    I wouldn't recommend. It's very mediocre.

      I agree - I've been once, don't remember now what I had, but recall feeling as it was overpriced and so so food.

      The food is sub-par and overpriced...I see it as a biz-lunch place.

          It was good in its earliest days, but hasn't been worth the time or money in years.

            I agree - I went for brunch and it was just OK.

              I agree with everyone else, but, since it sounds like you're already going, I'd order any one of the pizzas to share with a second person.

                I wouldn't make it a destination place. More like if you're walking by and there's nothing else around that looks decent

                  Honestly, the pastas aren't terrible. And if I remember correctly they had a semi decent wine by the glass list. Just don't get the chicken paillard.

                    Thanks guys, I appreciate all your help! Many of my friends went there for birthday dinners, and I hadn't been there yet, and I wanted see what it was all about. Ha, well I guess it's not as good as they tell me.
