“So good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Great food, waitstaff was very knowledgable and friendly, food was really good, prices are very reasonable. I really liked the atmospher, seens like a lot of restaurants these days just pack in the tables but here there was ample room and it still felt cozy. I will be returning.

“Over-rated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

I had the lamb sausage pizza - it was very greasy and the center of the pizza dough was barely even cooked - it was basically raw and soggy. They other thing that drives me nuts is when restaurants do pizza but do not have the correct box to take it home. They put three pieces in a small black box stacked on top of eachother and they were all stuck together and gross at home. My wife got the scallops and they had a delicious flavor, however they were extremely gritty. Anytime you cook scallops the first step it to thoroughly rinse them to remove the sand and grit. It looks like they skipped that step.

“delicious and great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

this meal experience was fantastic. the food was exceptional. the bread was warm, the steaks were done per instruction and melted in your mouth, and the lobster tails with truffle risotto were sinful. we were seated in a quieter area, as per our request (dining with a senior), and our server was very attentive and personable - no attitude! only criticism is everything was awfully salty. everyone noticed it - the meat the vegetables, the potatoes, everything. not enough to put a damper on the evening, just enough for a second cocktail!
