    Bread is STALE, beyond stale. Pasta is too salty, sauce is also soooo salty. Who uses black pepper in a white sauce? #cheftalk

    Should've listened to others. I don't mind paying $$$, but service was not up to par. Ant on my table, fruit flies everywhere, very overpriced wine (used Vivino), and Why am I pouring water myself?

    Good but not good enough to justify the price tag. It's way overpriced. I've had much better meals for less. Service was reasonable but not exceptional. Would not return.

    Handkerchief pasta w/ their award-winning pesto is an absolute must. And although their wine selection is very good, I have to recommend their tequila cocktail, "Prohibito."
