Myself and my friend visited in 2020 and had a very good experience, not so this time (2021). Staff was abrupt and not at all helpful. What a shame to see this going down so rapidly. When I quietly pointed out the crawling extra protein...on the wall the server just tried to swat it away without thinking that the dish he just set down in front of me was in direct range of the problem. Then not so much as a sorry was uttered. The food was not worth the expense especially considering crawling critters put me off entirely and no offer was made to express their regrets. I am NEVER going back! I do not recommend !More

My husband and I visited this restaurant on the last night of our stay. We were so impressed with the food and the service we wished we had gone earlier in our stay and definitely would have gone at least a second time. My husband...had the chicken parm and said it was the best he ever had (we are from Cleveland OH and are no strangers to great restaurants). I had fettuccine Alfredo which was so creamy and tasty. Also side of meatballs that were amazing!This is tucked away and easy to miss if you don't know what you are looking for. Would highly recommend for excellent food, service and overall friendliness. Also suggest to call ahead.More

When we made reservations on the phone, the fellow who took the reservation was gruff, and when we got to meet him in person, he was downright rude. He was (I thought) seating diners, and when I attempted to follow him into the restaurant, he...let the door slam in my face. Later when I explained about not one but two problems we had with our table, and asked him to seat us outside (where there were two unset tables) he said there were no tables available outside. A few minutes later we decided we wanted to just leave, and we did. So can't tell you anything about the food.More

Goodnight BMurphy, and thank you for your review. Whether they are excellent or constructive, I do appreciate feedback from our guests. If you notice, our reviews are typically quite positive, and that is why reading of your experience is especially upsetting. A server having a...More

To walk by this place, you would be making a big mistake. It is a hidden gem, for sure. From the moment we walked in we were greeted with a friendly smile (behind a mask of course), great service and conversation and exceptional meals. We...had a “choose your pasta” meal (my Hubble chose penne pasta, vodka sauce, and sausage), and I had the shrimp in a garlic lemon butter sauce which came with Parmesan mashed potatoes and broccolini. YUMMY!More

The food and service was outstanding. Sage, our waitress, fit us in and we had the best service we have had so far!! The food was awesome! I had the fish special and the rest of the group had the macaroni and cheese and the...lobster alfredo. I would definitely recommend but make sure you have a reservation or the chances of getting in are slim.More

We had Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo and Tiramisu for dessert. Best meal of the trip, and we had several good meals. Service was excellent as well. We got in without reservations but others were booking well in advance. They do sell out of some items as...good restaurants do.More

Everything was amazing! We started with the lobster mac n cheese which was incredible with large bits of lobster. The pasta was delicious and the grilled shrimp was the best I had on the island. My husband made reservations for my birthday and our waiter...brought dessert with a candle and sang for me (ha!). A cozy place, great food, and insanely nice staff. Definitely make reservations and enjoy!More
