I seem to be in the minority. I thought the restaurant was lovely and the service was friendly and knowledgeable, though I didn’t need an explanation of what an appetizer is. The pastas were good, not great. (I prefer Don Dickman’s pastas at All’Acqua.) Two glasses of wine, one cocktail, a salad, two pastas and a dessert came to $175, including tax, tip and the 3% health surcharge. I just don’t think it was worth it. What may be coloring my opinion,though, is the fact we were seated at the communal table, which was fine until they sat 6 men who appeared to be part of a food and wine club next to us. One of the men was so loud and obnoxious that we had to hold our conversation for those few moments when his mouth was otherwise occupied.
