Service was very slow. Everything from waiting for our drinks to a long wait for our food. They are usually better but they had a rough evening. I also heard another patron complaining about slow service.

I'm not writing about the food as it was good. BUT what I am writing about is what the WAITER tried to do!!! When the bill came my friend put down a $100 American Express gift card and I put down my VISA card. The bill came and was approximately $150.00. He went in the back and processed the American Express card for$150 PLUS a $24.00 tip. When the gift card was declined (since it was only a $100 value) he then charged MY card for the full amount PLUS the gratuity that I did not authorize. When he brought the bill to me, I refused to sign for it and my friend then gave a credit card and I gave him mine and told him to split the bill in half. I then asked for a copy of the REVERSAL of the original charge, which he did bring. If the Amex gift card had not been declined, he would have told us it was and charged me the full tab. NEVER ever EVER go there!!!!!!!

Booked a 7:00pm reservation but didn’t get seated until 8:10pm. Bartender was great and bought our first round of drinks for the trouble. Food was great as always.

Great dinner, sat outside and very pleasant staff. Started by sharing a salad, we each had the Eggplant Parmigiana which was excellent and topped it off with a Pistachio Tartufo. Small and comfortable Restaurant near the Wellington Mall, plenty of parking. Go and Enjoy!

Service very slow, and food not good. Some pieces not even warm. Waitress never checked by the table to see how we were doing. Have eaten there many times before and it was good. This time, and I took friends because I told them how good it was, I was really disappointed.

I ordered sole franchese which arrived completely dry with no sauce. The waiter told me that this is how it comes, but did offer sauce. Since he was a little snarky I asked to speak to the owner, who took a long time to get to the table. He did offer a new plate, but my companions were almost finished with their dinners, so that wasn’t a good plan. The owner said that everyone makes mistakes some times (true) but did not apologize, nor explain the waiter having told me that this is how it comes. We have eaten here several times before this and the food and service have been good. After tonight’s experience though I’m not sure we will be back. Everyone else’s food was good though.

I loved the comfortable yet elegant outdoor dining area. The Risotto Pescatore was fantastic! Creamy risotto gently combined with lucious shrimp, clams, mussels and calamari. It arrived nice and hot, a very important thing in my book! There were many dishes I want to try on future visits! So much so, we are going again tomorrow!
