The restaurant is intimate. The food is excellent. The Utica Greens were wedge salad were really good. I had the veal parm for dinner and was surprised how good it was. The staff was very attentive but not intrusive. I will definitely eat there again.

The building (& surroundings) is rather unassuming, however, it belies the atmosphere, service and incredible food! A fully stocked bar if you're waiting for your reservation, arrived early to enjoy some libations or even to stop at when your dinner's done. The menu is *huge* & the specials are typically special! The food is incredible and servings are far from... More

I have a gluten allergy and felt like I didn't have a lot of choice from the menu, and I did not get a lot of assistance from the waiter. Everyone else in my party loved the food and the restaurants atmosphere. There was a long wait even with our reservations.

All summer this is the place to be for fine dining with a beautiful outdoor area that is filled with flowers and feels like someplace in Europe. There is an area for drinks outside while waiting for a table or to sit on the couches near the fire pit for after dinner drinks. Good food and advice too. Their indoor... More

I went there with two buddies of mine on my trip back to Syracuse. We ended up getting some of the Greens and the risotto w/ scallop. Was just amazing. The greens had a decent kick to them even though i prefer more heat. Then we went for the surf and turf. Steak was great and lobster was wonderfully cooked.... More

My boyfriend and I just celebrated an anniversary there. It was a very special, enjoyable evening. Our server was great. Even though we ate in the bar area, we still have plenty of space to chat and celebrate. I would definitely spend another special evening there. If you can go in the summer, be sure to eat on the terrace.... More

Had dinner with my mother here a couple weeks ago. I like this place, it has a great atmosphere, but the bar can be a bit loud. The food is always good, with interesting specials. It is also a great place for a business lunch. The only downside is that parking can sometimes be a challenge.

Great Italian restaurant, very reasonable, and good food. The selection of appetizers, entrees and deserts are appealing to all tastes. Priced very reasonable, the portions are just right. You won't leave without a take home portion. The restaurant is very efficient handling large crowds and the wait staff very attentive.

I recently attended a birthday party for my best friend. The atmosphere was typically Italian, noisy but accepted. It's Italian after all. The food was amazing and very flavorful. The cost was a little high but worth it. The wait staff was very accommodating and friendly and with such a large party everything and everyone was on point. I would... More
