This is a wonderfully warm, relaxing neighborhood trattoria with dependably delicious food. The wait staff is first rate -- unobtrusive yet friendly and ready to chat on a rainy night. I did notice the owner standing by the bar in a bad mood. ( He was glancing at his watch, irritated by a party of 10 arriving 5 mins. before the restaurant was closing -- but who could blame him for being annoyed?) However, the excellent food and experienced waiters make for a great low key evening. (A certain Hollywood actress can often be seen having a private meal with her family in the back.)

Pros: great food and waiters

Cons: if you want a singles scene, go somewhere else

First, I need to comment on the guy who reviewed this prior to me and he sounds like one of those thousands of miserable people in this city who is competely F.O.S. He has written only one review and his comments sound fake and fabricated, so don't even listen to the bum. I have eaten here about a half a dozen times and the owner, Maurizio is unbelievably warm and inviting, forget the fact that most great restaurants in this city are owned by celebrity chefs that are seen less often by their patrons than a sasquatch. On my first visit, he went above and beyond for my wife who is known to be a picky eater, helping her go through everything on the menu. I don't know of any owner who has ever done this for anyone I know, and I eat out 7 days a week. I just find it shocking that anyone would bad mouth this guy, because in a city swarming with good Italian, Maurizio and his amazing food keep making us come back. Every time I go back, there is another great Northern Italian dish to try and every time I find something more interesting and original than the last. Take it from me, I have eaten everywhere, this is a place you should definitely try and I bet you keep coming back as well.

Pros: Fantastic Service and Great Dishes that rise above most Italian restaurants

Cons: None I can think of

The problem with this Italian restaurant is not the food or the ambience. It is, first, the service because the employee turnover is extremely high. One can only imagine why. But primarily the problem with Maurizio's is the owner/manager. I had reservations there recently and asked to be seated in the front of the restaurant. But Maurizio told us "it is my restaurant and you sit here or you can go home." I was embarrassed in foront of my guest who was a buiness client. Subsequently a woman who we know that works across the street from the restaurant told us she ordered soup and a pasta dish recently for lunch. When she realized she didn't haved time to eat both , she cancelled the soup. Maurizio came out of the kirtchen with the soup, and when she refused it, he took everything off of the table and told her to leave.
How could this restaurant possibly be successful.
