We arrived before 6 pm on a Monday to avoid the crowds. The place was maybe a third full but the brusque hostess had us (and others) waiting to be seated despite plenty of empty tables. Fortunately the servers were friendlier although they seemed understaffed...More

This is a good Italian moderately priced spot close to Reston Town Center, but easier parking. Across from Target and next to Reston YMCA. I like the chicken Bryan dish. Good little happy hour. Food is great value and good warm bread. I would go...More

Wouldn't recommend this place for pasta. Went with family looking for something different and it was different all right. All of the pasta plates were super dry almost no sauce at all on them. Have to give them the chicken Parmesan was good though, tasty...More

Grant it, I ate at the bar. I waited 10 minutes to be acknowledged by the bartender so that put me on the edge to start. Then the food wasn't hot, luke warm. I don't think I'll go back when in Reston. Not up to...More

Staff fab, but it is a bit expensive. Food was good and plentiful. If you don't finish your meal they will box it up,for you.

Curbside pickup is fast and easy. But when I got home, my order included 2 half salads for each salad I offered, and the romaine was already browning where it had been cut. Obviously, they were using up already made salads to get rid of...More

This is a very nice location. They have friendly staff and the service was excellent. We would certainly return. The parking lot is small so if the restaurant is crowded, parking is a bit of a challenge.
