My wife and I dined here recently and we were disappointed in the dinner overall. Lets start with the restaurant itself. The tables and chairs were nice, the decor is stark contemporary with no warmth or charm. The view is of a college campus so not overly picturesque. Also, we were seated at a table near the private room which looks very nice by the way, but we were next to an exit door that led to the bathroom as many people were in and out during our dinner.
We had a soup which was outstanding, greek salad (good), short rib pasta appetizer was tasty as well.
The main courses were the pork (very tasty and well prepared with a Latin flavor), my wife had the signature dish, the duck which was terrible. It was so tough almost difficult to cut through. The waiter failed to even ask why my wife didn't touch her main course.
The final element of this dinner that I will discuss is the service as the dessert isn't worth mentioning. The staff appears to be very inexperienced. The were pleasant but far from efficient and professional.
The reviews that I have read are mixed and I now understand why.
I would not make a special trip to Ursino as there are many other options in this price range that are far better. Lorena's in maplewood , serenade in Chatham, roots in summit are far superior on all fronts for a similar price range.
Sorry I really wanted to like Ursino but can't say that I do.
