Delicious little Italian place

Great romantic Italian restaurant. The Chef is amazing and full of personality. He even has a cooking school next door. We like to come in summer and sit at a table on the sidewalk with a glass of wine and appetizer.

Although it can be a little noisy because a lot of tables are squeezed into a small space, the service and food are excellent. My wife and I have eaten here a number of times, the most recent time being just last week. All the ingredients are fresh and the food is expertly prepared. You'll enjoy your meal, I guarantee...

II Mito on North Ave is a little gem. The food is good, but not great. The cost for some menu items are a little pricee. The interior is very nice and cozy. The wait staff was great. If you try this gem, you my have a different option. I would give food a 21/2 stars, 4 stars for the... More

This restaurant uses quality ingredients. I like the seasonal changes to the menu and romantic atmosphere. Delicious risotto, desserts, and martinis!

Delicious food (try the pasta bolognese!) wonderful wine list & impeccable service. We were greeted warmly & made to feel comfortable throughout our perfectly paced meal. We were never made to feel rushed in any way & we were encouraged to comfortably enjoy the company of our friends in addition to our outstanding meal. Can't wait to return.

We ate early (6:00) on New Years Eve and it was packed already. We were seated at a high top in the room with the demo kitchen which was great for us as it was quieter than the main dining room (although open to it though a large cut-out hung with candles.) We never mind eating at high tops or... More

The spaghetti bolognese and mezzaluna ravioli de zucca are wonderful. Warm bread and garlic and oil always begin the meal. Food is always fresh and delicious. Service is always spectacular - John is always attentive and friendly. Treat yourself! Tell Chef Feker that Lynda sent you!

Location was convenient to appointments in the area. Researched Trip advisor prior. Reservation@ opening; 5:00. Service was attentive and constant - water glasses filled, dish as described, taste to your liking, etc. Calamari w/sea salt unique and delicious. Caprese salad with oven roasted tomatoes and buffalata excellent. Lamb shank gobbled up except for the bone. Pumpkin ravioli over the top... More

We waited 40 minutes for our table even though we had made a reservation weeks ago and it was hard not to be annoyed, but within seconds of being seated we received a complimentary appetizer. Very nice touch! Entrees were ok, not as good as previous times. Chocolate Hazelnut tort was exquisite! Service was excellent,
