We arrived here hoping to find a simple Italian meal but unfortunately the waiter had some sort of mental disability or social ineptitude. The first bad sign was when he literally threw the menus on the table. Okay sir, this isn't New

Italian food that begs you to come back for more! Soups and salads were yummy particularly the french onion. Ravioli was exceptional! A pretty small space but the food makes up for it. A bit pricey but if you want great Italian food this is the place!

We were a party of 6 and arrived very excited to eat some great italian food. We discovered there were new owners (2/1/08) and they didn't have a liq. license yet. Bummer, but we thought we'd be ok w/o it. We ordered an appetizer of stuffed mozzarella breadsticks, which came with a pomodoro sauce. This was fantastic! We all loved it. Next came the salads, which were pretty good, more than just a regular old iceberg side salad. We waited 45 minutes for the entrees to arrive. When they did, the server offered us fresh-grated parmesan. She proceeded to shred cheese all over the our plates, the table, and our laps. Here's what we ordered: 3 fettucine alfredos (one with shrimp), 1 aglio e olio pasta, 1 eggplant parmesan, and 1 bowl of soup. Here's what we received: The fettucine alfredos were made with pasta that was cooked about halfway to al dente and smothered in a horrible, sweet cream sauce that tasted of nothing. The one with the shrimp in it actually made me gag when I tried it--it tasted as if the shrimp had thawed out in the sauce so that the 'shrimp juice' was throughout the sauce. On top of that, the sauce had curdled/separated and was grainy. The aglio e olio dish, which should have been a basic garlic, olive oil, and pasta dish arrived in a bowl and thank god, or else the 1 cup of olive oil that the pasta was floating in would have dripped all over the table. Every slice of garlic (of which there were probably 200) was raw. There was about a cup of pasta floating in the bowl of oil and covered with garlic slices. The eggplant parm was not bad, definitely the best thing we received. We were all so turned off by the food. But the question is...how does a table of six send back all of their food? And what else could we order? We had a huge cross-section of the menu on our table. I would recommend avoiding this restaurant, except for the mozzarella breadsticks. Maybe ordering something with the pomodoro sauce would be good--it was great with the breadsticks.

Pros: Pretty decor, located downtown, good mozzarella sticks & pomodoro sauce

Cons: Outrageously priced BAD food, service below par, no liquor license!
