I recently took my 91-year-old mother; it's easily accessible for walkers and the food has always been consistently good. This time did not disappoint. I was happy to see our favourite appetizer was still on the menu--giant shrimp on puff pastry in a creamy Sambuca sauce. It is absolutely amazing! Once you try it, you will never forget it! And...

We had a reservation for 5 people and this Thursday evening they were not very busy. We waited 30 minutes for our drinks and two were simply sodas! After ordering, the meals were another 30 plus minute wait. Three of us had ordered pizza which arrived cold and tasted like cardboard. Service was very slow and terrible. After asking for... More

This restaurant is not what it used to be. I have dined at the Riverside location many times, and have even ordered take out, however, service and quality have gone downhill. Last night I ordered two pizzas and a Caesar salad to go. The salad was the most disappointing of the entire meal. We spent more time picking out brown,... More

Was once a really good bet, but lately it has slipped to below average - both the Rivergate and the Byward Market locations. Friendly but quite slow service, average meals, and high prices relative to similar types of restaurants no longer make it the experience it once was.

Based on the fact we have visited this restaurant a number of times over the past two or three years, I guess it must be okay—although part of what it has going for it is its proximity to our home: it's a decent place and we don't have to go too far. The atmosphere is quite pleasant, and though it's... More

The dining room is nicely presented with an upstairs and downstairs option. Beautiful white washed stone walls and nice hard wood flooring make for comfortable setting. Tables are a little tight but service is very friendly and informed. Food was delicious, I had the Tortellini with blue cheese that was incredible. Over all a Great dinner!

I was there for the first time yesterday and will definitely go again. Excellent Veal Marsala and salad. Waitress was perfect.. there when you needed service, friendly and unobtrusive. Busy Saturday night but service and ambience still excellent.

I had the Allo Nanno pasta dish and my wife had the special of the day which was chicken,mushroom sauce and pinenuts with pasta with truffle oil on top and a salad too. Both of the dishes came very hot and very good taste too. I also added a salad with my meal, also both of the salads were fresh... More
