The Zagat Review
A “hidden treasure” say fans of this upscale-casual delivering some of the “most authentic” Italian cooking; it’s “pricey” , but with solid service and a “lovely garden” , it’s a local “go-to.”

Food wasn’t all that great for the prices charged. Owner was rude. My meal came when the house vegetables that I didn’t desire to eat so I asked for a spinach substitute. I was charged for my $30 meal and an additional $6 for the substitute side. When I asked the waitress about it she seemed bothered and said that’s what her boss told her to do and that she couldn’t change it. I asked her to have him come over and he told me the side that came with my order wasn’t a menu choice so to substitute was an additional charge! Lie because it’s clearly on the menu! He was quite rude in his demeanor when speaking with me. All in all food and customer service were subpar. Wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone.

I wish I could choose -10 stars. Absolutely the worst restaurant experience I've ever had & I'm 63, have lots of restaurant experience, and have eaten at some bad places, but this tops the worst of the worst. Rocco (the owner) was discheveled and he YELLED at us! He was super rude, made no apologies, totally embarrassed us in front of the whole restaurant (we were right in the middle). One of the dishes (chicken parm) we ordered was bad and we had to send that back. Alex, the waiter, didn't even offer a menu so that we could order something different. He was also very speedy and scooped up my last drop of wine before I could stop him. When I asked about my wine, he literally huffed back at me 'All you had to do was tell me to leave the glass!' How terribly humilitating! Please, save yourselves - go anywhere else - even Taco Bell is better & I'd never go back there, either. BTW - look up Rocco's image on google - he's got a mugshot.
