My wife and I and two friends had dinner at the newly opened Vita Ristorante on a Saturday night.We had high expectations for the evening which unfortunately were not met.I guess there are still some teething problems.The overall service was fine but the food was a little underwhelming,particularly the main courses.I and another guest had the Veal Cottaletta with a price tag of $45.It was overcooked,dry and tough.I come from an Italian background so I think I understand veal.I doubt what I ate was actually bobby calf or genuine veal.
Poor customer service and food not worthy of the amount of money paid out!
The food & the service was fine, but it had been a very hot day & was still hot at the time of our visit & the air conditioning didn’t seem to be working. One of our party was very uncomfortable & we had to cut short our catchup.
