“The staff needs training”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2008

An average Italian restaurant. Friendly atmosphere, but noisy. The wait staff needs better training. We were asked twice if we wanted more drinks, but our water glasses remained empty. The pasta side dish was free, unless you specified a type of pasta. Then there was a $5.00 charge. But no one told us that. The chicken marsala was good; the veal was tough. The wrong pasta dishes were served, and despite frequent requests were not corrected. One diner was told his credit card had be rejected. In fact, the waiter had tried to charge an AE card to Mastercard. All comments to the waiter ended in arguments.
In short, not a pleasant evening but a different waiter might have made a difference
