    My Polpo Crudo starter and Pomodorini Salad was prepared perfectly. We had the Veal medallions with shrimp and crab meat special and Veal and Chicken Fontana Tini was our server and managed our groups meal flawlessly. It was a packed Monday evening and he was quite busy but remained attentive. I highly recommend the eatery and will remain a regular !!

    The meal was served within minutes, so we know it wasn’t freshly prepared. The oil tasted burnt, and we had significant GI issues following the meal. The restaurant charged a 3.5% fee for credit card payment, so we tried to pay in cash. The server told us she was unable to bring change because they only had $10 bills. We told her she could keep the change as part of her tip, but it was overall a weird service experience, though the person was very nice.

    Open Table only offered tables before 5pm and after 8pm, but the restaurant was mostly empty between 5-7. I mean 80% empty! Conclusion, don’t use OpenTable, call the restaurant directly.

    We dined inside. The ambience was fine, but it was freezing, the music was rock (which didn’t seem to fit with the place) and the walls need to be painted. All easy fixes. Outside looked lovely. The food was fantastic and the waitstaff were lovely.

    We had a fabulous app which was a special. There were 3 thick fried tomatoes on a bed of pesto and topped with a burrata. It was pricey but definitely shareable. The pasta was delicious, and the bomba for dessert fabulous. Great meal. This was our fourth visit and did not disappoint.

    Waiter was quite nice. Logo adorable. Restaurant ambience great and menu was promising.. All the dishes sounded fabulous. Specials are quite expensive, be forewarned. Last, although dishes were presented beautifully, the chef needs to live up to what the menu promises. Sigh.
