Everything was excellent. 10 out of 10. I’m giving an 8 for ambiance because the music was terrible. Not sure who chose the playlist but it’s an upscale Italian restaurant. Playing very loud rock/alternative/rap Christmas music made that part unpleasant. We went for our anniversary dinner and it wasn’t very romantic due to the terrible music. But we laughed it off and had a nice time. Overall the food and service was impeccable. We will definitely eat there again.

An amazing amazing dinner! Not only is the restaurant spotlessly clean, it was so comfortable to dine with plenty of room for social distancing. The food was delicious from appy to dessert , all freshly made. The waitress Noveen took the time to explain the history of the restaurant owners and knew everything on the menu, with great suggestions. Cant go wrong with dining here!

Loved the food. I got the ribeye. It was delicious... Only thing I might suggest is to perhaps serve the steak by itself. The peppers and tomatoes were great but kind of overpowered the steak flavor. We will definitely be back!

It was our first time and we’ll definitely be back! Great menu selection. We order a few appetizers to try which we’re all great. I had the fish special and my husband had the ribeye, both dishes were amazing and creative. Our server Charlotte was also the bartender and she was amazing! We met Yaz the manager and Shaun the owner, both gracious hosts. The wine list is small, varied and fantastic.

We decided to go to your restaurant after reading your website. When we got there, I immediately loved the atmosphere! We sat upstairs, had a FABULOUS server who was polite, friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu. We loved the menu and your specials, although we chose not to try them then, all sounded delicious. We had the calamari and the meatballs as our appetizers, for dinner I had the mezze rigatoni, my husband had the 32 layer lasagna verdi and our daughter had the gramignia, all delicious. The portions looked light but as we all finished every bite, we realized it was just right and we didn't feel too full. We thought it was so nice that the owner/chef came out and greeted the tables, had a great conversation with him. We can't wait to come back again!
