We have visited this restaurant several times since it opened, and was always impressed by the quality of the food and friendly service. It was a small space, reminiscent of what you would find on many side streets through out Italy.
The restaurant is quite popular, and has recently grown in size. The quaintness has gone, replaced by an upscale big-city restaurant with prices to match. We stopped by recently for a quick lunch and were surprised at the changes. Even though the restaurant was less than half full, the service was slow and uneven. Some couples who arrived after us had their meals before our order was even taken. The decor is very hard, meaning it is loud and difficult to carry on a conversation. For us, the biggest surprise was the wine prices. Glasses of wine range from $12-15 (for only 6 oz) - granted it was premium wine, but a reasonably priced house wine would have sufficed with the pizza we ordered. It is not often that you pay the same price for a small glass of wine as you do for your entire meal.
The pizzas are still good. Fresh ingredients and thin crust, cooked in their wood burning oven. And the knives are still not sharp - instead of cutting your food, it is shredded as you tug away and the food slides on and off your plate. We mentioned this to our server, who said management was aware of the problem but had done nothing to fix it.
