Stopped in to get a dinner to go and the hostess and bartender were fantastic while I waited for the food. It was Sunday evening and pretty quiet...thinking of going back on a Sunday night to dine in. The food was excellent!

We had not been here in years. Overall a good meal. Service was great until the server went AWOL for 25 minutes. We could see him on the phone, in a bar area and could not get his attention. It was weird. The toasted ravioli had no flavor, but the toasted bread with cheese was awesome. The main dishes were very good. The place needs a good cleaning and some touch ups of paint etc.... the easy stuff to make it better.

i would give the food a zero if i could. i could’ve cooked better food in my dorm using a microwave. if the restaurant menu was created by Kraft foods it’d still be subpar. i ordered the toasted ravioli and it tasted like unflavored soggy pizza rolls. i got a porta salad which was fine if you like purple looking ham that you can’t eat bc ur vegetarian. i got the penne with sauce and cheese and it had no flavor, it was like eating the color gray. the service was quick and the waitress was very nice. the atmosphere was like luigi’s haunted mansion and the back rooms had a baby.

We were there for restaurant week and dined from that menu. The seafood duo entree, appetizers and dessert were fabulous.

A UW campus tradition. Intimate booths facilitate good conversation. Parking: Right across the street.
