this place was very pretty and the food was SO delicious. I hope you can hang on during this difficult time
Drinks few a bit weak for the price of them. But the food was good.
It was nice and relaxing after a long work week with a friend!!
Cooking technique is just not up to restaurant standard. Simple example, onions in pasta were crunchy because they were not sautéed/caramelized enough. Fries came out super oily. But service was good, and outdoor seating was pleasant
We had a great time chatting for a few hours and the food was great.
First, the menu was very limited and for a Cucina, there was 4 or 5 pasta dishes listed, and really none of the popular types you would normally see in an upscale Italian restarant. The service was mariginal, and was OK when I could get ahold of the waitress who was not that busy! I had the Ciopino, and it was served lke warm at best with hardly any good pieces of seafood, not one piece of lobster, but a couple of shrimps. Not worth the money I paid for it for sure and I have been to many excellent Italian restaurants and know good Italian food. It was indeed not the case here, and was extremely disappointed ! Did not see any quality in the food or service!
