“Not to be!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We went there for the first time last Friday hoping for a real treat of a pannini.(sp) There were eight of us and what a disappointment. We waited and waited. The waitstaff was inadequate and the cook(owner) was down right insulting. When the waitress started bringing out our orders, she asked over our conversations who had what? When we were all served, the owner (cook) came out and said to us. "Now ladies, you must remember your numbers of what you ordered." I said, "what is the waitress writing down when she took our order and why can't she just read what she wrote to know who ordered what?" The food was not very appetizing and the service was not very good. Beware, if you go in with more than 2 people at a table.
