I spent the evening here because of the reviews on this website, and I know why the reviews were so raving mad. The food is authentic, which means that there is an older Italian woman in the kitchen who is preparing the food. When the waiter asked me if I liked the food, I said, no, I do not like the food; I love the food. He entered the kitchen and this older Italian woman came out. I do not read or write (and therefore do no understand much Italian), so I had asked the waiter to order for me. He ordered the Antipasti; the Paccheri all Matricaiana de Mare; the Gnochetti Gamberi e Speck Croccante; and finally the Tiramisu espresso a la pistacchio... in a word, I ate a lot of healthy food, which is why I did not feel stuffed after eating, but satisfied.
