Great night with friends. We ordered 3 of the specials (salad, veal and fish) and were not disappointed. First time we had dessert and it won't be the last. Excellent all around.

Food was average to me. One out of four really enjoyed their dinner. My wife had the chicken which did not have a lot of flavor. My daughter had the shrimp and pasta with the shrimp having that iodine taste indicating less than fresh. My veal dish was just ok and my son had the pork chop which was very good. Ambience was good except our table was right off the kitchen which created extra noise traffic around us. Service was very good. Our experience was not as high as the rating we looked up when booking.

Terrible experience. Very unaccommodating and not helpful. Waited for over 90 minutes for our meals and then the owner comes to the table to tell us it would be even longer. We wound up leaving without dinner and she actually charged us for two salads. Nothing like I’ve experienced before.

Excellent food! All of us really enjoyed our entrees. And ate every bite. So good! The only thing we didn’t like so much was the noise level. It’s so small that it’s hard to have a conversation without raising your voice. But even with that, we will definitely be back!

The service was amazing and we just love the decor. It’s so quaint. We had the poached pear app, osso bucco special and a rigatoni dish. They were all so flavorful and wed highly recommend all of them.

We were seated at a table close to kitchen and hostess unwilling to change our table despite restaurant having many tables available. Something about disrupting their reservation system….guess they prioritize their convenience over customer service. Good food but poor customer serve!

Weather was cool the evening we were there, but the air conditioning was blowing full blast right on our table. I can understand wanting to keep the air circulation, but it was really cold and we were close to the front door, which was also open. Was told they couldn’t do anything about it. So bring a sweater.

Food was very good, service was fine, but I will echo another reviewer; one of our party ordered the pasta/shrimp dish (Notre Dame?) There were three shrimp on a large bed of pasta. At $30, that’s about $10 per shrimp. The person eating the dinner commented they would have liked at least one more shrimp. I understand restaurants have had a tough time and margins are tight, but that is a little ridiculous.
