“Disappointed”
Reviewed January 21, 2012

We liked the offer of a wine tasting when we sat down (and we were seated very quickly) and we did order wine, although not the one we tasted. They should have a choice of half carafe for two people. We both love their salad and it was as good as it usually is. I ordered a dish of mussels, clams and shrimp over capellini in a marinara sauce. It came with angel hair instead. Other dishes stated angel hair. I ordered this one because it did not. I know it's strange but I really dislike angel hair. They said they would change it but all they had as a sub were small shells. By the time that came my husband had finished his meal. The marinara sauce over the shells was excellent. In fact I enjoyed the whole meal but the presentation of it had been ruined because all they did was scrape the seafood off the angel hair and then put it back onto the dish with the shells. There was still angel hair attached to the seafood.
