Spur of the moment choice for dinner never been to before restaurant. Never really heard of for that matter. I understand its an Italian chain restaurant. It was pretty busy but seating was fairly quick so I was pleasently surprized. The decor was nice. I liked the open kitchen and rustic villa feel it gives. However, seating arrangement needs to be revised. It just felt to cluttered and one can hardly hear themselves think let along converse with others at the table. The waiteress we had was wonderful and attentive but not overbearing. So with a busy night she did very well.
I must say that the roll of herb bread they serve was excellent as if it had just been pulled out of the oven. It was still warm and aromatic with a slight brushing of olive oil. For the appetizers we decided on the macaroni bites and bruschetta. I really enjoyed the macaroni bites which were little cheese macaroni balls covered in bread crumbs, very delightful. As for the bruschetta, there isn't much to say but disappointed. It appears that the bruschetta was something of a lost art for the kitchen. One can not simply call overloading a slice of buttered french bread with diced tomatoes and no seasoning bruschetta. It seems like that was a last minute tossed together idea with no real taste. Not impressed! The main course was the pan seared pork chop. It was pleasing but not really something to be memorable of. It was somewhat moistly tender with the remaining covered up by the sauce covering the bland taste.
