4 of us had a working lunch. We shared some delicious bruschetta - the tomatoes were so fresh. Then shared a deep dish pizza - spinach and mushroom. The service was very good and the food very fresh - you could tell it was made there and then with fresh ingredients.

Walked in on Saturday afternoon- nobody was at the reception desk so waited and then a gal said to have a seat and she would bring some menus. No menus. I found a couple of menus on the bar and waited some more to order. Two employees now at the hostess desk paying no attention to the customers. Finally gave up and left after about a total of 10 minutes with not even a We will be right with you. Maybe just timing cause i thought from the reviews it would be worth it but maybe next time i am in town I will try again.

We swear by TripAdvisor as a restaurant finder but this is the first time that our experience was so at variance with the ranking. We had made a reservation (and I received a confirmatory email) but they did not seem to have a record of it. Never mind, it was half empty so they found us a table - but it was grubby and the surface (of what seemed to be padded vinyl) was torn in places. The service was indifferent. The meal arrived without undue delay but the starter was pedestrian (one salad drowned in dressing despite having asked for dressing on the side, the other an overdone portabello mushroom suffocated in melted cheese and sauce) and the main courses even worse - my scaloppine was chewy and floating in a very acidic sauce with what seemed to be tinned artichokes. It was not quite bad enough to send back to the kitchen so we ate some of it and left. Perhaps we were unlucky to have visited when they were having a bad night; or perhaps one ought to just eat pizza there (which did not seem too bad judging from the plates being carried past us).

The food here is excellent. Anything from the salads to the stuffed pizza to the desserts. My friends and I ate here twice during our visit because the food is so good. It's a heavy meal and the sampler of desserts was amazing. It was a lot of food and we felt insaely full but very happy.

It's not cheap, but it's pretty good. My friend swears by this place. I red red a pasta dish and the kale salad. She ordered the salmon. We were both happy with our dishes.
