    We had a wonderful evening with Franco and Holly at Senti. Chef Antonio had great specials including the delicious Veal Saltimbocca. My favorite is the house-made Veal & Pork Agnolotti with butter/thyme sauce. Holly made sure we had the perfect drinks and wine to accompany our dinners. Grazie!

    The duck breast is outstanding. The beet salad is highly overpriced for what is served. While previously olive oil came with the bread, It appears that now one needs to ask for it.

    We visited Senti for the first time on Valentine's Day. Our drinks were good, but nothing noteworthy. The appetizer we ordered had octopus and it was chewy and not tender. For dinner we ordered the Ravioli De Carne and Gnocchi. Both dishes really lacked seasoning and were bland. The highlight of the evening was the strawberry mousse dessert. It was absolutely delicious! Overall the experience left us feeling disappointed. An expensive evening, which did not meet our expectations.

    Senti offers exceptional Italian specialties in an upscale, comfortable atmosphere. We had the arancini, piatto dei formaggi con prosciutto, brasato di manzo, lasangna alla venetto, affogato, tiramisu, cappuccino and prosecco. Our server was well informed and considerate, when I told him I’m allergic to shrimp, he arranged a substitute for the fried leeks that went with my brasato in case the oil they were fried in had been used for shrimp. We met Franco, the owner. He was friendly and outgoing, sharing recommendations for accommodations and an Italian guide for the trip we’re planning to Italy this year. This was our Valentine’s Day dinner and it did not disappoint. We’ve spent many birthdays, anniversaries and family celebrations at Senti. You can trust them to elevate any occasion!

    We had dinner after a show at the Benedum Theatre. Do to traffic we were an hour late for our reservation. I called to let them know that we were running late. The manager was kind enough to hold our table. The servers were courteous, knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. We had an antipasti of Arancini and a cup of red pepper soup. Our main course was the Gnocchi dell Giorno and Mezze Maniche alla Norma. Both were excellent. I will definitely recommend Senti to all my friends.

    We had a great evening at Senti as always. We loved two of Chef Antonio's pasta creations. The veal and pork agnolotti in a buttery sage sauce and the pasta all Norma with eggplant were both excellent. The Fritto Mista appetizer is tender and cooked perfectly. We love being served at the bar with Holly. It's always fun talking with Franco and Antonio.

    We had fantastic service. Ordered arancini balls. Good flavor. They had a spicy sauce on top. Plenty to share for 4 people. My son had spaghetti and meatballs. The meatballs were very tender. Three of us ordered from the restuarant week menu. Insalata di Arugala had pistacios and shaved pecorino cheese. Loved the vinagairette dressing. Cacio e Peppe. Good pepper flavor. Tiramisu for dessert. This had a creamier filling compared to most places but I liked that better. My husband had the hot expresso poured over vanilla ice cream. This is his favorite dessert and one of the reasons we came back to Senti to eat. The only downside is parking in Lawrenceville. The lot across the street was full and we had a hard time finding a street parking spot.

    My son and i had a great time at Senti connecting with friends and enjoying dinner. Chef Antonio's preparation of octupus is masterful---it is so tender. We enjoyed the Mezze Maniche alla Norma and the Brodetto Pesce. The rigatoni was al dente with really fresh tomato sauce. We loved talking with Holly, Fanco and Sophia. Senti is so welcoming !

    New Year's Eve at Senti was vibrant! Chef Antonio's preparations were excellent as always. The special Black Bass entree was moist and flavorful and the Brasato was incredibly tender. We enjoyed our favorite appetizer Fritto Mista as an appetizer. Our server, Annabelle did a great job of serving our table on an incredibly busy night. We had after dinner drinks with our favorite mixologist, Holly who also did an amazing job of serving drinks for the everyone. Mille grazie to Franco and all of the staff for creating a festive atmosphere for New Year's Eve. Buon Anno!

    We were here for New Year’s Eve and sometimes that’s not the best night to dine out. Senti, however, was an exception. It had the full menu plus some specials to choose from and there was never a feeling of being rushed. We have eaten here several times now and have never been disappointed. The food is amazing. We had the meatballs and arancini for appetizers and both were very good. The red pepper sauce on the arancini was a nice change from a tomato sauce. The special salad with dried cranberries was refreshing. The duck main course was dine to a perfect temperature with wonderfully crispy skin and the gnocchi with pork ragu was fantastic. And dessert…I am a bread pudding enthusiast so I ordered that. Yum! However, we got an apple tart to share and I might have become a convert. The shell was so light and flaky it seemed to melt in the mouth. The only little ding I could give is that the restaurant can be a bit noisy. Maybe it was an excessively enthusiastic crowd for NYE. No matter; that would not deter me from going back. Often.
