    I was back to Sistina for the third time and it did not disappoint. The long list of interesting chef specials made it difficult to decide. Selected a roasted artichoke with burrata and shrimp starter and it was delicious. For the main I selected fruitti de mare and it was wonderful. The wait staff was exceptional.

    The waiters hover annoyingly. If you’re not ready to order immediately, they impatiently continue to circle. No follow up when the food is delivered. Mine was overcooked and unexceptional, considering the price. I mentioned it when the waiter inquired about dessert. His response was a brush off. This is the second time I’ve had this disappointing experience. There won’t be a third.

    This is not your ordinary Italian restaurant!! The ambiance is just stunning, from the garden to the art to the hanging glass fish. The food is varied and delectable and the portions are generous. The fresh-baked breads are worth every calorie!
