It pains me to give this restaurant less than 100%. I'm a local, and over the years I've had many romantic Valentine's Day dinners and birthdays here, as well as weeknight dinners. Since the restaurant expanded many years ago, I've seen a steady decline in personal service, atmosphere and a corresponding huge increase in price. In my opinion, an "intimate" Italian restaurant which charges $20+ for a vegetarian pasta dish, and around $30 for fish or meat, should NOT have a TV screen which is inescapable. We changed tables three times to avoid the TV, and still had to see it. The owner used to meet everyone at the door and kiss the ladies' hands. OK it's corny, but I loved it and it made me feel special and welcomed. No greeter any more. Wait staff is in pairs, and they couldn't have been less interested in us, except to get us done and out. I'm sorry to say, this will no longer be a go-to "special occasion" destination, we may not go back at all.
