We really enjoyed the food and service on our previous visits to this very lively restaurant. This time, however, many things were not up to par. An incorrect order took so long to replace that the other 5 of us had finished our meals. Requested black pepper never arrived, where it should have been offered in the first place. The veal in the parmegiana was tough. The clams in the linguini al vongele were too salty to eat - the chopped clams in the sauce were okay. Water glasses weren't refilled. As we've really enjoyed our other visits, we were surprised to be so disappointed this time.
