Love your restaurant but thought it was very noisy -it echoes because there is nothing to soak up the sound

Great food and a cozy environment. A bit too expensive for me to come as often as I would like.

Very enjoyable dinner. Food and wine were great, reception and service were superb. Unfortunately, a bit noisy at the time - several tables of very loud families with young children.

Resturant seems to be in a rustic condition so it needs upgrading. It is not at all classic is it is just rustic and very old. Now about the main menus, pizza toppings were generously put however the pizza dough does not have any Chewyness nor a Crustyness at all. Either way, the dough of the pizza is an essential part and it seems that the chef may only be Italian but not a well trained Pizza Dough maker. So if you want to have , delicate tastes you need to do somthing about the dough quality. It is definately not Italian quality and it needs an upgrade. However, the chowder soup was very well presented with all the seafoods and vegetables flavours combined well enough to satisfy anybody. The Gnocchi was too over cooked. So the softness of the potato gnocchi was to mashed up so pls be careful with that. Anyhow, the overall service rating was highly friendly. The staffs were attentive. So in order for the owner to attrack more people you definately need to do something about the food itself. I hope this comment gives you a helpful idea to improve. Dough quality improvement is essential for running an italian resturant!!
