Dear August1956 i m sorry, but I would like to expressing my solidarity with the staff and the chef of this restaurant, I do not know, but I will know soon. I would like to say to this gentleman, client of dubious knowledge of Italian cuisine, the Kechup not used, that if you want to use can go and eat and drink at McDonald's. I had been on the owner of the restaurant, I would not be very polite and benevolent placed in it. I would kindly accompanied to the door and indicated the way of fast food. We must begin to stop serving, cappuccino with Pizza or other mash disgusting that accompany dishes of Italian cuisine, or to allow a customer to usurp a plate of pasta in that way. I ask all Italian restaurateurs in the world to defend the Excellencies of our kitchen, to make it like our home. not adapt to local tastes. If anyone comes to Italian restaurant must have the true Italian cooking, done well.

No, reservations are not required, but it's only a phone call to book. If you ask for Carmine, he speaks perfect English, he will sort you out.
