    Out of calamari. Must be kidding. Don’t order specials that are not priced. 6 spinach raviolis for a shocking $28 rip off. .

    Wonderful Dinner! Our server was so outstanding, and made the experience so special. Her name was Angeray. (I'm sure I'm not spelling this correctly) She was amazing. So accommodating and professional!! The food there is always great. The only complaint I would have is the noise level, but I would still give a 5 star review.

    The food was excellent! Service slow but I think it was because they just did not have enough staff. We were seated and did not see a waiter for 15 minutes. Also we had outdoor seating. The restaurant inside was really nice. Our table was in a sidewalk of the shopping plaza looking into stores. Hope this explains our starred review

    The server was good. Not very attentive to drinks. Didn't order wine service since I had a long drive back home. We waited about 45 minutes between our appetizer and main course in which the server made it seem like he thought we were still eating our appetizer. Food was delicious.

    Food had no taste accept salt. My gnocchi was swimming is liquid that did not taste of anything except salt. The Server did the right thing and worked with us. I felt very bad for her. The manager just pretended nothing ever happen and wouldn't even come over to the table and speak with us when the Server asked him to help..

    Price fixe menu was good. Other items looked good. Had some Chianti by the glass. Two glasses each. Probably should have ordered a bottle. Problem is the neither of us got the slightest buzz, which tells me that it was diluted. That’s a rip off at $12/glass. They finished with a complimentary champagne toast for my wife’s birthday. Nice touch.
