Uvarara in Middle Village?

janie Jul 24, 2011 07:46 PM

Have never been here, and there's so many glowing reviews on yelp, excellent zagat rating (take that with a grain of salt), and michelin praise..........wondering who's been recently, and what the standouts are? Prices are a bit high for me at the moment, so would like some guidance ordering...Seems like all the pasta is freshly made--and child's menu is also available and inexpensive....

Doesn't really get much of a mention on chowhound, except rarely..............thanks

      Had dinner at Uvarara earlier this year and found it thoroughly underwhelming. The preparations were middling to disappointing (not least the badly oversalted pasta), service erratic to non-existent (as comically fawning attention was lavished on a party of regulars across the room), and the live music so loud as to defeat any semblence of conversation. I have no idea if this was a representative experience but must say it was a major disappointment (and not cheap). Zero desire to return.

        You might want to check the inspection report.

          Anyone been back to Uvarara more recently? Is it worth the trek/price?

          It was strongly recommended to me by a friend who really knows Italian food and hasn't yet steered me wrong...
