“Amazing Food & Ambiance!!!”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

What a charming little restaurant :) The food was fresh, hot & flavorful.... It was a wonderful night shared with my special someone. The service was amazing from the moment we walked in the door to the moment we left. Very helpful, knowledgable and fun host and waiter. Also there was a live guitarist playing and the mood was overall very romantic. Really enjoyed the evening and would highly recommend going.

“Live music, excellent veal, excellent dessert”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

We started with Kendall Jackson Merlot wine and started into veal entrees, parmagiano, pizzaiola and Milanese. Then everyone had dessert: raspberry sorbetto and crepes with apricot jam and whipped cream. The highlight was the live guitarist playing "golden oldies" for the appropriate audience.

“Poor Service and Food Quality”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Restaurant was empty but waiter gave us static where to sit. Ordered food for four one plate returned to kitchen sent back out not exceptable. One other plate poor quality did not eat. Waiter argued it was same as they always serve. Owner came out was rude throwing his hands in the air and walked away.

No reason ever to return.

“Rudeness of staff not worth the price”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

I came here with a group of well dressed mature adults and the treatment we received by the waitress was unbelievable. She was rude, uncaring and thoughtless. We arrived early in the evening to be told that several of the dishes had sold out. One of my friends was given a dirty fork and when she pointed it out was given a new one abruptly without an apology. The waitress also made fun of her mispronouncing the name of a dish and embarrassed her. The food was good but extremely over priced for what you receive and with the horrible service it is not worth it.

“The Service makes the meal”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

A group of us ate here in June. The food was good but not worth the rudeness of the service. On many websites I have seen the manager defend why the waitress was rude to customers... Did you have children at your table? Were you dressed poorly? I assure you we were polite and dressed well ( not that it should matter! Customers are customers). The waitress was smug and laughed when we mispronounced names on the menu and rudely corrected us . She knew what we meant!!
When the bill arrived she stood right next to the table the entire time. There were 9 of us and since she refused to split the bill it was going to take time to figure out, give us privacy. She just lingered the entire time.
There was nothing special about this place but decent service could have warranted a return visit but that's not happening. No idea how this place has lasted 20 years when there are SO many more options in this city!
