This used to be a restaurant I would brag about, but it seems it has gone downhill a bit. Six of us went to Al Vento for dinner last night and not only was the service very slow, the peaches in the prosciutto-wrapped peaches were...More

The food was absolutely delicious. Everything was so fresh. Service was great. We were so glad to read a review of this restaurant in the "guest book" which was in our suite. Wish we lived in the area instead of 715 miles away in Kentucky!...More

Went here for Father's Day. The salad was about $1 per small leaf of lettuce. The entree (chicken piccata) was small and only okay - nothing special. If you don't mind paying for ambience and don't mind paying top dollar for small portions then you...More

A good Italian dinner. The food was well done but fairly standard (e.g., basic tomato sauce, pasta). The decor and the experience did not match the price. The price is towards fine-dining but the food and decor are not at that level.
