It was my Wife's Birthday & it is our Favorite Italian Restuarant in Charlotte !!
Great Salads, Entrees & Desserts! Wine Selection is always one of the Best!
We had a Great Evening!
Our favorite "treat ourselves" restaurant. I would say favorite anytime restaurant; however, we cannot resist having the specials and going all out here. The food and service is outstanding. I think the osso buco or the veal chop are the best things I have ever eaten. I had the surf and turf last time...just for varieties sake. The filet was wrapped in prosciutto it was fabulous. The scallop appetizer is delicious. For old time Charlotteans, this is in the old Rhineland House. It is still the same. A little noisey, ok for families, casual dress with upscale food. Yes, we love it.
Very good but not great. They present well but two of our groups entrees were subpar.
I reserved a table for 10pm on Valentine's Day. The night before they changed the reservation to 8:45 without any communication from the restaurant other then the email. Not the biggest deal but we had to rush to make it. We arrived 2 mins early and still had to wait 15 mins for our table. (I know Valentine's Day is crazy but changing our res to a time where we still had to wait for a table and should be managed better) Service times were good for it being so busy. The bread with pesto oil dip was amazing to start followed by equally amazing appedtizers (Scallops & Burratta.) The main course was very disappointing... I ordered Lobster Ravioli which was very overcooked and mushy and there was wayyyy to much sauce which added to it being mushy. I ate it all, the flavors were good. My wife's was way worse... The pork chop was the most dry piece of meat she ever had. ( I tasted and fully agreed) She enjoyed the Barolo wine sauce and asparagus. She didn't eat 10% of it and we let the waiter know. They didn't offer to replace it. (The couple sitting next to us had similar issues.) The desert was very good but I was expecting that they would at least give us a free one for the inedible food... nope, we paid full price for everything. We plan on returning on a less crazy day and I'll update this after.
Great Italian food from scratch as always. Highly recommend.
Great food. Slow service!
Wonderful food. It's a bit loud, but that can't be helped. My only disappointment was that it took a long time for the waiter to ask for our drink order.
Our meal was delicious but the restaurant was clearly over booked. Our reservation was for 7:30 and it was 30 minutes before we were seated and another 15 minutes before the waiter acknowledged us. This turned into a three hour meal and we each only ordered entrees. We will go back but not on a weekend when it is so crowded and reservations seem to be a suggestion.
Fabulous A lovely restaurant for a big city experience in a strip center. A must in Charlotte!!
Great food. Nice staff. Definitely will come back.
