Had an excellent meal there last night. great pasta, fresh gnocci, lotsa seafood, reasonable prices, great service. I will have a review up online in the coming days. i wanted to get this message up because one of the only online reviews seems totally off the mark to me.

      I can't wait to try it, and I'm looking forward to your review. Spartaco was only so-so for me, and pricey, so I;m glad it's been rebooted under its original ownership. It's on my list...

        I have been waiting to go to hear about the change, so thank you! What kind of price differences would you say in comparision to Spartaco's?

          never went to Spartaco's, but most entrees were below $15.50. apps and salads $7 or $8. house wines $5 a glass. All bottles are $26-$28.

            Thanks. I have been craving some gnocchi and was not sure where to get it fresh, and not pre-frozen.

              I think the food there is fabulous. The squid is tender and lovely, the crab and lobster ravioli is heavenly, the tuna tartar has a strange and delightful flavor combo. One of the best meals that I have in a long time.
