Restaurant patio is nice if a bit crowded, interior of the restaurant was also crowded and set up more like a lunchroom than a fine restaurant. The Cesear Salad for $9.50 was OK, it had some shaved parmesan, croutons were right out of a box, so nothing special and the portion so small it was not worth the price. I ordered a pasta entree, which was $18, and when I was served I was astonished at the small portion...it had to be only a cup or so of pasta. It was really good but there simply was not enough of it to fill me up. Others in my party ordered pasta also, and the sausage entree only had three small quarter sized medallions of sausage in the entire dish. They had a fish entree with three small portions of fish, and while the seabass was to die for, buttery and tasty, the other fish was nothing to write home about. The food was excellent but there simply was not enough of it, and I'm not a big eater being a 115 pound woman. Service was excellent. Our party went through three baskets of bread since the portions were so small. No pepper shakers on the tables anywhere...I usually doll up the olive oil used on the bread with a little salt and pepper but we had to ask the waiter to send the busboy over with the pepper grinder. It'd be a good place to go for a small dinner but not a good place for a group of hungry folks who have been exercising all day.
