Went with a group from work for lunch. Food was good but service was slow. We were the only group upstairs but our waiter was not very attentive. Everyone said their meals were good but nothing spectacular. Maybe we just hit it on an off day.

Easy to find on the opposite side of parking garage from Brewer's Alley. Saturday 7pm reservation upstairs table for two couples. A bit loud but nice decor and prompt service. Excellent food and reasonable prices. Warm bread with excellent dipping sauce. Fried calamari nicely prepared and served with lemon wedges and two sauces. Market Platter appetizer fresh and tasty. Fettuccine Giotto delicious. Others raved about their dishes (Bistro salad, pizza, lasagna, chicken Parmesan) which were all reasonably priced. We will certainly be back!

This is a great resturant, but it is hard to find. You should plan to park in the garage. It only costs $1 if you park after 6pm. Dont tell my sister, but the lasagna is the best that I ever had. My wife dosen't even make lasagna this good. The portions are large and the service is excellent. There is a room upstairs for parties.

Remember, this resturant is behind the parking garage and will take a little extra time to find.

Downtown Frederick has become quite the hip spot for dining out. There are lots of choices at all price points. We met friends at Mistero who we don't see often and it was perfect. We went early and it was quiet enough to enjoy conversation. We have been to other spots in downtown where the music and ambient noise makes conversation difficult. The menu was very interesting with lots of tempting choices. We disagree with another reviewer who said that the portions were moderately sized. We should have shared appetizers. Food was yummy but dessert was the least interesting course. Service was great.

Had the shrimp and crab risotto. Really good, also had a mozzarella and tomato/basil appetizer that was good. Girlfriend had an eggplant, goat cheese and marinara noodle dish that was good. Liked the atmosphere, great service. All around good experience, will definitely try to go back when in Frederick.
