I was looking forward to some good Italian food and had been told that this was a great place by several coworkers.
We must've caught them on a bad night or my coworkers have really bad taste. The bread was stale and the spiced oil was just some dried herbs in the oil that did nothing to improve the flavor. We ordered a Caprese salad that was tasteless and lacking any visual appeal. The lettuce was Iceberg piled in the center with nothing added to the tomatoes or the mozzarella. We asked for some olive oil or balsamic and was brought some prepared italian dressing and were told that they didn't have any balsamic.
At this point, we decided to find somewhere else to eat.
The waitress, which tried to do a good job but spoke very little english was still trying to take our orders. The owner was standing in the dining room and we asked him to come over. He seemed disinterested in our comments and told us that they had good pasta dishes and that they didn't need any balsamic. He didn't offer any other comments about the food or service.
I hope that this a bad night but given the owners attitude, I have my doubts.
