I've written about this restaurant before and want to start by saying the food here is A-MAZING. I've occassionally had a dish that was a little too salty, but for the most part the menu, including desserts, is delicious and flavorful. I agree with those who say the service is not consistent, but I like the food well enough to let that go. We often order take out.
The first time we went they had a garlic bread as an app. special and we fell in love. I've tried to get it every time I've gone back, and it's only been on the menu a couple of times. They've also had a cheese bread that is wonderful, so that will do if the garlic bread is not available. BUT, it seems like they rarely have a bread special and there is for sure not one on the regular menu. We went for New Year's Eve and were told, "no, we usually don't have a bread to order as we serve bread with dipping oil." I would buy that if the bread they serve was exceptionally good, but it's just average white bread. An Italian restaurant needs an exceptional bread (Bona Vita in Enfield serves an awesome bread with dipping sauce along with other selections from the menu) but Typical is not serving a bread in that category. That's like a French restaurant with no wine.
I'll give back the two stars when they come to the realization that garlic bread is a staple for any good Italian restaurant. We don't mind paying for it--just make it available.
