Went to this Italian spot on 4th ave in San Mateo and I have to split my reivew between the food, which was very good, and the service, which was awful.
Four diners gave the menu a pretty good work out from the excellent bruschetta with ricota (surprise surprise).
The entrees were risoto with prawns, excellent, salad with grilled chicken, also very good, pork chop with cherry sause, very good but the polenta was too salty and ravioli with mushrooms in a white cream sauce, once again excellent.
Service was so bad that I had to ask for another wait person - something I never do after 25 minutes of non responsiveness from a sullen waitress.
Her substitute was not much better, although he got the food fast. Someone even had to go to the bar to get water refills - pathetic.
