Good for Groups, But a Tad Noisy

Five of us showed up for dinner and had the pleasure of terrific service. The dinner menu is somewhat limited, but if you show up before 6:00 pm, you can ask for the bar menu, which opens up the selection. The pasta dishes were tasty and the pasta fresh. The Caesar salad was exceptionally good and... read more

Atmosphere is so romantic and Italian! Delicious appetizer anti pasta, salmon and pasta for dinner and Grand Teton chocolate mousse for dessert. Add a bottle of wine and ahhhhhhh. Perfect evening! Great service, reasonable prices. Can't wait to come back!

This has become one of my wife's favorite date night locations. The atmosphere is quiet, but pleasant. There is occasionally someone playing the piano downstairs near the bar too. Each time we've visited, service has been excellent. The staff are knowledgeable and very helpful with providing suggestions on the changing menu. Even so, we've never had any complaints about the...

We have family in Salem and have struggled to find good restaurants that accommodate diabetic and dairy menu modifications. Turns out, we didn't even need modifications. While the menu might seem confusing at first, trying to understand the combination of flavors beyond Italian, it all comes together in the end. The calamari stir fry was wonderful and tender (just ordered... More

Love the building and the atmosphere is lively..They experiment with the menu, which is good. The waiters were fun and knowledgeable. The food is good for Salem ( we are new to the area and I admit I am spoiled from where I lived previously) The Wagyu beef carpaccio was so so ..the arugula wrapped with beef itself was good..sauce...

We just wanted a nice place to have a snack before attending an event. We ordered off of the hors d'oeuvre menu. We can't wait to go back to spend more time enjoying the quality service and food.

Service is always top of the line. The food and drinks never miss a beat for being great. With seating as it is, you can easily hold a business meeting.

I visit Salem once a year on business. Restaurants come and go. I hope this one stays. The atmosphere and decor are attractive and welcoming. The food choices are selective (read: small in number) but excellent. Everyone at our table enjoyed their choices which ranged from pasta, through chicken and beef. I had the Lamb Tagine which was excellent. The... More

We had a party of 8 and dinner was served timely and the food was wonderful. We ordered dessert and after waiting 25 minutes, some of our party had to leave (we had already been there 2 hours) they requested their dessert be canceled and could they pay their portion of the check. The waitress then came to me and... More
