I finally tried this restaurant last evening after hearing much hype about it both here and elsewhere. Although our food was cooked to the perfect consistency (tender veal, lamb shank falling apart) I was disappointed: the food was good but not great, and really didn't live up to its reputation. It just didn't compare to some of the places I've eaten in South Philadelphia or to the real deal places in Italy. My husband agreed with me as well. I think they definitely had the cooking technique down pat but missed one of the most important features of great Italian cooking: less is more.
Is it possible this was an off night? Or is this just not as great an Italian restaurant as it's made out to be?
