Helpful Reviews 
Via Veneto
Suzanne S. rated

Went here for a date night with the husband - as some other reviewers said, it's pretty pricey. That said, for a nice date night and delicious food, it is worth it every once in a while depending on your budget. The atmosphere is romantic and the staff were very pleasant and accommodating. My husband ordered the octopus salad and I ordered the minestrone soup to start. Both were fantastic! I had a few bites of my husband's dish and it was so good that I wanted to order a second. My minestrone was also delicious, a hearty vegetable soup with great flavor. For our mains we ordered the whole branzino special and the seafood (clams, mussels, shrimp) with spaghetti. The branzino was delicious, but a lot of work since my husband ordered it whole and had to de-bone it himself. This was his choice though, and he loved it, but just an FYI when ordering. My husband also said there was a little more salt than he would have preferred, but I tasted it and loved the salt crust, so I think that's personal preference. My spaghetti was cooked al dente and the shellfish were fresh and delicious. They also chopped up some scallops in the dish, which was a nice surprise. For dessert we had the crema di amaretto, which was creamy, rich delightfulness. Overall we really enjoyed our meal here and will be back.

Il Forno
Dominik C. rated

Great dining experience. Service was good. Despite a very busy room that night, the hostess and manager went out of their way more than once to accommodate some special needs of someone in our party, which everyone at the table really appreciated. On the food side, everything was delicious starting with the roasted veggie plate and burrata starters. The sole was as good as I've ever tasted; fresh fish, perfectly seasoned and crusted. My girlfriend opted for the osso buco risotto tossed in parmesan. A whole block of osso buco sat in the middle of her plate surrounded by a cheesy risotto infused with the flavors of the braised veal shank. In a nod to my her low-carb diet, she ate only about half of the risotto portion... which took incredible will power! Although we did not take advantage of it on this first visit, the cheese selection alone warrants another visit. And no question, there will be another visit next time I am in town!

Fritto Misto
Suzanne S. rated

For the longest time the only thing I knew about Fritto Misto was the huge crowd of people waiting outside every night for a table. We finally tried it for lunch on a weekend and we were one of only a handful of people there. I finally understand now why there's a huge line out the door! The fresh, not dried, pasta is absolutely a revelation from a restaurant. The pesto sauce was full of flavor and, despite the fact that I was planning on only eating half and saving the rest, I ended up porking the entire thing down in one sitting. Obviously, in the middle of the day, there's not much atmosphere, but I can guarantee you'll get a good pasta meal here, so if you want to brave the crowds, head here on an evening, or if you want the place to yourself, try it for lunch on a weekend
