Rated 1 out of 5 by Friendly staff and good service, but it went down from there. Soup of the day (pea) had no substance, but salad of the day (mixed greens, goat cheese, etc.) was fine, but from there on it all went downhill. My Osso Bucco was a disaster: instead of being moist and falling off the bone, it was hard and dried out as though it had been overcooked at some time in the distant past and reheated for my meal. It was hardly chewableand I had to leave most of it on my plate. My wife's calf's liver was equally disappointing: full of those tough membranes that makes chewing it an exercise in futility. We had great expectations, but sadly were totally disappointed. First and last visit. JJ Nov 8, 2014
