Four of us spent a relaxing afternoon noshing on a variety of tasty appetizers—Buffalo pizza, octopus, meatballs, calamari, and dessert. The service was attentive when needed, otherwise, they left us along to enjoy each other's company. Despite the 3 1/2 hours we spent there, we never felt pressured to leave. It was an enjoyable afternoon with good food.

I booked an outdoor table for 9 to entertain important business associates from out of of town. When we arrived on time, but they offered us a table inside. When I objected, the receptionist claimed that we were never promised an outdoor table which was a total lie. Food service was terrible. 3 meals arrived together, 5 minutes later 2 more arrives .After a long argument with the manager the rest of the dishes were brought to the table 15 minutes later. by then all the earlier dishes were stone cold.

The management offers no apologies except saying that they have two kitchens and it is hard to coordinate orders.

Food quality was no where close to their usual standards.

We arrived for a late lunch at Cecconi's (4 adults, 5 children). The restaurant had a lot of tables available both in the outdoor patio and in the main room inside (c. 60% empty). Despite this the hostess insisted to usher towards a dark corner inside while we were tempted by the more luminous patio. We had to bargain ou way out of the dark room for some time before getting the seats we wanted.
The food was more pleasant than the welcome experience and the service was nimble.
The bill came higher as we expected, probably more than the London Cecconi's we were used to.
I will probably come back.

We had reservations for 5:00. We were seated in a nice spot. When they gave us the menus, we said that we wanted the happy hour menus to start. Apparently this was a huge issue and required that we move to a different table, so we did. Then after some food off of the happy hour menu, we asked for the dinner menus. The waitress went and got the hostess who told us we had to move again. She said that the table we were at was a large table (there were only four of us and six chairs at the table) and we needed to move to a smaller table. If this was the case, why did they move us from the first table? There were at least ten empty tables. My daughter nicely told her that we were not going to move again and a ridiculous argument ensued. This hostess has no people skills whatsoever. She was saying that it wasn’t her, it was “corporate.” The whole thing was illogical. Happy hour was over at six. We wanted dinner. There were plenty of tables for other customers. I have never had such a rude and silly experience at a restaurant in my life.

Great ambiance for sure! Definitely a good vibe. Nice patio setting at the front of the restaurant. Our server was great! He was very friendly, fun and professional. Really enjoyed the interaction. We started with the Tuscan kale salad with apples and almonds, delicious! Next course was the octupus which while good didn’t really have that sear that you like to see and taste with octupus. Last course was the pasta which was chittara which is sort of a square spaghetti shaped pasta. It had a light tomato sauce along with octupus and sea urchin. It was good but tough to pick up the sea urchin taste. Enjoyed it overall.
