I walked in with my party around 8pm on a Tuesday night, and it was semi-busy. There only seemed to be one waiter doing everything from seating, taking orders, serving the food and bussing tables, which was fine. He did a good job, although his service was definitely rushed.
We ordered our entrees and were given a salad and some bread. The dressing on the salad was watery and the chunks of lettuce were MASSIVE. Trying to cut them on such a small plate = salad all over the table. The bread wasn't anything special.
Now on to the entrees. We ordered lasagna and the linguine with clams and cream sauce. The sauce on the lasagna smelled like sauce in a can of chef boyardee. The pasta with clams was WAY salty and overly buttery.
We decided to brave the dessert menu and try the tiramisu cake and a cannoli. The cake was soggy and you didn't get much of a true tiramisu flavor. The pastry of the cannoli was HARD.
After living in New York for awhile, yes, my expectations for Italian food are quite high, but this was a truly poor reproduction of just basic Italian food.
