Attention Jewish customers from upper east side, west side and midtown. be very careful the owner originally from southern Italy by the name of Tony, (also the owner of Amarone Restaurant) is a anti semitic, racist, anti jew, with a bigotry behavior toward Jews! This man is a fake, incompetent, illiterate and doesn't even speak proper English with a heavy Italian southern accent. Tony the owner of Azalea restaurant is a pathetic Albanian lover, he hates his own people from Italy. Please did you realize that there aren't Italian employees? no Italian waiter, no Italian busboy, no Italian manager and NO Italian Chief? And there worst of all that the employees working at the restaurants are illegal alien with criminal record from Romania, Albania, Mexico and Equador! the kitchen staff is not even Iitalian and the food is prepared and cooked by illegal alien from mexico and the chef by the name of Alex is not even Italian but an immigrant from Mexico! ATTENTION: The labor department is investigating the owners of both restaurants, Azalea restaurant and Amarone for violating Federal and state Law by illegally confiscating all the wanters tips and refusing to pay all his employees! It is also investigated for violating labor law by underpaying his employees and not even meeting the minimum wage required by law. the food portions are extremely small, overpriced and it takes for ever to come out from the kitchen! do yourself a favor save your money and go eat somewhere else! The food sucks, very poor taste, old frozen fish, small portions and overpriced!!
