We were lucky to get a table as we did not have a reservation but someone who did did-not show! We always try to find restaurants that are not part of a chain; especially for special events. The calamari was ok but a little rubbery and our entree came before we were even half way through the appetizer. My tagliatelle with braised duck rage was amazing however my adult son had the carbonara and although it was tasty, the portion was extremely small. Pasta is fairly inexpensive to make so that was very disappointing. In the end, I shared mine. We will probably give it one more try. The wait staff were very friendly.
