The cuisine was very good--imaginative take on Italian; the service was cordial and prompt. However, we were seated at a table near the door, and the noise and bar traffic was annoying: constant bumping of our seats and bellowing by those at the bar made it difficult to enjoy the evening. And, directly overhead, was a speaker with completely unnecessary, loud, and mediocre music. (Why do restaurants believe that they need such background noise?) Fun spot, very good food, but do not count on being able to have a conversation.

Enjoyed a second wonderful meal at UNITA and serendipitously were helped with the same waitress as our last visit, Claire. She’s exceptional with helpful dining recommendations along with tips for a good live music. We thoroughly enjoyed the antipasto, pastas and deserts. We will most certainly return.

Based on some previous reviews i decided to pick this place for bday dinner. Made reservations and put in a request to write a happy b'day sign on the dessert! Got confirmation and the reservation guy said they will put a candle as they don't do signs, which i as good with. At the restaurant the server couldn't give us any recommendations as he said some of the menu was new. Then when our pasta came, specially the ravioli, the size was soo small (like 4 pieces). The server never told us that serving size is small so we should order more. When we asked the server, he said it's new menu so he can't do anything but will take the feedback.. The dessert wasn't impressive either and guess what there was no candle to celebrate the bday! I just don't know what happened. It all started nice but as the evening went on the service and good value kept going down and noise level kept going up. What was planned to be a nice evening turned up to be unhappy night!

A fantastic dining experience from start to finish. The food was flawless; staff were attentive, friendly and genuine; and ambience was intimate yet relaxed. Perfect for a weekend date night or a low-maintenance weekday meal. Definitely going back, especially on a Tuesday, when they offer half price bottles of wine!

The food was delicious and the service was amazing. We were looking for a small Italian bistro – this was a perfect place to have dinner for two. We went on a Monday night and they offered a delicious prefix dinner menu & wine bottle specials.

Our first time at L'Unita was a great experience. We had dinner on a Tuesday night-- which was half price wine night. What a treat to indulge in some of the amazing wines we would not have afforded at full price! I am a wine person and the list was not only extensive, but also offered some unique options. The sommelier recommended a winner and matched with the pasta, we felt like we were in Italy.

After Giulietta sitting at the chef table we discovered that this restaurant is its sister.

We’ve walked by it a number of times living in the area and finally came in and sat at the bar.

Great food great atmosphere great music. The place is alive and backs it up with great service as well

Made another Rez on our way out and without question will be a regular here.

As a matter of fact I’d go back tonight if it was open
