My friends and family have been telling me that I needed to try this restaurant for years. I finally decided to go and I wasn't that impressed. It is loud and crowded. They pack in the tables and chairs to ensure they get as many people in as they can. With all of the people and the music blaring I could barely hear the person at my table. We had to speak a talk loudly just to hear one another.
The service isn't bad. It was full and our server had a lot of tables. They have a pretty decent server team structure but it wasn't working properly the entire time. I understand things happen though. We were overlooked a few times. We got the expected apologies and it wasn't a big deal.
I ordered the cannelloni and my guest ordered a veal dish. My food was ok. It wasn't anywhere near great. I have had much better. The veal dish was said to be good but not of the caliber of what others said it would be. They do give big portions however, I don't think it's worth the price. I don't mind paying for good food but this wasn't that great to be. It was on the level of much cheaper chains.
I will not go back.
