We were referred by our realtor when we first moved to liverpool/syracuse, referred by the hotel we stayed at when we first got here, and later by others. However, my husband and I went within our first weeks of relocating and were completely shocked that we were disappointed! Solely disappointed by the food. The place was crowded, atmosphere was nice, servers friendly and professional but the food was not great at all. THEN the hotel we were staying in gave us a little gift - a $75 gift certificate to santangelo's for some minor inconvenience with the room - so we went back - and, again, the service was great, wine was good, it was busy but a nice place - however, the food was really not great at all. I actually ate about 1/4 of the appetizer and less than that of my meal. We skipped dessert and stopped for ice cream on the way home! We will never go back - I truly wouldn't pay for Italian food that I can easily make better and cheaper at home.
Pros: Nice decor, fully stocked bar, friendly staff
Cons: The food was disappointing.
