Went here recently for a friend's birthday and the experience was terrible. We waited an hour and forty minutes for our food. If it wasnt for my friend's birthday, I would've left. I ordered the cajun chicken fettuccine. While waiting for our food, I had a glass of Stella Artois for $4.25. Can't complain there. When my order arrived, I had to return it because there was absolutely no chicken in it. When my order came back, the chicken was overcooked and dry. A couple of my friends had the caesar salad. Now here's the thing. They waited 2 hours for it. 2 hours for a salad?? Give me a break; its an appetizer. Rediculous! The salad wasnt all the great either. Some of the leaves bitter, some were bite sized, and some were even full leaves. Seemed like the chef got lazy and just tore off the leaves and placed it on the plate. There was very little sauce and just very bland. The croutons were BIG pieces of bread. They were not bite sized, they were the size of half of a piece of normal bread. As a restaurant, I think its a bad idea. For a place to just relax and have a drink, I think that will do. I have no complains about the drinks as I have been there once before. First time trying out the food. It was a big mistake. I would have left them a very small tip if they hadnt automatically slapped on the 17% gratiuity. Though, the ambience of the restaurant is nice and the servers are generally friendly.

I went to this restaurant for a family dinner and it was fantastic! The pasta came in huge portions; a pound and a half of pasta was what the server told us. The sauce was very very tasty. The pasta wasnt too hard or too soft. All I can say is "perfect!". We had 5 enormous dishes to share between 11 people and we still couldnt finish the food. We ended up packing 2 up and taking it home. The olive oil and white sauce was absolutely delicious. I recommend the number 20-Paesana in the white sauce. It had baby shrimp, baby scallops, baby clams and smoked salmon in a light dill cream sauce. Just absolutely fantastic. What more can I say? The food is amazing! Go alreadyy!!

Went there for my friend's birthday dinner. Never got to order my food because they said the kitchen was too full with orders, which i think is ridiculous. My other friends who actually did get to order waited almost a full 2 hours before actually getting their orders. Overall, the service was terrible because everytime we asked if we could order yet, the staff would say "just another 20 minutes more". One of my friends later asked them "honestly how long will it be before we can order?" and they replied "probably an hour or so.." Do not go to this restaurant unless you want to wait at least an hour for food. When my friends' orders came, there were no utensils to eat with and we had to go up to the bar and ask for a waitress. And on an other note, parking is terrible since there is limited parking space by the restaurant so I suggest getting there early in the evening. The only good thing I can say about the restaurant is that when my friend's orders actually arrived, it was pretty decent. The ambience of the restaurant was okay. A little wayyy too dark for my liking. I could barely read the menu with the small candles they had laying around the tables. Though the music was again, decent.
