The food was a 4 - had a salad and the soup of the day. The service was a 2 - nice, but spotty and lots of waiting time in between visits from the wait staff. We got to the restaurant about 20 minutes before they started serving food, which was fine because we intended to order a drink first. They told us we could sit wherever we liked. We asked if sitting in the loft overlooking the food prep was ok, and the bartender assured us it was. Great view and good atmosphere . . . but we were out of sight/out of mind. The food was very good, so we may try this again to see if service improves.

This is usually our Go-To place to eat. The patio outside is great as is the inside in the winter.
The food is great - we always get the Grotto Azura salad which is amazing. The pizza selection is limited but all good.
Great restaurant overall.

The pizza here is something special. I am a meat eater but was dining with family members that were were dieting and vegetarian. Therefore, we had the margherita pizza. I didn't even miss meat. The pizza was that great. I normally don't rave about pizza but this was very tasty.

I must be getting picky as I age. The candle in the seating area by the bar had gone out and the server had difficulty finding a replacement. She ultimately did. The sparkling wine came in a regular wine glass, points off. That allows the bubbles to dissipate too quickly. The excuse was "we are out of champagne glasses." It took far to long to get cheese and peppers with the excellent pizza. The food was brought by someone who looked to be managerial, but before she could get back to us, she schmoozed the next table extensively, and seemed to forget her promise to "be right back." In a perfect world, the condiments would have been brought with the pizza. Our server was bubbly, efficient, charming. Place is nearby and appealing, but this is not the first visit where we noticed that they just miss having it as together as one might hope and expect. Good pizza, nicely presented.
