Stuffed mushrooms. By the time this dish was eaten, we were stuffed, no thanks especially to the delicious bread. And we had 3 main dishes to come....

Overall verdict: The food is not authentic Italian, but on the other hand, seems targeted at the stereotype of Italian food: full of cloying cheese and tomato puree, and with rather American-sized portions. Good for the occassional visit; the cloying cheese would probably get you tired of this place rather quickly (hardcore 'cheese' fans: you have absolutely no idea what cheese really is if all you seem to eat are commercialised parmesan and mozarella).
