I had high hopes for this restaurant with all the rave reviews on tripadvisor and also from fellow colleagues. If you're going to go, make sure you get reservations in advance, or you may be looking at a 2 hour wait.
We were seated near the entrance of the restaurant under a tent like structure with heating lamps outside. The chairs were akin to something at an outdoor bbq. Our waiter finally comes over and we were ready to order an appetizer but hadn't decided on drinks. "well I'm not going to put in items out of order, so I'll come back when you're ready to order drinks." Really? You can't be bothered to bring hungry people an appetizer? We ordered the buttermilk biscuits, la quercia speck & red pepper jelly starter along with the roasted veal meatballs with potato puree. The biscuits were quite tasty, but you only get three and they are very tiny! The speck (basically ham), was a little fatty for my taste, but my companions liked it. If you like meatballs, I'm sure you will enjoy the veal. I found them to be a little soggy.
For my main dish, I ordered the local halibut, farro & baby zucchini dish. I requested a substitution for the farro for potatoes and after a very snotty look by the waiter, said "I'll try." Bizarre. When I got my dish, of course no potatoes, only farro. Which is not tasty by the way. Way too chewy and flavorless. I was told the chef "didn't have time" to make the substitution. For such a "nice" restaurant, you would think they would be more accommodating.
The halibut was prepared nicely and the highlight of the evening. The remainder of the food and the service was severely lacking. I will not be going back to this establishment.
