This restaurant was not very good. Mr. diva and I ordered the calamari to start, and it was way overcooked. The breading was nicely salted, but it encased inedibly rubbery rings of squid. We sent the appetizer back, and we got a marginally better version. It was still overcooked.
It was Mr. diva's birthday, so I wanted all the food to be scrumptious. My entree of chicken parmigiana was good, but his zuppa de pesse was not good at all. The shrimp and calamari were terribly chewy and overcooked. All in all, it was a disappointment. I'm still looking for good Italian seafood in the area that we can't make at home.
