We needed to ask the staff to turn down the sound level of the background music. Since the restaurant was fairly empty--we had a 5:15 pm reservation--the overall noise level was acceptable. However, if the restaurant was full, the sound level could have been uncomfortable. My husband's dinner came with grilled zucchini which was cold. The manager explained that they grill the veggies in the morning and don't reheat them. They did bring my husband warmed zucchini.

The worst thing of this place is its waitress Kida. She was very rude and unpolite, her treatment was horrible. In addition, we had to ask her several times for the orders and she made some mistakes in the final payment.

As you know we keep coming back because it tastes superb and consistently wonderful. This has been our very first experience with the food was mediocre. Not even fair not even good not very good nor excellent but mediocre. It’s doubtful that will ever return again. Lasagna tasted like diner food and my veal Fontana your signature dish was thick, tough, the mushrooms were all shriveled up, the prosciutto tasted like dishwasher water . Basically dinner was almost awful. I hope you take this to heart and do something about this immediately.

The menu was a safe bet for a group with different tastes including children. Note it is a BYOB. Desserts are made in house and it shows - all were excellent.

Our server was not good at all. She was at our table just to take the order, dropped off food and handed us the check. There was no time that she came to check on us to ask if we were okay. Not once. And on top, we ordered an additional plate through the bus boy because she didn’t come back to the table once… then when we asked her about the said item, she said that “we should order from her and her only.” How could we if she never came back to check on our group… We were a party of 8 and anything over 6 was an auto gratuity but to be honest, she didn’t deserve the 18-20% that was charged. At least have the decency to check on our party once during the service to see if everything is okay with their dinner.

When the restaurant got more people and it was so loud we left as soon as we could. Too bad the chef is really outstanding in the quality of the food is very very good

I only gave it 4 starts because there was no alcohol which I didn't read before I came so we couldn't have a glass of wine with dinner. My fault, I guess, but it would be great to have add.
