We're trying it on Friday and wanted to see if anyone had any experience with this?

    Hopefully your experience was better than mine. Just had dinner there last night and was incredibly dissapointed. The appetizer was good (grilled Puliese sausage over fava bean puree), but the main courses were dreadful. The sea bass special had little to no flavor, the accompanying seafood risotto was still crunchy, and the supposed "signature pasta" (cavatelli crudaiola) was essentially chopped tomatoes over cavatelli; metallic tasting and quite bland.

    Had our server checked on us even once, perhaps the meal could have been saved. The desserts looked wonderful, but the 15 minutes it took to try and get the servers attention made us head straight to Margie's Candies on Montrose.
