Ate here twice on my work trip. First time as a group and they did a great job. Second time, the night before I left. Since I was by myself I ate in the bar area. After I was seated I waited for someone to...approach me to take my order. After a long while the manager came by and took my drink order, then another 20 minutes went by and he returned to see if anyone came to get my dinner order. Sadly no, so he took the order. He did comp my food but I was slightly disappointed as the bar tender just seemed too busy to even acknowledge me sitting there. I returned to this restaurant because the food is delicious, and I would have given 5 stars but I was tired and wanted to eat and leave and it took way longer bec5of the lack of attention to guest sitting at a table alone.More

Over priced and average. Having been to Italy twice, my expectations are high. For the price it was disappointing. Food was average but not worth the price. Service was decent. Best thing about the meal was the wine.

We did not care for the pastas here (over-cooked and with too much watery tomato sauce), but we found several of the starters to be very good: the antipasto tray, the stuffed meatballs and shrimp with salad greens. The minestrone and the cabrese and arugula...with gorgonzola salads are nice. The tournedos are good. Did not care for their marsala sauce on the veal cutlets. Nice desserts in general.More

We ate here last evening. It is a very nice establishment and the service is superb. The wine was also very good. We ordered the flat bread which was not edible and the lasagna was terrible. Maybe a new chef would make this place awesome.More

We had dinner last night with a large group. The food was EXCELLENT and the service was even better. It is very difficult to find excellent service with a large group but they did it! The favorites of the evening were the ink infused pasta...with melt in your mouth lobster, salmon, and bolognese. We had such a wonderful evening, two of us returned tonight for a quiet dinner. We were thrilled to have the same server. Would recommend to anyone. One of our friends was with us and had an allergy. The chef accommodated and her meal was delicious.More

Small Italian restaurant at Rosen Shingle Creek hotel. Given hotel also a convention center very frequently have large groups dining which means the area is LOUD both in the restaurant and in the bar area. Tables for 2 limited and in poor locations. At our...first visit this was especially the case- sat near large loud group. Waitress offered a couple of options- most as bad as current situation but the offered to set up a table on their balcony. We opted for that and were so pleased, It was like having our own private dining- lovely music, very good food, and waitress was still attentive, though we also tried to be efficient with her time. Calamari was lovely, so was short rib bolognese. Worth saving room for dessert too. Is on the expensive side cost wiseMore

We were trapped by heavy downpours which although intermittent, seemed to coincide with our breaks between the meetings at the conference. The restaurant served excellent food, but was crowded, and we had to wait about 20 minutes.More
