“Going back to Martinis”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Had a rare date night with my wife here this past Saturday night. The hostess and wait staff were very good. I ordered the caprese salad, but some tomatoes were under-ripe. My wife had a different salad, and asked for no goat cheese. After a few bites, she tasted goat cheese, which had obviously been put on and then removed. Her skimpy chicken carbonara ($24), was so-so. My $38, supposedly 8-oz filet, with exactly 13 well-cooked sea beans, and a small handful of overcooked red potatoes was ordered medium rare, but ended up being nearly raw in the middle. They were busy, and I didn't want to make a fuss, so I choked down as much as I could before having them cook the center again. Apologies were made, but no offer of giving me something off for the error. We definitely will never eat here again. Going back to Martinis. I don't mind spending a lot for a great meal, but they have a lot of nerve charging $38 for a steak without a chef who knows how to judge the doneness of a steak. Simply unacceptable.

“Attempts at excellence fall short”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

The menu is enticing but thee food is ony average. The owner seems to do a better jobv with his stalls at the North Market. ALthough the menu features many classic dishes familar to Italian Americans, this is not mama's food. I prefer to buy the ingredients at Pastaria Secunda at the North Market and assemble them at home.

“Solid choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

We love to go here for a great meal and good wine/drinks. Service is outstanding. Have been about 5 times and never had a bad meal. Menu is a little limited, but the specials do not disappoint.

“Food is okay, but not Italian”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

The food is not bad, actually it is okay. On the other hand it is far from Italian food, only the dishes names are Italian. In addition, the content of the food is not exactly what the menu promises. The white wine was served ice-cold.

“Great food & fantastic service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

One of the best wait people I have ever met. She was really terrific. The food was yummy. Loved the lobster ravioli and the parpardelle. Watermelon gazpacho was the special and it was quite delicious.
