“Just flew in, first resturant we chose but staff was rude at the door.”
Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

We had just flew in from the eastern time zone and we were looking for "dinner" aka food. We were greeted at the door by a guy behind the bar. We asked if they were serving dinner since we were not from here but we were hungry it was 4pm local time. That was met with a comment and sneer that we weren't at home we were in CA. Rather than just saying they were serving lunch we had to drag that out of him. We decided to just stay even though the rudeness. My gnocchi was cooked perfect however it was swimming in artichoke juice that tasted like it was from a jar. The Alfredo that was ordered tasted of flour and milk. Gluten free pasta was not chewable. Too bad for the owners to have such a jerk working for them.

“Very good food, good prices”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

They have a good menu, with a fine wine list. Nice atmosphere, not too pricey. Creme brulee was excellent.

“large portions, decent atmosphere and service”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

waitress service was friendly and professional. drinks arrived quickly for our large party, and then food fast but not too fast. having been warned that the fritto misto app was large, I was blown away by the portion size, even if the app was 7/10. Main was decent if not exceptional, and accompanying red wine was just fine. large portions meant noone ordered desserts. Overall, a solid option for an Italian American meal.
