    Dinner was great but it was way too hot in the restaurant. The people behind me were also complaining about it. The waitress said it was because we were near the kitchen but we’ve been there before and it has never felt that hot. The food took quite a while too.

    I tried the chicken parm for the first time. It was served less than hot. Didn’t appear to be fresh or just made. I know reheating is a big thing in the industry but considering you only serve chicken parm on Sunday evenings, I think it should be super fresh. The salad I had was amazing! The pear/walnut salad- so fresh and appetizing! I could eat it every day!

    Only negative to say about this place was that at the end after I paid , my waiter very unprofessional threw my card on the table instead of handling back to me. That was very rude and this was after I added for him $20 tip on my check. Should have asked for that money back!!

    Food was fantastic as always but the waitress was in a such bad humor, she should have stayed at home, looks like she didn’t want to be there, rushing us all the time. We didn’t go to Mc Donald’s to have our food and drinks tossed on the table but I still left her 20% gratuity when she deserved zero.

    Each time we’ve been here I haven’t really been impressed. The atmosphere is cool, the drinks are normally pretty good but the service and food was just OK in my opinion. Based on the items we’ve tried here, the appetizers have been the best things on the menu. The garlic bread appetizer is very tasty while the pasta dishes and pizza I’ve tried have been a bit on the bland side. As far as the service goes, there’s definitely room for improvement. The waitress we had yesterday disappeared on us at least 4 or 5 times and when we did ask her for something it felt like we were bothering her.

    Was really excited to visit this restaurant. Atmosphere and actual place was really nice and beautiful. However the food was extremely salty. Had to send several of our plates back. Bread was not fresh. Our waiter was great and very helpful. Not his fault but did not enjoy any of our meals. Not even dessert.

    We have been there many times, but today was an off day. The server was very robotic and not super friendly. The entrees were not hot and our meat pasta dish was undercooked, actually raw pork and meatballs inside of our favorite Pedezco mixed pasta dish.
