What a neighborhood gem! My aunt and I came for dinner on a friend's recommendation. We were looking for a nice meal close to Capital University where we were to attend an event. Well, we found it! Great food in a rustic Italian environment complete with old family photos adorning the walls. After a round of deliciously tasty cocktails we... More

We called and made a reservation for 6:15 on a Saturday, which they accepted without comment. We arrived at 6:15, gave our name, and were told they "would get to us." Within the next ten minutes, two other couples arrived and were quickly seated. We went back to the hostess stand and they looked at us as if they had... More

My wife and I had a very nice dinner at Giuseppe's Ritrovo on Valentine's Day. Although I called for a reservation 10 days in advance, we ended up with a 6:00 PM reservation, an indication of their popularity. I had the veal piccata and my wife ordered the eggplant parmesan, both traditional dishes and exceedingly well done. My wife was... More

We have visited GR a couple of times now. Great location and very good atmosphere. Very impressed by the skills of their professional bartender and there cocktails are top notch. The pastas are delicious and reasonably priced. They have one of the best happy hours in town. Will be back!

Never, ever disappointed. Have tried many pasta dishes and they are always tops. The Clam Linguini has so many clams, it is to die for. Pizza is outstanding.

Went on a weeknight and fortunately had reservations. It appeared that it was a full house. Had a lightly breaded chicken dish with a light salad. Found it quite good and the portion was more than sufficient. Another in my party had the soup which was outstanding. Service was good and attentive. Cons: Was a bit on the pricey side,... More

I think they changed the bread since I ate there last. My daughter's pizza was outstanding. It had shrimp and mushrooms...so good! I ordered penne with chicken and spinach. The chicken was just ok. I looked at it closely, because it tasted like the chicken was bought already cooked and sliced. I will order something else next time. Love the... More

Stopped in for lunch after a visit to Franklin Park Conservatory. Very laid back, casual, no one (including staff) was in much of a hurry, I get the sense it is as much a hangout as a place to dine. Soups were good, salads also (beet salad in particular).

Not sure how this places gets such good reviews. The food is very mediocre at best. The chairs have a fabric that is peeling as well as many rips in booths. I ordered the veal piccata very small piece of meat small portion of pasta for over 20. Partner ordered spaghetti and meat balls way to salty. We will not... More
