Al Vento is one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants. Tonight we had the bucatini and it was so delicious, along with their wonderful bread. We love our 4 block walk there and we love getting greeted as regulars. It is definitely a place to try....More

Could pass on this place next time. Nothing special, over priced, slow service, had to ask for coffee refills, meal with eggs and goat cheese was so so. LOUD on patio!
