After reading so many great things about this restaurant, we were excited to try it last night. Didn't have reservations, so sat at the kitchen bar. I don't know if it was a case of having too high expectations, or that we just ordered the wrong things, but we were very disappointed. \r
Started with a pizza with mushrooms. It was OK, but the crust was toooo thin and it was rather greasy. There was nothing special about it, especially for $18. We shared a few other appetizers: fried mozarella, which was very good; artichokes, which were burnt; polenta that had a gluey consistency; and a pasta and crab salad that was OK, but it contained shells. I told the waiter about it, and he apologized, but did nothing. Didn't take it off the bill or offer us a drink or desert.\r
It is getting a lot of buzz, but I am not impressed. For the price, it is definitley not a place I would frequent.
