We love 220 and eat there somewhat regularly ... I'd say twice a month. The food is great and the wait staff are all friendly and professional.
We've enjoyed many of the fish dishes, chicken with artichokes, the risotto ball (plural--citysearch won't let me write this word) are amazing and I love the tomato and mozzarella salad. Recently we had desert and both the cheesecake and the tiramisu were mouth-watering.
The wait staff are always friendly and helpful, and exceedingly professional. I like the noisy, amiable ambiance of the place. It feels like a warm, busy neighborhood restaurant.
The hostess, however, practically ruins the place. She never greets you with a smile. She acts as though your presence is an imposition on her time at the podium. She looks down at you over her glasses, perched on her nose, and will ask: ""Do you have a reservation?"" as though if you don't, you're an idiot.
Even when the place is empty.
We were there early one night and it was rather empty. We asked to sit by the windows as it was a sunny day. First she sat us by the door, then, when we asked to sit away from the blustery door and closer to the middle, she sat us all the way in the back in the dark, and gave us a look that could freeze for asking for a better seat at all.
We go here regularly, so believe me, she was not having an off night. We have discussed not returning to 220 just because of this rude woman.
I'd like to find out who the owner is and write a letter.
If you're lucky, you'll go to 220 on a night that the hostess is off.
Pros: Great food, great waitstaff
Cons: The hostess is so rude it's offensive
