To die for gorganzola bread! I love this place for a carb binge. If you're into gluten free has pasta offerings for the same which is pretty cutting edge I think. Overall great spot, will return.

We went tonight on a Sunday and should have know straight away there would be an issue when they said "we don't normally open on a sunday but we have a rehearsal dinner tonight and thought we would open". It used to be one of my favourite Hartford spots but haven't been in a while. The portions were huge but presentation was sloppy and food tasted bland. The only good thing was the signature garlic bread.

The food was not worth the price that they charged. The service was great, however for the portions and the price tag that accompanied the meal, it was not a match. It was very disappointing and in my mind a waste of my well earned money.

Really fantastic Italian food. Fresh, local and made with care. The portions are substantial. I dare you to finish the chicken parmigiana. Entrees start around $15. Perfect date night atmosphere.

I was very disappointed. The food was very average, the wait staff seemed so disinterested, the atmosphere was not very good. I do not think I will be back.
