Very busy but service was very bad. Not attentive at all. The dish I ordered was served lukewarm. I will chalk it up to a bad night, and try again.

They did not honor our reservation for three. Said we had a reservation for two and we would have to wait at least 30 minutes. Also said we should call them instead of using open table. We left after not being seated i45 minutes later.

Unfortunately we were only seated to our table of 6 one hour after our reservation at 6:30 pm. How we lost out table when we were there on time is beyond me. They mentioned it was a miscommunication and they offered each of us a drink while we stood waiting.
Though, the food was great

Went on a Saturday night, with a reservation. Had to wait about 10 minutes, as it was busy. Food was delicious and plentiful. Went with friends and we all said, it’s our new go to in Hallandale for Italian.

Service was slow and horrible. The staff never bothered to check back to see if everything was ok. Items we requested never came. Food was not good I sent my order back and my husband’s pasta were uncooked. After waiting nearly an hour for our food we did not bother to reorder. Overall the experience was disappointing. Will not return and I don’t recommend.

Very loud, very busy , our table was very close to the diners beside us at a 4 top . Our waiter took our order & never came back until he asked if we wanted desert , we declined & he delivered the check . Never checked that all was okay . My friend’s spinach was cold . Never asked if we wanted a second cocktail either .
Had been there before during the week & it was a totally different experience. Will never go again on a Friday or Saturday night.

We ordered meatballs for appetizers and our waiter told us they were small but they served us 2 large meatballs. We ordered a chicken dish similar to scarpiello and veal francese. Food was very good but we waited 45 minutes to get it. In fact, a couple that came in after us was served their entrees before us. For dessert we shared a Napoleon and was more crunchy than creamy. In closing, food was very good but service was average at best.

Waiter couldnt spend 5 minutes to explain the menu. Saud he had 6 other tables to work at and left us. When food was brought, instead of 3 separate platters for 3 different people there was 1 platter which they split in front of us into 3. Right in front of us. It was a sat night soo maybe too busy, but when you charge what you charge, service shouldnt suffer.

The food is very good at not exceptional considering how expensive the restaurant is. I had the lamb chops and my husband had the egg plant Parmesan. They were both good.
The service was excellent. I appreciate when a waiter comes over several times to make sure that your food is OK.

Too noisy for an easy conversation. Food was delicious, however, the regular pasta with shrimp and clams was prepared differently, and there was hardly any pasta. Considering the price, why skimp on pasta?

La comida y el servicio en general, impecables. El único problema es que teníamos reserva e igual tuvimos que esperar mesa por 40 minutos. El lugar es muy concurrido, las mesas están muy juntas y el nivel de ruido es alto. Le da un ambiente particular, pero puede haber personas a las que les desagrade. Hay valet parking.

We had a reservation at 8:45 and they sat us around 9. The girl mentioned that it may take a little bit to get served because they were busy. The waiter came by and brought us water and said he would be back to take our order but we may have to wait 10 minutes. Every time he would walk by he would say he he would be back in a minute. We sat there with our menus on the table for over a half an hour and then the hostess came by to apologize and basically said they can’t serve us because the kitchen would not be able to get us our food. Disgusting that they had us sit there for over a half hour before even acknowledging us with this. Would not reccomend this place at all. She offered us a gift card and told her no as I would never come back!!!👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻

I am not sure what was going on and why they would take reservations, but after sitting for more than an hour and 30 minutes all we had was our salad and two drinks. We never got our entrees and asked for the check. There was no reason why we had to wait and ask for our dinner order, but instead just asked for the check and left. We never were even asked if we wanted a second round. The place was completely disorganized with many other tables not getting their food in a reasonable amount of time.

I wish I could give a better rating, but it would not be deserved. This visit was extremely disappointing and while we have been in the past and had okay meals, this visit involved an 1.5hrs wait for food that never arrived before we opted to leave and go somewhere else.

The management was not empathetic at all and the waiter who served us was not either.

I would give it a hard pass going forward.
