Even with all the negative reviews, I wanted to try this place. It was pretty good! The maitre'd of the restaurant was a gracious, welcoming lady with a genuine smile. She showed me all the way to my table, giving me a seat with a cushioned back like a Chesterfield sofa's. The other seats were metal ones. I ordered the spicy arancini (rice balls); I want to try the real thing to make sure the ones I make at home are authentic. The Rice balls were piping hot, with a crisp shell, and oozy and soft with mozzarella cheese in the middle. My main course, the tuna fusilli, was also delicious. I liked the little details, like the traditional-looking cast-iron teapot my peppermint tea came in, and the striped blue-and-white cloth napkin. The napkin feels like the kind we were given to use in a restaurant in Italy. It's nice for a date or dinner with friends.
