    Unfortunately, the evening did not start off well. We were told that we had to wait for our reservation for atleast 10-15 min after our original time, even though we showed up early. Then after waiting, we were told another 15 min. Noticed that they seated other groups that were walk ins so I guess they were given priority. We had two young children who were starving so we decided to leave and just as we did, the manager came running after us and asked us to stay. They turned around a table and even through a pizza in the oven for the kids, no charge. The food was good, not great. Felt a little rushed as it was now kind of late for dinner and they were getting ready to close. Wouldn’t mind giving them another try but will likely favor other restaurants over this one.

    Delicious food and wine. Love to see how busy this family run restaurant is on a Saturday night. Great in house made pasta. Reasonable wine selection. Looks like they have a very nice private room which I hadn’t noticed before.

    Went here for the first time on Valentine's Day. They had the tables all packed together in the main dining room and we were practically right on top of the other customers. Despite making a reservation online, our table seemed like an afterthought as it was right by the entranceway where there was heavy foot traffic. Service was poor, we probably saw our waiter four times total and it took a long time for us to get our check. Our table didn't receive bread despite them setting out butter for us and many of the tables next to us had bread. The experience was not worth the price and I will not be going back again, on Valentine's day or otherwise. The food was alright.

    Have been here several times and was always attentive service. Was so catastrophically understaffed on Valentine’s Day it was almost comedic. Got a drink and dinner ordered quick enough, after that we were on our own. Plates were empty easily 15-20 minutes before an offer for dessert. Staff looked tremendously overwhelmed.

    Overall I was very pleased with my experience in terms of food and service. The ambience was a little loud but tolerable and timing of delivery of courses by the waiter could be improved a little. I ordered the fried calamari appetizer, minestrone soup and lamb chops. The calamari was excellent in taste, lightly battered and lightly seasoned, just how I like it. The minestrone soup was okay, average. The lamb chops were perfectly seasoned and doneness was exactly as I ordered, medium. They were delicious, I never had better anywhere else. The artichoke and brussel sprout accompaniment was just right for the dish. My friends and I truly enjoyed the experience and we all said we would definitely come back again. Two thumbs up!

    After the server took our order, she took our salad forks since we did not order a salad. Very strange and we wondered what diners ended up with them. The bread that came with the meal was so soft that it reminded us of something from the grocery store that they forgot to crisp up in the oven before serving. The red sauce on my pasta had absolutely no flavor, was sweet tasting and not at all like a marinara. My husband ordered eggplant parm and was totally unimpressed with the food. We won't be going back.

    We enjoyed the Christmas Eve specials that were outstanding. The sea bass was done perfectly. The sea scallops in a rice dish were fantastic with good sized scallops. The lobster pasta in a red sauce was perfect. The crap cakes were very tasty but could have used bigger chunks of crab.

    The food here is top notch. Everything is cooked to order and the veal is hand-pounded extra thin. We’ve had the homemade meatballs that taste like the ones grandma used to make, the branzino served with a delicious caper sauce, and veal parmigiana which blows Maggiano’s out of the water!

    We have always loved an evening out at this great restaurant. Last night must have been an off night for them. Our waiters service was not very good including forgetting my meal. We ended up getting owner to get my meal and it was to go at that point as the rest of the group was done eating. Just not what we are accustomed to there.
