    It was just okay. Food was pretty good but not over the top which I would expect given the price point. Service was extremely attentive and outstanding. The dining room is kind of plain.

    This was a first time visit for all of us . Two guests were from Chicago and very much “foodies”. Everyone loved their meals. The three of us split an appetizer and salad, ordered different pasta entrees and shared dessert. Everything, from the unhurried but attentive service, to the ample wine and cocktail list , to the food itself, couldn’t have been better.

    There were too much sage on the ravioli, making it tasted overpowering. The menu was limited. The cocktails were our favorite

    Celebrated my husband’s birthday. Cocktails, food, and wine were all very good and service was excellent. Atmosphere started off elegant and reserved, but as the room filled it got very loud (we were in the large room on the left). There are acoustic panels on the ceiling but it really needs more or something better. For an upscale restaurant it should be a lot quieter. Given that there are 2 separate rooms in the restaurant plus the bar in the middle, I’d suggest labeling one of them as a “fine dining room” and the other as a “casual social space” to help patrons tailor their behavior and give everyone the experience they’d like. We’ll likely visit again, but I’ll be sure to ask if one of the rooms tends to be quieter. For a romantic dinner with my love, I’d rather not have to shout across the table.

    Restaurant is beautiful well designed food is in great proportions. By that I mean, not overly heavy or multiple calories. Could sit down have a comfortable dinner and not feel stuffed. Dessert was outstanding.

    We really liked our experience at Senti. We started with arancini and meatballs and both were good. I’m very picky about meatballs and to say they were very good is an achievement! They’re a little small but the texture was great, the flavor was on point and they were even juicy! The arancini were good, but very small. They were either not made in house or whoever makes them is extremely precise! One order of gnocchi and two orders of lasagna. The lasagna was outstanding - I only make mine with homemade noodles so I never have lasagna out. When we found the noodles were homemade, we were all in! Another difference in the lasagna is no ricotta! My friend was thrilled at this fact because she can’t eat too much cheese. We all loved the lasagna! The gnocchi were a bit disappointing because they were a bit heavy. Overall, though, we had a great evening with wonderful service and food.

    The tables along the long seating booth are too close to each other, making it uncomfortable and difficult to settle into our meal. The meal was incredible (we had the ravioli and salmone in padella) and the drinks were exquisitely prepared.

    Perfect place for a get together. You can actually hear the other person speaking! The food was excellent, the service was very prompt. The server was very helpful, friendly and accommodating! I got to the restaurant early so I decided to have a drink at the bar while I waited for my friend. The bar tender was very friendly and helpful. Thank you for making an evening out a wonderful experience!

    Chef Antonio has created some great new Fall menu options. The Carciofo fritto (artichokes) was a very tasty opener for our dinner. The ravioli filled with Sweet potato in a brown butter sage sauce was excellent. My husband loved the Brodetto with a variety of fish, squid ink pasta and a delicious tomato-fennel sauce. We started and ended our evening with drinks at the bar with Holly. A very enjoyable evening!

    The restaurant itself had a very nice and pleasant ambience. The owner was incredibly friendly and so was the staff. Their homemade focaccia and spread was delightful, I would come back just for that. I ordered their special for the night: rigatoni with octopus and pancetta in a sweet pepper sauce and it was delicious. The pancetta was so well cooked, tender, and not at all fatty. The octopus was also cooked perfectly and the sauce was delicious and complimented the dish very nicely. I had a great experience and would definitely come back.

Exquisite food, friendly staff, great ambiance, and the owner is old school cool and goes table to table making sure everything is great. OH, and the bathrooms are clean!
