Food was really good but portions sizes were not generous. There were ten medium size tortellini with our "large" order. The octopus dinner special was more of a generous appetizer side. Dinner salads are a good value! Food tasted very good. Service was just okay. It was really busy so waitress wasn't too attentive. It was very noisy. I've never been there when there was live music and we were shouting at each other even though we were sitting in the rear of the restaurant.

Not sure what was going on last night - restaurant was out of all of the basics (lasagna, penne, tiramisu, etc) - there were almost no customers - really weird service (we had a reservation for four but were led to a table for two, etc) - someone came out to show us dead raw seafood on a slimy plate that would be on a “future menu” while we were having dessert (totally gross).... I used to enjoy this place...
