Not the greatest food but a very pretty garden setting, inside, and excellent service. The best part of our meal was the sgroppini--delicious!

We were so surprised to find the beautiful outdoor seating, inside, but there it is! We both ate veal with lemon sauce and found it a bit pasty, but with nice flavor. The veal, itself, was tender and not overcooked. Loved the sgroppino ó the best in drinkable desserts as far as Iím concerned. The sweet waiter took his time warming up to us but by the end of the meal Fausto, from Sicily, was our new best friend.

Very disappointing experience because of a very surly waiter.

Our waiter didn't smile once as he rattled off the specials of the day and tried to push these specials even though we politely indicated we would look at the menu. We werenít interested in the specials because we wanted a light lunch - which apparently annoyed him. There were many empty tables so he wasnít rushed and didnít need the table and apparently was not concerned about a tip because there was a 12% service gratuity automatically added to the bill...which he didn't deserve at all.

The food was plopped on the table and was mediocre. We could not wait to leave. We do not recommend this restaurant.
