The decor and lighting make the space feel intimate, fancy yet comfortable. It's the kind of place you want to take a loved one where you know the surroundings will make you feel like a special, intimate couple. But then the food comes out and negates the experience. I started with the spaghettini arrabiata and thought it simply mediocre. My main dish was the tuna, and that was an outright disappointment. The tuna itself was bland, and I thought that the sauces did not really complement the fish. It was as if the chef were trying too hard to come up with something inventive, but failed miserably. The other folks in our party also commented that their dishes did not stand out. On the positive side, the wait staff were excellent. The maitre d', however, was a troglodyte. His absence would have made our evening more enjoyable, but we were interrupted too many times by him and his annoying attitude. Bottom line: go for the ambience, but don't expect a fine gastronomic experience.
Pros: Ambience, decor, wait staff
Cons: Food, maitre d'
