“Average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

Had dinner here and the food was so-so, nothing spacial, not bad though. Wine was a bit on the expensive side no real inexpensive alternatives.

“About as Italian as fish and chips...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

Terrible terrible food. Beef carpaccio was swimming in balsamic and swamped with Parmesan. Lobster ravioli awlful beyond words: the pasta may have been fresh once but it certainly wasn't today - a heavy, slightly chewy texture to it. The filling was a tasteless mulch with a slight whiff of fish. The sauce was a bright, creamy, heavy, cloying gloop that left me feeling queasy. The bread had clearly come out of the freezer before being heated up because it was hard and chewy on the outside but with cold butter on the inside. Service very over eager with the main course being delivered the very moment the first plate was removed. I passed on desert.

“Perfect outdoor view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012 via mobile

We stopped during some shopping and this was a great spot to sit outside and people watch. The service was great and so was the panini's.

“Want jazz with dinner?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

Good pricing and location - quick service clean restaurant and lively. Does have a wine bar but whne the musci is on your are right there up front and it may be a little loud if conversation is your plan. Would go back. Food was delicious and served hot.
