“We were suggested to go to this...”
Reviewed May 4, 2010

We were suggested to go to this restaurant by our concierge. The place is also listed as a piano bar. The service was very nice but the atmosphere is terrible. I'm not talking about the decor or the fact its in a strip mall. I mean the synthesizer piano music. It was so depressing for a Saturday night. Funny really. But not when you are on vacation. So I suggest you skip this one. Just too depressing.

“Beware of the overpriced specials”
Reviewed March 28, 2010

The friendly waiter cites and recommends specials without prices....Then, the specials are over twice as expensive as everything else on the menu. Very average food at a very high prices. We felt we were ripped off. I mean there's no view or anything to warrant the high prices.

“Superb service,value”
Reviewed January 15, 2010

Upscale atmosphere, quiet music, attentive service - you expect it at an expensive restaurant. But when full meals between 4 and 6 PM run only $13.50 - 17, you have a very unusual experience. The salad, with fresh greens and homemade vinaigrette was among the best I've ever had in a restaurant. The soup was made from fresh vegetables, and quite different from the usual minestrone. The "early" entrees tend to the Italian basics -veal parmigiana, etc ., and are well prepared in smaller portions. An unusual touch is an "early bird" wine and dessert menu, basically at half price. The ricotta cheese cake was outstanding, and at $3 for a generous slice, a great value. Be sure to ask for the early dining menu - they don't automatically provide it. You won't be disappointed.

“Stay away and eat next door - no Italian cooking here!!”
Reviewed January 3, 2010

We attend after the conceirge of our hotel recommended this for a nice Italian meal with a piano bar. The singer was off key, and that should have been the first hint to turn around. The service was very good but unfortunately what they brought was bland and no respectable Italian would serve. The soup was lacking flavour and the paste sauce tasted out of a jar. Even the meat dishes were unrecognizable. Did not order dessert thank god.
