“Absolutely Rachet”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

This place is absolutely disgusting. The food is alright but the service ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE The owner is absolutely disgusting and definitely does not wash his hands after going to the bathroom (I've seen it for myself). His wait stuff is absolutely terrible, especially the rude snotty people he has working there. If I were you and you wanted to waste money, go to McDonalds, you'll get way better things there. It's basically Rachet and I'm definitely waiting for it to close down so the owners can finally get what they deserve!

“Awful, Terrible, Waste of $$, you name it...”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

We visited last Friday evening around 7pm, prime dining time, and the dining room was only about 25% full. During our visit, there was about 5 or 6 strikes against this place. Strike 1: bread was dry and stale, thankfully there was oil on the table. Strike 2: Asked server to put in an appetizer prior to us ordering our entrees.... she looked as us like it was an inappropriate question and said we had to put it in all together. Strike 3: Our appetizer (forget the name) was basically a grilled cheese sandwich made with Wonder bread and slices mozzarella cheese cut in half diagonally.... very disappointing. Strike 4: Salad was some field greens on a plate with some onion thrown on top.... didn't look appetizing and tasted just as bad. Strike 5: Entrees were HORRIBLE!!!!! We had the Penne Arrabiata with Shrimp and the Free Range Chicken Breast Champagne. The shrimp could have swam with the amount of soupy sauce that was on the pasta. As disappointing as the pasta with shrimp was, the chicken was even worse!!! The description of the entree on the menu was completely different than what was served. The chicken had only a few small pieces of prosciutto and was covered in the same cream sauce as the pasta with shrimp, not a champagne lemon sauce. When the server was asked she didn't have much of an explanation other than offering to replace with something else.... Why would we want more bad food?? Strike 6: Live music is overally loud. Instead of nice background music, it makes it hard to have a conversation.

STAY AWAY!!

“Italian delight”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

This is my favorite restaurant. This is not your typical Italian food that you get out of your neighborhood pizza store. It is an upscale menu of fine Italian food. Check out the daily specials and you'll find things like Oso Buco over a bed of Rosotto that is to dye for, and you have to try the meatball appetizer, it's big enough for four!
They have a little old man that sings every night. He looks like the typical grandfather and you will be shocked when he starts singing, he's great!
You will totally enjoy yourself!

“Not as good as it once was”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Cater's more to an early bird crowd these days. They changed the name but not the menu, specials the same too. Sick of eating the same things over and over. Get more creative guys and I'll come back.
