My spouse and I went to this restaurant once and really liked it so we decided to return. Big mistake. The waiter/bartender spoke little or no English. When he brought my entree it was totally different than what I ordered and when I brought this to his attention (which was limited to say the least)he told me that they ran out of what I ordered (Orecchiette?? Really?? Ran OUT?? It's on the menu! Stock up!) so he brought me a different dish and thought I wouldn't notice, I guess. Being allergic to chicken, I'm glad I noticed before I ate any of it. They were not even remotely apologetic about it. Never again.

I'm going to be a total food snob today. The food was below my expectations from this restaurant. They are usually 4.5 stars out of 5. The first time I had this dish the chicken was cooked to perfection so it was juicy and tender. The tomato sauce was bursting with flavor and there were chunks of fresh tomatoes scattered about. So overall it was a delight for my mouth. Today, however, my chicken parmigiana was a 2.5 out of 5 stars. The chicken was overcooked and too chewy. The tomato sauce for the accompanying fettuccine tasted overly sour- almost as if it had gone bad? It also had no flavor at all. Like something straight from a jar. I was horrified I had paid good money for this. They even ran out of my long awaited homemade tiramisu, which they promised they had today! GRRR This place better get their act together fast because for their prices it had better be worth it!!!

Very average. Prices are not bad but food is just ok and service is near awful. Gotten worse over the years and I've been going there for 10+ years.

i am absolutely shocked by all the great reviews on here. food was mediocre at best, so will not be critiqued. the service, however, was ABSOLUTELY dreadful. not only did one of the waitresses literally not speak any english who had to constantly call the other one to answer our questions, but the waitress who did speak english seemed like she did not want to work at all. our party must have asked for water at least 4 or 5 times only never to get it. it was like pulling teeth to ask for plates for our appetizers. they have NO bottles of wine, as our waitress informed us (only carafes of dilute and poor tasting wine). but then when we indicated how poor the carafe was and saw that there WERE bottles of wine behind the bar, she then decided to get a chair to get a bottle, which was better but not great. after all this poor service, they thought they could put 20% tip on our bill of our party of only 6 people, which was stated nowhere on the menu. not to mention they gave us an issue and rolled their eyes when we said that the restaurant was cold and to raise the heat. Disappointing experience and will never go back, that's for sure!
