If it was just about the food...

....then the place would rate very well, unfortunately too many problems to recommend this place.
We had a reservation, but our table wasn't ready when we arrived, in spite of the restaurant not being full.
We sat in the lounge and the waitress dropped food menus on our table and walked away. We told her we were waiting for our table in the dining room and she gave us a drink menu but no wine menu. When we asked for one she said they were all being used... but the place wasn't full, or even close?? My wife wanted a glass of bc red beyond the house wine and the waitress said they didn't have such a thing. When we did finally get a wine menu later there were at least 3 other local reds by the glass. Apparently this waitress must have been new?
Once we were seated I ordered a glass of wine to drink with my meal once I finished my beer. The waitress brought a carafe but no glass, explaining that they were out of clean glasses and she would bring one when they were ready? I ordered the Prime rib, but our waitress didn't know they were out. We both ordered steak, my wife's off the combo menu, mine a different cut from the a la carte menu. When we got the steaks, they were exactly the way you want them, except they cooked mine medium and my wife's medium rare, which was the opposite of the way we ordered them.
In all fairness the food was quite good, the sides were tasty the green beans tasted great, the steak was good, but far to many glitches for a place that aspires to be a step up from the run of the mill. My wife opined that this would be okay for a place that had recently opened, but they have been here for a couple of years, really how long do you need to work out the bugs?
2 steaks, 2 salads 2 a la carte sides, 2 glasses of wine and one beer, total: $140 before tip. I expect far more for that amount.

Great Beer letdown
Submitted Saturday, December 22, 2012 - 3:27pm [Dine in]

40 plus taps with real time screens showing how much is left in each keg. The food is pretty good but the prices have been going up at the same time the portion sizes have been going down.
The service on the other hand is poor, most of the staff need to find non-service industry jobs because they are just not good at it. Even worse is that after having been a semi-regular since this place opened (because of the beer), some of those same surly staff are regulars, ouch. If you can't overlook poor service for the awesome beer menu then don't go.

If there's nowhere better to go...

...and you don't care that you are in a resaurant that thinks it's a sports bar then by all means drop by. Unfortunately for this Anducci's there are a dozen italian places in the neighborhood that can beat them in one way or another. Taste, style, ambience, service, most of a the heights Italian are better than this. Service was average. Some of the meals with our group were great, a couple were average and one was downright horrible. Pretty much what other reviews say but all in one vist. The ambience leaves something to be desired and the noise with the big screens tv's was irritating. Certainly not a place I would frequent again, and I, like others live in the area and would like to be impressed
