I wanted to like this place. I really did. I'm Northern Italian with my ancestors coming from Modena. I had heard it reminded you of eating at grandmothers, and it did, but my grandmother was not a great cook. She put out quite a spread but I don't remember her fondly for her cooking. We where greeted warmly by the staff. As a matter of fact the staff was great. We where given stale breads/crackers and some cheese/dip pots that had the consistency of plastic. A great veggie plate can out and I will applaud that for sure nice touch and the olive bowl as to die for. We got the pre-fix dinner after figuring it out said it was $29 on their site but when handed the menu is was now $33.00. No big deal, but the other prices where so high for a-la-carte it was our only option and really a good deal, if the food was good, but it was not and I was sad. Came because of the reviews and now I realize they didn't hit the mark. My entree was dry and tasteless and my boyfriend app was dried out and small and not edible. They call it Italian food but there was no garlic or tomato sauce in sight. The sauce on my green noodles looked like dog food with bits of carrot and had me wondering It was a 2.5 hour experience as service was slow but they give you little things along the way so we didn't mind LOL Dessert was great and biscotti saved the evening but by then we felt deflated as we prepared for the bill. The food is much better at our local Asian buffet for $10 a person and now we where facing a Benjamin because beers where $12.00 and we later realized we where charge for beverages that where supposed to be included in the pre-fix. This place has been in business over 50 years and got me wondering if something has changed recently. On the way out of the parking lot my boyfriend gasped in horror and I said "what" He said that girl next to us was on her 4th beer that's going to be $50 added on to her bill! Crazy thought but true.
