    We waited for approximately 10 minutes before anyone came over to take a drink order. The restaurant was very hot, making it uncomfortable. No one ever came to fill our water, unless we waved them down. The veal dish one of us ordered was tough (they did take it off of the bill).

    Great Father’s Day lunch. Food was good as was service. Only negative was the inside was smoky,presumably from the grilled food, which was a little overwhelming. It lessened throughout the meal. Will definitely return.

    It was amazing as usual. We brought friends who had never been and they will be coming back. We have the taste of Aricosia for 4. Even though one in the party was a vegetarian, there were more than enough options for him. As always the food was prepared and the service was exceptional. As it had been a while since we had caught up with our old friends, we lingered at the table a bit and the server remained attentive although we had clearly finished our meal. One of the reasons my wife and I regularly go is because of how welcoming and friendly the staff is. Big bonus, on Saturday, there is live entertainment. There was a gentleman playing an instrument I have not seen before but it truly added to the atmosphere.
