DH had their ""Mixed Seafood"" entree, consisting of shrimp, scallops, clams and mussels in a zesty marinara sauce over fettucine. My choice of the evening was one of their specialties, the ""Veal Piccata"" over bowtie pasta tossed in garlicky butter sauce with capers and red onions.
The basket of sourdough bread was warm, fresh and perfectly crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The house salad that comes with the meal left a LOT to be desired. Romaine lettuce, a pinch of shredded carrots, a couple of sliced cucumbers, topped with raw sliced red onions (which I quickly removed!) all tossed in the worst vinaigrette dressing I've ever had. Yuck. I didn't even finish it. Too bad they only offer either this salad (no choice of any other dressing but that one) or minestrone, which I've never cared for.
A couple of areas they could use improvement would be the service and the veal piccata presentation (it looked like it was served by a newbie home cook.) We also felt our server was rushing us from the time we sat down to the time we left and she didn't smile once. The food was delivered quickly, though.

This restaurant knows how to make great pasta dishes. Always fresh, hot and perfect! We also like the hot French bread and dipping oil, and the minnestrone soup. Good place for couples, or small parties of 6 or less. We've been regular customers since they started this cafe at this location. We highly recommend this place to our friends too! Keep up the great work!
