  • KendraSuper quiet for lunch, and the food is delicious!

  • Aysu RThe cavatelle was fabulous, but beware it's a meal in its own! The duck was cooked perfectly and melting chocolate cake was amazing. Would absolutely recommend. Go on a 100% empty stomach though!

    55555 by Aysu R


  • Rory P.Great date spot. Enjoyed the duck combo (duck breast and leg). Nice combo of duck textures and taste. Finish with the molten chocolate cake

    55555 by Rory P.


  • Bhavin EDo not miss the garlic soup!! I repeat, do not miss the GARLIC SOUP.

    33333 by Bhavin E


  • Bhavin EAnd OfCourse the risotto. The flavour is incredible

    55555 by Bhavin E


  • T NA great little nook that sort of has a gangster film feel--the spot where he takes the mistress. Classic tunes. Bolognese is very good, not exceptional. All of the desserts are luxurious and amazing!

    55555 by T N


  • A Get the gnocchi

    33333 by A


  • Russell AThe duck was outstanding! Large portions and everything excellent.

    55555 by Russell A

    55555 by Margot M.


  • 布鲁诺If you ever been to Italy, then you know that most of dishes served here are not really "authentic", but this place is great for some affordable comfort food, good wine and friendly service

    55555 by 布鲁诺


  • Mahee FerliniThanks everyone for your wonderful tips. Sounds like a great place to stop by the next time I'm in town.

    55555 by Mahee Ferlini

    55555 by Jessica S

    55555 by Gerson F.


  • Jeremy K.The fonduta is a great option to start your meal and great for sharing. Dip away!

    55555 by Jeremy K.


  • Jessica$38 prefix is totally worth it. Cavatelli, grilled calamari, or beet salad to start. Carne with reggiano risotto. Chocolate cake.

    55555 by Jessica

    55555 by Kate Gwilt

    55555 by Minnie Kim


  • Marcus L.Don't skip on the fonduta!

    55555 by Marcus L.


  • Marcus L.Garden level gem. Italian with an gourmet flair. Recognizable dishes presented in unique, surprising ways. Order the mussels, chic parm and finish with a seasonal dessert. Perfect date night.

    55555 by Marcus L.


  • Kerry C.Have been here 4 times in 2 years and have to make myself try other places. Slowly working my way through the menu and each time I find a new favorite. Gnocchi is my latest :-)

    55555 by Kerry C.


  • Sofia P.I flock to this cozy Italian basement on the reg for their unbelievable short rib gnocchi! Melting chocolate cake for dessert of course.

    55555 by Sofia P.


  • Adam S.Bolognese was perhaps the best I've ever had. Gnocchi and short ribs was equally delicious, and so tender.

    55555 by Adam S.


  • Christina L.Cavatelle app was really rich and filling - enough for me as a main course

    55555 by Christina L.


  • Dudley S.Tiny, cute, great value

    55555 by Dudley S.


  • Drew M.The cavatelle was absolutely amazing. Perfect flavor. For an appetizer, it was a fairly large portion so take that in mind when ordering your meal. Get this!!

    55555 by Drew M.


  • Kristine G.The Spagetti and Meatballs is ALWAYS good, my personal fav is Bolognese: House cut tagliatelle pasta, San Marzano tomatoes, Lamb, Pork, Beef

    55555 by Kristine G.


  • Ashish PFood was great but service could be better. A lot of waiting to get a order in.

    33333 by Ashish P


  • Lindsey ClarkSweet potato ravioli was amazing! Great selection of both Italian and American wines too. Very cozy atmosphere. Definitely recommend it for a romantic night out!

    55555 by Lindsey Clark


  • ScottGet the sweet potato ravioli and the gnocchi with short ribs.

    55555 by Scott


  • Margot W.I'm really fond of the Italian cuisine, but I can hardly believe there's an Italian cook working at this place: I ordered risotto and got a soup with a hint of risotto. Will not recommend this place.

    33333 by Margot W.


  • Mateus d.Garlic Soup is Excellent ! Spaguetti with meatballs as well, very well made, a bit on the spicy side.The banana cake dessert is good, but not unforgetable. Wine selection could be better

    55555 by Mateus d.


  • Hannah B.Chicken Parm is amazing!

    55555 by Hannah B.


  • Holly C.The beef tenderloin with risotto and asparagus was quite delicious! Leave plenty of room for dessert because the melting chocolate cake is to die for!

    55555 by Holly C.


  • Sammy W.Fantastic fondue and Fra Diavolo. No cocktails, though (why do restaurants do that?), so grab a pre-dinner drink @ the Red Hat or 21st Amendment.

    55555 by Sammy W.


  • Jared R.Absolutely delicious. Get the tenderloin with risotto. So good! Don't even get me started with the melting chocolate cake.

    55555 by Jared R.

    55555 by Christianne


  • Aaron W.Managed to accommodate despite no reservations! Tasty pan-fried mozzarella and butternut ravioli. Vegetarian too!

    55555 by Aaron W.


  • Susan R.Get a corner table-- it's quiet, dimly lit, and romantic inside. The short rib gnocchi are outstanding-- rich, generously sauced, and meltingly tender.

    55555 by Susan R.


  • Dave S.Amazing gnocchi with short ribs. The meat melts in your mouth, not in your hand!

    55555 by Dave S.
