We ate a late lunch here today. Our waitress (blonde hair- don't recall name) was pure attitude. When I asked for a taste of a couple of the wines (by the glass) before ordering one, she was obviously put out. There's simply no reason for a server to make a guest feel uncomfortable like that. When I pointed out that our olive oil container was empty, she took it away and didn't give us another (we were the only ones in the restaurant, and there were identical containers on every table). I had to grab one from another table myself. The pasta, although delicious, was a very small portion (we recently ate a very good Italian restaurant in Yorkville, and the portion was twice the size of this one). The restaurant is beautiful-- it's a shame they treat people so poorly (per the other reviews, as well).
