasonable time. It is a kind of Tapas style if you will. We ordered about 15 different dishes to share and all were well prepared and very tasty. The waiter was very helpful in providing... More

Attentive service, very reasonably priced wine, excellent food. We enjoyed sharing six small plates, and four larger entries, between four. All were well presented and very much enjoyed.

We liked the bruschetta with white anchovies and avocado A LOT. My wife loved the black pasta w mussels and I liked the foie gras tortellini - but it is VERY rich. We liked it all -... More

This place was still hopping as we arrived for a 9pm reservation on a Friday night. The scene is very trendy--mostly young people on dates and groups of partyers. The food was high-quality and reasonably priced. The service was great, despite the fact that we were seated a bit later than our reservation called for. We ordered a number of... More
