I had been here a couple of times about a year back, and enjoyed myself, so we came back on 10/10/09 to have dinner with friends. We had four people, and we ordered a lot of dishes. The cooking quality was -- at best -- mediocre. Figs with prosciutto that had been cooked completely into submission -- the figs were oozing out, and the prosciutto was paper-dry. Tasteless, gooey egglant parmegiana. Tough, dry lamb osso buco. Tasteless calamari. All four of us were salting the food, to try to pry some taste out.\r
It was Saturday night and 2/3 of the tables were empty. We quickly discovered why. By the way -- our bill with tip was $190 for four, so dinner was not only medicore, it was also fairly expensive. There are vastly better alternatives -- Arrivederci comes to mind. You have been warned.
