San Antonio is not known for their Italian restaurants, so keep that in mind when reading this review. Absolutely nothing in this restaurant compares to a good Italian meal in St. Louis, Chicago, etc. The restaurant itself is easy to find, just down the street from the liquor stores and Tiffany’s Cabaret. That said, the veal marsala was ok, bordering on bad. The calamari fritti was good, the salads were ok, the bread/oil were good, and the seafood stew was good (the prawns in there were mighty tasty). Despite being on time for the reservations, the host tried the typical, old-school approach of pushing us to the bar to buy a few drinks while we “waited” for our table to be ready. I was in the middle of explaining to the bar maid that we couldn’t rightly choose a bottle of wine without first determining what entrees we were having (before she offered us dinner menus to review at the bar!), when the host quickly came up and said that our table was magically ready at that moment. Overall, I’d recommend sticking with Mexican food when in San Antonio.
