We had a fantastic meal with a party of 5. Our waitress was FANTASTIC and the food was the same. WE have NO complaints and enjoyed our food, the service and the atmosphere here and highly recommend to all. The Grotto downstairs (bar and live music) just made the entire evening. We have not gone to a place like this... More

Stopped by for a drink and ended up going back 2 times in a row for dinner. Casual atmosphere. The food was excellent, made to order. Service was fantastic. Great live music in the grotto in Saturday nights. Can't say enough good things about this place. Owner Josh and staff Lisa and Tony could not have been nicer. Make it... More

If you're the adventurous kind try everything on the Cicchetti menu (small sharable appetizers), my favourite were the mussels but the menu overall is very warm and hearty. After dinner you can stroll over downstairs for post-dinner cocktails and some live music, the atmosphere is great!

This was a friend's scouting and pick night for dinner. Met some of the local talent that now make Hammondsport area there permanent residence, that was nice. The pre-scouting effort supplied by our friends snagged us a good table near the downstairs bar, and the live music for that night. All-in-all, a good evening. Food was a "C to B"... More

My husband and I enjoyed a pizza and meatball plus the excellent bread served with roasted garlic. The pizza had a cracker thin crust and the meatball and sauce were excellent. Dessert was a lemon ricotta cheesecake, we enjoyed every bit of it. The place is small but well appointed, downstairs has a few tables and live entertainment some nights.

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Union Block! My husband and I commented to each other that this was probably the best Italian meal that we have ever had. If we didn't live four hours away we would be weekly dinner regulars for sure!
