The staff was wonderful and very attentive. It was busy so great service goes a long way. My pasta was a little dry. Perhaps it had been sitting for a bit? Not sure. The other 3 people that were with us really liked their meals. Worth a second try.

On this visit I had a small meal--a salad and calamari. The salad had pumpkin seeds and turnips on it and was so delicious. The calamari looked different than it had the other two times I got it, but it was so delicious. Last time it was more covered with sauce, this time the sauce was at the bottom but... More

We visited the restaurant before a show at the Quicken Loans arena. Our reservations were for 2 hours before hand, we thought this was plenty of time.......how wrong?! Our appetiser of fried rice balls with marinara sauce arrived almost instantly and was delicious. I thought this was a good sign and couldn't wait for our mains. 1 hour later, we... More

Hosted a dinner for 47 people. The staff, service and entire experience from start to finish was excellent. We pre-selected 3 appetizers, 4 entrees, and 3 desserts for a smaller menu and offered an open bar with beer and wine. Our group was alone in the basement dining space. The wine selection was delicious, entrees all came out at the... More

What a gem, finding this place! We started with the cheese board, which had some different cheeses to try, and our server did a fabulous job describing them. I had the Turkey Osso Bucco over risotto. Excellent. My husband had the lamb with sweet potatoes and broccolinni- it was supposed to be brussel sprouts, but they made the change for... More

Good service but not a "must eat at restaurant" in Cleveland. Drop in only if it handy or raining. Good service. Accommodating in that they served a steak that was only on their dinner menu at lunch time and I give them credit for it. Also, they did not have A1 sauce and the chef created a sauce that sure...

Was looking forward to this on my trip back to my hometown. I was not impressed.! I had Col Buco with slow roasted pork shoulder. It was a corkscrew type of pasta with pork shoulder but the problem was it was swimming in sauce . Was not impressed. The others I dined with were ok with their entrees but not... More

In another city this restaurant would be very good, but not here. They have too much competition here in Cleveland, and they are suffering because of that. Service was good.

We had a business dinner with a couple of colleagues and I must say, it was great. They have a great selection of wines and spirits. The appetizers and the cheese selection was great too. I had ordered the salmon platter and I must say, it was perfect. My business partners had ordered some pasta dishes and they said were... More
