Il Cantuccio Review

Tried it out Friday night.

Must say it was rather good. Enjoyed that it was a BYOB although they give you the option of either bottled sparkling or non sparkling water... it is not optional and I'm not sure what we were charged for it. Never heard of that before. seemed suspect.

Loud and noisy but service seemed decent, although we were about 15 minutes into the dinner and I had to ask he server to please open our bottle of wine and get us some glasses.

Had the grilled octopus, nice but I was expecting something with a little more depth of flavor... this sort of tasty like tuna fish. Prefer Dmitirs to this app. One pet peeve they do not tell you the prices of any specials... we both ordered specials (myself a stuffed tortolino with prosciutto and chicken) and my daye a ziti with crab and shrimp. both dished were delicious. the bill came to just over 50 so I'm assuming with specials were in the 20 dollar range, a bit more procey than menu items so be warned if you a are on a budget. is it rude to ask for special proces?

i liked it but I think it lacked the charm of L'Angolo.I give it a "B-."
