We had a very nice and accommodating waiter who went out of his way to see if the chef could make me artichokes french over pasta, which wasn't on the menu. It was very yummy and we enjoyed all of the bread dipping accoutrements. I also had the chicken pastina soup. It was very heart and comforting. Huge portions! I... More

The bolognase inspired me to ask the chef how he learned to make a fantastic red like that. Great food, great service, great overall experience.

I've been there twice, the first time for dinner and the second time for lunch. The dinner waiter was very nice and great at his job, my meal, however, was sub par. I ordered one of their "specialties", which was less than special. I got the filet mignon. It was dry, tough and burnt in spots despite my med rare... More

They have your classic Italian dishes and some unique options with an Italian flare. Also, the chicken French is the best in Rochester! The wait staff is very friendly and they treat you like family. Be sure to get reservations. The only reason it did not get 5 is because its a very small restaurant and parking can be tricky.

We haven't been to this Bistro in a while and 4 of us thought a Thursday night would be no problem. Sadly it was. Our waiter was far too inexperienced to wait tables. Appetizers were brought at different times for us as were the drinks. Three of us ordered salad which came after be seated for 35 mins. They were... More

Went with friends for a Saturday night date - great choice!. We had the eggplant part, the fra diavolo, and the tilapia French, all great. Be sure to make a reservation, as the bistro is cozy and the meals are happily NOT rushed!

We stopped here for dinner after seeing a Geva play. It is a small, quiet, quaint place. It was perfect for a relaxed meal with the opportunity for conversation. Our wait staff was very attentive and all of the dishes we ordered had generous portions and were very tasty. I will be visiting again when downtown and in the Corn... More
