Went here on a Saturday night with another couple and our adult child. While I should have realized that there was a good possibility of sitting upstairs I hadn't been to Little Italy in years forgot. So, if you're not good with stairs please keep...that in mind. We were seated at a lovely round table and approached within minutes by a waitperson which was refreshing. Plates of green beans and potatoes were placed on the table, not sure what they were supposed to taste like however they were super bland and mediocre. I can't imagine how much they throw away that never gets eaten.
Appetizers: we got the Calamari, Antipasta, Bruscetta, house salad, grilled ceaser (a special) and garlic bread without cheese. Plus house bread was served along with individual plates of olive oil (nice touch). Apps were delicious. Can not complain at all except house salad was originally over dressed and we got it replaced with dressing on the side.
Mains: Pasta Putenesca, Veal Saltimboca, Veal Baltimore, Pepper Filet, and not sure the name but basically fettuccine Alfredo with shrimp and crab. Everything was delicious. I'm a veal Saltimboca snob and this was one of the best I've had.
Wine was good. Old Fashioned was mediocre.
Dessert: This was by far the most disappointing part of the evening. Gelato was not creamy and tasted more like ice milk. Profiteroles were drenched in mediocre chocolate and the custard was flavorless. Both the original and espresso canoli were mediocre. Only halfway reorderable dessert was the tiramisu.
Service: Besides for a small who's our waitperson snafu service was good. Our waitress clearly was newer to fine dining but was pleasant, knowledgeable, and efficient. Both the manager and chef checked in on us to make sure everything was to our liking. Could not complain.
All in all... with Vaccaros up the street I'd absolutely come for dinner again but go to Vaccaros for dessert.More
