“Be sure you have all kinds of time to spare”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

I made reservations for 2 on a Saturday night. I was seated at a booth and didn't have enough room under the table - our knees were touching. Service was painfully slow. I love the organic menu however, there are very few choices. If you only want to order vegetables, prepare to pay more than you would for a dish with meat. Drinks are very pricey and nothing seemed to be worth the additional cost. Not a lot of flavor. The place is just too slow and unexciting for me.

“Not just for Special Occasions”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

There are so many reasons this is one of my favorite Dallas restaurants. They strive to provide local, organic foods; they have an Italian flair but with a light touch; excellent, airy interior design and decor; attentive and friendly wait staff; great patio.

I strongly recommend Sunday Brunch, especially the Italian Benedict (yum!) an Italian take on the classic with sour dough instead of English Muffin, prosciutto instead of Canadian Bacon and the most glorious red pepper hollandaise on top. Oh yes, and bottomless mimosas, bellinis or bloody Marys.

My only complaint is they're a little stingy with their cappuccinos, but they are good!

Mangia!

“Loved it”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

Saw a lot of mixed reviews for this place, but we loved the food. Incredible pizzas, outstanding calamari and decent prices for Dallas. We would definitely go back.

“The service was excellent, unfortunately this restaurant falls into the category of not living up to expectations.”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Dallas has some really great Italian restaurants. Unfortunately, the food is average at best. From the appetizers we had to the main course, nothing was better than average. Almost a compliment because a lot of these types of restaurants (elite, pretentious decor and crowd) ate just plain bad.

The service was great. I want to give credit where credit is due, but the truth is I won't go back just for that.

“8:00 reservation became 8:45”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

We had 8:00 reservations and they had us wait until 8:45 to be seated. The service was marginal and the host and matre d were rude. Would not recommend!
