This restaurant is now called Il Mattone. Not sure why but it doesn't matter. They have a price fix lunch menu for $15 for lunch and it's just okay. Not a lot of choices. Menu isn't expansive and the wine list is pretty meh. Damning...More

Horrible, expensive place to eat. Very bland food with tiny portion sizes. Also, the owner David is so undiplomatic & unprofessional. He always finds excuses to try to justify the bad reviews on his restaurant with retaliation replies & bogus remarks to the former customers....More
