We love this restaurant but. . my meal was not hot. .and the offered pepper never arrived. Love that the salads are plated on cold plates but this time my salad was only lettuce with two small tomatoes. . in the past the mixed salad had more content. They have been in the past consistently good so this was perhaps an off night.

Food was really good. Penne was really fresh and sausage came in huge pieces. Chocolate mousse was to die for. All in all a good experience

Our waiter was so attentive and friendly! The food was amazing. The gnocchi was divine, and the limon gelato is a must try!!

We were also graciously given a complimentary frangelico with a little chocolate treat! Best meal I’ve had in a very long time. Highly recommend!

This is the second time I've dined here but the first where the service was lacking; it took an hour to get our appetizer and when I asked the waiter to check on the status, he came back to tell me that he didn't have any information. The entire meal took 2 hours; it would have been longer if we'd decided to stay for dessert but we decided to cut our anniversary dinner short because considering how long it took for the appetizer and meal, I was concerned that ordering dessert and then waiting for the bill would have added far too much extra time to the evening. I also noticed the waiter was happy to spend time chatting with another table instead of checking in with us...frequent diners, maybe? Well, if you want infrequent diners to become regular customers, ignoring them is not the way to do it.

The food was great, the service was definitely lacking. Were they understaffed for whatever reason? Perhaps, but in that case why not let the patrons know ahead of time? Waiting as long as we did wouldn't have been a problem if I'd been warned there might be delays, it was the lack of communication which bothered me the most.

Wow! Looking forward to returning to this restaurant. They don’t cheap out on portion sizes like a lot of other Italian restaurants. The food is tasty and looks good. The wait staff are friendly and attentive. Lots of parking available. Very cozy place. Bravo!

Appies were good and hot. Pasta with clams was tasty. Need more bread to dip into the sauce at the end!
