“Had lunch outside, great food & service, fun people watching”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

Ate Friday about 2pm, so missed the Mayo lunch rush. Had lasagna and the special chicken dish - both VERY generous and will provide at least 2 more meals in the hotel! Food was very good and service friendly and timely. We ate at a sidewalk table on a beautiful day and enjoyed a relaxing meal. Didn't go inside, so can't comment on atmosphere there. Note, prices go up significantly for dinner traffic at about 3pm. Definitely worth trying if you are in Rochester. Very close if you are taking a break from clinic visits!

“Reliable Comfort Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

So you go the the clinic, get poked and prodded, and need comfort food. This is the place.
Once your cholesterol is drawn, splurge on the lasagna.
There are a variety of tasty gluten free options if your companion isn't into pasta.
Outdoor seating during the summer. I have been here several times and never disappointed.

“Surprisingly Good Italian in Rochester”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

I have eaten here twice - very good food, diverse menu, close to Mayo Clinic, good wine selection, good service, etc. All the ingredients and dishes were very fresh. It's not a 5 star Italian restaurant in Boston or New York, but very good!

“How did this restaurant get ranked so highly?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

I'm not sure how this restaurant received a high ranking, but our experience was a dark, depressing atmosphere, tables are far too close together, and the wait staff is nice, but far too "officious" for the surroundings. Food was average at best. Perhaps we should have had more wine?

“Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

If you love Italian food this is the place to go! All is made to order and if you do not want an ingrediant in your entree, they can remove it and add something else. Bread served with entree's are mediocre and could use improving. Caeser dressing lacks flavor on most days but entree's are great!!
