The marinara was tasteless and right out of the can. Tiramisu was rancid and we only took one bite. Explains why they were so slow. Prices were great but did not match the food. Staff tried hard but this was a non-starter.

Great selection of soups, wines and main courses. Had the Capellini with a side sausage. Very good. Great seating, not rushed. Waiter was pleasant and professional. Really enjoyed the atmosphere. Next door to the Marriott Courtyard which made it even better!! Highly recommend.

Reminds me of the canned spaghetti of the Chef! Very bland tasting lasagna, cheap ingredients. I’ve had better from Stouffers frozen lasagna.

Made a reservation for 9 on Open Table and arrived 10 mins. early. The restaurant was crowded and clearly overbooked. The hostess argued that we didn’t have a reservation until we showed her our confirmation. Then, we were told that despite our confirmed reservation she...More

Actually she does say that often. This place is one of our favorites and we live walking distance from it. Insightful and delicious Italian food from long-time employees, in an intimate setting. Race time finds this place packed, and in other seasons- guess what? It's...More
