My husband and I had been wanted to eat here for YEARS
and never made it happen until this past weekend. Unfortunately,
I can't say it was worth the wait. I had read the other reviews
which warned of the loud acoustics in this place, but that usually doesn't
bother us, so I didn't think much of it. HOLY COW--this place is LOUD!
I couldn't even hear my friend sitting across the table from me.
Everyone enjoyed their food, but this is an instance where I have to say,
value/portions is not worth the price you pay. One of my friends ordered
chicken fettuccini alfredo. It was $17, did not include soup or salad, and was
a tiny portion. I think he finished in 4 minutes and said he could have eaten
3 more plates of it. (And he is a skinny guy!) None of the dinners include
anything beside bread, and if you order a small garden salad ahead of your meal,
it is an extra $6! The waitress never asked if anyone wanted a refill on soda. Our waters were not refilled. This is one thing that really bothers me when dining out. The waitress brought me something other than what I ordered for dinner. She asked if I would like to try the meal she brought if it was on the house, which was a nice gesture. On a positive note, our table WAS waiting for us when we arrived at 5:55pm for our 6pm reservations. The 4 of us were all STARVING 2 hours later. We all felt that there are enough good Italian places around where you can get more for your money for the same quality of food. Unfortunately, I would not go back.
