    I didn’t particularly like my mushroom pizza - seemed to lack taste - and I didn’t like the dressing on my arugula salad. My wife however, had the prosciutto pizza and really liked it.

    Food was served without class. It’s thrown on the plate. Service was very mediocre more like the person was serving in a rural roadside diner rather that a fine dining facility. He even for hot that I ordered a drink after having an extensive conversation about availability of types of Whisky.

    The ambience and location were great. However, when my friend and I got our entrées, they were a bit cold and needed some salt/pepper. Usually at a nice restaurant, there would be someone coming around with fresh ground pepper but not here.

    Overall dining experience was alright, serves was very nice! As for the food, the Carbonara pasta was dry and noodles were hard to chew. But the Margherita pizza was good. The highlight of the meal was the dessert - The Tiramusu. Very creamy and indulgent!

    The very low rating was for the 40 minute wait we had for our table. Our reservation was for 6:45 and we didn't get seated til 7:25 -- was expecting our drinks comped, but we didn't get an apology.
