Very nice upscale Italian. Good fish dishes. Pasta fine right. Gelato very satisfying. Beautiful strawberry with pear purée desert.

We took our family here for a birthday celebration dinner. 4 adults and 3 children under ten years old. The staff were extremely attentive and quietly waited on us. No interruptions of our conversations and no trying to chit chat with us. They let us have our party and enjoy ourselves. The food was great also. Everyone was happy. I... More

Had a lovely dinner at Cesco last week. Carlos took very good care of us. Attentive without being intrusive. Our apps were the beet, goat cheese and arugula salad which was light and perfectly dressed. My son had the calamari and was thrilled with it. Husb had butternut squash soup and it was hot and delicately spiced. We all had... More

This place has changed, in my opinion, for the better. The new space, though located next to the metro, is classier and the food was very good. I had the arugula and grilled radicchio salad and the baked gnocchi. The service was good, too.

Came here with some friends this evening and we all agreed that this place was definitely a 3. The seafood was overcooked and bland, the steak was rubbery and tough (my friend was actually sawing at it with the knife ;(),my pasta was way over cooked, and the cocktails were served in water glasses. Anyway, it was underwhelming at best.... More

The food was good and waiter was terrific. We know several of the waiters and always feel welcomed by them .Last evening was no exception in that category. The management, however, is a different story completely. We made our reservation for a family celebration a month prior to this date. That evening, as we were dining, the manager spoke to... More

My first dining experience with this restaurant was via Uber Delivery. I was working at the hotel and craving something different. I ordered the spicy top loin steak and was shocked when it arrived still perfectly cooked and packed full of flavor. I was so impressed the next day I journeyed over to the restaurant and walked in for a... More

At the start a small dish of pasta -- it looked like left-overs -- was placed on the table. Although the shrimp and scallop appetizers we ordered were excellent, it was all down hill from there. The waiter spilled my drink, then had to be coaxed to restore a full glass. My guest's sea bass didn't look anything like sea... More

My husband and I went to dinner last night with another couple. With such a high rating of the restraurant, we chose the place. Despite the menu describing that their pasta was homemade, the Squid ink tagliolini with squid, shrimp, asparagus with spicy tomato sauce was terrible in many ways. It had no presentation, pasta over cooked, few pieces of... More
