Good Italian Food with an attentive wait staff. Nice atmosphere but the gnats were TERRIBLE! One landed in my Chianti and was quickly replaced by the waitress. I expect pests if I’m eating outside - not while fine dining indoors.

Not required but would suggest that you do. As with any restaurant wait times can very from a few minutes to an hour. Fridays & Saturdays from about 5:30pm - 7:30pm seem to always be the busiest times.
