Cooked to order authentic Italian food. Charming little spot with about 10 tables. The Italian chef cooks everything to order. Very reasonable prices.

I've been here three times. Each time there's a new waiter/ess - I'm assuming it's because of how the chef yells at employees, reading from a few of the other reviews. At any rate, our waitress was very nice, and our food was delicious. The portion was on the small side, and the service was soooooo slow. Which wasn't a surprise, because it seems that the service is always slow here - the chef/owner seems like he has his own way of doing things, and appears uninterested in customer service (i.e. serving food in a timely manner, not 50 minutes after the order). I still gave the restaurant a 4 star because of the delicious sauce.

Thank Jazz-June

Seriously, we saw a jar of Ragu sitting on the counter of the kitchen. This place is unbelievably terrible. We ordered a Caesar salad; what came out of the kitchen was a bunch of lettuce coated with Wishbone dressing and topped with shredded (probably pre-shredded) mozzarella (saying it was mozzarella is being kind; the cheese was rubbery, flavorless, and awful). When we sent the salad back, the waitress said that it was a "vegetarian Caesar." We had ordered spaghetti and meatballs, and when they came, we thought the meal might get back on track. No such luck. The dish was horrendous. The meatballs were definitely from a box; the "sauce" had a variety of green peppers and squash in it. The wine they finally brought us was not what we ordered; when asked, the server acted as though it was normal to just serve any wine that might be vaguely similar to the one ordered. We then decided to take a peek into the kitchen to see if we might find the tell-tale bottle of Wishbone, only to instead see a large jar of Ragu on the counter. Do not go to this place---it was one of the worst meals we've ever had.

The server was very nice and helpful; that is where the pleasant experience ended. They didn't have what is on their wine list. The food was nothing special. Dessert servings were small. We made the mistake of asking for separate checks which the waiter was fine with but the chef/owner was not. We asked for receipts and the chef/owner came out and actually hollered at us! He said he didn't 'have time for this' yet the place was not busy by any means. He then threatened to fire the waiter since he agreed to split the check and give us receipts. The man has no concept of good customer service. I hope Brian, the waiter, quit. No one should have to work for such an ogre!

Horrible place. Terrible staff, and no corkage fee. Wine list just a guideline. Stay away from this place.
