Less than satisfying for an Italian eatery. Only reason for any stars is the cordial service. Food was over cooked and bland.

Thank you for dining with us. There is no cheese in the Lobster cream sauce unless when the waiter was at your table you had him grate Romano cheese on your dish that would work its way into the sauce. Hope to see you again.
