The food is good. I was happy with the service. The noise level was far too high throughout the meal. For us, this is important but others apparently aren't bothered and for them I would recommend it based on the food and service.

Ordered Penne pasta was served regular spaghetti. Front desk staff did not notice or acknowledge us at all. Requested window table and was given table that was along side fireplace so no view. Still would go back but..

The food was absolutely amazing, we loved every bite of our meal. The downsides aren't huge deals but worth noting. If you add a note to your reservation don't expect them to read it, this was for our anniversary and we asked for a nice quiet table off to the side, instead we were seated dead center in the middle of the room, and it was not due to lack of options. Another thing that is just odd was the music selection, why would anyone want modern pop music playing while sitting down and having a nice Italian meal, it ruined the ambiance but the food was great. Overall a good meal at a fair price, but the service and music could use some changes.

We had the fish specials, Char and Salmon preceded by the soft shell crap appetizer. Delicious and perfectly cooked with lovely sauces. Next time, we’ll try pizza.

For a minimum of $18 entrees the service should be exceptional. Everything about my experience here was rushed and uncomfortable. My date commented that it was “an expensive Olive Garden.” That was a bit embarrassing for me. Our server did not know the menu, and only made suggestions for more. Overall worst service I have had at this price point ever. Went in with the intention of getting the works with multiple courses. However the experience was so bad that I was trying to get out asap. Lastly if you are paying $18-$20 for pasta dishes, it shouldn’t be out in less than 5 minutes after ordering. How fast the food was out was very concerning and makes me think that our food was not made to order at all. Very disappointed!

It had good ambiance and the food was good. It was a little busy so the service suffered just a tad, but the live music was more than comforting in the mean time

Every time we come and we come here often at least twice a month, we get very incompetent and condescending wait staff. If a waiter has to write Chicken Parmesan on a notepad for order and still mess up the order, you have problems on your hand.

If a waitstaff cant recites daily specials you have problems on your hand.

It was our first time there and we all agreed that we will go again. Tables are a little close to each other,
I kept getting hit on the back of my chair.
And a table of 4 older adults used foul language for everyone to hear.
After they left it became much better.

I had the salmon with dill sauce and brussels sprouts, and my friend had the risotto. Both were very good. The salmon was fresh from Alaska. We shared the chocolate mouse dessert- so good.

Overall everything was just ok ... not bad but nothing that would bring me back. The olive oil dip for the bread is good ... but I would not have served the bread that was served with it. Pasta was over cooked, more along what you would get at a chain restaurant.

Dinner for 4 @ 5:30. Initially service was great. For some reason it took way to long for our entrees to come out. Salads and calamari were very good. Our table ordered lasagne, clams with linguini, pasta carbonara and egg plant Parmesan. Everyone loved entrees with one exception. Egg plant Parmesan tasted like tons of melted cheese on a very over cooked egg plant. Waiters were friendly. Atmosphere was enjoyable. Price was very reasonable for what we got.
