“A very good Italian restaurant”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

This was our first visit to this restaurant and it was a great dinner in a very nice atmosphere. The appetizer menu was so interesting that we each opted to order two each instead of dinners. They were excellent and ample enough that they difficult to finish. The Italian menu was very large with a varied assortment of choices. It was a nice evening and we choose to eat out in the enclosed patio. The inside was very nice also. We had a "new" waiter who was very knowledgeable and informative. We will definitely return.

“Great food, service”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

We went for a birthday dinner - had 6:30 reservations on a Thursday night. Everything about the meal was excellent - cocktails, appetizers, salad, meals and dessert, as well as the service. We had veal sorrento, veal francaise, the lasagna with meatballs and a veal, sausage stuffed canneloni with bolognese sauce. Portions were generous and the ladies had leftovers. prices are a little high for RI but with a full meal and 6 cocktails, the meal ran $55 apiece including tip.

“Whst a joke”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

My husbsnd and I went to this restaurant after a long tedious day. I asked for the shrimp over pasta. The dish was absolutely
tasteless. Four tiny shrimp for $24. The waiter came up and asked if everything was ok. When I said no he disappeared. 5 minutes later he came back with the check. My issue wasn't even mentioned. There was a maitre d who never bothered to come to the table so zi got up to speak to him. I have never done that in my life. Have to say quite infuriating. Almost like I was invisible. At any rate he screamed at me . This is customer service? We will never return.

“Excellent food but service not up to par”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

We've been to this restaurant several times. The menu is quite extensive and there are always nightly specials. The food is always delicious! A little pricey but a good value considering the quality.
On our last visit we were disappointed with the service. We waited quite awhile for our waitress to come to our table. So much so that another server came over with some bread and assured us that our server would be over shortly. It took another 10 minutes. At the end of the meal we waited again and finally the maître came over to take our check. Looking around it seemed every other table was getting very good service. So not sure what happened. We will chalk this up to just a bad night for us.

“Pleasant surprise in mall”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Best Italian food I've had in years. ( native Bostonian) f& plump but not too chewy.
menu is long & full of fabulous sounding traditional Italian staples.
Pasta was in house made, plump but not chewy, sauce was delicate.
Veal, which iIrarely eat anymore was a special treat, lemony, tender lightly breaded but crisp edges.
Bread was light & crusty.
Good wine list but I'm on a summer sangria kick so that's what I had- which was somehow more thirst quenching than I imagined. Strongest of the season & very good.
the waiter--named Elvis-- was smart quick inforrmative & adorable.
