 (San Diego)·Dined on November 4, 2017

A little disappointed with our dinner last night. The food ok nothing spectacular. By the way, if you like a little spice in your food DO NOT order the Spicy Chicken Pasta dish. It’s very spicy. We like spice but we couldn’t eat it. The spaghetti and meatballs were ok but not enough sauce. Our waiter was nice and very helpful but I can’t say the same for the waiter helping the table next to us. Imagine sitting there enjoying your dinner with your spouse and two kids then all of a sudden you can’t hear the conversation at your table but it’s drowned out by a group of 3 loud talking cussing idiots sitting next to you. A few minutes later there was a issue with the food and waiter says, “did you touch any of the food?” No, we didn’t touch it because we didn’t order it, is the response. The waiter walks away and comes back with more bread and says, “hey, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to be a Dic%.” Ok, stop. It’s bad enough these adults with no manners are ruining everyone else’s dinner but to have a waiter use vulgar language like that when there are other people sitting right next them and can hear the whole thing! We aren’t at a bar! We are at a family restaurant having dinner with our kids!

I’m giving a bad score not because of the cursing customers but because the waiters should not perpetuate bad behavior by customers.

Great place for a large group. Only one problem... it was very busy and the chef forgot about our pizza. When it arrived at our table it was very burnt, the sauce and pepperonis didn't fill out to the end.

I don't know why they have some strange photos of naked individuals, since this is a family restaurant. All of our young children were distracted by two or three weird photos next to our table. The service was very slow bringing the check to the table, we probably waited 20 minutes just to get the check. The food came quick, and the waiter was great, however.

The spaghetti lacked flavor. The lemon chicken was very good.. Even though there were not that many people,waiter took long. He should of had bus boy to help pick up and refill the glasses. I wish the waiter would have recommended a pitcher of drinks.

Birthday with large age range drew us to make reservations here
Waitress was one of worst I have experienced.
One dinner came out 30 minutes before rest of food.
Seemed dirty. Holiday weekend, ballgame down the street & they seemed totally unprepared Staff wise. They seemed oblivious to how poorly they were doing, so one has to assume a very neophyte staff & management.
Won't return

Our poor server was on her second day of work...it was Valentine's Day...we were there for 2 hours and it wasn't any busier than any other visit. I feel bad for the waitress, the manager came around to EVERY table in our area (there were only 6) and never stopped at ours. We were so exhausted by the end of our meal; it was ridiculous.

It's just too pricey for Italian food. The drinks and dessert are overpriced. $10 each for a glass of Chianti and for the cannoli dessert.
