We had reservations for a Saturday evening, and we were glad we thought ahead. There are very few tables at this restaurant, and it seemed to fill up quickly.
The staff is very friendly and attentive. The decor is interesting...it is VERY dark. Most of the people in our party needed to use their cell phone flashlights to read the menu. There are TV sets everywhere, which I find distracting, but I know others like it that way. Behind the screens and scattered about, there are red and blue backlights. It is a clean, up-to-date atmosphere.
The menu is extensive and fairly priced. Nobody in our party had any complaints. We ordered a pizza to share as an appetizer, and I think we may go back just for pizza next time. Everything we had was flavorful and nicely cooked. The pricing was what we expected. It wasn't outrageously expensive, but a little pricier than the average neighborhood Italian restaurant.
The dress code was (like most of the restaurants in NH) blissfully nonexistent. There were a few people dressed up in business attire, but for the most part people wore everyday casual clothing.
Check your bill at the end...we did notice that we were charged for a couple of items that we never ordered, but we didn't notice until we got home. I'm sure they would have remedied the situation immediately had we brought it up.
