Slow pace dining. Great food. Chef/Owner came to the table to greet us during meal. Sunday pasta and Veal paparazzi were amazing. Only drawback was that it was friday night. Karaoke was going. A little loud. But the entrees were worth it.

Love the atmosphere, very cozy, Mediterranean. Love the outdoor sitting area. We went for lunch a few times. Food is OK, adequately priced. Service is good. They have a separate party room.

Overall, it was pretty good. My college and I had a stuffed scallop and risotto dish. It was pretty good maybe a little heavy on the seasoning of the stuffing. Reasonable price.

I've driven by Al Di La for years so was keen to finally try it a couple of weeks ago. The parking lot is always full so figured the place was really good ... sadly, this was a bad assumption on my part There were 2 of us for dinner early on a Saturday night. We were seated promptly and... More

I went there with a group of friends... The place was very nicely decorated. They manager spoke to me about gluten and ensured they would take care of us! I got the broc rabe and sausage without the pasta. It was garlicky delicious. My friend ordered the lamb osso bucco and said it was great! The staff were very friendly... More

I really wanted to like this place for a few reasons. The building is interesting from the outside and lovely on the inside. The staff I encountered were very nice. They have a rotating menu which usually means great dishes that have seasonal ingredients. The food was not good. It wasn't horrible, but I'd certainly not consider it good Italian.... More

We had been here 2 previous times. I made a reservation for my husband and I for Saturday night at 7:00. We arrived at 6:55. The place was by no means crowded, with plenty of empty tables. When we entered, and approached the desk, we were asked, "2?" I said we had a reservation for 7:00 and gave our name.... More

To management: We had a spectacular dinner now thar we were aware that the 4 star Chef Miguel is there now and the food is still perfect. We will visit more often with our family and friends to taste the authentic Italian cuisine that is hard to find anywhere else. Sincerely the Lubelo Family.

The food was amazing however a little on the expensive side. If I wanted to pay that much, I would go to NYC. The menu was very limited. Enough to choose from but would rather of had a nice steak, which was not on the menu. I had 3 beers, calamari appetizer, a salad and dessert and my bill came... More
