The location and the patio are great. But...
The waitress was pushy and not helpful, could not answer the simplest questions about the menu, tried too hard to steer our choices of food and drinks... Even getting a bottle of sparkling water turned out to be impossible - we were told they only serve "organic soda water which is better"... And then the food came. What was supposed to be a risotto turned out to be mushy tasteless rice, tomato salad did not have two slices of tomato that were of the comparable shape or size - seemed they chopped it with an axe - and they never brought the olive oil we asked for as it came sans dressing, etc. etc.
When it was time to pay the bill and I took out my credit card the owner (I presume) waived his hand in front of my face and said "we don't do plastic here" and walked away without answering where we could find the nearest ATM.
I have eaten here in August 2010 and don't remember having such a poor experience, to be fair, but I will definitely not come back here again and will recommend to anyone who asks to stay away.
