After walking out the first time there because we were completely ignored, we decided to give them a 2nd chance. The host checked us in gave us a 20-30 min window to be seated, served us a glass of wine and left us for dead. Several later arriving parties were seated before us. I inquired and to my surprise, the host never actually wrote our name down. He then asked for our name and put us behind three other groups. When we arrived, we were the 2nd party waiting. After 30 minutes, we were put 4th on the list.
The manager offered me a free dessert for our "inconvenience". We paid for our drinks and again walked out before eating.

This was your second chance. There will not be another. Aweful, simply aweful. BTW, Napaletano's was delicious and closer to home.

"Come on in. Sit anywhere!" We were very pleased, after hearing excellent word-of-mouth reviews to try O Solo Mio. The parking is ample and the place itself is bright and cheerful.
The menu had a number of items we wanted to try. We chose penne alla burina which was flavorful and nicely presented. The spaghetti with meatballs was a more-than-generous portion and very good.
If you don't want the garlic rolls (which we didn't) you may ask for plain rolls with butter and they are happy to oblige.
The soup to start off was quite good - the day's special a creamy chicken and vegetable.
We were too full for dessert but the dessert menu looked inviting with a lot of variety.
The service was attentive and efficient.
We took the leftovers in to-go boxes and will definitely return again.

Way to expensive for what you get. Salad was ok but not amazing. Waiter was very pleasant and worked hard. Atmosphere OK, nothing special. Disappointed

Family of 4 on a not so busy Monday night. Immediate seating then left to rot. I watched our server bus 4 tables, cash out 2 other tables then come over to our table and said "you haven't received your rolls yet?" No, nor has anyone been over to take our order. The server left only to seat another table, take their drink order and serve them their drinks. My family got up an walked out. 30 minutes total from when we were seated.
