Overall

It's nice that this restaurant sends the customers that are waiting to a cute little bar down the block to get 20% off drinks during the wait time but still not worth it.



The salad was ok, nothing to leave me wanting more. We ordered 4 different pasta dishes and they were all warm. My tortellini was not al dente, it was very firm and too chewy. My friend and I both ordered the tortellini and both dishes needed longer cooking times... so it wasn't just me.The middle of the dish was warm and the outer noodles were cold. For a place that serves fresh pasta that's 80% of the menu, you would think that the pasta would be the magnificent part of the meal. The primavera was just olive oil with charred veggies. I could have made better pasta at home.

I would not recommend eating here. Find another italian restaurant to try.



The restaurant is very small. Do not come here with more than 4 people. It's a little room that can maybe accommodate 25 people.
