We had dinner here Saturday night to celebrate our birthdays and really enjoyed the food and experience. We splurged on dessert and drinks, since it was a special occasion. The Mojito Italiano was our favorite, but the Aria Bellini was also good. We split the Pear and Goat Cheese Salad, and then had the Butternut Squash Ravioli (prepared vegetarian, per request) and the Scallop Risotto. We also got the Nutella Bread Pudding, which was delicious.
Our server, Chad, was very attentive and personable. The ambiance was great, with fun details like the retro/industrial hanging lights. The only negative aspect, which almost soiled the entire experience for us since it was our first impression, was the hostess. She was brusque and somewhat condescending that we hadn't made reservations; we arrived a little after 5:30p, though, and there was hardly anyone there. Luckily, Chad and the food redeemed our experience.
