Our second time here. Food still great, service still has minor, but annoying issues. They have not attained that fine line between efficiency and rushing the customer.
Once our entire group arrived we were seated promptly.
Within a minute or so our server came by and asked if we wanted some wine. My wife told her we just sat down and needed some time to look at the wine menu and say our hellos. She understood and told us about the two specials.
In an appropriate amount of time she returned and asked if we had made any decisions. We ordered the polenta appetizer along with zucchini ripiene appetizer. Our friends ordered salads. Our fault, but we wanted all of us to share the apps but the server brought salads and apps out together. Again, totally our fault in not explaining how we wanted the food served.
Once ordered our apps and salad came out quickly. Our bread was replenished along with the water several times throughout the meal. The polenta and the zucchini appetizers were excellent. Great flavor on the zucchini, I would definitely order them again.
Our entrée's consisted of the pork special and the pork spare ribs over polenta. Our friends had the cannelloni and ragu agnello. They both said they liked their dishes and finished them all.
My pork special was very flavorful. Good rosemary flavors along with mushrooms or olive tapenade etc. I thought it was totally encased in a bread crust, ala beef wellington, but it was just a slice with crust. It was very good and I would order it again.
My wife's ribs were very tender. Great flavors along with an appropriate amount.
She would later have the lemon tart along with coffee for dessert. She said the tart was "tart" but very flavorful.
Like my first line says they have not reached that comfortable line between being rushed and efficiency.
It started with what wine we wanted as soon as we sat down. As soon as we ordered our appetizers they came out very quickly. Good timing between salads and entrée. During dinner as my friend was nearing the end of her meal, another server came by and started to take here plate. She had to stop her and tell her she was still eating. Once the entrées were finished our server brought the dessert menu-no time to relax after the meal.
Again like last time, one meal did not come out at the same time as the others. This was my wife's ribs and the delay should not have been an issue since I am sure they had to slow cook them before the evening meals. As I mentioned this happened last time we dined there.
My wife and I both felt rushed. I know they are still growing and learning and I hope this will improve.
WE WILL BE BACK. The food is great the service is good but not the best that is why I did not give it 5 stars. I see the owner wandering around and speaking to people about their meals etc. I know they want their restaurant to be the best so I hope they can work out these very minor issues.
I think they are becoming very popular. You really need to call for a reservation. If you walk in you may have a long wait.
Like my last review you need to go here. Some of the best Italian in the area.
