Rated 5 out of 5 by This was an excellent place to eat! Of course the only problem was parking Downtown. It's always a bother. Our waiter was attentive and the food was superb!!! They even had spumoni on the dessert menu, which made our friend super happy. We will probably be back to eat here sooner than later. Jan 18, 2014

Rated 3 out of 5 by Our food took an hour and a half to arrive. The menu is very complicated and mostly in Italian and doesn't clarify that they adhere to the more strict "Italy" definitions of primi and segundi courses. There was no way to know we were ordering in Euro standards. On top of that, the waiter didn't bother to tell us that the meals we ordered were going to be so incredibly small. My boyfriend is a 6 and half foot tall football player so you'd think the waiter would warn him he'd ordered a small side salad with bacon on it rather than a full meal. So an hour and a half later, we were starving. We ate what we got, but it was not as good as I remember it. My ravioli was ridiculously salty. His silly little salad was bland. Waiter brought us a single small tira misu as some sort of consolation. Same thing happened to the two couples seated near us. SUPER LAME. All it would have taken to fix this is one more entree and another glass of wine. Tab was $50. LAME LAME LAME. Too bad, I used to love this restaurant. Nov 11, 2013
