The servers and bussers made absolutely no attempt to (quietly) place the dishes in the bus tubs. They threw them in with no regard for how loud they were being. The servers were also gathered...

My spouse and I usually go on a date night. Last time, I took my 5 year old niece. We had a window table. She loved ordering her own pasta dish. (You choose what type of pasta, sauce and ingredients). Very kid friendly. She adored the food and watching the street activity (dogs being walked, families with baby carriages). The... More
