“2012. A bunch of chaotic kids running the Cedar Ave restaurant”
Reviewed May 4, 2012 via mobile

Disturbing to eat at the bar and observe how unorganized and not so clean it is. The "boss" (immature kid) he calls himself, yells, and it's like one big party. Guess what? The food is good, so the cooks must be the only true professional adults there. Service is not good. Takes forever to get a drink. Need to try the Palm Ave one because the menu is good.

“Nice atmosphere, slow service.”
Reviewed December 27, 2011

We went for a late lunch (1pm) on a Tuesday. There were plenty of tables and only one person in line ahead of us. We waited quite awhile for the first part of our meal and actually had to get up and inquire about it. The food was fine when it cam, but we asked for dressing on the side and they didn't follow through on that. Overall, it's an ok place.

“Okay food with poor service”
Reviewed December 27, 2011

My wife and I stopped by this week to visit cafe and have lunch. We waited about 10 minutes to place our order. We ordered wine and they did not have one we wanted. They replaced with higher price choice which was nice. The food took little longer than normal and was okay. I had the pizza and wife had Greek salad. I requested salad dressing on side and they did not do it. I have had better experiences at the restaurant in the past. I do not recommend this restaurant.

“Service has improved and food is still unique Italian and very good.”
Reviewed July 3, 2011

The prior review about service was accurate in its time but things have improved significantly. To be fair service still only rates a 3 but not because of staff attitude which is great: it's all in the numbers - not enough of them to fill a candy dish. If you are accustomed to European service you will not be offended. now the food which is why I primarily dine-out. It is very good. The dishes are a unique twist on Italian. In some if not most respects "Americanized" but quite enjoyable. Both locations serve a Mediterranean salmon which is flavorful and as close to fresh as one can get in Fresno. The short ribs with pasta or mashes potatoes is a return-to-order dish, meaning you willowy likely want to come back for it. The site is always cool during the hot summer months in spite of high ceilings and both locations are cozy like a coffee shop but pleasant at which to dine on above-average chow.

“Big Dissapointment”
Reviewed August 1, 2010

Although the atmosphere was nice, the service was awful. It was as if we were an afterthought. The server never asked if we wanted appetizers, we got our food after one of our party complained that we hadn't been served yet. At the end of our meal, some of our party had dessert included, she only took their order and had to be called back to get the rest of our dessert orders. I will say the gelato was good. Some of the food was good but other dishes were below par. I don't plan on eating there ever again.
