horrible experience!! – My husband and I were surprised when we looked at the menu. Prices were high, portions were VERY small, the food tasted as though it was from the frozen section at the grocery store. We left still hungry. Waitress was not at all friendly. We left feeling cheated.
a terrible experience – Ate there last night with my family. 3 out of 5 of us HATED our food: caesar salad - horrible dressing - tasted like olive oil with Parmesan dumped in it. Sausage dish - pasta soggy, sausage dry and hard, greasy. Chicken Picata - oily and just not good, again pasted soggy. Steak with vegetables - greasy greasy greasy. The steak was at least one third fat and gristle. At no point did the waiter stop by to see how the food was, and no, the restaurant was not busy. When the waiter finally came to see if we wanted dessert he was shown the disgusting remains of the steak - he was very casual about it. We then asked for a discount on that dish and he looked at us like we were crazy. Needless to say we did not get it.
When pointed out to the manager (all the steak junk was piled up separately) she said "oh that's the way it comes". When it was politely said that they could buy a better cut of meat she just walked away.
Nice local Italian place. A little high price. Food is tasty and fresh. Service is good and staff friendly.
Parking is the only drawback and it is terrible to find a parking spot anytime either during the week or on the weekend.
Neighborhood Italian Atmosphere – Our neighborhood favorite for Italian cuisine. Come in the back door. It's friendlier that way and there's parking out back.
