Our bill with tip was $100.00 and that was with me sending back one meal. The food was terrible. we ordered two appetizers 1. Bruschetta thin slice of bread, soggy and unseasoned, 2. Calamari, one big clump of manggeled peices some hard as tooth picks. My lasagna was advertized on the menu as made with meat sauce, inside was a douhy soggy mess of a bread like mixture with three pepples of what i think was poorly made meatball mix, I sent it back. My wife ordered the veal saltimbocca, it was over cook and the consistancy of shoe leather. She was to kind and embarrassed to send it back. We orderd a frozen desert which was great and found out they buy that from someone else. Our server was great.
I have eaten better Italian food out of a can.

One of the best meals we've had in months! Not only that, but the bar produced a perfectly mixed martini (many area restaurants fail at this).
Our waiter was attentive and brought items in a timely fashion.
The antipasto was just perfect, a nice blend of meats, cheeses and assorted vegetables lightly seasoned with dressing.
Our entrees were excellent and generous portions.
Yes, this place is small and tight, but it simply reminded us of restaurants in Europe that we had visited.
We were pleasantly surprised at the total tab, very reasonable for what we ordered.
We will return.

Great drinks! The drinks were on point! The food was good. The wait for our food was long - in total we were there for 2.5 hours - it just took so long for our entrees to come out. If we didn’t have such good drinks and good company, this would have been a bigger issue but we had a good time chatting with each other. The only real issue though was the table we sat at. My fiancé and I were bumped at least ten times each. The table was right by the bar, by the kitchen and just in the middle of everything. They should switch it around a bit so the largest table isn’t planted right in the way of everything. Got pretty annoying, but other than that we had a great time. Serious kudos to the bartender!

Nice restaurant in an area with limited fine dining options. The staff were extremely friendly. The food was good and fresh.
The space is very small and feels tight. I could heard conversations from all directions. It was a very busy Saturday night. There is no place to sit and wait.

We chose to celebrate our anniversary here after coming about a month ago. The food is outstanding, authentic Italian. We had the same server both times and she remembered us. Between the two visits (the first was with a group of 6) we’ve tried multiple appetizers, soups,salads, entrees and desserts and it’s hard to pick a favorite. I recommend a reservation but they’re worth waiting for.

We made a reservation through OpenTable and they were ready for us right on time despite a line at the door. Service was great, although a bit slower because of the Valentines rush. Food was delicious - a lot of great options for such a small venue.

Atmosphere was great, it definitely had an Italian feel to it. I'd come back again only to try their true Italian food. Got seafood and it was one of the most expensive one on the menu, expensive doesn't always mean its the best. We were an hour early than our reservation and they were able to take us no problem, which was really appreciated. Very romantic, went for our Valentines day and tables were well decorated with roses and lights dimmed.

Our meals this evening were very good. The chicken Marsala was moist and tender, ,very flavorful with a hint of something not always in this dish. The portion is large enough to take half home. We have had both positive and negative experiences here beginning the first day they opened. They are always moving in a positive direction. Would love to see some more moderate to higher end Red wine by the bottle on the list.
