A bit pricey for what you get. I had better food at the Villa at half the price.

I felt the price was high for the portion size. Did not feel it was reasonable you priced. I had lasagna and the slice was very small. Cocktails price was high priced as well. Probably won’t come back.

Food was very good. We ordered the calamari appetizer and it was a little different. They were like calamari french fries. Kind of thick and square. We prefer the rings ourselves, but everything else was really good

The service was excellent to my surprise. The food was delicious served a temperature the way we had asked. The ambience is very pleasant the selection on the menu was diversified. Something for everyone. The bus the tables nonstop, the manager came around to check to see quality was up to par. Absolutely one of the best dining experiences we’ve had in a while.

Great decoration, great place for a romantic dinner, but not too over the top for a family dinner. Fantastic food selection, focused on traditional Italian dishes. The wine list had a great list of Napa, Italian and other global wines. Prices for food and wine were very reasonable for the quality. The owner came out to greet us and is very involved in to the day to day. I would highly recommend!

Been coming here for many years and this is the first time we have been disappointed at the food. My wife's steak was very well done, was ordered medium. My steak was very tough, yet cooked to the proper temperature. Service was excellent.

The prime rib was tasty, juicy, and cooked to perfection, as was my spouse's burger. We will go a bit later next time to enjoy the lights and music on the patio.
Maybe after the sun sets, the bees and mosquitoes will be less of a problem, also.

I was a bit late so my guests were seated but did request a table move due to the noise in the main dining room. Due to where we were moved (the bar area) the waitress was a bit stretched. Although the waitress was trying, she should have asked for assistance and quite frankly the manager should have been more observant. The manager stood chatting at the bar for a really long time and if I am to the point that I have to get up...that's a problem. I should not have had to go ask for more water, oil and wine...we were the only table in the bar. Had she glanced around she would have realized we were watching to gain eye contact & nod that we needed assistance. Even the bartender failed to look up/around...had he...he could have told the manager standing there we were trying to get attention without having to get up. As a ex waitress a manager should have known with where we were seated the waitress may need support and even assigned a busser to check in. Once I approached the manager the response was immediate and appreciated however after that it was all back on our waitress again. (and Covid staffing cannot be used an excuse.) The meal was good and the overall evening good. I will definitely go back but given the caliber of dining and price point of this establishment my expectations will remain a bit higher. In fact, the atmosphere and impressive past visits is why I chose to bring out of town guests here.
