Our evening was perfect there was 5 of us and everyone had a great time. It was my friends 80 birthday and I had dropped a special cake earlier in the day for them to serve after our main course was over. They brought it out with the candles and then took it away then served it up fully decorated on each plate. The food was delicious the Wild mushroom risotto was the best I have every had. The wait staff and manager were very attentive and knowledgeable with both the dinner menu and wine When in town again I will definitely go back. Thanks for a great evening

Nice spot for a date or special occasion. Food is all very good. Service was pretty good also. Nothing to complain about really other then its a bit out of the way from the action of downtown.

I fell in love with your restaurant the first time I was there. I’ve been back three times since then and the portions keep getting smaller and smaller.

We were at there for birthday dinner as a family. Although the food was delicious and the atmosphere was elegance our experience was average because of music. There was raggatone playing , too noisy and unsuitable for a restaurant like that ! So we wanted to leave early and don’t prefer to go there again.

The ambiance of the restaurant is very nice the food was good and hot served in a timely manner. Our waiter was very good, friendly but professional. I found it a little noisy for my liking but they had us seated beside a family with young kids having a party celebration.

I found the ambience better than the food. The service is attentive, the setup is attractive and the noise level is moderate. But the food was disappointing. The soup had no distinctive taste. And the fish main was bland, accompanied by equally bland veggies, although nicely deboned.

The staff are very attentive from the moment you walk in the front door. It is a great family owned restaurant with that attention to detail reserved for them. The regulars are always greeted by name. Food is always excellent whether you are a foodie into special items or simply want comfort food. Enjoy

EVOO is one of those places that you could drive right by, it has a narrow storefront nestled between other businesses on Avenue Rd.

It’s definitely worth seeking out. It’s got a cozy and intimate interior, perfect for “date night”. They make a decent Old Fashioned. The wine list is pretty impressive, and even the “by the glass” selections are diverse enough to satisfy any taste.

The menu is not broad, but there’s enough variety and it all sounds so delicious that deciding on just one dish was tough. The papardelle with lamb and the gnocchi with Gorgonzola cream sauce were delicious.

The server and the management made us feel at home.

Would dine here again in a heartbeat.
