We dined here on a Friday evening, arriving during Happy Hour, which goes until 7 PM. In the bar area (which is walled off from the restaurant except for the opening by the entrance) there was a DJ playing loud, bass-thumping music, which actually was shaking the dinner table of a couple sitting nearby to us. The volume would have been tolerable if not for the shattering bass which kept vibrating through the restaurant. At 7 PM things changed--the music softened and there was far less bass-thumping, making it much more pleasant.
The restaurant is adjacent to a couple of hotels and there is plenty of free parking in front. The decor is hopelessly stuck in the late 80s at best so is in desperate need of a full makeover to bring it up into this century and to give it some charm.
Service was terrific--our server Sebastian was very friendly, attentive, and helpful. We started with a wonderful focaccia bread which they make in house, we were told. The menu is quite extensive so it was hard to decide but one of us had a delicious, spicy salad and the other had a marvelous calzone, both of which were generous portions.
Aside from the early annoyance of the music, we had a nice experience here. We would simply advise others to pay attention to the time they want to dine to avoid the music.

We were traveling back from Maine to Dover, PA and always stop in East Hartford as our halfway point. Love this restaurant because it is right next to the hotel we stay at. We had great service, and the food exceeded our expectations. I had the shrimp ravioli with a shellfish cream sauce and it was fabulous. Husband had a pasta dish of chicken and sausage in a rose sauce. He raved about it as well. Can't wait to go back next year and I will order the same dish. Wish this restaurant was closer

While the appearance of the facility could be more inviting the food is very good. We ate there after a long day of traveling and the hotel desk clerk referred us to Nolita. We were uncertain but the food turned out to be very good. The staff was also very attentive. The entree's were very generous so my wife split hers with one of our traveling companions. It is located right off the interstate next to Comfort Inn so it is most convenient. We would definitely eat there again.

The beer select here is quite good. They had a surprising number of craft beers, including local offerings on tap. The menu is not surprising, but the quality of the food is. The amaretto wings are a must have. I enjoy the happy hour specials, as a way to keep in budget on my expense account. I've had the pizza, brick chicken, and duck ravioli. All were better than you would expect when you walk through he door. Totally worth a stop,

I love the casual atmosphere and of course the excellent NY pizza here. Try the Bowery Queen pizza and you won't be sorry. The green risotto is also an excellent dish. This is a close and convenient option for us and we enjoy our spur of the moment dinners here. Full bar is available as well as entertainment (check schedule).
