The service was atrocious as was the food. They could not get the orders right or the bills. We were a group of people and everyone was disappointed. The restaurant was only recently opened and surely has some kinks to work out but the food was such a disappointment that we will not go back.

Was exciting about using a LivingSocial coupon for Dinner for two which included 2 salads, 2 pasta dishes, 2 glasses of wine and 1 dessert to share. This was our first visit and thought it would be the perfect 31st anniversary dinner. First their website is a bit deceiving, it makes it look like their establishement is more upclass than your typical pizza spot, but in reality that pretty much is what it was....I was overdressed. Briefly the meal....2 glasses of wine, ok selection to choose from. Salads, waited about 10 mintues for our salads after our order was placed. Basic lots of greens, nothing special. Pasta dishes...I ordered spaghetti bolognaisse and asked to have capallenni instead and was told the only pasta they had was "spaghetti". That baffled me, never knew an Italian restaurant that only had spaghetti. The bolognaisse was bland, did not see nor taste any of the veggies it should have had. It tasted like a bland meat sauce. My husbands manacotti was pretty much the same, lots of cheese but the sauce was bland. For dessert again we were surprised that there were only two options, cannoli or tiramisu. We went with the tiramisu to share and it seriously arrived frozen! Frozen! They should have at least taken the time to pull it out of the freezer and thawed it before serving. Service was ok at times a bit slow (salads). The highlight of the evening when was another large party decided to do a dance routine where he lifted her above his head and spun her around in the middle of the restaurant, laughing loudly and evidently enjoying their wine.....needless to say I was definitely overdressed.
