I'm going to be honest---the prices are a bit disturbing. $20 for a chicken entree is definitely TOP of the barrel even in big cities. However, you don't walk away thinking that it definitely isn't worth it. On the other hand i'm not sure it's definitely worth it either. The owner of this establishment has a chance to make a killing and a lot of happy customers if he lowered his prices 3-4 dollars per entree. Was my chicken dish delicious? Yes. Was it amazing for $20? No. Would it have been amazing for $16? Yes. I recommend he make his prices a little more in line with the community---people here do NOT like paying $20 a plate for italian food & basically have SUPER high expectations if they're going to. This place would do very well in New York City or another large city where people are more accustomed to spending this kind of money. If he wants to make it in Greenville, I would highly suggest lowering prices a little. I will say the chicken with spinach, ricotta, & rose sauce was exceptionally good though. Enough to bring me back, even at $20 a plate, but I am not the typical diner---I enjoy, understand, and appreciate the experience and freshness that comes with a $20 entree. Not necessarily true for most of my peers, especially Greenville residents.

One more tip: homemade ranch dressing. bottled ranch is definitely misplaced in a restaurant of this caliber.

My daughters ordered a different dish and were fine. Disappointing since meal was pricey. We think it was the sausage in the lasagna but will never know

This is not Italian food, this is not even close to Italian food. None of the food tastes fresh and I suspect everything is heated in a microwave. the soup tasted like it was 3 days old (it probably was).
If someone tried to serve this food in Italy they would be kicked out of the country. Terrible food, slow service and an owner who's arrogance and rudeness belongs in politics, not the service industry. Avoid this place. 1 star food at 4 star prices.
My wife was disgusted also.
