    We felt rushed through the meal and the restaurant was not busy. Several times the busboy wait staff asked us if they could take our plates. ANd it was Very noisy. Staff dumping dirty dishes in a bin/ very loud. And staff moving whole tables into new spots. Also staff standing around talking and clowning around with each other - distracting. The food was excellent as alway.

    Our server (Juan) made our night very special. It is always a pleasure to have a seasoned veteran in the restaurant business who understands how to go above and beyond the average dining experience. It is the little things that a server can do that make a restaurant quite memorable. Thank you, Juan.

    The bartender didn’t know how to make an espresso martini. We sent the first one back because it was a chocolate martini. The server brought back the exact same thing and was annoyed when we said we didn’t want it. The food recommendations the server made were not great. The bus boy tried bussing our table three times while we were still eating. We felt very rushed. Instead of ordering entrees, we asked for the check and left. No thanks.

    I usually order pasta when I'm at an Italian restaurant, however when I saw there was a meatball sandwich on the menu - I decided to try it. And it was delicious! It was a very generous french bread type sandwich with 3 huge meatballs and covered with the most delicious cheese. Great service as well!
