While it was pleasant dining outside on a warm summer night, the ambiance did not outweigh the overpriced entrees. $20 for a serving of lasagna and $15 for a 12 inch personal Hawaiian pizza? The kicker was that the $2.50 side salad we added to our meals consisted of a lot of romaine lettuce, 2 thin slices of cucumber, and 1 tomato wedge. That's it. No carrots, no croutons. Just a lot of lettuce, a few cucumbers and a piece of tomato. My husband and I ordered the "house italian" salad dressing which, we were advised, was "oil and vinegar based". No. It was just oil and vinegar. Apparently, whoever made the salads did not stir or shake the dressing before pouring it on our salads. I had oil and some vinegar and my husband had vinegar with some oil and globs of crumbly pink stuff which we assumed was Parmesan cheese which had been sitting in the red vinegar-based dressing. Must have been the last 2 servings of the "house italian". We were also served a small loaf of room temperature bread and plain olive oil before the meal which was promptly cleared away when the entrees arrived. Our server was friendly and efficient but the meal was overpriced and merely average.
