Unfortunately I can't rate the food or drinks here as I didn't get that far into my visit.
See--when I go out solo I don't like to sit at a table. I figured a seat at the small bar, a glass of wine and some good Italian food sounded great---but, the bar was cluttered with menus, coats, glassware and other items.
I stood near, browsing a menu, assuming that maybe someone would acknowledge me and clear a spot for me---3 people passed by and didn't even greet me. So, my Italian dinner turned into a great meal at a place nearby instead.
