    I have passed this place and wanted to try it because it looked so beautiful, and it exceeded expectations. The service was wonderful. And every single thing we ordered was exceptional. I could not recommend the bucatini more!

    Beware this restaurant charges an unethical 3.5% for all non cash transactions. There is a line item that appeared on the bill. No other restaurant that I am aware of charges to use cards (which is the norm these days). This is just a way for the restaurant to charge a "phantom" extra few dollars on every bill, and I'm pretty sure most customers don't even notice it. The place is very noisy, the food sort of average, but this attempt to fleece a few extra dollars on each bill is the reason we won't be going again.

    I made a reservation for 6:15 PM for a party of one in the standard dining room. When I arrived, I was told that parties of two or more have priority over a party of one. When I arrived at the restaurant and walked up to the hostess desk to check in, the young lady told me that because I was a party of one that tables 2 or more, I have higher priority than mine. After listening to the rejection of my reservation because I was a party of one. I told the young lady I will wait for my table in the dining room at the bar. Now the situation was corrected by me having a martini and waiting for my table now. Granted I did not have to wait long, but I felt slightly rejected at the at the beginning of this experience at the front door. No, my food on the other hand was spectacular. My server it was a young lady named truly was exceptional now the bill ended up being over $181 for one person. Oh wait a minute I have to include the martini so it’s over $200. Which is normal for me going out if I’m dining by myself. I do believe there was a problem in the initial approach by the hostess. If I had been anybody else I would’ve assumed I would’ve just walked out of the restaurant and said go to hell. But I have been there before without issue with the reservation and receded half an hour after I arrived due to people, not leaving, which is fine with me. That’s what I was told had a superb meal then , I do take offense at being regarded as a non-patron because I cannot come in a group. And I do know that the dining room has two seater booths Now I will not let experience at the front hostess desk ruin as superb dinner that I had last night . And also will not let it deterred me coming back to the restaurant, but I do need to bring up that subject about being treated like nobody because I’m a party of one I do believe me, myself, and I are often great company, even though it’s a party of one for dinner. Thank you for listening David watson

    The food was delicious, the 3 star review of the food is due to a large piece of plastic found in my mouth after taking a bite of ricotta dip. We discreetly notified our server. She brought me a clean napkin, but no apology was made for the large piece of plastic that I almost ate.

    The vibe is good and the bar is great if you are waiting for your table. They were busy (as expected for a Friday night) and came out to the bar area with some appetizers to taste (nice touch). The kale salad and meatballs were pretty solid. The entrees is where things took a step back. We ordered the ragu and osso buco - the pasta was a bit over cooked and the osso buco was good but not great - the flavor didn’t stand out as differentiated and kinda fell flat on the tastebuds. Waitstaff is good and managers came by to check in on us - a nice touch. We’ll try it again but order different meals.

    Service was attentive with appetizers arriving quickly. Risotto appetizer was prepared and presented nicely but lacked “zing”. No definitive flavor. Also ordered the ricotta dip with toasted bread. Bread was greasy and didn’t taste of butter or olive oil just grease. Ricotta was kind of bland and didn’t live up to the menu description. Quite pricey for the amount of food we ordered. Only got 2 appetizers and 2 drinks for $68.

    It might have been an off night but overall the experience was just ok. The fish was excellent but that was the only thing we liked. Don’t get the bread basket - stale and cold. The ricotta app lacked flavor. Dessert was supposed to be butterscotch pudding but didn’t taste any butterscotch. Atmophere is nice. Not sure about going back.

    We were expecting better from this place. We arrived at 11:30 for lunch. They gave us a valet ticket after we parked. They charged 6dlls for nothing. We ordered pollo a la parmigiana and “Benedicto a la purgatorio”from the brunch menu. They served the chicken almost dry-scarce sauce. No pasta. Side were 4 cold mini peppers. They don’t serve any complementary bread/oil. If you want some you’ll have to pay $8. My husband had “Benedicto al purgatorio”which it was 2 bread slices with eggs and tomatoes. Overpriced for $22. For sodas they don’t do refills. Instead I got a mini 6oz of Diet Coke for $3. Overall, we didn’t enjoy the experience. It felt like they are trying hard to get the highest margin possible of their customers.

    Amazing! Our server Andy was spectacular, honest, knowledgeable, fun and made us feel like we were over having dinner at his house. He made our night. And then the food: I almost don’t want to tell anyone how amazing everything tasted. This isn’t a meatballs and spaghetti and all you can eat bread and salad kind of place. It is an experience and the menu is original and there is something for everyone. Highly recommend for any occasion. Great date night place! We will be back.

    First, the ambiance - wow! Simply perfect. Lively but not too loud to hear your own conversation. Impressive wine list. The menu is excellent and everything suggested by our waiter was incredible. We had apps and a bottle of wine followed by gelato. Friendly and efficient service and the perfect amount of attention. Will definitely return.
