The lamb chop special and the Saltimbocca are spectacular.

The lamb chop special and the Saltimbocca are spectacular.

I'm sad to report that the restaurant that once was spectacular (as Greek Italia) has frankly deteriorated into a poor excuse for Italian food. I had previously rated Greek Italia as 5 stars; however, under new ownership (and a name change) the once delectable restaurant is now not worth visiting. My husband and I ate there tonight. I had the ravioli stuffed with what should have been veal and spinach (so why was there carrot in there?). My husband had a pasta dish with sausage and spinach. Terrible. The sauce for my dish should have been (as listed on the menu) a creamy marinara; however, it tasted almost exactly like brown gravy! My husband's dish tasted of clams or fish although no seafood should have been in there and the sausage tasted like "sawdust."

The salad was good as was the complementary foccacia. The entrees were truly inferior.

Hands down, this is the worst Italian restaurant I've ever been to. My suggestion is for the owners (who I believe are Italian, which is shocking) to go back to the former Greek Italia's menu and recipes. Hire back the chef!
