“Mediocre”
Reviewed July 19, 2008

This is a pleasant place to go and eat with good service, however the quality of the food although above average by American standards is still mediocre.

We tried the calamari as a starter which was hit and miss with about 60% over cooked and rubbery. The brochetta was nothing to write home about. Presentation on both dishes was poor.

For the main course we tried the lobster ravioli which again was bland and the presentation resembled a sloppy pudding.

Canolloni was beefy...but nothing else in the flavours jumped out. Everything was drenched in the tomatoe sauce......so basically all you could taste was tomato and bland beef.

Excellent service at an affordable price. The food and the view of the canal are the perfect romantic setting, along with the live pianist.
