great menu – There are so many wonderful dishes and excellent wines that you must visit over and over to truly experience how superb this little establishment is. The waitstaff is very knowlegable and gracious, their understanding of the food and wine pairings is pretty good for a smaller restaurant. The prices are reasonable considering that you have leftovers for days. The marinara is the best I have ever had. Try it out, then come back a few times, you'll love it.
Over Priced – The food is overpriced and the atmosphere is bleak.
The servers do not know the first thing about hospitality. I will never return
Hot Hot Hot – The restaurant decor was OK but they would benefit hugely from some air-conditioning - I couldn't wait to leave it was so hot.
Food and wines not bad and priced OK for the area - shame they don;t take reservations.
Nothing to write home about overall.
Seafood risotto great – We first went here two years ago and had the best experience. We loved the seafood risotto and the waitstaff was the best. Since, we've gone about four more times. The risotto is still excellent but other dishes (linguine with clams) aren't any better than frozen Michelina's. The really great waitstaff seem to have left, leaving some waiters who are fine but others who don't seem that interested in helping you. If you want great risotto, try Il Postale but not sure if I can recommend anything else. The fact you can't make reservations for less than 8 is a big negative since the wait can be long.
Risotto dreams – I am still dreaming of the seafood risotto I had there last year. Unfortunately I haven't been back since we live too far away but the food was really good. The service was a bit distracted and intermittent. The acoustics could be improved - the open kitchen doesn't help. Overall though, a very good dining experience.
relaxing – The people are friendly and never in a hurry. They are always ready to serve you.
