"Waitress Liz was great, breads awesome....ravioli with pesto was scrumptious, bruschetta delicious. The special seafood Bacchanalia was a bit soupy (try less broth perhaps?) But yummy. While I am not a fan of red sauce (or as some call it "gravy") we ordered the eggplant parmesan for the table to share-itwasverydelicious. Thank you for a most enjoyable experience."

"On Saturday, 2.27.16, the service was great. I asked the server is she were going to be there on 3.5.16, when I planned a family birthday outing; she said no. On 3.5.16, the service was "just ok"--not like the first visit. So, I guess the server is a key factor. This will factor into a decision to return."

"The food was good. The service was fair. Despite being a small resteraunt with several servers there that evening (the Saturday before Valentines Day), it felt like it took a long time for our server to make it around to our table. It is an EXTREMELY SMALL resteraunt. There is no clear check in and ABSOLUTELY NO WHERE FOR YOU STAND while you wait for your table. Although the food was good, I have been to other resteraunts on that street, that are more accomodating and food is just as good if not better, therefore, despite the food being good I would not recommend it over the others that are nearby."

"If you are looking for great food at reasonable prices, this family owned and run restaurant is the place to go. We have been going here for years and always enjoy the homey atmosphere and great waitresses. It's small restaurant with a big heart. And...they have valet parking so don't worry about trying to find a place to park in The Heart of Italy!"
