Lunch here today was excellent: appetizer was lightly fried thin eggplant slices, crisp, on top of fresh mozzarella with arugula; main was a salad with grilled chicken, very tasty. Gina our server was attentive and knowledgeable.

Food was not as good this time. My fish was overcooked and I brought that up to the owner but didn't get any love. Server was a bit unusual as well.

This is my 2nd bad experience after writing rave reviews. The waiter today was terrible-uninformed and lazy. I asked what comes on the club and he simply said you know it is a club sandwich. I have several allergies which is why I asked. I...More

Delicious Italian fare with attentive service. Lobster ravioli and veal chop (served with truffle sauce or made into Parmesan) are my favorites, but haven't had a pasta or other entree that wasn't very good. No need to go to "The Hill" to get fine Italian...More
