Truly among the finest purveyors of Italian/ American cuisine anywhere; service is sometimes lacking, especially in the host/ hostess staff. The wait staff has always been consistently on point, even with recommendations. We love the outside venue.

Our party of 4 enjoyed the patio (minus the flies) on a beautiful summer evening. The food, service and atmosphere were great. Everyone enjoyed their dining experience and vowed to return as soon as possible.

Outdoor patio is like eating at a private home garden area...or small quaint villa I read about vegetarian complaints...this is a home recipe establishment and if ever modified to vegan...that would be a disaster! The flavors in the food are absolutely "like home" and so...More

Enjoyed a really delicious dinner here sitting outside on the patio/courtyard. It's really a great setting that's tough to beat in Syracuse, with well placed speakers piping in some good music in a wonderful setting. It feels like you're somewhere far away from here. Our...More

As with the other responses, I am not sure. I did find the staff helpful and would guess they would prepare food to go if requested.
