Reviewed May 13, 2013

Food was excellent and service prompt and efficient. Restaurant is rather small but nice atmosphere, We loved our dinners and would go back if we lived in the area.

“Fabulous Food !”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

It is so wonderful to have an excellent Italian Bistro so close to home. We have eaten here several times since it opened and have not been disappointed. On two occasions I had the fish special, so fresh with lovely seasonings . I agree with John D, the Grilled Romaine salad is great.
They only accept reservations for groups of 5 or more.

“Not what we expected”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Really disappointed
Good quality ok, but misstated in the menu
Portions are small for cost, everything alla carte, too small and several tables right by the door do summer and winter are an issue
Desserts are poor, for an owner that use to rave over his homemade desserts at Bacco on park ave...frozen at best
We give this 8 months

“I love this place”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

My wife and i love this place, The food is the best in the city, attention to detail in the dining room and great Bar work well in this small upscale bistro. The owners have done a great job of bringing a long needed Bistro to town .......O buy the way try the Grilled romaine.

“Everything was awesome!!”
Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

Went on a Saturday nite, very busy. Had reservations @ 7pm, sat down at 7:05. They take reservations for 6 or more.upscale but casual, owner was wearing jeans.for appetizers, tried the eggplant and the calamari. Both were great! Eggplant has a little zing to it. Skipped the salads as they are ala carte and pricey. Rolls were good and refills were brought without asking. We had the pasta with calamari, with bolognese sauce, and " rustica". All were awesome but the penne vodka was the favorite!! The tiramisu melts in your mouth! Service was top notch. All in all, a great stop. Only hitch, no non-alcoholic beer which was requested by one of our party. Easily remedied, I would think. Will definitely go again.
