I have never been to a restaurant that charged out rageous ridiculous prices for a meal that was not complete. One price for the protein, one for the carb. I think $23.50 for spagetti and (3) meat balls is high way robbery. Prime rib

By the looks of the outside, this restaurant appears to be a more fancy, high end restaurant. The prices reflected that, but I didn't feel like the food or atmosphere did.

This restaurant aspires to "fine dining" and arrogantly claims to be the "best Italian in town" but it should really be put out of its misery. The service is amateurish, and the food is bland and unimaginative. The real crime is that people are still suckered into coming here for one lousy meal and pressured into paying for it.

Despite vague recommendations from others, we visited here for dinner one Saturday evening and were greeted by a very young hostess in a glitzy prom dress and an old mascot (the server's description) in a tux who had great difficulty just seating us into a practically empty dining room.

Bar service was quick, but the mixed drinks were watered down beyond recognition, a sure sign of a restaurant in a downward spiral. The young server's response to everything was that she was sorry, indicative that she must apologize quite often.

The "hand-pounded" veal was inconsistently thick and tough throughout and looked as if it had been steamed in water rather than sauteed. It shared a common blandness with the Chicken Parmesan that lacked any flavor of a fresh preparation, accompanied with a "famous" red sauce that was uncommonly bitter in taste.

Uneaten meals brought over a manager who touted the restaurant as the "best in town" with nary a complaint, but who, after hearing the numerous issues with our meals, conceded that the chef had turned over his duties to an assistant the night before. We were then presented with a full bill for our uneaten meals. Contesting the bill brought over a haggard looking "chef" to hear our complaints, only to contradict the manager's (his girlfriend) excuses, but finally admit to some issues with the sauce. A second bill was presented with now only one meal removed. Frustrated, worn down, and still hungry, we paid the remaining bill, still in shock by the arrogance of such people, obviously clinging to past successes.

Pros: None

Cons: Poor Food Quality and Value

I found the restaurant to be dirty, the food mediocre and was very disappointed to hear the owner berating one of his employees with vulgar language. The womans bathroom was nasty. This one to miss.
