We've wanted to visit this place in our hood for some time (reading Nick Gilman, Trip Advisor, etc)and we finally did today. After having lunch here today, I'm shocked at all the positive reviews. Certainly the ambiance is nice, but the food is really rather average. We ordered a salad romano and 2 pasta dishes. The salad was ICE BERG LETTUCE with a ton of dressing on top. We had to ask the waiter what in the devil it was!!! Next our pasta dishes arrived. Gosh, the big bowls are really nice, BUT WHERE IS THE PASTA!! The servings were SO small (and may I add, way overpriced). We were debating whether to order a pizza, b/c we were still hungry. We saw the pizzas being served, and decided not! They looked really average. (TIP: go to Don Segundo on Medellin for great Argentine pizza). On the up side; the 'vino de la casa' was delicious. So, I must say, I believe Nick Gilman may have overplayed his review on his blog about this restaurant. Maybe over time is has changed since then. Will probably not recommend to others. Maybe I'll go back for a glass of wine, and then go around the corner to Casa d'Italia or Vechio Forno for some great pasta.
