We went to this (so called) restaurant New Years Eve and the meal was satisfactory .....BUT...Last night we chose this place (notice I did not say restaurant) to fete our close friends.We placed our orders after being told that about a third of the menu...was not available and waited ..waited for some bread.Finally I walked to the kitchen door to await the waitress and asked for some! Note: the place was not busy! We ordered some drinks and the wine pour ($9.00!) was about 2 to 3 ounces and the draft beers were flat!The food arrived and was tepid.At that point I would have sent it back but we had friends there and I did not wish to make a scene. In conclusion the bill arrived $123.01 and I left a moderate tip just so we could get out without further drama. If you like semi warm food ,bad service and, pitiful wine pours, by all means dine here...you have been warned.More

So slow!!!!! We had to ask to be seated after waiting for about 6-8 minutes. And when they brought us our food, they had subbed out my mashed potatoes for soggy waffle fries drenched in the basil pesto sauce and left off the mixed vegetables....So I had a massive salmon filet to eat. The waitress said they were out of mashed potatoes, so I requested my mixed vegetables. I guess I expected they would comp me the potatoes at a minimum since they didn’t give them to me. Bad experience.More

my husband likes the antipasto plate so we gave this another try. This was to go. it came in a mashed up mess of a container. my dinner - they forgot the sausage so I called. apparently they couldn't take that off my bill cause...the owner "wasn't there" so I got stuck paying for something I didn't receive. honestly I don't know how this place stays open and I will never ever go back.More

We were greeted by an employee not wearing a mask and waited on by a server who wasn’t masked either. No one in the kitchen that we saw had a mask on. We love the food and service here, but we won’t go back due...to the lack of sensitivity to the current covid-19 situation.More

The pizza was pretty good and the bruschetta had a lot of chopped tomatoes on it but overall it was a bit over-priced for what we had. Decent, but I can't say I'd make a point to go back nor refer anyone there.

Can’t even review the service since they left us outside for almost 2hours. Never checked in with us, just kept saying they were waiting for a table. People went in, same people came out with leftovers. I wouldn’t bother.

Fresh steaming mussels, authentic pesto on sandwiches, and excellent salads and desserts represent the result of two visits in the past year. The decor is excellent and homey local Italian restaurant style with the cuisine warming the palate and the soul. The staff is young,...attentive and fun. My younger children found something good as well as trying more adult fare , simply because of the aroma and appearance of the food. I enjoyed a fulfilling experience for me as well as the rest of the family.More

Came for early dinner around 4pm...placed an order for pizza at the bar. An hour went by and nothing. Then overheard the bartender say to the people next to us that they ran out of dough. The bartender didn't even tell us! She said our...pizza was coming and brought out something completely different. Nevermind she forgot to place the 2nd pizza order! After waiting to hear what they would do about the lack of service, I had to ask. Rather than comping the pizza, she took the pizza away and sold it to the people next to us because she she said she was going to throw it away otherwise. All I heard was her complaining about how the kitchen messed up . I guess they messed up by not placing the order initially, right ?? This is a brick oven pizza and Italian food restaurant that is out of pizza dough at 4 p.m....poor service!More
