“pretty good up until we got the entree”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

the lasagna and the pizza seemed to have tomato paste vs tomato sauce on them..not terrific. The steel head trout which was delicious had to fight off the competing flavors of the artichoke risotto and the tomato based tapas spread on the same plate (too many competing flavors..) Up until the entrees the meal was great.
