I havent been to this place in about 6 years because of the way they made us wait for 45 minutes with a reservation... because people showed up late for their reservation...(with out covid) again we had to wait 15 minutes because we made to wait because people said they wanted outdoor seating (it was really cold out) and so they sat inside which made us have to wait... I would not care during this time normally but they were like this before the pandemic..

Overall, the experience was fair. The food was just ok. I had the fusilli primavera, which lacked any taste and the sauce was so thin that it did not stick to the pasta. We had to ask one of the servers (possibly one of the owners) to pull her mask up over her nose. Although she did so, she seemed annoyed that we asked her to do so. I would not go back.

It was my 3rd time and me and my boyfriends 2nd time together.
Dee and Raphael made our 1st visit as a couple reason enough to come back besides the obvious delicious food. Tonites visit was even better. Tony was an excellent addition to our evening. I recommend everything. They make an excellent dirty martini and the list of specials and dessert options are exceptional.
We have decided to make it 'our place'. We are comfortable and happy here. It ain't cheap but not expensive either and the food is equal to the cost. Cannot recommend enough.

Unusual locale for a restaurant, in a mixed industrial/residential neighborhood.

Caprese Salad and Chicken Campagnola were excellent.

Very happy with selection.

The food was delicious and the people were very nice. However, we waited, literally, 2 hours to get our dinner! This was after 1/2 hour without even bread. The waitress finally offered to buy us drinks, but we didn’t want any. When we got the check, we were surprised to see nothing was comped for us.

I’ll make this quick because I get mad just thinking about my experience here. Located in a weird warehouse area. Parking lot is dark and narrow and a pain to get in and out of. Waiters and staff are incompetent. The kitchen left the string on my braciole. Waiters acted like it was no big deal. They didn’t comp the meal. Not the Valentine’s Day experience we wanted.

As usual; my wife and I enjoyed our meal very much. They seemed to to be understaffed; but all of the servers and bartender seemed to help each other out. I have tried many of the dishes here and can’t say I have ever been disappointed. During this visit I had the chicken Murphy. Delicious!!

I work around the corner and go here frequently. You cannot get better Italian food anywhere. The staff is friendly and we had an inexpensive bottle of wine that was excellent. The waiter will recommend it to you. Italian red.

Came here for New Year’s Eve dinner, first off they had limited menu which was disappointing. My boyfriend didn’t care for anything on this menu. I had lobster ravioli which tasted rather fishy and came out look warm. My bf had a chicken dish with red peppers and cheese. There was big piece of pepper on top of chicken. Not very appetizing. The chicken was a breaded but was mushy and very tough. His dish was disgusting. The decor needs serious updating. Looks rather dated and dingy. Only saving grace was the service. We had a sweet older gentleman. Very disappointing New Year’s Eve dinner

We went for Christmas Eve and they only had a special limited menu on offer, so I can't be sure how the food normally is. That was disappointing, since we had all reviewed the menu online ahead of time and picked our favorite entrees--none of which was actually available. It would have been nice to be contacted in advance about the limited menu, so we would have been prepared. It's never good to start off a meal already disappointed before you've even taken a bite!

The service was very good (though we felt a bit rushed, considering how many empty tables were in the restaurant), but the food was just so-so. One person had fish that they said tasted very fishy, so much so that they were concerned they might be sick the next day. Another had ravioli that tasted store-bought/frozen, and one of the ravioli had a big finger hole in it, where someone in the kitchen must have checked the temperature. The others had chicken or pork dishes that they described as "better than they look, thank God", but not especially tasty.

I imagine we'd have had a better experience on a regular night, rather than a holiday, when they're trying to rush people out to accommodate later reservations.
