I arrived at 6:30pm and was seated at the bar. Most of the tables and half the 2-seaters were taken. I had the fresh mozzarella crostini which was decent. No liquor license yet but the wine was complimentary (I don't drink).

The waitress warned me when I ordered that the lasagna would take 20 minutes but it took more than 45 minutes after my appetizer for it to arrive. The person next to me also had his pasta entree delayed.

The lasagna with a lamb/beef/pork ragu was really good. The dish made it piping hot through the meal. I was like in an alternate universe as I ate it, not noticing people around me or pausing to tweet about it.

The pistaschio panna cotta had a mousse texture and it came with a strange peanut and dark chocolate brittle.

Service was efficient but cold. I woud come back on my next trip.
