Food was hit and miss:

My gnocchi was perfectly cooked, and the sauce was well matched. I ordered the lobster gnocchi. I was slightly disappointed that I only got a small lobster tail and no other lobster chunks.

My partner ordered the orecchiette, it was okay but not the most seasoned pasta. It was not worth the 20 dollars.

Service:
Our server was very attentive and friendly. She offered to bring us a basket of bread for free instead of charging us for it.

Ambience:
The ambience was sleek and modern with some rustic touches like wooden shelving. They had a seating area to the right of the door with very interesting chairs. The chairs had unique metal elements on them.

Overall:
Would recommend this place to a friend if looking for a quiet place for a date. Order the food you would like to have, as you don't know if you'll like it unless you try it!

In general, this was a nice spot.

But my pizza was soupy. We got a classic margarita pizza for the table and it was wet and soggy.

Knowing this is located in woodbridge, there is a certain quality standard for Italian food. The pizza really let me down and I was disappointed that it came out the way it did.

However, my seafood pasta was perfectly cooked. Our whole table ate and loved their main courses.

Just don't get the pizza - it's awful.

Food lacked real flavors, pizza would benefit better with Buffalo mozzarella or fresh mozzarella.. the restaurant claims it’s a wine bar but has a very minimal wine selection with very low inventory. What they have working for them is good sever .. Sebastian and a tasty cocktail… my

First time here to celebrate friends wedding anniversary. Excellent food and service. Nicoletta was professional, personable and very knowledgable about the menu and wine offerings. Started with some great cocktails, Negronis, Aperol Spritz and Lavender Mist. All were amazing! For antipasti, pasta and carne had burrata and fritto misto, tagliolini cacio e pepe and the gnocchi all'aragosta. We then shared the entree special (grilled lamp chops with zucchini and eggplant). Everything was served piping hot and was delicious. Courses were also served at a perfect pace to enjoy our drinks and wine. We did not have room for dessert but truly the only suggestion would be to have some homemade dessert selections added to the menu to compliment the authentic menu choices. Overall an excellent meal and service for the special celebration and would definitely go back even though it was 1 hour drive for us to get there!

Amazing, food from amazing chef, great atmosphere, but little bit tight . Chairs are set up so close to each other and litter ally you can not move especially when you have kids .
The waiter was so pushy and speaking very fast . He tries to push you as eat and leaaaaaave . No kids Menu .
I am not recommending this place for someone that has english language as a second or third or fourth.

The place was nice and the service was good.
But the food was terrible. Everything we got was extremely bland.
We had higher expectations for this place due to the reviews, but didn’t like it.

Something to consider. I’ve driven passed that plaza for 20 years and didn’t know there was a restaurant there. A better sign might draw more traffic!

As lovely an evening as we could have had during the Red Zone with 10 people in the restaurant. Our server, Sebastian informed us of the specials, which were delicious and reasonably priced. He was as sociable as the conversation presented itself. He paid attention to detail and was a good server.
We would go back in a heartbeat.
