We sat outside at the back, and the area is nicely protected from the carpark that you're actually sitting in. The atmosphere was great, with a lively buzz from nearby tables and the charismatic owner describing the food. The food was good, though nothing more, the price was high and not particularly good value for money. It wasn't authentic Italian by a long stretch, but it was a good sales pitch at being so. If you want Italian, you're not worried about the cost, and you've never left the US, then go ahead. If you didn't meet those criterion, then look elsewhere.
