My family have been eating out every weekend for the last 5 years and this is one of the very few restaurants we haven't been to in Modesto. Nothing special. Will not go back. Basic.

Always a quality experience, with great food and service. Few tables, so be sure to make reservations, especially for Friday and Saturday nights.

A very relaxing environment after a busy day at work. The wine, appetizers, entree’s , and dessert we’re all incredible . When sitting outside the servers moved the heaters to be closer to me which was very kind of them.

The food was very delicious. Appetizer and entrees were cooked properly and were very flavorful. They have a nice wine list or you can bring your own. They have nice dessert options also. Recommend the lobster ravioli and the creme brule. Restaurant and the restrooms were clean. The staff was very friendly and have great recommendations.

Pros: we were seated promptly on a Saturday evening with no reservations. The service was good. The atmosphere was nice and there were heaters on the front patio which made it enjoyable to sit out there.Cons: it took quite awhile for our food to come out. I’m generally pretty understanding about that sort of thing, especially when it’s busy, but I think we waited around 45 minutes or so. I could’ve gotten over that, but the reason for the 3 stars is that the food just really wasn’t very good. My husband got chicken Marsala and it was really sweet which threw me off. I understand Marsala wine can be sweet or dry but I would think you’d use a dry wine for a savory dish. I got shrimp fettuccine Alfredo and it had very little flavor, like the shrimp was good but the pasta tasted like plain noodles. It wasn’t BAD per se, but I would’ve expected better. I probably won’t come here again because I make really good pasta at home for a lot less money.

So because of covid this place is now a little harder to get a table at because they are spaced 6 ft apart. But that just means a less crowded place. My only complaint was the host staff and the servers did not communicate well when we asked for more water or more drinks or more wine they ended up forgetting our request. The food was great and the server was great. They are by no means fine dining but it definitely was a nice experience. If I were able to train the staff here the right way to serve a table then this place could be a fine dining experience. We will definitely come back as they told us they will be expanding the restaurant into the next building over and they will incorporate a bar and more tables into their restaurant.

While our first 2 experiences were absolutely delightful, our last 2 experience were nothing short of a disappointment.We had made reservations for 7pm. We were repeatedly told just 5-10 more minutes while they setup our table. My husband and I ended up not being seated till almost 8:30. We saw people without reservations sat before us and it was very frustrating.Our most recent experience was with ordering take out. While my husband did originally order the wrong meal, he called to correct it. We ended up get 2 of the same wrong order. They did refund us for one if the meals but then told us they were too busy to cook the correct meal we ordered.While the food is delicious, the service and overall experience is lacking.

They have a picture of Salmon over pasta in the pic section. So I had to try it. Good choice. Dinner was a big hit. I suggest you get there early, they were getting busy fast. Service was top-notch and I left feeling real good.

This was my first time going to eat here and it was all good, me and my bf started off with appetizers of shrimp scampi (forgot to take pic) the sauce was so creamy and buttery delicious. My entrée was the lasagna, every piece was yummy. It was just to much for me so I had to take home. The service was on point always coming to refill water and soda. Will recommend to friends and family.
