Exceptional service thanks to Giovanni. We’d return on the service alone. Thankfully the food was exactly what we were hoping for and great price to food quality.

We had the Caesar salad, calabrese pizza, lasagna, mushroom tagliatelle, & tiramisu.

Looking forward to our next visit.

Not great Italian food.. the butternut squash ravioli was hard and cold and the butter sauce was not buttery.. like at all. It tasted like broth.

Service was great. Entrées very good. Found the carpaccio was not very thinly sliced and very tough. Pizza was meh.

Patio needs at least one heater. Maybe a proper garbage can in the bathroom instead of a bucket. No toilet paper in any stalls when we went at 10pm

I would return.

The pasta was undercooked. The music was so loud that I couldn’t hear the waiters speaking or have a conversation with my friend.

Arrived on time but table was late due to earlier diners but were looked after ok while waiting. Sauce for carbonara was separated and meal salty. Other dinners with our table were ok. No tiramisu available for dessert despite being on the menu. Overall ok and average could have been better

Mediocre. Some dishes were okay, the seafood pasta was awful: rubbery shrimp and mussels that were still closed. Well meaning, friendly but amateur service. Wine list was embarrassing. Definitely will not return.

Was served raw chicken. Staff didn’t seem to phased by it. Was told it wasn’t cooked because “the piece was thicker than normal” although the chicken was completely raw on the edges as well as throughout as if it had just been breaded and plated raw.

Once again we are sorry that this happened. We immediately made you another plate and gave you and the other two ladies free dessert and coffee. What else would you like us to have done?

We were a party of four celebrating a girl’s night out. The food was incredible, and service was amazing. We sat outside on the patio which was great. We had apps, pasta, and pizza and everything was delicious. Awesome authentic Italian!!

Just a small since we are in a pandemic, most of the staff barely wore their masks and seemed to have them off while delivering the food to the table and put them back on while they walked away from the table. Kind of defeats the purpose but I would recommend the staff to fully be wearing their masks at all points while guests are in their restaurant or outside on the patio. Pizza was delicious!

Great table right at the window. There were 5 of us. We shared 3 appetizers : calamari/shrimp, bruschetta and olives - and fresh and delicious. Everyone ordered a different dinner and all raved about their dish. Service was attentive and prompt. Lovely staff. We will be going back. Great portions and prices were reasonable

This was a terrible experience. My pasta had an egg shell in it. The arancini was served to us cold, possibly frozen. Pasta was not cooked throughly.
