Food was bland, garlic bread was just wonderbread and a slice of rye bread (very strange). Servers seemed very busy, but there was only four tables. Dirty glassware sat on tables for the entire hour we were there. Our server was nice. We were seated by the manager who didn't give us menus or tell us about the online menu. The pasta was cold. The wine was good. Would stay away from this place until they can figure it out.

I expected a bit better service on Valentine’s Day than what we got. I was on a date and I wasn’t asked for a refill on my drink, however my partner was. I felt completely ignored and left out. I’ve never experienced anything like it. We also were waiting a long time for our waiter to come back and see how we were doing. The ambience was okay. Food is decent for the price

The minestrone soup I ordered took forever to arrive. And then not even 5 minutes later I got my main course... very bad timing. I had the crusted cod over noodles and it was good, but really nothing to write home for. My server pretty much abandoned me after he delivered the main course.

Service was wonderful. Very accommodating too - i am a little bit disabled, so the server offered to get me a selection from the bread bar (I love bread!). I felt very safe, the tables were well separated. It’s the first time I’ve been out for a meal since March! And the food was delicious.

I had the penne prosciutto arugula which was taste and creamy with the goat cheese. The arugula was raw but when mixed into the dish it became slightly wilted and delicious with the other textures. Grilling your own bread with 3 different spreads to choose from was dun and didn’t take but a few minutes. I would suggest that the bread come out 5 minutes before the entrees. My husband had the carbonara which came out lukewarm with a raw yolk on top. Being a chef himself he did not think the egg would cook enough in lukewarm pasta so removed the yolk. I would suggest the yolk be mixed into a hotter noodle and then served.

Kept social distancing well and table arrangement was done nicely. Our server was easy going and very considerate when my 2.5yrs old son ordered a juice, she put it in a paper cup with lid and straw instead of glassware. Foods suggestions were spot on. Service was flawless throughout the night. Our first dining in since pandemic and we had great time.

Service was a little slow and they failed to mention a few items were not available. The waiter was friendly and the restaurant is beautiful. Food was just okay. The pizza was not hot and the sausage sandwich would be better served on a bun instead of sliced and on flatbread. They served us some bread and butter which was stale and not appetizing. They do offer you a flattop grill to toast the bread, but other customers were there and I didn’t want to get up and stand there with my bread. Seemed a weird concept to me.

Great value with generous portions, including the kids menu items. Kids eat free with each adult entrée on weekends, which is an outstanding deal and was more than enough for my 7 year old kids to share a single kids meal. The service was exceptional. Our experience was outstanding and I would highly recommend it for any get together whether a dinner date, family outing or group activity.

The service was slow to start. Realize because of COVID help scheduling could be an issue. Food was good but the breads were a grocery store off shelf variety. I know food service so know great ready bake products are available. Would probably not be revisiting this restaurant!
