    Great food, but the service sucks.

    We were one of the first people to be seated after the restaurant opened, and ended up waiting over an hour for our food. People were seated around us and left before we even got our lunch. When they finally brought it out, they brought out one person's at a time with several minutes between each plate. Awkward! We're staring at the one person eating while we get more and more upset. We end up sharing the pizzas that are brought out, and when we are finally ready to leave, they bring out our two sandwiches, which I actually told them to forget about because of the delay. They comped the sandwiches, but should have comped the entire meal.

    Our waiter was M.I.A. for 20 minutes or more, and the manager tried to apologize, but at this point it fell on deaf ears.

    The food is amazing, it is just a shame that their host staff is rude, their waiters are inexperienced and their management can't organize the kitchen and deal with issues in an effective manner.
