Cafe Tempesta near St. Johns (second attempt)

What do you guys think of this (relatively new) Italian (pasta) joint on Union Tpke near St. Johns? 4 grads from St. johns opened the place.

I ahve since the last post tried the place once and had orechetti(sp?) w/broccoli rabe and sausage. It was good. They give you bread with dipping oil, and gave us that toasted bread with tomatoes thing. So far I'm impressed but will withhold full judgement untill I can try it a couple more times. I'm definjitely taking my mom there in a couple of weeks for her bday since i think she will like it?

I'm interested in your opinions, and in ordering suggestions. Anyone?

BTW, Monday and Tuesday nights are pasta night, when pastas are $8, and pastas w/seafood are $10.
