I'm baffled how anyone could rate this restaurant higher than one star. (It deserves zero but unfortunately that's not an option). I got the pasta sampler - 3 types of pasta of your choice. All 3 were bad, the only edible one was a simple pasta with tomato sauce but I can get better out of a jar. The worst one on the platter is what they call "carbonara" they should be ashamed to call themselves an Italian restaurant based on this dish alone. The eggs were completely scrambled, almost as if they did it on purpose. Picture pasta (overcooked) with heavy cream, panchetta (so little it was almost impossible to find) and a plate of scrambled eggs mixed together....ugh. Carpaccio appetizer was a joke, not sure what it was but I believe it was sliced (cooked) roast beef over greens with no seasoning. My companion got a mixed seafood dish - we both laughed out loud when it arrived. There was barely any seafood in it (and I believe it was one of the specials - so it wasn't cheap). The little seafood there was in the dish was a joke. The clams were the size of a quarter or smaller - not normal little necks or anything, I've never seen clams so tiny in my life, they might has well used the little ones you find at the shore. The shrimp - same thing, overcooked and curled up like the letter O and the size of a nickel. You couldn't pay me to eat here again. To top it all off the service was beyond horrible. Our server had an attitude and was never around (even though there were only 2 tables and 2 servers). Hostess was rude. Not even Robert Irvine could fix this trainwreck.
