I would not believe any of the good reviews. They don’t know Italian food. Service was friendly but really slow and the place was only half full. My daughter’s wine was undrinkable. Salad was ok nothing special. I had a risotto that was alright but...More

I’m sorry to say that in it’s three iterations this restaurant has never gotten its act together. The food is mediocre, the service is completely disorganized, and the chef doesn’t seem to know what he’s doing. Wait staff doesn’t have a clue.

Wait staff and maitre d’ were all friendly and checked on us multiple times. The salads were fine and nicely dressed, but entrees less pleasing. Pizza crust was tough and hard to cut. Chicken dish I ordered was slathered with cheese and probably made ahead....More

Worst Sunday Brunch/Lunch experience. Service was horrendous as multiple tables continued to walk out during our lunch. Food took over one hour to arrive and was awful. Pizza's basically came out ice cold. Can not recommend nor would I ever return.
