    Veal Marsala was pasty because it was heavily floured. Not good!

    Possibly the longest I’ve ever waited for food. Over 90 minutes and that’s only because the server was trying her best to push them along. Another table near us waited even longer and finally just paid for their drinks and left!!! At 10pm I told her to just box it up so we could eat at our hotel. Our server said every table she had that night complained so I have to assume this is standard practice. Food was ok, the sweet server was lovely and tried her best. What a mess.

    We were so looking forward to a lovely evening. 7:30 seated and my daughter and I didn’t get our meal until 9:00!!!! Thankful for the server who desperately tried to follow up. Major efficiencies in the kitchen- I think only 1 Chef. Manager was completely overwhelmed and didn’t really know how the handle anything. My chicken Marsala came out cold. Daughters Baied Ziti was good. Sadly disappointed!!

    Food quality was excellent. Each of the six in our group had something different from grouper and veal to manicotti. I thought the required gratuity at 21.5 % was a bit high so additional tip was minimal. I get mandatory service fee but staff would be more motivated if required was 18% to allow customer to show appreciation by adding 5-7%.

    Delicious entrees and incredible portion sizes. They need more waiters, bartenders, and bussers. Also they got the butter in tin foil cubes like you’re at a Carrabba’s 🤨 It’s cutesy and tucked away from downtown. Lovely little date night if you’ve got a little extra cash to spend on your spouse, but nothing to write home about. Save the money, buy a bottle of wine and cook spaghetti together instead.

    Sadly the overall experience was not as expected. We had calamari for an app and it was undercooked. The Cesar salad was flavorless. Then to the main course…. Veal sorentino with pasta. The sauce was good and the pasta was cooked right. Good size portion (would not go home hungry). Unfortunately the batter for both the veal and eggplant tasted like plain flour, which detracted from the overall taste of the dish. We were never offered refills on our wine and after the meal there was no dessert offering. High hopes at the beginning of the evening with lackluster results.
