Good food but extremely SLOW and too noisy
We ate there last night (Wednesday) at a table in the bar. It was so noisy we coudn't hear ourselves think. I walked through the dining room on the way to the restroom and it was just as bad in there. It used to be a cozy restaurant before the remodel, but now it's noisy.

We had a crostini appetizer that was uninspiring and bland. This took 45 minutes to come out. Another 40 minutes later, our dinners finally arrived. I had the vodka pasta, which was excellent, but my companion had the diavolo pasta and it was spicier than he had ordered. It was also blazing hot temperature-wise, which made us suspect it had been under a heat lamp or microwaved while they prepared my dish. He had to wait a good 10 minutes for it to cool off enough to eat.
The worst part was the waiter came by and apologized about the wait and offered to refill my companion's wine while we waited. We took that to be an offer to comp the wine as a result of the long wait, but when the bill arrived, he'd charged us for the wine. We were not impressed.
