“Dont waste your time or money.”
Reviewed November 15, 2011

The service was horrible. The food was unimpressive. The website promises free pancakes with breakfast, we never received them. I wouldn't return here, nor will my friends who are locals. We hardly saw our server. Getting cofee and water refills were impossible. We couldn't even get the check or actually pay the bill. We had to flag a server down for every part of the meal from the basics of getting water, ordering, asking for the check, then again asking her to take the payment. She even brough out four plates of food and forgot two other plates.

Horrible Horrible Horrible service for so-so food.

“Italian Dominates EuroAsian Fusion”
Reviewed August 7, 2011

THE BAD NEWS: Not much parking in the little lot; paid parking lot next door. Milano Tomato Soup was watery & out-of-the-can tangy, with cabbage. The pasta with Tomato Sauce tasted like the same Tomato Soup, sans cabbage. Hmmmm.....THE GOOD NEWS: Located by the University. Huge menu with selections of Appetizers, Salads, Chef's Selections, Main Entrees, Pizza, Risotto, Japanese-style pasta dishes, etc. Whew! Order a glass of wine (or 2) while you're trying to decide or jot your selections on table with crayons provided. They have 2-Course Selections @ $16.95 & 4-Course selections @ $20.95, which is a good deal...Cream of Mushroom Soup had lots of mushrooms, Lamb with Rosemary was generous & tender, Lamb Wellington ok if 2 riblets are enough for you, Seafood Pasta was generous with seafood but I didn't care for that Tomato Sauce (you may like the garlic cream sauce better), Pasta with Tarako (cod fish eggs) is my usual favorite if you want to ride on the wild side. BEST DEAL: An entree or 2-course meal, will qualify you for their 99-cent appetizers of the day, i.e. mini-pizza, escargot, tomato seafood soup, grilled beef, eggplant parmesan...Escargot had a hint of grilled flavor, swimming in herb butter. It was great...glad we got 2 orders! Waithelp was very friendly, but too busy at times to clear dishes. No room for dessert, but Bubbies Homemade Ice Cream was around the back of the buidling! Restaurant was packed on a Fri. night with locals, in shorts & casual wear....make reservations.

“Don'be misled by ads”
Reviewed June 6, 2011

A family style restaurant near UH, this restaurant offers a cosmopolitan menu of local and American entrees. However, the ads in local newspapers are misleading, as the quantity of food advertised in photos is less way than amount actually served (lamb roast). Service was unsatisfactory, as our group was constantly interrupted. I will not return.

Reviewed July 18, 2010

The food is very good (self proclaimed Euro Asian Cuisine), but the service needs improvement. This is a small restaurant so you'll probably have to wait for a table. Parking is difficult, but it's worth it if you want to eat in a local restaurant away from the tourists.
