Excellent Italian inspired menu and wonderful staff. You are handed a RF card when you enter and use it to scan when you order your food. The staff makes your order fresh and then you pick up your food to take to a table. When you are done, simply take your RF card to the cashier and settle up. Excellent... More

We enjoyed the pizza and carbonara pasta here. Interesting that you decide ingredients for the made to order menu. A bit pricey, but had big portions, nice atmosphere and quick service. Full bar, beer and wine available.

We went in got our card and preceded to the various chef stations to place our order. We like that everyone gets a card and you can choose what you want and... More

I want to go higher marks for this but can't quite get there. The all ala carte approach is novel and scalable to all appetites. Food quality is good and favorable. Short comings were a few staff miscues. An uncaring bartender, brand new chef needing coaching and a forgotten order diminished the experience. Still for variety and family friendly atmosphere...

This felt like a college cafeteria instead of a restaurant. They give you a card you go to your station of what you want to order. They cook it In front you while you wait, wait and wait. My pasta needed to cook longer, the flavor was good. Absolutely no service at this restaurant, if it can be classified as... More

Unusual set up whereby you have a card to buy the food at various chef stations such as pizza, pasta, salads and drinks and the food is cooked in front of you while you wait. Once received there are many tables to sit down and eat. Fresh food and excellent value for $$$ maybe because no wait staff. The bruschetta... More

Went for a celebratory dinner for my sister and the setup was weird and awful. Food was ok(nothing to write home to mom about) and drinks were watered down. You have to stand in different lines to order your food like cafeteria style but get a page when food is ready. You also get some type of card that the... More

Not romantic. Interesting selection process wandering from station to station each with a menu and pagers. Pizza Gorgonzola was fabulous and Cesar salad very good, but NO anchovies.

Went to this place with 16 of our family members. We really enjoyed the concept. They make your meal in front of you. The food is really fresh we had grilled chicken salad and I had Shrimp Alfredo. The place was nice and right in the hard of heart of downtown Charlotte. If your looking for Italian food and family... More
