    Our server Laurie did an excellent job of taking care of us. Our drinks before the meal were just right. We had the Artichoke soup it was good but it could have used a touch more salt. The star of the table was the chicken Alfredo the other dining with us went for the veal parm. Over all it was a good night.

    It took about 40 minutes from order for 2 people to table, and the restaurant wasn't full. People came and left before we had food. Waiter didn't bring ordered coffee with dessert. Expect more from this level of restaurant.

    Upon entering we stood almost in the door way as staff was walking damn near on top of us. The Hostess literally sat people who came in behind us in a table we said we would like to dine at. We’re placed at a table in front of the stairs. Food was okay at best and the steak was not worth $75. I can’t say I will be back.

    All I have to say it was amazing .. The owner sat with us for 30 minutes even though he had a large party that was coming in right next to us . He was calm and very cool . He interacted with his staff with respect and he was communicating with them what he was expecting . The music was great and the service was impeccable. ( Sue ) yep she was great . The food was on point . We love this place .

    Our server Grant told us he was hanging in there. Since he turned 30 last week he was foggy. He didn't tell us the appetizer specials because we heard part of them from the table next to us. We asked for a glass of Joel got to be served with the meal. Grant said he needed to be reminded and did not write it down. This was my first time at this restaurant. We said we were on a date but we were seated next to a party of 8 and and ac intake vent. The food was great!

    We were able to get a last minute reservation for 5:30 on a Saturday, and we sure are glad that we did! Service was incredible, food and wine were delicious. Could tell the minute you walked in that you were in an old-school Italian restaurant that locals flock to. Owner knew everyone that walked in. Just fantastic! The see-queens will be back! 🪩

    My fiancée and I came here for our anniversary, just taking a chance on a Monday evening, and it’s our new favorite! Every part of the meal was delicious, from the drinks, to the apps, the bread, the entrees, and the dessert! I couldn’t recommend this place enough. I was actually upset that I got full because I had to stop eating! Oh, and yes, it’s just as good the next day!

    An excellent Italian food experience. 3 of 4 of us got the veal, all prepared differently, all were wonderful. Only complaint is space. The place is packed in and the bench seating was not terribly comfortable. Frankly, the food is so good they should consider expanding/moving to bigger digs, they would certainly grow into it.

    Our first time at this nice place...our friends had been several times and recommended it. Nice, clean, safe, interesting Italian style food, and a bar. They were very busy when we were there and there was a big party starting in the upstairs dining room. So the place was too noisy for me, and the wait staff was overloaded, but we loved it anyway. We shared the eggplant w/crabmeat appetizer and each had their fish special, then finished with a shared tiramisu, everything was really delicious. We can't wait to return.

    Rated on just the food, this restaurant would be a 5! Marinara was the best I have ever had! Really special! Veal, Italian sausage, and shrimp with pasta first rate. Portion size was good also. Wait staff is friendly, but not polished. Saw a waiter wiping off a plate with his sleeve. My biggest problem is with the noise. Three tables were seated at approximately the same time as we were. All were unmanerly boisterous. It was so loud that we could not even have a conversation across the table. I am talking city bus noise loud! Will go back, but will try much earlier before the heavy drinkers and self absorbed shouters have arrived.

    Overall, the food had very good flavor. I found the veal a little tough. We found it noisy because we were given a table in the bar right by the restaurant’s entrance. We were surprised when the waitress told us she added a twenty percent tip on our bill and said we could add more if we found her service outstanding. (We were a table of five. We found this unusual for a small, family dinner.)
