Rated 4 out of 5 by They were very nice but the waitress completely forgot about us when it came time to pay the check. Management had her prepping a table for a large party. We had theater tickets, were running late, so we had to ask the bartender. Also they ran out of everything! They were out of shrimp for the pizza (which was ok, not fond of shrimp). But they're out of panini!? On a Friday night!? They're out of whole wheat crust!? That's kind of what they're known for. So while nice, service a little off. The calamari was ok. At least not overcooked. The Italian wedding soup was okay. The pizza itself was delicious. Scallops, spinach and creme fraiche. I recommend the pizza. Apr 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent pizza and callimari Nov 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by the lasagna was fantastic. Lots of cheese and meat. My husbands' meatballs could have used a little more flavor. We had lobster ravioli for an appetizer and it was wonderful. Nov 16, 2014

Rated 3 out of 5 by I have wanted to try this restaurant for a number of years since it is right around the corner from my office and I really wanted to like it. Unfortunately, we didn't have the best experience. The restaurant didn’t appear to be busy yet the kitchen just couldn’t keep up even with that meager volume. The server was very apologetic. My husband and I finished our meal before our daughter got hers. The table next to us also asked when they would be getting their meals. The calamari came to the table without the sauce. I saw others send back their meals as well. The owner moved slowly around the restaurant completely unaware of how unhappy the patrons were. The biggest issue we had though was that there were a number of unknown taxes tacked on to the bottom of our check, which rendered the final cost from a base amount of $49 to come out to $61. This is about 24% for taxes! Unfortunately, I didn’t keep a copy of the check but if you decide to try this restaurant, you are best advised to look at the extra charges and ask where they come from. We won’t be going back! Oct 18, 2014

Rated 3 out of 5 by The clams had ice in them. A lot of the shellfish were not open. The sauces were very good. The service was excellent. It's a nice place inside. Aug 10, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by There was only one server (appeared to be new or the owners son) for the entire room so service was really slow and we had to ask to order. Jun 6, 2014
