I have heard rave reviews about this restaurant so I went with my husband and some friends to check it out last week. I have to say it was basic average Italian food. We had a decent bottle of wine, the bread was fresh and we and they gave what looked like a tomato flan accompany the bread. For appetizers we had salads and shared the Calamari. I had spaghetti with tomatoes and fresh thyme, my husband had the Pappardelle. Our friends had a seafood special and Gnocchi. Again, nothing to rave about but was decent. For dessert my husband and I shared their ""famous"" cheesecake which was very good and did taste homemade. The one big turn off was that the waiters rushed us throughout our entire meal. We barely put our fork down and they took our plates. We didn't even finish our coffee and they took our cups away. The waiter said they had people waiting and needed our table. It was a week night and the place was full but was shocked at how they pushed you out the door. Again, the food wasn't horrible but wasn't good enough that I would run back or recommend. They don't stand out among some of the other restaurants in the city.
