Well well, I love Italian food since I’m from Asmara, one of the beautiful Italian colonized city. I grew up eating pasta and Italian food, but this eggplant with pasta was amazing. Hands down! Our server Nicholas was very friendly and attentive, also the place is cool and very wide.
I was excited to order from this restaurant because I remember how good it was 6 years ago. I made an online order for pickup and called once I arrived. I thought there was curbside pickup because I didn’t see any instructions on where to get the food. I asked the woman who answered says, “I guess I can come bring out to you.” [with an attitude] -Terrible hospitality! I don’t feel entitled to receive curbside but, the way the message was conveyed let me know the culture of this place has significantly changed. The worse part was the quality of the food!!! 😩 Not at all does it have the taste of authentic Italian food. Packaging was awful as the liquid spills out easily. I would have been more satisfied with Noodles and Company. Did ownership change within the last 6 years? I’m trying to understand what’s going on here. This place was a staple restaurant in Rockville and may have lost its’ charm. 🥺
Incredible food and amazing service or. Highly recommended and will be coming back.
The reviews for this restaurant are all over the place but we decided to go with a friend's recommendation since she had actually been there recently. It was terrific! We went at an off time but the service was fine and the food was delicious. The decor and background music was just right for what it is.
UPDATE ON BEHALF OF A RESIDENT THAT LIVES WITHIN 5 MINUTES OF THIS PLACE: IF I COULD GIVE THIS PLACE A NEGATIVE I WOULD....on July 3rd my friend (the one from the 1st visit) called the restaurant around 2:45 an employee answered. I listened to her make a 4pm reservation for 2 people(not me because i learned the first time). WELP GUESS WHAT? She gets there and THEY WERE CLOSED!! Now normally i would laugh however now I'm starting to think this place just doesn't want any business from anyone except their family or exclusive patrons! ***DO NOT TRY TO EAT AT THIS RESTAURANT*** So first off website says they item at 11:30 however after 2 hours we pull up only to find that they don't open until "3 pm" as per the door sign. Then we called to verify and the gentleman that answered the phone said they opened within the next hour. Mind you it was 2:38 pm.. So needless to say I can't give you any good stars or reviews because I only know what the restaurant is like from the outside. Good luck to anyone that can get inside and enjoy the food.
