Made reservations for 8pm on my birthday, Saturday. Arrived 15 minutes late, parking, even in free garages, was full. Upon arriving was told our table was being cleaned off. Fifteen minutes later we asked about our table and were told they were getting us a really good table. A few minutes later we were seated. The noise was so bad we could not well hear the specials. We chose italian sausage stuffed mushrooms, prosciutto wrapped melon, lamb shank, and trout special. The mushrooms were good, 3 for $9. The wrapped melon was good and unique, also about $9. The trout was thin on a thick bed of wilted spinach, with a seafood sauce. Was good enough but expensive at $26. The lamb shank was totally worthless. It reminded me of ordering a roast, a mass of meat with the bone sticking out, extrememely overcooked. Served with risotto, which I am not a fan of anyway, the rice had a chaulky center (not cooked enough). The shank dish was $25 and I would have preferred a good sandwich. The wines were so-so. The waiter asked if we wanted desert, we said no. Waiter then showed up with strawberry italian-style cake, complimentary. Make me think, what if we had ordered desert? Why would they ask? The service was average.
All in all; expensive, need to choose your dishes carefully, too loud for anything but an outside voice (at least on Saturday nights between 8 and 9. Don't bother with reservations, they don't know what that means.
Cons: Price, dishes, noise
