I'm not into writing a bad review because I understand how hard it is to run a business in this tough economy but the truth must be told! The local newspaper advertised a grand opening buffet, $25 a person...why not? I was hoping for a fabulous dinner thinking that the establishment would put out their very best to of course attract new clientel. IT WAS NOT WORTH IT!!! Service was minimal, not exceptable even though it was a buffet. Our plates were not cleaned off the table...our menus that was brought to the table finally had to be taken away by the "manager". Had to ask around if there was any coffee. Also confusion of whether a check was coming to our table. It was thought that our meal would've been paid up front upon arrival. Then when we received the check...a 18% gratuity was added and another misc service charge of 2% was also added. We questioned the surcharge and it was stated that it was a service uptick for the management. Who tips management anyway? WEIRD...that's money taken away from the wait staff. Not a nice way of treating the staff or penny itemization for customers. Really wanted to like this place but since Paparazzi has left the location(such a beautiful restaurant)...what a waste of a place for this restaurant. Now the other reviews may have been great but if this is the new opening of Dilettos...you've be warned. Perhaps wait and see if they get any better but tonight ....no good, sorry Dilettos we won't be coming back:(

BTW...the buffet food was pretty much overcooked...and not hot, just lukewarm food. The place seemed to be having a in-house grand opening party but as paying customers the food wasn't worth it. Here's the food breakdown of the choices. (Cold apps)- romaine salad - foccacia bruschetta with tomatoes & herbs- tri color salad (Entrees)- butternut squash ravioli, chicken scarperiello w/sausage & potato, chicken marsala, beef tenderloin with mystery sauce, and eggplant/tomato/mozz panini to round off the choices. (For dessert)- vanilla ice cream with chocolate brownie wedges. Coffee.
Total price including the 20% tip that was added to the bill for 2people...$64.58 Now do you think that was worth it? Case close.

I have been here many times prior to new ownership. The place seems to have more of a beat to it and the food is great as well. My girl and I had a great margherita pizza for an appetizer and osso bucco for dinner - excellent dinner.

The kid that bought it came by our table and chatted with us a bit, not sure if he is Italian or not but he knew his Italian food. He is kinda funny too. He made us feel at home.

I will go back
