Reviews for Cinquecento

PROS: - Beautiful decor! - Great GM - Food is filling, and good (if warm) CONS: - Food is very slow (~1hr) - Food comes lukecold - Service dreadful I may not have come on the right day but I'm willing to try it again to see if they take criticism and improve.

This restaurant has enough room to host two separate private parties. We attended an event on Sunday in the upstairs location, nice light from the windows, great seating options for larger groups. The food was buffet style with a wide variety of options. Favorite was the pasta with bolognese. Bar drinks are stellar, especially the Bloody Mary. Staff is super attentive and we are definitely returning to check out the menu items.

Cinquecento honestly exceeded my expectations. I had come once before for brunch and remember thinking it was just fine. However, I came back with a friend for dinner and was really impressed. We got the warm ricotta with toast and a bruschetta as appetizers. Both were really delicious. My friend and I also shared the fettuccine with mushrooms as an entree. I was really impressed with this dish. So flavorful, the mushrooms were great and the pasta was so well cooked. For full review
