“Deception!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Pizza was not cooked enough everything tasted the same, for a place that wants to keep a certain standing this is not proper behaviour.

“Fantastic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Great bistro atmosphere. Friendly staff. Amazing food. The veal is "to die for". Reminds me of the good restaurants in Italy.

“Pretty good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

I've eaten here a couple of times and it's a decent place for a plate of pasta. They make their own homemade pasta and the menu offers a varity of pastas and sauces. It's one of the few places I've eaten pasta in the area, where the tomato sauce is very tasty and not acidy. The bread is fresh and warm and has a sprinkling of oil, corse salt and rosemary. The service is good and prompt. In the summer they set up the tables in the courtyard and it's a very pleasant place to dine.

“Not impressed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

We ordered the pizza. It was bland. When we sat ourselves on the patio, that was almost empty, we were asked to move to a different table on the patio. We were not impressed with the service and therefore did not leave a tip.

“A mediocher dining experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

The food was decidedly average. We started with caesar salads that were heavy on anchovy paste and light enough on the garlic that you wouldn't know it was there. The lettuce was fresh and the dressing decent, it just wasn't really a caesar. My son had one of the stuffed pasta entrees that would have been quite good if some sugar had been added to the tomato sauce, which was otherwise a bit too tart. My wife and I both had pasta with artichokes, sun dried tomatoes and goat cheese. My pasta was slightly undercooked and I would have preferred artichokes that didn't come from a marinated bottle (like the no name cheapies that you buy at the supermarket). The service was fast and very good. I wouldn't go back again, but only because there have to be better choices around at a similar price point.
