Absolutely wonderful! My boyfriend and I came here for our 6 year anniversary and we received the best service. Food was amazing and managers came to our table to ensure that we were having a great experience overall. Would definitely recommend for a romantic evening!

My boyfriend and I went to L'Unità for our first time last weekend and we will easily be returning. The food is so delicious (try the cacio e pepe fritters!!!!), the drinks were great, and the dessert was amazing. Our bartender (whose name I unfortunately do not know) was very attentive, educated on the menu, accommodating, and provided a great dining experience. Also, it was great to see my dear friend Angie working that night, she is a great person and an excellent server. L'Unità serves truly great Italian food - I will be back!

My girlfriend and I just needed a night out!
We had looked all over for a place near our hotel (Hotel 89), and we both decided this was the place for us.
From the moment we walked through the door, we were treated as if they had known us forever. We had a bit of trouble tackling the wine list, but with a bit of help our server made that decision easy as well.
The food was remarkable, the wine was perfect for us, and the butterscotch dessert was truly incredible.
I sincerely want to thank you and your staff for making this date night truly memorable!!

My husband and I had dinner recently at L'Unità Enoteca and were very pleased with both the food and the service. Our server, Angela, was most attentive, answered all of our questions and even took the time to speak to the chef about a recipe for me. My husband ordered the calamari as an appetizer and declared it to be among the best he has had (and he orders calamari everywhere we go!) I had the Caesar salad and really enjoyed it. The restaurant dresses salads lightly, which is definitely to my taste. We both had the Cavatelli Pugliese (delicious) and shared the gelato (hazelnut is best- although we tried all three :) ) Both of us had wine as well. I ordered the Sauvignon Blanc which was new to me, but I enjoyed it. My husband had the Montepulciano. Our reservation was for 7:30pm on a Saturday night which turned out to be a pretty good time. The early diners were just leaving so the noise level was manageable for most of our dinner. What I mean by that is that we could still have a conversation without yelling at one another. By the time we were almost finished however, the restaurant was, yet again, completely full. At this point, the noise level rose and conversation became more difficult. However, we were finished by this point (9:15) so we paid the bill and left. We would go back again for sure.

Noise level was too high. The grilled branzino was oily and the sides were unpleasant. The antipasti was very good and my son enjoyed his pasta.

The staff here are above reproach, attentive, very good and know how to cater to their guests. The restaurant is quaint and small, but doesn't feel restrictive. The food was good, well made and tasted very good, although one of the dishes was a little too seasoned for my taste, but overall I would recommend. The wine list is extensive and well suited for the fare served here. I would definitely revisit this establishment.

I requested a booth and was told that it was "half price wine Tuesday"... so no guarantees.

Very pleased that the request was honoured upon arrival.

As a repeat customer, I appreciated the gesture.

Many thanks.

Great experience, but I’m sad to find out they are not offering their bread anymore. I went there mostly for the bread, so was a bit disappointed. Other than this, the food and service were great.

Great salad courses to start. Pastas were good but not outstanding. Service was excellent. We were originally put at a table in some sort of back hallway of the restaurant but complained about the location. We were relocated but restaurant should not book that high traffic silly location.

We love L'Unita Enoteca and especially enjoy Tuesdays for half-price wine night. Marco is the sommelier and he and his team are just great. The food is good, always reliable and we love the vibe of a busy place that feels like you could be sitting in Italy.
