“WARNING: The chef is KING”
Reviewed February 29, 2012

This is really a special place. Not you, the guest, but THE CHEF is king. Do not criticize his food, do not ask for extra condiment, do not ask to hold or add any items in the plate you are ordering, and you will be fine: you'll have wonderful tasting dish with perfect, very Italian food. If you do not stick to the unwritten policies of the kitchen though, you are scolded at and YOU ARE OUT. Literally: I've seen guests leaving in tears, in shock.

“Don't go there!!!”
Reviewed August 6, 2009

These people really don't care wether you have a good time or not. They just care about themselves and their stupit houserules (the really have a lot of those). Food is ok, charming perhaps, but the service is horrible: careless, lazy, rude; they make you feel you are an intruder and they don't want you there. So don't eat here, it's a big waste of money, time and your good mood.

“Food nice, but if the service could not be worse”
Reviewed March 9, 2009

This is a cozy Italian restaurant that serves very decent -yet overpriced- food.

However, I have never been insulted and mistreated in such a way. Had I been as polite as any of them were, we would most certainly ended fist fighting. I even heard them insulting me in Italian when I ordered some tap water, which they refused to serve me.

Do yourself a favor and don't set foot in the place.

I love this little place! It's tiny and charming, the food is fantastic and reasonable priced, we went 2 nights in a row, I could have eaten there everyday. Everything is prepared fresh behind this counter and is often times served to you by the person who made it. Don't miss this little gem!
