What a disappointment. First of all, if you want to eat outside and sit in the cozy Italian looking area that they show in the pictures, you have to specifically ask for it when you make your reservation, otherwise, you get seated on the other side of the restaurant, like we did, which is regular tables in the middle of the sidewalk with people walking 3 inches away from you while you eat. Our meal (3 people) : - Small charcuterie board - Shrimp/scallop scampi - Rigatoni Italia - Spaghetti and meatballs Total cost: $155 (with tip) The only highlight of the whole meal was the meats on the charcuterie board, bresaola and speck, which are almost impossible to find outside of Mazzarro's. Delicious. The portions, however, were laughable; if you took off the bunch of wilted arugula and the 20 tastless water crackers on that board, there was hardly anything on it. The scampi sauce was average. Nothing particularly great or horrible about it. Some salt and extra lemon helped it a lot. The entire dish had THREE shrimp and THREE scallops, total. For over $30, that is. The shrimp was very hard and rubbery, but the scallops were plump and nicely cooked. The pasta itself, however, was nothing short of disgusting (for all three entrées). I don't know whether the problem lies in the brand they use, where they source it, how they cook/reheat it, or something else altogether, but let me tell you, it's bad. Bland, poorly reheated and an overall off-putting pasty texture. I asked if they could make it spicy and the waiter said no, but he would bring me some hot pepper flakes. The hot pepper flakes never came. The Rigatoni Italia sauce was not that bad, and, to their credit, the people who wrote reviews complaining about getting regular ham instead of prosciutto in that dish need to understand that that's exactly what "prosciutto cotto" is...just regular, pink ham. Don't let the word "prosciutto" fool you. Prosciutto, as we know it in America, would be called "prosciutto crudo". That having been said, I only know that because I was born and raised in Italy. It would be a lot easier for everyone if they just said "ham" lol. The meatballs were HUGE (not in a good way), literally Godzilla size balls. The flavor of the meat was bland and they were super hard. The entrees were luke warm and altogether a complete let down, especially for the money. They use plates with HUGEEEEEE rims (and I'm talking UFO size rims) to fool you into thinking that you're getting a bunch of food, when you're really not. The description on the menu said that all entrées came with salad and espresso, but the espresso never came. The salads were average at best. I'm sorry, but we won't be back or recommend this restaurant to anyone.
They are very frugal with their servings, but food is great
