Dinner for six. Two meals were served incorrectly. Food was good once we got it. Service was prompt and friendly. I don't eat pasta so my only option was a salad. I opted for the spinach salad with grilled chicken. It was really good. Probably...More

I would of given it a 3 1/2 but it doesn't give you that choice. The food is always good but it's not exceptional. There are so many good Italian places, it's not on the top of our restaurant list.

Ok place to eat but lacks tastes that excite. Our two dishes over-spiced or under-flavored leaving us with more disappointment than satisfaction.

I've eaten here twice in the last 2 days - both times lunches with friends. Twenty-third Ave (AKA Trendy-Third) is a tough place to find a parking spot but this is on Quimby which makes it easier. They have a $7.00 lunch menu where you...More
