Bar Stuzzichini

I also agree that the place is undeserving of good reviews. I went there recently, made reservations for 5:30 pm & was seated at a tiny, cramped table in the bar section instead of the dining room, despite all the empty tables. There was no reason for that other than just the management doing a power trip thing. When I went home, there were 2 messages left in the afternoon, with one of them threatening to cancel the reservation unless I called back immediately! The guy who took the reservations did not say I needed to confirm again!

The food was OK, certainly does not compare to the real thing in Italy, but more importantly, was overshadowed by our experience there! I will never be back there nor will I recommend it to friends. There are too many other great restaurants here for people to put up with such a disrespectful management.

Bar Stuzzichini - Very Mediocre

I'm so glad to read that there were others with bad experience at the place! After seeing good reviews, I made reservations there one day in advance. When we arrived, we were seated at a tiny table in the cramped bar section, instead of one in the dining area. And there were many empty tables in the dining section & it was only 5:30 pm! I didn't complain because I had an out of town friend there, but it really felt like a slap in the face! They're a fairly new restaurant & I'm surprised they are treating their diners with such disrespect! The food was fine, but certainly not great, & completely overshadowed by our experience there. There are so many great restaurants out there that will treat people with more respect. Unless you're a masochist & don't mind being treated badly, there is no reason to go to Stuzzichin!!
