ate here on a thursday night and the place was quite empty. problem is, you can't tell until you enter as its downstairs. the missus had veal parmigiana which was okay at best, and i had the chicken marsala which was, without question, the blandest meal i have ever eaten in an italian restaurant. it was just a plate of two chicken breasts, absolutely covered in mushrooms. i happened to be really hungry but i didn't even eat half of it because it was so dull and flavourless.

I took my wife there for her birthday, and was rather disappointed. The service was very slow, and the food was mediocre. It was not a very special birthday meal at all. In fact I had to apologize to my wife for not taking her somewhere better. I don’t think that I will be going back.

Went to this restaurant before going to the theater. The waitress asked us up front if we were going to a play so we could get to the curtain in time. The food was average, but the prices were relatively inexpensive by Chicago standards. They even brought my daughter a piece of cake for her 21st birthday

Went with my husband.
He ordered lasagne and I chose mushroom risotto.
Great if you like boiled rice and mushrooms.
It was dry and tasteless.
When I complained to the waiter he said he doesn't recommend risotto to UK visitors or those who have visited Italy! The American risotto is not the same!!!!!!!!!!
Show your passport!
