We had a reservation for 5:15 for a party of 3. Once we were seated, a large party of about 12 was seated next to us - which was not a problem at all. We were disappointed with our server- he was too busy attending to the large party- we were not offered Parmesan cheese once our food arrived (which I realized they do offer it when it was offered to the large party), we were never asked if we’d like to order dessert until after the large party had left, and I had to ask for a tea refill instead of the server checking if we needed refills.
I must add, the hostess was very attentive upon our arrival. Unfortunately, I don’t know if I would want to try dining here again due to the service we experienced.

I was very upset because I took my boyfriend there for dinner on his birthday. Dinner was okay but at the end when we asked for the check our waiter told us not to worry about it that it was taken care of. He told us someone had called and said he was my boyfriends dad and paid for our meal. My boyfriend was happy that his dad had treated him and as we were getting ready to leave the manager came up to us and told us there was a mistake. He said sorry and told us we would have to pay for our meal in full. I paid for the dinner however I was upset that it was the restaurant mistake and they didn’t even offer to discount the bill after the inconvenience and leading my boyfriend to believe that someone had treated him on his birthday and then taking it back. I feel that the costumer service could have been better after they had made the mistake. I would have expressed my concerns however didn’t want to upset my boyfriend on his birthday even more. Even something small like giving us a free appetizer for the next time we visit would’ve been nice. I won’t ever take someone there for their birthday and will no longer be back.

My veal piccata and caprese salad were both outstanding! Wine was great and reasonably priced. The staff was exceptionally friendly and went out of their way to help us celebrate my son’s 18th Birthday.

We stopped by because we had visited the location in Vegas, and were sorely disappointed by service and menu items. We went for happy hour and the most famous items were no longer served but were still on the menu. It was empty and it looks like it will be closing due to bad service and lack of variety, just like the location in San Antonio. The only redeeming quality of our food was dessert.

The restaurant was empty yet they insisted on sitting on a reduced size table for 2. Once the main entree came there was no space and yet they did not take empty plates off. The whole time we were there they only refilled our drink once until when we were about to get the check. Overall great food just needs better service. Out of all the times we’ve been here by far the worst experience.

Overall a solid experience. 3 of the four of us really enjoyed our meal, but one thought the spaghetti and meatballs was way too salty. My eggplant parm was amazing, and daughter loved her linguine with clams. There were some interesting. Appetizers including lasagna nachos. The only other negatives were s very limited list of wines by the glass, but the bottled selections were reasonably priced including a nice Texas wine.

Arrived and was greeted by the chef and manager. Our meal started off with bread that could be dipped in oil and vinegar. Very good. They made us a special appetizer with chopped tomato with basil. Very tasty and beautiful on the plate. We had spaghetti and it came in just the right size. We all liked it. The chef made us a special dessert tray that highlighted several types in small bites. Made me feel very special. Thank you so much for a delightful meal. We will return.
