Very challenging to park near this restaurant that is tucked in the side of a building. The service was very polite and attentive. The ambiance was very pleasant. Nice Italian wine selections including by the glass. Limited entree choices and they were pricey compared to the very small portions served. The food was tasty but I’m unlikely to return due to the expense and difficulty of parking.

We were celebrating a birthday for one of my sons and he chose C'era Una Volta. Based on previous enjoyed meals there, this measured up. We turned out to be 30 minutes late and although we called, they were very nice about it and did not make us feel badly.

Nice decoration, food Italian (Italian chef) and authentic. Waiter was super friendly and made good conversation. Only comment was that our mains were served while we were still having our starters. Menu is fairly short, which means ingredients should be fresh...

Enjoyed dinner alfresco, protected from the evening breeze by a vine-covered arbor. There was a heater, but we didn’t need it to stay comfortable. Watching the local folks going about their Saturday evening business felt like being in Italy. Our friend said the meal was just like her Italian grandmother’s. Not fancy, but delicious. The three course fixed price dinner for $39 was a bargain. Full portions of your choice of numerous salads, three main courses, and several desserts. We started with a very fresh salumni platter, with prosciutto, chunks of good Reggiano, several salamis, all sliced to order, served with housemade focaccia. The gnocchi with Gorgonzola and walnuts passed my friend’s “Nonna” test with f,ting colors. Not gummy, and the Gorgonzola was not harsh. Three of us ordered the prix fix dinner with a variety of salads, with Porcini risotto and braised on-the-bone pork ribs for a main. Our other companion ordered the eggplant parmigiana and loved it. The ribs were succulent, served with its sauce, plus roasted vegetables and really good roasted potatoes. The risotto was perfectly cooked - a bit of a bite to the rice, and saucy, as it should be when cooked to order. We shared two desserts from the prix fix: housemade tiramisu and affogato made with hazelnut gelato with a splash of Frangelico and a cup of espresso poured over. Heavenly.

Really enjoy this little gem of a dining experience that helps transport me back to Italy. We sat outside on the patio that is so lovely with the lights and brick and is so quiet. The food and service is exceptional. Thank goodness for C'ere Una Volta!

The food was wonderful we had berrata as an appetizer, my guest had the egg plant Parmesan and I had the raviolis. We ended with cream Brulé and the lava cake that was excellent I would do that again. The service was over attentive but very good. We enjoyed it very much and will definitely return.

We were very disappointed with C'era Una Volta. The taste of the entrees was okay, but the portions were very small for an adult and inadequate. The prices were way too high for what was received. The service was only fair and it took way too long to receive simple items like bread, tea, or coffee. Don't waste your money at this restrauant there are too many other good places to dine at far less cost.

We went to a special brunch and the restaurant was full, some even seating in the patio dining area. Good food, good atmosphere, fun & friendly patrons and staff. It was quite busy and the wait staff had to work extra hard. The owner was very welcoming. Very good overall experience.

Spectacular meal. What we had: We each got a glass of house wine--3 of us with the red blend and Mom with the Cab. It was a special Mother's Day menu, with the dishes served family style, which fit us very well. We got a smoked-salmon appetizer to start that was lovely, then a gnocchi with a gorgonzola cream sauce. Then we got a mozzarella ravioli with a smoked salmon sauce, and finally an eggplant parmigiana with caponata (eggplant/veg stew) on the side, with garlic-sauteed spinach.

A wonderful meal, and just the right amount of food. Mom got super tired, so we skipped dessert, although the lemon cake sounded just delectable. Service was excellent.

Went for Mother's day and the it wasn't really busy. They seemed to be understaffed for the day. Service was very slow and had to ask multiple times for coffee that had been ordered. Took over an hour to get our food and when it came 2 dishes were way over cooked and my egg dish was cold. I informed them that my dish was cold and they took it back and just put in the microwave instead of redoing the dish. They did finally redo the dish but brought me a different version then what I had ordered. It was better but still wasn't right. In their defense they did comp 1/2 of our meal and were apologetic.

I came for Mother’s Day Brunch with my family. The special brunch menu was good and they were able to accommodate my vegan sister’s dietary requests. They did mix-up one of our orders but quickly fixed. All in all it was a good brunch spot and we will be back.

We dined early on a Thursday evening before a play and were the only party (6) there, so the noise level was just the conversation from our own table. Another couple came in before we left, but we were surprised at the low dinner attendance. Food was very good: eggplant parmesan (2), gnocchi, lasagne & mushroom risotto. My risotto was very tasty, with lots of mushrooms, however I've had creamier risotto.
We'd go again.

Try to go on a night when the Warriors are playing and "The Avengers: Endgame" opens. Even though there were only a few reservations available, the restaurant was mostly empty! One of the specials, pork sausage stuffed pork tenderloin, was outstanding.

We enjoyed Rudy's explanations of the Italian wine regions and the wine/food he had selected. After dessert was served, he joined us at the table which was also lovely. We would have preferred the fourth course to be meat or chicken instead of a another pasta course and would gladly have paid a little more for this. A few small suggestions regarding ambiance: remove extra place settings from the table and space the remaining settings out evenly. There were eight of us, but the table was set for ten. This left one couple rather isolated at the end of the table. Also, there were beautiful candles on the table but they never got lit. Overall, a very nice experience. We'll be back!

This restaurant was the worst food we've ever had, the 3 of us all had lasagna I'm pretty sure Chef Boyardee would have been infinitely better, the portions were all different, I had 2 skinny slabs, the other guest had this weird rectangular blob, and bechamel sauce, meat sauce noodles moosh, grotesque. I think the chef needs to go back to culinary school for a very long time.

The setting is exquisite reminding me of small restaurants in Florence Italy. Service was very personal, attentive and for preparations according to our dietary needs (lactose intolerant) was assisted by a visit from a chef owner. Focaccia like bread (excellent!) and mustard- olive oil dip started meal. The house salad was ample and delicious, others liked their Caesar w. Anchovies and minestrone. The in-house made tagliatelle was excellent with meat ragu as was substituted pesto sauce; eggplant parmigiana was very good as were side spinach and variety of vegetables. Only glitch was computer was down and bill was hand added, needed addition corrections and Visa machine didn’t work. Great atmosphere and we’ll be back.

we have dined at C'era Una Volta many times, without a doubt the food & presentation exceeded prior diners, the staff is very attentive and helpful, the evening special dinner was exceptional, by that I mean it compares to some of the fabulous meals I have enjoyed in Tuscany region of Italy.
For a very special night with "killer" authentic Italian food, you can't beat C"era Una Volta.
