    I want to like this place. Pretty space, convenient, I like pasta. But there are several annoyances. One, I asked for an outdoor table and was told none are available. When we left there were still 2 unoccupied outdoor tables. Two, don't sit me next to the bus station and the toilets when the place is almost empty. Three, if the specials are twice the price of other comparable dishes, let me know. And finally, a biggie, if you charge for using a credit card let me know in advance.

    My octopus and polenta were delicious, but my friend's veal milanese was dry. The waiter was very nice but he was hustling, covering all the tables, so he couldn't be very attentive. It wasn't his fault --they need more help.(I realize there's a server shortage almost everywhere.) The patio lacked ambience, but a few small tweaks could remedy that. And I'm all in favor of saving the bees, but they were really bothersome our whole meal! Maybe they could lure them away? With a few improvements, I'd give it another try. It has potential.

    My Polpo Crudo starter and Pomodorini Salad was prepared perfectly. We had the Veal medallions with shrimp and crab meat special and Veal and Chicken Fontana Tini was our server and managed our groups meal flawlessly. It was a packed Monday evening and he was quite busy but remained attentive. I highly recommend the eatery and will remain a regular !!

    The meal was served within minutes, so we know it wasn’t freshly prepared. The oil tasted burnt, and we had significant GI issues following the meal. The restaurant charged a 3.5% fee for credit card payment, so we tried to pay in cash. The server told us she was unable to bring change because they only had $10 bills. We told her she could keep the change as part of her tip, but it was overall a weird service experience, though the person was very nice.

    Open Table only offered tables before 5pm and after 8pm, but the restaurant was mostly empty between 5-7. I mean 80% empty! Conclusion, don’t use OpenTable, call the restaurant directly.
