    Always a great experience! Beautiful patio, the inside renovation looks incredible too. The food was on point- we had the Cesar, beef tips, and nonnas spaghetti! Perfect date spot!!

    Food was delicious, some portions were small. Beautiful outdoor seating area, valet at 10$ to walk ten feet is overpriced.

    We were greeted by a new sign sharing that the valet fee was now $10.00 which we thought was excessive. We asked and were happy to be seated on the beautiful patio. We found the table to be a little small and uneven. The new leather covered menus were greasy and dirty from former diners. They need to be wiped down between guests. Our server was pleasant but very soft spoken - we asked her to repeat the specials for the evening - but she was so soft-spoken we could not hear her. She seemed very inexperienced. The unexciting bread basket was plopped on our table along with a stack of plates - the top plate had oil and Parmesan cheese which dripped over the plates underneath. We were short one set of silverware that eventually showed up. The food was fair. My husband’s Bronzino was dry, my chicken piccata was ok. Our friends had the prawns and veal saltimbocca and said their food was decent. Our friend ordered a glass of wine to be served with his dinner, we needed to practically beg for it. The dessert menu was unexciting. The server began offering to bring the dessert menus while half of us were still eating our dinner.We left and had ice cream at a local Dairy Queen. This was our second experience under the new ownership. It was a huge downgrade from the restaurant we have really enjoyed over many years. It is now sadly off our list.

    We were originally shown to a table for two in a room where at least one party was going on. It was noisy. We asked for a different table and went out on the patio. It’s very lovely outside, kind of a secret garden. And it was a very beautiful evening. Our salad, drinks and bread came very quickly. Then there was a long wait before our entrees appeared. Our waiter kept us informed about the wait, thanked us for our patience. When our dinners arrived, they were hot and fresh and very delicious. One of us had lamb chops, the other lasagne. Then we split a slice of lemoncello cake for dessert. Other than the wait for dinner being a little too long, we had a very nice time.

    6:30 reservation. Sat us in a very noisy room. We asked to be moved, as many other guests asked as well. Seated outside around 7:15.asked several times for set ups and plates. Ordered appetizer , took around 30 minutes. Ordered dinner. Was told kitchen was backed up. They brought us a salad to appease us. Was then told basically we were not getting dinner. Offered dessert. At 8:30 we left. Many other guests had similar issues. No dinner. 2 wasted hours. Not going back anytime soon!

    Very disappointing service and food. Our entrees were cold and the server brought us the wrong desert. With all that, you would think they would do something to make it up to us, but nothing! Very disappointed! Oh, and the dinner took 3.5 hours. Ugggg.

    I loved the ambience of sitting outside in their magnificent patio on a beautiful summer evening. However, we weren’t crazy about the veal piccata and the veal saltimboca. Both were tough and not thin. Caesar salad and caprese were very good. Nice house Chardonnay. Good waiter.

    Top of the line service! From host, to waiter, to food runner, to bus help. Very professional and kind. The outdoor seating was comfortable and the setting was enchanting with beautiful flowers, trees, statues, and fountains, that made for a very relaxed atmosphere. The soft lights in and around the trees after sunset were romantic. The recorded music that included Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, and Elvis Presley were the cherry on top! The food was very delicious and well prepared.
