I can still count how many times I’ve been here with 1 hand. During this visit, I finally had a chance to sit down and try their food. I had called to reserve a table on a Saturday for later on that night. A man by the name of Marco picked up and mentioned that they were going to have a party of 30 around the time I was asking to place a reservation. He didn’t specifically tell me that he wasn’t able to fit us in, however, I didn’t budge. I assumed it was going to be impossible for them to seat us since the restaurant was fairly small. Shortly after getting of the phone with him, he found a way to my party into their busy schedule by following up and calling me back. Kudos!
