I read the press and had to go. What a disappointment. There were four of us dining and not one outstanding dish. The much hyped risotto was bland. The food wasn't bad, it just wasn't near the expectation I had.
The pasta here is second to none, but the entrees are a little boring and not that well excecuted. The service is downright rude and who's that strange guy walking around the dining room amidst the chaos doing absolutely nothing but picking up the money? Strange vibe, I don't really understand the unflagging popularity.
Food is poorly executed. It seems as the food was just sloped a plate. I had rissoto with squid ink, the flavors where not balanced and to rich(to much butter). I dont understand what all the craze is about.. I wouldnt go back.
