Heard from a friend that this is restaurant is a must-try, so the husband and I headed here for dinner on a Friday night. As expected, the place was full. The person who greeted us at the door was apologetic and told us it might be a 20-min wait, so he took our number and we trooped over to Acacia Hotel across the street for some pastries to go (it's 50% off on pastries at the lobby after 8pm). Sure enough, Mona Lisa called in about 15 minutes to tell us our table was ready.
We were readily ushered to a reserved booth near the windows and were served with the usual mini bread slices and spreads (pesto, butter and tomato) while waiting for our orders. We had the barbecue chicken pizza (which was only so-so for me) and the spaghetti con polpettine (which was delicious). Pizza was thin-crust and had about 12 slices. My husband had about 9 slices, so I suppose he enjoyed his choice. I admittedly finished off the pasta and meatballs with gusto.
I noticed that though the restaurant was full and was seemingly patronized mostly by families and big groups that night, tables were far apart enough to let you enjoy private conversations with your company. Service is quick and politely preemptive, which shows good training on customer needs. Lighting is dim without it being dark. It's place you'd want to linger in with coffee and dessert after dinner, or wine. Prices are not cheap but portions are to share. I'd dine here again.
