I read the few reviews here, which were not raves, but I wanted Italian, and it was close by.
1st off, I was not in the mood for Pizza, Had I been, the review may read differently. They looked beautiful, with nearly paper thin crust, cooked in a wood oven. They looked like winners.
SOmeone else mentioned that the tables and chairs are cheap. Plastic folding tables and chairs like the spaghetti dinner at the school fundraiser. The setting however id very pleasant,
As another writer mentioned, the service was Perfect. Not a complaint to be found with the service.
Bruscetta: The toppings were ok, not as flavorful as other recents, but just fine. The bread however was horrible. I love bread. I freshly toasted piece of fresh bread is a wonderful thing. This was too thin, and definately more than a day old. When I bit in, it shattered. I ate the tomatoes with a fork and left the bread. Sad.
Tuscan soup. I have had several versions in restaurants and have always enjoyed it. Usually chunks of potatoes, and sausage, or beef, This average size bowl, had approximately 1.5 fluid ounces of solids in it. It was more of a consomme, than a soup. A bit of tomato sauce as a base and A LOT OF SALT. I couldn't eat it. Oddly, as it sat there, it seperated into layers. Tomato at the bottom, and clear liquid at the top. I tasted the top and it tasted like the ocean. Way salty, but since when does soup seperate (other than very fatty, which this was not). ICK.
Fussili and Champiñón s: Pasta with cream sauce and mushrooms. This was the best of the lot, and I ate almost all of it. It too was salty, but that sometimes happens with a bunch of Parmesan cheese, as this had. If I had had only this one dish, my complaint would have been that it was a bit salty, and left it at that.
The place has good bones, but needs a lot of work in the kitchen from my only experience. I wish them luck and hope they take this criticism constructively.
