This restaurant exceeded my expectations in every avenue from the atmosphere, service, food quality and beyond. I have been here on several occasions and have never had a bad experience. Or perhaps it is more accurate to say I have always been overly satisfied with...More

This downtown restaurant clearly stands out from what I had seen thus far. Upon arrival, it was clear that this was a popular place to eat. Not only it was a challenge to find parking (few spots by the restaurant, free parking on the street...More

We had great food for a good price. The Carbonera was amazing and I tried some sort of chocolate cake with raspberry filling. You should check this place out for sure.

We went there to celebrate our granddaughter's birthday. We split an avocado salad. From the description, I would have expected less arugula and more avocado and artichokes. I had the tagliatelle which was ok , one friend had the lasagna which was passable and the...More

The restaurant was packed and loud. Service was very good though and the food was very good. I would return and probably try the pizza.

If you do not accept reservations; then your website should show that! As well, if not, why not?

I have never had a problem getting in without a reservation however I have also made reservations too. Not sure if their policy has changed but we will be there in Feb and I'm sure that reservations have been made .

I can't seem to find how/where to make a reservation, When I call the number I get a recording that says send it to a particular email address. I sent it and it bounces back. I tried different variations of it and still bounced back. I cant type it here because it won't allow any HTML or website addresses or emails to be entered in this question. They have a recoding but there is nowhere to leave a message. It says that the mailbox is full. Please let me know how to make a reservation for 10 people for this restaurant.
