Agree staff is arrogant and self absorbed.
However, food is excellent and cocktails tasty.
Pasta dishes are huge and pasta not over cooked. Seafood soup is better than any I've had at finest italian restaurants.
Too bad the service is lacking.
Waitstaff has no knowledge of food ingredients in each dish. Attitudes and egos run rampant in the service.

L'hostaria was very crowded and noisy last evening. A sign or activity speaks volumes. Though the wait staff was busy meeting the needs of the customers, they managed to provide our family with a delightful evening.

I started with a salad of mixed greens, instead of arugula, with gorgonzola, and pecans since it was such a big size. It was tasty, but I have had better salads. My entree was the Fettuccine Bolognese, and it was delicious. The pana cotta was a perfect dessert choice.

I have found that large tables in restaurants usually signal a noisy evening. Still, the food was good as was the wine.

The coffee here was great! My husband ordered a latte at the bar and it was wonderful. Just like being back in Italy!

This place was packed when we went. Our concierge recommended it and was right. It's great! The dining room would make a nice romantic dinner. We ate in the bar as the prices are significantly cheaper. We had to wait for seating (in the off season!) but it was worth it. The steak was decent but the pasta was great! Go with the more authentic Italian dishes. Great focaccia bread too!

this restaurant is hidden downstairs.. however once inside, it is a beautiful dinning room with a great and yummy menu. if you wish to sit in bar, there is a bar menu which is less expensive than the dining room. i had an amazing homemade pasta and the seafood soup was amazing too.
we were NOT rushed and dined for hours. the waitstaff is very attentive and kind. will go again.
