Ridiculously slow service during a time when it wasn't busy. It took the waitress literally 30 minutes to figure out the check. Food was mediocre and the place smelled like sewer gas. Not a place I plan to visit again.

absolutely a great ambiance and equally great food. Moderately priced. Been there twice and the food is the best Italian for miles! Martini's made perfectly with a $5 special on Mondays.

Yes, they take reservations on a Saturday night. I would suggest you call before Saturday, unless you like eating very late or waiting a long time for a table.
