The food is great, and big big plates of food are served no matter what you order.... however,,,,
the rest. is small!!!!! the owner (lisa) was running around telling each cust. who came in without a reservation, that the table was only avail for 15 min or 30 min, it was RUDE!!! do not sit people in the rest. if you are worried it will interfere with your RESERVATION PROCESS!!!!
we ended up being able to sit at the window, which i would say to ask for!!!!, nice view of the street
a few of the bus boys were attentive and asked us if we wanted more bread etc which was nice! The waitress we ended up having , was the hostess also, and YES SHE WAS SWEET AND POLITE, her attentiveness was far from what we deserved for a 110$ meal for two people.
we ordered a bottle of wine , she brought it and sat it on the table, :( yes, she poured a tiny for me to try, and then never ever came back to refill my wine, or ask if we wanted more when the bottle was empty!!! I EVENTUALLY (when she brought the bill) asked for another wine by the glass and she promptly brought it ....
The mussels were great!! WOW!!! RED SAUCED AND GARLIC WITH ALSO VEGGIES, amazing!
the food is almost too much, i literally wanted to eat it all, and it just made myself and husband ill after bc they serve soooooooooo much in a plate! YES, i know, we can control ourselves and that is not the rest. issue, but it would look better on the plates also, if it was maybe smaller portions and adjust the price if needed......... would have rather ordered 4 small things to share then two huge plates of food!
BREAD IS AMAZING! WOW!~
the italy street is a joke tho, nothing worth really spending a eve walking around at, shops were a joke...... and every rest was basically looking the same with menu lists........ not to mention it was maybe a 2 mile length total!
there is not much to do when at the cleveland clinic , so yes this is a nice place to go walk around, but compared to the places we have had italian food and all, this is not SOMETHING WONDERFUL!
sorry, just how we felt.
