“Good place for gelato but pasta dishes lacking in taste/quality.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2010

I was in the mood for good Italian food and decided to give this place a try. When you walk in the first thing you see is their dessert case and gelatos. The atmosphere was comfortable. I ordered fettuccine alfredo $15.95, and added sausage for $4.00 extra. The pasta was slightly undercooked and the alfredo sauce was on the runny side, very little taste. The sausage added on was sliced and didn’t appear to be a full sausage. My friend ordered lobster ravioli $23.95 and it was not very fresh. So after a fairly average, unimpressive meal we decided to try dessert. Both of us ordered gelato stuff in a type of profiterole pastry for $9.95. The gelato was delicious; pastry was so/so - needed a knife to cut into the pastry. Overall, the total cost for one person for a entrée, a glass of wine, and dessert was 54.00 plus tip (soup and/or salad not included with entrees). I found the meal not worth the value and will probably not go back there on future business trips.

“inconsistent, manager/owner rude”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2009

We eat here ofter and the food is generally good, although inconsistent. On a recent visit, we sent a plate back (chicken smelled and tasted funny), the owner was rude and basically told us it was fine and to 'get over it'. We wont be going back. . . . .

“Consistantly Good Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2008

A casual atmosphere with outdoor dining as well. Food is always reliable and very good. Bring your own wine is a bonus. Bruscetta with Shrimp is a great beginning!

“Just okay”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2008

Food was good. Corking fee was ridiculous. Wait staff really good but the owner/manager is not user friendly.
