    This restaurant Used to be so Good! Not sure what has caused the decline in service and food. All the usual excuses were used; lack of trained staff, shortage of foods listed on the menu, etc...... But there is no excuse for untrained staff staying untrained and without mentors. No excuse for poor preparation of food that Is on the menu. I detest being stressed during a meal that is supposed to be delicious, relaxing and fun. My hope is that management brings this venue back up to the excellent standards prior to our meal.

    I don’t know what to think about an Italian restaurant that is out of basil and spinach so you can’t order drinks that have basil or any food with spinach.

    Ribeye was nothing as we previously order. Thus the low review. Extremely tough, not cooked medium well. Looked like a totally different steak {2} than we always love. Left almost the entire steaks. Waitress said new cooks… expensive learning experience at our cost. Sorry, bad review for the first time.

    My wife’s ravioli was ok but lukewarm. My medallions and mashed potatoes were over cooked. Felt like they sat under the hot plate an extra 15-25 minutes. First time that we have had a mediocre visit here after 10 times or so. Everyone has an off day.

    Food was very good. We had a spinach appetizer that was quite tasty. My husband enjoyed the lobster & shrimp fettuccine while I had the chicken Milanese also tasty tho would have liked a little more marinara with the dish. Disappointed in our server, did not come by once while we had dinner to check how things were and kind of brushed us off until the bill was due.

    Hostess was not friendly. Only looked at her tablet not at the guest. Had a resversation, but she said all resvervations were taken. I had to tell her our confirmation number, and still had to wait. She took others before us. Not happy, it was our 49th anniversary. The food was very good and the young man that took care of us was very nice.

    So disappointing. This used to be our favorite place eat. Prices have skyrocketed with such ridiculously smaller portions. They have removed favorite menu items. They haven’t had flatbread available, although it’s on menu, for all year stating there oven needs cleaning each time. Sadly we won’t go back. It’s a shame.

    Reception by hostess was prompt as was seating (we had reservation}. Server was prompt and attentive. Enjoyed all the dishes we had selected, especially appetizer of eggplant and shrimp. Steak was done as requested. Only complaint was that the bread had a very hard crust difficult to bite or chew. Overall, we had a lovely experience in a relaxing atmosphere and will look forward to having a meal here again.
