“Can't wait to go back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Very nice charming place with good Italiano food that we really enjoyed. Myself, wife and daughter finally found the place and had an enjoyable lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Calimari very good as were the 3 different choices of meals we each had. Nice friendly waitress and the service was fast since it was not busy at all. Good menu and we all had a tough choice deciding what to eat. Can't wait to go back and try the pizza and other Italian dishes. Lunch prices were very reasonable and the portions generous. We found a new favorite in downtown Frederick!

“Good but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Went with a group from work for lunch. Food was good but service was slow. We were the only group upstairs but our waiter was not very attentive. Everyone said their meals were good but nothing spectacular. Maybe we just hit it on an off day.

“Another great option in Frederick”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Easy to find on the opposite side of parking garage from Brewer's Alley. Saturday 7pm reservation upstairs table for two couples. A bit loud but nice decor and prompt service. Excellent food and reasonable prices. Warm bread with excellent dipping sauce. Fried calamari nicely prepared and served with lemon wedges and two sauces. Market Platter appetizer fresh and tasty. Fettuccine Giotto delicious. Others raved about their dishes (Bistro salad, pizza, lasagna, chicken Parmesan) which were all reasonably priced. We will certainly be back!

“It is hard to find, park in the garage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

This is a great resturant, but it is hard to find. You should plan to park in the garage. It only costs $1 if you park after 6pm. Dont tell my sister, but the lasagna is the best that I ever had. My wife dosen't even make lasagna this good. The portions are large and the service is excellent. There is a room upstairs for parties.

Remember, this resturant is behind the parking garage and will take a little extra time to find.

“Very nice, quiet spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Downtown Frederick has become quite the hip spot for dining out. There are lots of choices at all price points. We met friends at Mistero who we don't see often and it was perfect. We went early and it was quiet enough to enjoy conversation. We have been to other spots in downtown where the music and ambient noise makes conversation difficult. The menu was very interesting with lots of tempting choices. We disagree with another reviewer who said that the portions were moderately sized. We should have shared appetizers. Food was yummy but dessert was the least interesting course. Service was great.
