We dined with friends on Saturday, January 28th -- we had not been here for quite a while. While waiting for our friends, we enjoyed drinks at the bar. There was a good selection of wines by the glass and my husband found a single malt scotch that he hadn't tried before, which is hard to do in Harrisburg.

The calamari appetizer was the best dish we had. The veal medici was tasty but slightly overwhelmed by the bechamel sauce. That seemed generally to be the theme -- heavy on sauces. Salads were not included with the pasta dishes.

The bar staff was very friendly, but our waiter got a little overwhelmed when several tables were all seated at the same time. If you're looking for traditional Italian in Harrisburg, I think Sammy's is better and Mangia Qui is heads and shoulders above the rest.

This is quite possibly the worst restaurant in Harrisburg. The wait staff forgot us, which was evident by our empty glasses throughout the meal. The food was inedible. When we received our bill, we weren't even asked why there was at least 90% of our entree still sitting on our plate and we didn't ask for it to be boxed up.

Stopped in for lunch on a weekday. Even though it seemed busy we were seated relatively quickly. I'm a pretty patient guy but I thought it took a little too long for our food to come out. I realize good food takes time to prepare, but this food was just okay, not great. We would eat somewhere else on Restaurant Row the next time we are in Harrisburg.

Great place to go if you want a quiet atmosphere and a good wine selection. Last time there, I had sea bass with spinach and sundried tomatoes which was excellent. Normally I get crabcakes or the veal saltimbocca which are both good as well. A little pricey for the quantities, but overall a good place to dine.
