Six of us met there Wednesday, Sept.4 for dinner. I had mussels...not one had flesh even as large as a pea, and it all tasted slightly overcooked. Should never have been served. Sad. Someone else had fried calamari...small rings smothered in a too thick coating of... breadcrumbs? ...flour? Hard to tell what, but not good. Someone had the wine/short ribs on spaghettini...the ribs were VERY salty! The scallops were just o.k., The salads, mine was gorgonzola/toasted almonds... were fresh, generous and good. There was only one variety of sauvigon blanc on the wine list...we had to decide quickly if it was spoiled or just poor. We shared the bottle among was not very good, but seemed to match the overall impression of the food. It was a spur of the moment family gathering, impossible to reschedule or move to another restaurant, and a sad experience. Never again!
