Their staff is ridiculous! You can tell they dug deep in the depths of Goldsboro for their fine people skills! If their attitudes and demeanors continue at this low level, this place will shut down quick!
I have been to this restaurant several times in the last 18 months and every time I go, I wonder why I went! It seems I have a very poor memory because I am reminded each time that the place is dull, the food is mediocre, and the menu has about 100 things on it which most of it all tastes the same. Often I have thought to myself while there that this place should be featured on Restaurant Impossible. Chef Robert could do wonders with this place!I want to say that I am never the one who suggests we go there; it is always because someone else wants to "give it one more try". I know...it's a lousy excuse but it is the truth. I believe that people go there simply because there is very little selection in Goldsboro and to go out for a nice Italian meal, you'd have to go to Raleigh or maybe (if you are into the chain restaurants) the new Olive Garden that opened a month or so ago. I am a huge fan of going to the locally owned and operated restaurants because I believe in supporting my communtiy, but this place NEEDs an overhaul. Get some waitresses that have a basic knowledge of the menu for one. Last time I was there, the waitress brought my husband's plate to him, turned around, and actually asked my husband if his dish actually looked like itusually does!!! What was that all about???? Look, I'm not really trying to slam this place, but the owner needs to know. If no one tells him there are issues, he can't fix them. The owner is in a perfect place because he is the only game in town for Italian food (with the exception of the chain restaurant I mentioned earlier). With SJAFB right there in town, this place could be amazing! Fingers crossed....
This was an awsome restaurant! The food was true authentic Italian! The atmosphere (or lack there of) is the only reason they didn't get all 5 stars from me. The salad was fresh and beautiful. The marinara sauce obviously home cooked. The pasta was perfect. Even the service was good and served up with a sense of humor and lots of honesty! We'll be back...many times!
