Food was excellent as well as the service. Prices were good and portions are large. If I were to make any recommendations and they are strictly just my preference and icing on the cake it would be tablecloths on tables and warm the bread.

Food was outstanding - great sauces and seasoning, really-fresh ingredients and innovative appetizers, salads, and entrees. Only the dessert was mediocre.

I would definitely come back!!

Great food but absolutely no regard for COVID. No concept of social distancing. We got there at 5:45 when resturant for partially filled so felt comfortable but by 6:30, place got jamed pack and full tables where no more than couple feet apart. Also, service was pretty slow and place was filled with heavy smoke from open kitchen. I really like there food so I hope they can take corrective steps towards adhering to social distancing and investment in better exhaust to reduce smoke from open kitchen.

They don’t follow proper Covid protocol. They sat a family a foot away. Tables are not spread out. We won’t return.

Ate there Saturday night and we both had pasta dishes which were excellent. Only issue is the distancing of table during the pandemic. The tables were very close...the outside dining area was closed so they have to utilize as much of the indoor space as possible. I spoke up when the hostess tried to sit a table of four behind us and our chairs would have been touching. They were able to move the party to another area and all ended good. We will eat here again post pandemic or in the spring when we can eat outside as the food was very good.

Everything tasted good. I liked the fact that my food was not heavy but very flavorful. I had the grilled calamari appetizer (delish!) and the whole bronzino for my entree. I Recommend this restaurant.

Such a phenomenal meal! The food was great and the service was equally matched. We started our evening dining outdoors and had to move inside because it got too cold out. Only recommendation would be to have warm layers if you dine outside and for the restaurant to get more propane for their lovely heaters 😁

I ordered pasta dish pescatore with white sauce. I was sick with stomach pain all night. My husband had the chicken parmigiana and it was over cooked and chewy. Never again.

I’ve been here a handful of times and every time, it’s been just okay. The food isn’t amazing, but the service is fine. I had one of the chicken dishes and my friend had the chicken parm, both just okay. It’s unfortunate that there aren’t a lot of good restaurants in Plymouth Meeting. The only thing I would say is that on a different visit I did have the branzino and it was tasty.

Very loud, and social distancing was not practiced. The normal table placement was used, so everyone was 2 feet from the next table. I felt uncomfortable with the exposure, but the food was wonderful.

Arugula - always delicious! Every visit, have to start out with the grilled octopus. Halibut and Veal de Arugula was excellent. While they couldn’t find my Open Table reservation ( and I did receive a reminder from you ) they were able to seat us outside as requested. A bit chilly -wish they had the outside heater behind us lit. All in all a great visit.
