May be it’s just our bad luck (The restaurant was busy and fully booked for a weekend evening after holidays, which was supposed to be a good sign). Although the service was very efficient and professional (comparable to the price charged), two of four entrées were below average in items of quality (material and cooking). The pumpkin raviolis were thin, cool with dry (or half cooked) skin and covered center part of a medium size plate. We usually don’t order cioppino; but since the sea bass was sold out, we gave it a try (we like Legal Seefood’s). What a disappointment! The majority of the dish was salmon which was dry; and those few tiny baby clams were very dry (must be from frozen). Fortunately its broth was tasty and with the bread, we didn’t have to order another dish. The appetizer calamari was fried right, tender with little greasy taste. The décor is fine with a $$$ restaurant, and the high celling compensates well for the overcrowded tables (hard to walk through without worrying about hitting chairs).
There are at least three similar priced Italian restaurants nearby (east, west or south of Rt 10). It will be a tough call to go back to give another try.
Service 4.5 star, food 2 star and overall 2.5 star.
