Good Italian

I couldn't tell if this was a white table restaurant or casual or all of the above. The place was hopping in the front of the restaurant, but we were seated in the way back (because we were tourists with children all wearing shorts?), where the atmosphere was more like a quiet cave.

Very disappointing. Although we had reservations, the five of us were totally ignored by the wait staff until the hostess finally arrived to take us to a table (under a freezing air vent). The service was extremely slow - it took approximately 90 minutes for our very tepid food to arrive. Perhaps it would have been tasty if it had... More

We love this restaurant. Depending on when you go will depend on your service. If they are busy then it will take longer but it is worth the wait. Food has always been to our specifications and liking. It is a nice place for a relaxing and delicious time.

Food was good. Kids liked the spaghetti. My salad was fine, nothing special. The cannelloni were really good. Unfortunately, while our waitress was very pleasant, the kitchen was really backed up and our food took almost an hour. Other than the wait, the restaurant and food were good.

Dinner for two. The food and service were adequate. My entree stated it was a 12z NY Strip steak within a pasta preparation. It had at least 2-3 ouces of gristle and fat. The waiter was inexperienced. I had to ask for several things that should have been automatic. When I told him to look at the fat and gristle,... More

Went on a Sunday with 2 friends after a long day of sightseeing. We wanted some real food, we walked in asked for a table for 3. She sat us right by the door, the place was empty, it was a table that was very inconveniently situated. So I asked her if we could sit someplace else. Well after that... More
