Had the worst pasta ( with Buletus mushrooms) , overcooked, salty. Peppersteak was also below average. Total disappointment, I do not recommend you to go, total waste of money and time.

The place looks very nice and the food is delicious. The presentation of the dishes is great as well. My husband and I were there twice and liked everything we tried. Their house beers is worth it. And the waiters are very nice.
