I have aleays found this Italian style place to have very poor food and service. Would not recommend to anyone.
THIS PLACE SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN! OWNER HORRIBLE! – I heard this eatery was very good from a local Hawthorne woman.... turned out the total opposite is true! Should have ran when I received my cocktail that had a browned lime in it... the calamari appetizer had approx. 15 pieces in it and the marinara sauce... made inexpensive jar sauce taste good( 7.95)! calamari was greasy and under cooked. the tortellini in brodo soup had approx. 6 totellini in a half full small bowl of liquid that tasted like bullion cube broth. the salad which came with the meals... awful dressing and approx. 6 leaves of mixed greens. the dinner... veal saltimuca ( veal scallopini with procuitto and Mozz cheese over spinach) tasted like what a moldy wet basement would taste like ! it was funky and rotten tasting the veal was thick, breaded heavily and tough... the spinach had no flavor and the sauce tasted like gravy master with chicken broth added. When the owner came and cleared our plates, asked if I wanted it wrapped, i said no,, I did not care for it... he said can we replace it... mind you the waiter asked how everything was before we/I tasted the veal dish. I said no but you can take it off the bill. he actually refused and walked away as I said well thats fine we will never be back. Had I not have been famished after a long day of work and no food I would have left after the rotten lime in my cocktail. I found the restaurant to be old in decor, many staff members running around and it was not even half filled... the food was far below average however the owner was inconsiderate, RUDE and again should be shut down! I work VERY hard for my money and customer service is everything... this owner could care less if we were not happy... he collected his $100 from us... well I HOPE MANY PEOPLE READ THIS AS THIS OWNER SHOULD BE OUT OF BUSINESS>>> there are so many caring hard working Americans out of work now and to think this arrogant inconsiderate man robbed me of my hard earned money and serves below average food and charges the money he does is a crime. THE PLACE SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN! the portions were very small... half filled SMALL bowls of soup... WOW the locals have given this man a gift by keeping him open for 22 years... perhaps back in the day his food was Ok but today... SHUT HIM DOWN !!!! AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL. SHAME SHAME SHAME ON YOU OSSY CAFE!!!!!

Don't eat here! – I have never encountered staff so rude and I have eaten at restaurants around the world. We had a reservation, arrived on time, and were seated at a table by the maitre d. After we had ordered, the waiter said, "Why are you sitting here?" We tried to explain that we were seated here by the maitre d. The waiter and maitre d (who we later found out were brothers) continued to blame us numerous times for sitting there, and at one point even insisted that we used a fake identity to get the table. Believe me, the table was not so great that we would have wanted to be there in the first place! They insisted that the table was for someone else, and tried to move us. I am pregnant and we were there with two small children, so for us to be moved after settling into a table with our children is not a small task. But there were no apologies from the staff, and we were blamed for sitting in the wrong spot. We were then told that we should not have brought children to their establishment. Apparently they do not want children here, so families beware. A maitre d with 23 years experience (or so he bragged) blamed the customer for sitting at a table that he escorted us to. This maitre d has no idea how to treat people. Take your business to a family friendly place- NOT HERE!!! DO NOT EAT HERE!!!
Nice Place – We have eaten here a few times and when it is not crowded it is a great place to eat. It seems when it gets too crowded the serivce is very slow! When it is a bit empty, the service is much better. The food is very good too.
