Had veal saltimbocca. The worst food I’ve ever eaten. I think they were veal patties on top of each other. Tasted like rubber bands. My husbands food was equally bad. Shame on you, calling this Italian food. On a good note. Wait staff was great.

I’m sure they can, with advanced planning. Ask to reserve the back room for the event. Ask for Eric or the manager, Liat. Terrific people.
