I took my fiance there for our Xmas dinner and I can tell you from being an amateur chef that this was the most disappointing restaurant experience I had in San Francisco!
We had pasta dishes priced at $26 and $29 each and honestly they were worth 10 to 12$. No more.
I basically paid $29 for two slices of schnitzel and some pasta with marinara sauce. But the worst was my girl with $26 for two thin slices of dry and terrible tasting chicken with some green beans. She is allergic to gluten so we asked if we could have any other carb than pasta. The answer was a plain no. No Rice or potatoes available.
I will definitely never go there again! The worst restaurant experience ever!

I have never been treated better in person. Mom made me the best eggplant ever and my date the best broccolli rabe she ever had. Every time has been perfect. But today (18 September 2009) I called, as I do often, to have pizza delivered
