Loved this restaurant for their great food, my favorite was the Cavatelli, it was so good it was the reason my husband and I were regulars. They changed the Parmesean cheese sauces on some pasta dishes that was not a good change. I tried to like the new tastes but it just isn't the same and neither are the presentations. they have lost my 5 star rating.
The Tutta la Casa salad was a signature salad, they took that away as well as their angel hair pasta, salmon dish etc..not going back until the dishes return to their original awesome presentations and taste. If they ever do. I feel like the menu is not the amazing tasty way it was. Why mess with perfection?
The service and ambiance is still really great but does not make up for the food now. This is not meant to be mean, I loved what they did before is all. The new flavors do not compare now. It is too bad and makes us sad. We miss going there.

Great atmosphere. Service was excellent. Some of the pasta is home made. Tagliatelle with braised short ribs. All very good, but too many capers. Olive starters. Nummmm. Great wine selection and beer. Definately recommend this place. Really want to say 4.5 stars, and would have given 5 stars, but the capers...

We had reservations for 7pm; for two to celebrate my birthday. Having visited before, we knew the food was very good. This time out we were shown to a table that was practically in the entry, next to a table with noisy children who would not stay in their seats. Seriously, this table we were seated at should not even exist in this calibre of restaurant. It was the equivalent of a hallway. Each time the door opened, a gust of cold air descended upon us. We didn't stay and don't know that we will be back. Cannot judge the food this time.

We had great thin crust pizzas and salad. Both were excellent and the service was great with waiter even keeping us informed about the status of our pizzas.

We have just returned from Denver. This very good restaurant was recommended to us and we ate there three times during this trip.

The food is always good, well-presented and value for money.

If you want Dinner, would recommend making a reservation to avoid a 30-minute plus wait. This place is extremely popular, especially at night and that speaks volumes for the quality of the food and general ambiance of the place. Helpful waiting staff - not remotely pretentious as previously mentioned.

Give it a try.
