We enjoyed our dinners in Cuoco's comfortable setting, although the ragu was a bit overdone. On the other-hand, here was a brief but judicious selection of wines, and the service was attentive.

The service was amazing. It was my wife and I's anniversary and we received lots of free food and extra services, the best and most special thing was a hand written letter from the entire staff saying happy anniversary. Our food was not great though. For $23 a plate, I expected a lot more. We both agreed we could have made better pasta dishes at home lol

Perfunctory service, four in our party ordered pasta and were disappointed due to it gummy texture. My meat was piled on the plate and was toothsome. Bummer, it used to be terrific. We're not going back.

Way overpriced for the quality. Dinner for 4 with 2 alcohol beverages and 1 dessert was
$184. My dish was pork cheeks with polenta. The cheeks were slimy, with a heavy "gravy"
the polenta tasted stale and old.

Main complaint is the menu could have used a few more non-pasta items like fish.

Excellent service with wonderful novel ice read and generally very good entres and healthy options. Entre choices are limited and a little on the small size but usually with an appetizer (meatballs are the bomb!) And or salad you'll leave full and happy.

The food is very over priced for what it is, aswell as the location. While my server was excellent, the price was not reflective of the quality of food.

New Yrs Eve dinner a la carte for 4. Everything was delicious and well presented. Antipasti: crispy octopus with blistered cannelli beans, burrata, chopped salad, meatballs. Mains: cappelleti, linguine del mare, rigatoni, ossobuca (mouth-watering). Two desserts, tasty.

Food was good but not the best I have seen compared to other Tom Douglas restaurants, thus four star instead of 5. Still excellent however.

The food and the restaurant were wonderful, however unfortunately our server seemed put out by the fact that we did not order alcohol, and alternated between trying to rush us (and turn the table) and then ignoring us. Its unfortunate because its otherwise a nice restasurant.

The food was amazing and the waitstaff was knowledgeable about Gluten Free.
Only 4 stars because the portions were very tiny. I do not like those places with over sized servings, but could have used a bit more here. All in all I would recommend to a friend.

We had a large group of 16 people at two different tables. My meal with the rigatoni was absolutely great and those who chose the butternut squash pasta were equally as happy. The downfall was the linguini with clams. They all came out al dente but every plate was to be generous, luke warm. The ambience was great and the server very nice.

We went here for my girlfriends birthday and I had the option of conveying it was her birthday when I made the reservation. The reservation was at 7:30, but due to timing, we got there about 15 minutes early - this was no issue as we were sat within 5 minutes, and to our surprise, the host had given my girlfriend a hand-signed card from the staff working that night as well as a generous baggie of their homemade rigatoni pasta that we could make ourselves! The waitress was very helpful as well and our glasses were always full and the food was fast even though there were quite a few parties there. I had the lasagna (which may be the best lasagna I have ever had) and my girlfriend had the cheese-filled tortellini (blanking on the name - it was much fancier than that). I would recommend this restaurant to anyone celebrating a special occasion, or just looking for a great spot with even better Italian food.
