My husband and I had dinner there on Saturday night with our Son and Daughter-in-Law.
We all had some kind of pasta and it was served hot and your portions were large. I had an antipasto for an appetizer. It was one of the best we had. The waitress was really nice and the owner came over and gave us all a glass of lemoncello. He was very concerned that we all had a good time at his restaurant. We would go back.

Was supposed to go to Nectar, but due to the ice storm of Feb 2014, they lost their power and couldn't take us. All of the couples we were going out with were local, so we chose this place. I drive by it almost everyday, so have been wanting to try it as I'm a big fan of good italian food. The waiter was completely clueless. We had to ask for wine glasses 3 times (it is a BYOB). The 3rd time, he finally brought some over, but admitted he had no idea which ones were red or white. He proceeded to read us the specials and specifically called out the "cream of chicken soup, which is homemade". Uhhh, aren't we at a restaurant? I hope it is homemade. As we were ordering some appetizers, I ordered the caprese and he specifically called out a warm version of a caprese salad was his favorite. I ordered and it was the grossest thing I've ever eaten. The clams had absolutely no flavor and the salad served with both caprese salads was wilted and dressing laiden. I ordered a rigatoni which I didn't recall had a cream sauce in the description, but was served with one. My husband's gnocchi was garlic ridden. There were 8 of us and all of our entrees where served over a matter of about 10-15 minutes. Most were cold when they were served. He brought over the dessert tray when only about 1/2 of us were sitting down and then seemed annoyed when we asked him to come back. The waiter then put down the check and asked how we were paying?? Not just set it on the table as normally would happen. Was $83 per couple, which normally, would be fine, but was just a waste of money. Will stick with Trattoria Guisseppe in Newtown Square for a great BYOB Italian. Thank goodness for good wine and friends!

Went there for Saturday night dinner. Had a groupon but good location. Appetizer were delicious. Clams and mussels yum. Liked both sauces. Had to ask for bread and for it to be refilled and also had to ask for water. The entrees were delicious. Chix pram was delicious but should come with extra sauce and weird it comes with pasta and risotto. Shoould only have big side of pasta and sauce. Lobster ravioli was delicious. Dessert was so good. Nice for owner to come out and offer after dinner drinks. Hope this place makes it. Should train service a little more. Saw servers eating in clear view of tables. And my server couldn't answer any of our questions on menu. Love byob.

...for Brunch?!?
I don't think so ~
But we did!?!
Went on a Groupon even though we read service was slow...

Where do I start, well,.
Menu really had more lunch items than breakfast dishes...
The water was actually sour - like swill...!
Didn't have any coffee ready and
NO cream for the coffee {yea, I know! @ breakfast, right?!?}
...so, 30+ mins later the food arrives
some 10 mins after the folks who arrived after us got their food
and my Lady's pancakes are actually COLD!!!
I swear to God...they weren't even warm...?!?!?!

Sent it back...came out with NO whipped cream...& burnt!
NATCH!
My Eggs Benedict was quite good
But, this meal should be a no brainer, Folks...!?!?!?!

The problem was a kitchen one....not the waitress, OK?
But, I'm afraid something's very wrongo duongo @ Dom's Place ~
