Cozy little place with friendly (but not too friendly) service. Happy to accommodate gluten free dinners. The house antipasto was particularly satisfying, full of well prepared veggies and salad as well as some salami and cheese. For gluten free they used a quinoa based pasta when I went. It was good, not as good as the Le Veneziane pasta we use at home, though. Sauce was excellent however. And my gluten-eating husband loved their fresh pasta carbonara. We shared affogato for dessert. So good. I thought their prices were quite reasonable, too. GooglePlace - July 2017

Step into a true Italian restaurant. Friendly welcoming hosts, professional wait staff, authentic, well-prepared food. Great place for an anniversary or other special date dinner. And now they have a casual overflow spot next door. GooglePlace - July 2017

Was so disappointed with our Mother's Day brunch. Making the reservation and even changing it a day ahead was easy. We were the 2nd table seated at 11:30 AM. The waitperson was friendly and from Italy she said. It all started well with drinks and appetizer, then we waited and waited and waited for our entrees. A table that came in after us, got their drinks and entrees and were finishing up before our entrees came out. We pointed out that we had ordered before the other table and our sweet waitperson told us because we ordered an appetizer our food was taking longer and that the other table didn't order an app. so that's why their food came more timely. Okay, but what about the flow of our table? We shouldn't have to wait over 30 minutes for entrees to follow our appetizers. When we finally got our entrees, there was red caviar on my omelet, when I had ordered the omelet with black caviar. I asked my waitperson and she told me that the entree is with red caviar. I showed her on the menu that it's supposed to come with black caviar and she said she'd talk to the chef. When she returned she told me that red and black caviar come from the same fish so it's the same, only the color is different (really?). I asked her what fish the red and black caviar came from, she said she 'd ask. She came back 15 minutes later and told me that the chef told her the name of the fish is salmon row (roe?). Okay, either the chef is inept and doesn't know anything about fish or he thinks his customer is stupid and is taking advantage of the inexperienced waitperson for whom English is not her first language. I wasn't going to leave a tip, (super slow service, faulty food) but the waitperson was working so hard and was clearly not completely at fault that I did leave the minimum 15%. I won't be back though to what used to be a favorite local Italian restaurant. GooglePlace - June 2017
