Thursday at 7:00pm very very very loud. Very difficult to have conversation unless you raise voice. Salad was drowning in dressing. For $9 there was hardly any lettuce but plenty of dressing, 4 croutons......really pitiful. Tasted lousy. We both had veal dishes, which were ok, just ok. The large rigatoni on the side was a little much compared to delicate... More

Made reservations a month prior to date, and CONFIRMED my reservation a few days before and i was TOLD/GUARANTEED that our party would be on the ground floor due to guests with limited mobility. We get there, and we're told ''it's not in the system''. Really? Thankfully I remembered the name of the person that I organized this with, and... More

So I brought my own wine ($48 bottle) which the waitress managed to break the cork in it as she was opening it .... The food was decent and was nicely plated, the prices however were much... More

Nice evening with friends, ambiance is ok, I took the entree of Beef tartare with fries as a side orders, it was good, they took pastas which they said it was ok. The service could be a litlle better as this is not a cheap place. I heard a server complaining which is bad and when we left went through... More

This restaurant is expensive for the quality of food. Yes, you can bring your own wine....but they charge a lot more for food, thus making up for lost revenue. Nothing is free in the restaurant business..... The food is just OK....not the finesse of a good Italian restaurant. The table d'hote is not a great bargain .....all you get is... More

The Prosciutto di Parma e Rucola Pizza was excellent as was the Pesto Al Basilico e Crema. I don't think you can go wrong with the many options.

Brunch food wasn't amazing at all. Nothing special or beyond normal in the Egg station. Pasta stations were nicely presented but too much sauce added to all dishes. The server was very polite but the hostess was so rude and she barely found us a spot for our disabled guest. Hostess never tried to accommodate our request to find a... More

We came here for a golden wedding anniversary. What a mistake! Everyone's food was too salty. I had ordered the pollo con funghi and it was soo salty I could feel my arteries hardening. My aunt left all her pasta there it was soo salty. Service is slow and one of the waiters needed an attitude adjustment. We will NEVER... More
