    We were having a special occasion and happy to be eating here as we have been here several times before. Tonight 3 out of our 4 entrees were terrible. Fish was dry, thin and overcooked. Two of us has the cappellini pasta with shrimp. The pasta was way overcooked (think mush in mouth), it was dry and the worst was the shrimp that was slightly undercooked, not seasoned at all and tasted like pre peeled boiled shrimp from Publix. It was sadly awful. We hope it was a bad night bc we generally enjoy it. The meatball and charcuterie and bread appetizers were the best part of the night. Oh and our server w dark hair and glasses was rude (we usually have great service). Not sure if we will ever come back or recommend again.

    Our bartender, Julia, made our experience an outstanding event. She was a delight to speak with. Warm and engaging. Dinner, as always, was exceptional. We’re looking forward to our next visit!
