First time dining at Concetta and I was taken by the contrasts: lovely murals on the walls but dirt on the ceiling; chipped rim of the plate but wonderful food; staff with long hair hanging down but gleaming, lovely wine glasses. Hmmm....I do love the whole "small plates" movement, allowing me to sample a variety of foods without "poaching" from... More

A friend and I met there for lunch and it was quite busy with people that work downtown. We weren't very hungry as it was hot the day we went. Wanting something on the light side The waitress recommended the Brussels sprouts and said we had to have deviled eggs to go with them. Then we shared an order of... More

This place is better every time we come. Love their roasted beets with farmers cheese, Brussels sprouts with cranberry, but our favorite is the fava bean small plate. Love the new expansion!

I love the changing menu and friendly staff. We prefer to sit at the bar and try new "small plates" offered each night, in addition to our favorites. Anything with their polenta is the best! Be sure to go on a night that the Gallo Center is not drawing a crowd or go after the theater guests have headed off... More

Friends invited us to join them for our first meal at Concetta and we were delighted with our meal and their service. And if you bring your own bottle of wine their corkage fee is reasonable. If you haven't tried this spot give it a try.

You can't judge its value by the cover. Concetta is a true gem. The menu has a great variety of select food items and wine choices. Be sure to check the special board. The manager and wait staff were all very friendly and very accommodating.

We had a great lunch today! The service is always wonderful. I asked for gluten free bread, which was't available, but they put the burger on a salad for me. It was delicious!

I have been here a number of times, each time hoping to find that thing everyone loves about this place, and each time striking out. This is a Tapas restaurant, and the menu changes day to day. On this day we got tuna, salad with beets, mushrooms, ravioili's, (and then other people ordered other items individually). The ravioili's were okay,... More

Menu choices are designed to share, but every time we have eaten there we each devour our own choice. Service is good and if you have tickets for an event at the Gallo just let them know--they will do there best to accommodate you. Reservations are recommended though.

Thank Richard N
