Well, something has happened since this past July. I have been visiting this establishment for years, sometimes eating there 4 or 5 times in a week's stay. This time once was too many.
The menu remains unchanged (for years) and lacks any sort of innovation. Many items are pre prepped, and frozen into bags like the "fresh" fruti di mare, or frozen in portion sized tin trays, like the still chilled in the middle eggplant. I could go on but I am saddened to see this...
There is one woman ("C") that holds this place together and she was off, as I was abruptly told buy the co-owner non-cooking brother "M". The service staff for the most part seem new and is not trained enough to take the floor. Appetizers and entrees arrive with Roulette style of service -- Who had the eggplant? and who was this for?. They do this while our friend "M" badgers the staff from behind with his quirkey gestures and barking tone. I'm guessing he is part of the turnover problem; or it could be his non stop (attempt at) loudly singing along with the looped sound track of "Nobody's Italian Favorites" that's keeping him from working the floor while he struts around like some aged three featherd peacock.
This place is dead unless it rekindles and modernizes the passion that made it stand out as it did once in the past. I wanted it to be great, and we tried real hard to find just one good memory to take back from this visit.
Sadly, this resturant has serinaded itself into sunsets past....
