    The portions were way too large. Most people there were on vacation and had limited uses for take-home boxes. The prices were on the high side, but probably could be lowered if the portions were more reasonably sized.

    The food was alright but over priced. I’m would not recommend this restaurant. The a la cart vegetable sides are large enough to feed more than one person.

    Found a hair wrapped around a piece of broccoli in my Pasta Mafia. I imagine it would have been taken care of if I had said something but I didn’t want to ruin the others meals at my table so kept it to myself. Our waitress was fantastic though!
