The night started off on the wrong foot whe they seated us 45 minutes after our Open table reservation. The carbonara was the saltiest thing I have had in restaurant in years. Completely subpar and overpriced in a town where Italian restaurants are a dime...More

The vibe in RPM was of a newyork restaurant. Please make a reservation before you go. Recommended. Drinks and food are really good. The server recommended veg dishes for us and they were all superb. The fried artichokes are a must. Loved the experience.

I cannot speak about all the servers but if you are asigned “Jacqui” watch out. She has no clue whatsoever about hospitality, manners or service. Her holier than thou attitude ruins your night. Food is very good but one could expect professional service for the...More

The food, service and ambiance here are beyond expectations. The food is authentic, fresh, imaginative and delicious. We had a party of 12 for this dinner, and the group was handled smoothly and efficiently, and everything was perfect. I can't rave enough about it!

RPM Italian presents cuisine that is modern in approach and Italian in spirit, with dishes intended to be shared. Chef partner Doug Psaltis has created a menu which features a variety of cold and hot antipasti, more than a dozen freshly prepared in-house pastas, and a selection of salads, prime steaks, chops and slow-roasted meats. The restaurant also has an open bar area where guests can order a signature cocktail, or enjoy a glass of wine from their extensive list. Sophisticated and chic, yet unpretentious, RPM Italian is perfect for a great meal or late night out.
