Ordered food for pick up. They forgot half of the order and restaurant was almost empty. I live close by and everytime I go back it worse than before. I am done. Never again. The quality of the pasta was poor also.

Food was good. However, because the restaurant closes at 2, we were not able to order a dessert. The manager did allow us to sit and visit on the patio for another few minutes.

Greeted with enthusiasm, served with cheer and delighted with sumptuous food. Wild Arugula and Butternut Squash salad was divine. Server was always on the spot but not intrusive.

A family visit to a restaurant on Friday night resulted in a a complete disappointment. everything we ordered ranged from below average to poor quality: tomato soup tasted like canned one, pasta and fish were drowning in oil (not sure it was olive) and ravioli...More
