We asked for some help with the extensive wine list, hoping to learn more about their Sicilian wines (which they said were the perfect compliment to their cuisine). Initially, the waiter tried to direct us in a different direction than we asked about. Then, when we gave a price range, he suggested a wine that was about 25% higher than our limit. When we said no to that, he offered a taste of something very inexpensive, which was blah. When that was rejected, he disappeared for quite a while, only for a different waiter to eventually come to help with wine and take our order. In the end, this did not ruin our evening, but certainly the service did not help.

Then the table next to us who was seated and ordered after us, got their food first (and ordered similar dishes). The food tastes good but I probably won’t return to this location bc of this experience

The server was very prompt ( may be a bit too prompt as we felt we didn’t have enough time to choose). The food was good but cannot claim excellence compared to some other Italian restaurants in town. The dishes we ordered were a bit bland and not that flavorful. May be it was what we ordered. Server forgot to put in the order for both of us at the same time so I ate while my wife watched me. He did feel bad and apologized many times and gave us free dessert- so have to give him credit for that. Overall I would recommend trying this place. I would probably go back and try other dishes.

I don't know the name but it would be great if they take care of the image of the restaurant

The meal was definitely a bit rushed as we had 6PM reservations and I could tell they needed the table for the 7pm-8pm rush: the main course arrived before we finished the apps. Don't sit near the kitchen it's too hot. I asked to move and they graciously moved us right away; it was early (6PM) so tables were free. Grilled sardines were authentic & delicious. Lasagna was "good". Wines were excellent, and varied in price.
