I ordered Tortellini and garlic bread. The garlic bread came as large knots which were great. They had chunks of garlic embedded on the outside and a bit of garlic butter for them to sit on in the to go container. Loved them. Now, while...I certainly like garlic, I'm not sure the overriding flavor of the Tortellini should be garlic. Not sure, as I've never actually ordered them before. This was the main flavor going on, very heavy on the garlic. Also had wonderfully large slices of huge mushrooms, peas, and prosciutto, which I appreciated. Really pretty good, but a bit too much garlic in that dish, I would think.More

David was absolutely amazing. We had a party of 14, difficult as hell, and he was fantastic. The zucchini fries were the best appetizer and so was the French onion soup! Mussels were fabulous too! 10/10 recommend.More

I only went once and it may have been an off day... ? Was staying on Longboat for a few weeks and decided to treat a friend and myself to dinner out. I'm from Utica, NY and that city has amazing food. I bragged about...it to my friend because I had heard they served Utica type food and my Utica friends wanted to hear about the place. Disappointed to order two different entrees - fish and eggplant only to have both arrive with the equivalent of a jar sauce drowning both. Never had any Utica sauce quite like this one. The Antipasto was OK, though not much in it, dressing was good. Our servers were sweethearts. I wanted to like this restaurant but... I grew up on Utica food.More

This is an interesting case. Let’s start with the good. My wife’s chicken parm was excellent. The accompanying pasta was so-so. My meat lovers pizza was also very good, no complaints here. Our shared ceaser salad ($10) was fresh, I liked it better than my...wife, the gratis garlic knots dripping in oil were also superb. I’m not sure if they have it every night but this Saturday night they had live music which was very nice. Now for the bad: the place reminded me of an army chow hall, big, high ceilings, no atmosphere, and dark as a NY subway tunnel. Service is slow, salads are not provided with meals, no house carafe of wines are available. So for me, this place is a mixed bag. There are a lot of other places within a few minutes drive that offer comparable food in nicer environments that I’d rather spend my money in. Our tab for the chicken parm, salad, and a small pizza plus 3 glasses of red wine was $66 including tip. Won’t be back anytime soon.More
