“Rapid Deterioration”
Reviewed November 26, 2012 via mobile

Fourth visit and last. Quality of food has declined each time and today's server had an air of arrogance beyond belief.

“Good but could be great”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Atmosphere was amazing. Outdoor seating perfect for romantic night out. Food was good but the menu was a bit confusing. Service was average. I felt like the staff didnt want to be there. Everything inside the restaurant is white, but not everything was as clean as it should be. The open kitchen off the dinning area was very cool.

“Great patio, terrible service and incredibly RUDE owner”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

I'll keep this short and to the point. This restaurant is something you should avoid if you value service, integrity and customer care. Owner Eric DeBonis wants to bring the Italian slow food movement to Salt Lake City. Unfortunately Eric, slow food does not mean bad service. Slow food also does not mean sloppy presentations and mediocrity. It also does not mean that you are entitled to be demeaning and brash with your PAYING customers. I would suggest anyone looking for good Italian try Fresco just down the street.

“Excellent Food and Location”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

Best Patio in SLC. The food is great, authentic Italian. Do not expect Olive Garden. Super fresh ingredients and great cocktails. One of my favorites places to eat.......

“Overpriced experience”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

I think this place is really missing out on being a great restaurant. Although after horrible experiences at the Paris, I can understand that the owner isn't really all that concerned with bad reviews or awful service. I'm assuming he has the money to throw caring out the window. First of all let me say something about the meatball appetizer with focaccia bread... REALLY? I think that dish has to be the biggest ripoff ever. I think the service is cold, the food is just OK and it's just a shame because the location and restaurant are so appealing. I will not give money to this restauranteur again. And by his lack of response on any of the poor reviews, you can tell he doesn't care about them either.

I do, however, wish (some) people that give poor reviews would have actually eaten at the restaurant to review it.
