Dinner tonight was quite good. The sausage appetizer was delicious, especially with the slight char on the ends. I'd go back for that on it's own. Tagliatelle with a touch of lemon was fantastic. The service was ok, the room a little warm, and the noise was ridiculous. It was really loud in the small dining room. Despite the noise, I'd still go back for perfectly done pasta, kissed with lemon and the sea.

i'm quite critical of restaurants, having worked in many, myself, but from start to finish, this was utterly sublime. in the most unpretentious and welcoming manner, every single person in this place executed their role sublimely. highlights include, but aren't limited to, the service - spectacular, the carpaccio - perfect, the gnocchi, which are among the best i've ever had and the rabbit, again, among the best i've ever had the pleasure of eating. not one thing would i change about this place. run, don't walk, you owe it to yourself.

After viewing Chef Baldino's credentials and tasting his food it is very clear he knows how to run the "back of the house." The "front", however, is a different matter altogether.

The space was disappointing and uncomfortable.

There is no air conditioning nor ventilation to speak of, which turns the small space into a sweat lodge.

The noise level makes it impossible to hold a conversation without yelling, which then only adds to the issue.

The crowded conditions and "no seat cushion" chairs make for a very uncomfortable experience.

There is one unisex restroom for both customers and staff. Enough said.

There is no justification for the high prices.

If you're debating on wether or not to go, my advice is to pass and visit one of the many other fine restaurants in Collingswood. You've been warned. Caveat Emptor!

I know I won't be returning until some major changes are made to improve the atmosphere and overall dining experience.

Incredible offerings - very creative Italian. Also, gluten free option - the pistachio pasta was to die for! The shrimp and cannelloni beans can be served as main dish or appetizer. You must save room for desserts. BYOB; unobtrusive music on some nights. Small place - need reservations.

The food is fantastic. The gnocchi is to die for. The best I have ever had in the US. The lemon pasta is very favorful. The black ink pasta just like in Italy. You can not go wrong with any choice. Thevsteak was well seasoned. The Orata was dressed with capers, potatoes, zucchini and an olive oil, herbs and a touch of butter. Very moisted and cooked to perfection. Even the expresso was perfect. My only complaint is the noise level. But if you want the best food yiu can overlook the noise.
