It felt like they were understaffed and had more customers than they expected. I also wonder if the waiter for our table as new. We had a 7:30 reservation and were seated about 8:00. On prior visits we enjoyed great service, but this time we were nearly ignored. When we got the waiter's attention he usually took care of us. He brought out two extra dessert plates at the end, but we weren't done until nearly 10:30. Never again on a Friday evening. We'll go back on a Sunday next time.

The ambiance and the company.

Place was crowded and we saw many people using a travelzoo voucher. We were nervous at first but the place was hopping on Saturday night.

The outdoor patio. The setting is beautiful and romantic

The ravioli was very good but it was a little tough.

The quality of food was great and portions were large.

Lively bar area which we will try for happy hour very soon.

I will never order a Travelzoo deal for this restaurant again, and it's doubtful I will eat here again, due to Claudio's attitude.

The service was very poor, very inconsistent. It turns out that we had a FIRST NIGHT waiter, and his oversee'er, the Manager, Claudio, didn't do much to help him out. We were four people, eating off their Travelzoo prix fixe menu. For example, the waiter brought an antipasto, and I had to question "weren't we supposed to get two"? With the pasta course, he brought two, when he should have brought four. When we mentioned to Claudio about the bad service, he basically just brushed us off. Even Claudio opened our bottle of wine, poured my husband a small taste (which he gave a thumbs up), then he poured us other three, and never poured my husband a glassful. Noone ever came and checked in with us to see how things were. Just bad service - and it was a Wednesday nite!
