When I sat down to do this review I was shocked to learn that this restaurant was ranked to highly. The food was good but hardly great. The seafood lasagna was expensive but the only seafood I could identify was the smoke salmon the chef placed on top. The taste was blah and totally uninspiring. My colleague said the same about his food. The atmosphere was very formal in the standard Chinese way, wooden tables, chairs slightly too big, etc. But there was nothing Itslian about it. When we sat down, the floor was full of the prior customer's dinner including pieces of shrimp. I am not sure what's more disturbing, people not picking up after themselves, or the restaurant not properly cleaning tables and floors.
I won't be back in this restaurant mainly because of the high prices they are charging. For a lower price, I might be willing to put up with average food and a less than fully sanitary environment.
