Creative Italian fare, with great service. Our waiter was attentive while leaving plenty of space to enjoy our meal. Everything we ordered was well executed, and we thoroughly enjoyed the Steely Dan radio as background music. You can tell the owners/management care about what they are doing. Great place for a date or a group, we definitely plan to revisit!

Food and service was excellent. Ordered Squid ink pasta with shrimp and Black bass. Delicious. Issue- We were seated at a two top that was very small and so close to other tables that their conversations were a distraction for us.

Wonderful food and service! All employees did a wonderful job tending to each table in our area and our server was especially great. The food was outstanding and the timeliness of receiving drinks and all food was about the expected wait time. Will definitely be going back!

It was my boyfriend’s birthday and although I did mention it in my open table reservation- no one at the restaurant asked me about it and it was not acknowledge.

Big fan of this place, it never disappoints. The food is genuinely good - I've yet to have something I don't like. Not a huge fan of the calamari, but the other apps are great - we always get the butternut squash ravioli as an appetizer, it's fantastic. Definitely recommend!

Food was great. Server was extremely rude. At first we thought he was very attentive and then we realized he was trying to rush us out. We had a reservation, so there was no reason for them to need our table. We also had ordered a bottle of wine and were trying to enjoy it. Our food came out very quickly, which is fine, except that it came out seconds after the bread that they brought to our table. The server put the check on the table only 30 minutes after we had walked through the door. Then, as we sat finishing the bottle of wine, he actually started wiping down the table as we were sitting there. He also kept filling up our glasses when they did not need to be filled, as if that would make us drink the wine faster. At one point I had a wine glass that was almost filled up to the brim. I'm sorry, but they should not have let us make the reservation if they didn't have room for us, and no one should expect you to be able to drink a bottle of wine between two people within 45 minutes. I would have liked to come back because the food was great, but I never wanted to be treated that rudely ever again.

Excellent food and service. The calamari and seafood appetizer was perfectly done with a very light,crispy crust. The butternut squash ravioli was rich and buttery. The rack of lamb special was the best I have ever had. And to top things off the white chocolate bread pudding was excellent, although try it with vanilla ice cream as opposed to the chocolate. Even the house white wines were exceptional. I will be back!
