    Overrated, past it's prime, generic red sauce, unexciting, overpriced, dinosaur.

    But i'll refrain from what I *really* think of it. :P

      I think its a good atmosphere, cool vibe but the food is just okay. Nonetheless, a fun night and you could do much worse on the food

        It's kind of a scene-y, and you might spot a celeb or two. I think we spotted Jonathan Adler the one time we dined there. The menu is uninspired cliche and the food just barely cooked competently - that's why we were only there once. There are MANY other better italian restaurants at which to eat. For the same price, you can eat at Babbo, Scarpetta, Alto, Lupa, etc.
