My wife and I escaped for a much needed night away and I had really high hopes for this restaurant. What a disappointment! We had reservations, but when we arrived there was nobody at the welcome desk. After looking around for about ten minutes, we finally got ahold of a waiter who could seat us. As he was preparing our table, someone came up, whispered something to him, and he seated someone else instead! After we were finally seated, our food was served quickly but was lousy. The pizza was a blackened crisp and the Penne with fennell sausage was the very definition of bland. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I have been here a few times. They have wonderful food. They have an extensive wine list. The food is authentic and great. The calamari is awesome. They have great appetizers too.

This is probably one of the best, most authentic Italian restaurants around. Fabulous homemade pastas, lots of fresh ingredients make for standout entrees. Veal with truffle oil is amazingly flavorful. Also try the Linguine Ravello. Solid wine list, attentive and friendly service. Makes you feel like you're in Italy. The place to go for the food. Atmosphere is in this newish building is fine (and a good place to carry on a conversation), but not exactly romantic. Good option for dinner followed by movies at the Guild or book browsing at Kepler's.

Great environment, very attentive service, food is amazing. You can choose from a variety of authentic italian dishes such as gnochis, veal, steaks, pastas, thin crust wood fired pizzas, a full bar, and great wine selection, and desserts(chocolate souffles are to die for) and cappucinos. Great place for a romantic dinner or a friends night out. Very affordable. I also love there outdoor seating and the sound of the train whistling by. Definitely worth trying, you'll be addicted.

You want flavor, come to Gamberdellas. This is Italian fare with a twist. Rich aromas, textures, and taste may lead you to abandon other italian eateries. It's addictive.
