The food did not disappoint except it never got ordered! Table service was infuriatingly slow, inconsistent and maddening that I wanted to get up and bus the tables myself to get things moving along. We were amused our waiter couldn't make eye contact and looked as if he wanted to cry every time he approached our table. Our pizza order... More

We had a table of 5 for an early dinner on Saturday night. We arrived at 5pm and I believe we were only the third table in the restaurant at that time. Service was extremely slow.

Great glass of wine, nice bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and some wonderful olive, next came the lovely salads, then wow... our 14" pizza was more like a 16" pizza, we topped it with garlic sauce, caramelized onions, lobster, anchovies, red onions, arugula and mozzarella... incredible, it was fabulous!

This isn't your typical Italian restaraunt that's for sure! The cuisine was fantastic! We started out with Calamari and I loved it. It was served on spring lettuce with roasted bell peppers. The combination was great! Next I ordered the Caprese salad and with was so fresh I bet you the mozarella was made there. For my entre, I had... More

Had the lasagna with Italian sausage....buono! Casual, leisure dining with outstanding food. Had no room for dessert...generous portions for main course at a reasonable price.

This is a very nice restaurant, a bit pricy but chic, you will love it if you are going with a couple or with friends.

I ordered the spaghetti & meatballs - I was only able to eat 2 of the meatballs & about half of the noodles. Portions were much larger than I had expected ..... certainly made a great snack for later!!
