a diner from New York, NY
I wandered into this very cute looking spot after a shopping trip for a light meal. The wine list was good, especially by the glass selections, but that's where the positive aspects end. The waitress said nothing but "yes" in response and wasn't friendly in the least. I ordered the Parma Bruschetta and a salad. The Bruschetta consisted of 2 pieces of chewy toasted baguette on top of which was laid some cold prosciutto, cold cheese and the hardest tomatoes you've ever tasted. The salad was huge, and hugely disappointing. Picture a Wendy's salad shaker put into a large bowl. Shredded iceberg lettuce, cheap (and a tiny portion) of balsamic dressing, celery, and the same aforementioned tomatoes. Oh and supposedly there was fennel somewhere in there. I was really shocked that such a nice looking spot in a great location can get away with such mediocre food. I would expect better from Olive Garden. To add insult to injury everything is incredibly overpriced. They should move this excuse for an eatery to Times Square and leech off of tourists who don't know any better.

I have lived in the neighborhood for years and I'm always pleased with their service. Extremely friendly staff and the food is always consistently good. Pizza is not bad. The buffalo wings are my favorite.
