Pasta full of large hunks of black pepper (not specified in menu description). Caesar salad dressing thin and devoid of garlic. Overpriced for what you get (bearing in mind the location). Tables too close together.

It has unique dishes.
Being on the second floor of the mall, it gives you a unique view for the fountain. It is a bit pricy.

I have visited this place on the recommendation of a friend, been there 3 times and all 3 times we were ignored for over 10 minutes until the menu's arrived, the food is great but over all experience was very poor.

No matter how good the food is, if your not greeted and taken care of then the visit wont be good.

Also, this restaurant has (after 7pm) a minimum charge per person, which is okay, but visit I the place at around 6pm, and being ignored with no menus (for 25 minutes) to order and having the waiter come and tell us there is a minimum charge is plain RUDE as it says 7pm on the menu itself, i dont know if he was trying to make us pay more or he was just ignorant about his own menu.

We went in at around 11:30 am, no customers, place was not busy.
We were barely greeted and felt almost that we are bothering them in their silent hibernation.
Table cloths were dirty and un-ironed, silver ware unpolished, crumbs on the table.
Whole place looks run down and the biggest joke is that the price of the the exact same coffee doubles at lunch time - only God understands this logic.
Much better to go to Armani cafe or Fauchon. Don't waste your time with Joe.
