    We had a great brunch. Nothing crazy but everything was well executed and the staff was helpful and friendly. Great downtown breakfast/brunch option.

    Really enjoyed the beet salad! It was small though (appetizer sized) and I could have ate a lot more! The calamari was not great. My boyfriend had the mixed seafood pasta and loved it.

    Great food. If you like to cook, sit at the counter behind the cooking station and have a great meal while watching the chefs cook!! I have gotten a few cooking tips from them

    I tried this place for lunch! Sit at the bar side so that you can order the small plates as well as the lunch menu. Oysters!

    Nothing good to talk about except for the gelato. I ordered spaghetti and meatballs, and the meat was totally dry. The minestrone soup tastes like vegetables floating in water. Don't eat here.

    Bruschetta is amazing! Great spicy bloody marys. Slow service, Crystal chicken was lack luster, panini toasted too much and tasted burnt. Friendly atmosphere.

    Clams were old, dirty, and had a very bitter taste while the broth tasted like water with a touch of tomato paste. My gf and I got food poisoning from the carpaccio. Stay away

    Take the "menu bar" at the counter. It's cheaper and more friendly. "fritto misto" is delicious, "chrystal's chicken" also but too spicy for us.

    The Bruschetta and the Bucatini Arrabbiata is AMAZING! Staff was great and my water cup was never empty! Totally worth the hour wait! :)

    The Service was good and fast, but is a poor food. Far far away from italian cusine, and comparing it to the Italy's food art is just a awful way to make money

    Bring your local friends for a happy hour place that's not over-priced, has attentive and friendly service, plus plenty of seating.

    Fig pizza! The atmosphere is the one of a tourist restaurant, the food is average, but the fig pizza does worth the while...

    From a true Italian, I really do not recommend this restaurant. Overcooked pasta and inappropriate flavors...

    "Oh. The bill we snidly pointed out that was sitting in front of you, was wrong. We need to charge you for the pizza we forgot to put in as an order."
