After four visits, I'm under-whelmed overall considering a lot of positive press. Good & Bad in my experience - Nicely appointed, open and modern, with a good menu, nice bar area and reasonable wine list. We had one very disappointing experience that has tainted my opinion. In that case we experienced an excessive wait, 30-minute estimate that turned into an hour. Ok, they can’t control that but 100% off in their estimating? I checked in multiple times with the “girls” at the hostess podium who seem way more interested in their smart phones and chit-chat. My pasta dish was cold and I returned it, they took it back, fluffed it up and it was better. Our waiter, who was friendly enough and apologized for the cold pasta and long wait, was simply sweating all over himself while serving us. Not really pleasant or appetizing for the four of us who visited. The other occasions we visited, with at least four –eight people, the meal was fine, the wine better, and they do have a good location, but on weekends expect to wait. Will I go back?, I am sure, but there are better Italian options in Charlottesville, this one just has a convenient spot in the new shopping development.
