    When we arrived with our reservation, we were directed to a very small table near the front entrance and right next to a large group of diners. I was asked if the table was OK, and I asked to be seated in the other room. I was told that was not possible. Not sure why I was asked if the table was OK if I had no option? We celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary dinner with a loud group next to us and customers and delivery services coming and going past our table. While the food was good, I was very disappointed in the table and the attitude of the man who seated us. We will not return to this restaurant.

    We had just arrived in Buffalo and were excited to start our vacation. We arrived for our reservation at 645. We didn’t get our appetizer until after 8:00. Entrees arrived at the same time. Food was ok, but not worth the wait. We won’t be coming back.

    The food was excellent from the mushroom pizza, roasted beet salad to the veal special with risotto and fresh vegetable to the 4 desserts between the 3 of us. The wine selection was excellent as well. I would say the service was friendly and not overbearing. Overall a great place to eat and similar ambiance to a trattoria in Italy right here in Williamsville. The owner and staff were very welcoming. We will be back again and again.

    They were having a busy Sunday evening with some staffing shortages but the food was excellent and the (understandable) slow service made for a nice time with the family. Will definitely go back!

    Our reserved table was ready for us when we arrived. The server was not very pleasant and definitely not helpful with explaining the specials nor the menu selections. The service definitely declined as the night went on. The food was of poor quality. The bolognese had too much pasta and very little ragu as was the penne aroma. You couldn't find the sausage. The worst part was the salad. It was such a small portion. For the price, the overall experience was a complete disappointment. We were a party of seven and the sentiments were the same. You lost local customers.

    Had a wonderful Sunday Supper here. Pasta was absolutely delicious. Father had lamb chops…ate every bite! Bread to table was very warm and fragrant. Wonderful server…new..Jessica…very pleasant. Wine, delicious and icy cold. All in all, would go back in a minute. The decor leaves something to be desired and the dead plants at the entrance had us worried, but luckily the food was really really terrific! If I was the Chef I’d get on the case of the front of house to spruce the entrance up.

    Waited 25 minutes for a simple salad appetizer and 60 minutes for entrees before leaving. Restaurant was oversold and understaffed. Waitress, Hannah, was rude and arrogant stating customers should understand waiting during graduation period and expect delays. No Hannah, don’t seat customers that can’t be served in a timely fashion. Have dined here for 4 years and will not return.

    Just ok. It was very awkward. Our first time there and last. We had a reservation, and they were not busy. Even with that, we were seated at a table behind the bar right next to the host station. It was terribly awkward. We felt we couldn’t really have a conversation without the staff hearing every word. It really felt like we were seated in a service area. We overheard all the phone calls coming in, and conversations among the staff about other customers. But then the service was very slow. Our server never asked us if we wanted more drinks - which we did. My husbands meal was not prepared as he requested. The quality of the food was not worth the price. It was just ok. Overall very expensive for the food and service we received.

    Food was very good. They were very short staffed and were trying hard but the waits were long for everyone and people werent served quickly enough. IT wasnt for lack of trying but people sat at tables for hours. the good news is the food was good but the service was struggling to keep up. Id order take out for sure
