We dined with another couple using a Groupon. We were seated next to a larger group so it was a bit noisy and hard to have good conversation. The bread was fresh and warm, with olive oil and olive tamponade for dipping. My husband's martini had terrible olives that overpowered the drink, which was a great disappointment. The server referred to all of us as "guys" multiple times. At one point he took our drinks away before we were even finished. Food was delicious - appetizers of calamari and scallops were good. The seafood risotto was delicious, even reheated as a leftover. The Havarti chicken had great flavor. We opted to pass on dessert but the choices looked good. Overall we would consider going back but hope that the servers are trained to have a bit more finesse,

We went here with a Groupon and wasn't sure what to expect but the menu looked good and the reviews positive so we gave it a try. The food was outstanding and the prices fair. The menu has Italian and also a Mediterranean flare. My veal was great and the chocolate mousse a perfect ending. We will go again!!

My wife and I went with another couple. Started with excellent warm rolls served with olive oil and olive tapenade. Our pasta dishes, as well as chicken Marsala and seafood fra diavolo were all very good. Wine by the glass was reasonably priced. Service was attentive and not rushed. The restaurant also has a nice U shaped bar. Plenty of free parking.

Great place for a special occasion celebration! Love that the front window doors open up for alfresco dining in the warmer weather. Great service..and attention to detail!

First time with a Groupon and the food was good and interesting with poor service.

We visited this restaurant last night for the second time. We have specified when making the reservation, that we were celebrating two birthdays which went not acknowledged whatsoever.

The man that served our was rushing us from the very beginning and got worst at the end to the point that it became stressful. Dinner was just acceptable, my rice was obviously heated up but on the cold side. This server's manners were very poor. His tattooed arms were all over us in every direction of the round table picking up the plates one by one from us until a point that the only person left eating was uncomfortable eating alone and let him take the plate away. Then he said: I assume that you do not want dessert...our answer was "oh yes, we do". The check came with the dessert!

I did not seem like there was a manager around or at least not visible. What a shame! I had loved to be your customer. You lost 6 customers.
