I love a good risotto, and they do an excellent job on theirs. So rare to find a good one in a restaurant in the area. Most everything I have had here has been very good. The one dish I have ordered that I didn't particularly like was more because of my preference rather than anything wrong with the dish itself. Appetizers are quite good and often quite an original take on old Italian restaurant stand-bys. For example, the fried mozzarella is not served with a marinara sauce. It is more like a marsala, and it makes quite a difference in the flavor profile. My friends love the beet salad.
Only negative, when it is busy, it feels crowded and is very loud. Went here for a Christmas party with a group of around 14. They put us at a square table where for the people seated at the corners, only one could actually pull their chair in and have their legs under the table. I ended up having to have my chair quite far back from the table and spent the night leaning over to get closer to the table. Also, this caused the waiters to constantly hit my chair when going by. When there are large groups, they need to give a bit more thought to how people can sit comfortably at the table. You can't have people right up to the corners and expect that they will be comfortable. Made us feel totally squashed in. For the prices, which are above average unless getting the price fix, making sure customers are comfortable should be one of the priorities. Our group's check was close to $1000 on a weeknight when they are typically slow, so they could have worked on this.
For a regular table size, more than worth trying out as the food really is very good. If going with a larger party, perhaps tell them what kind of table set up you would like in order to avoid the issue above.
