Mostly ranked high because of the great outdoor seating area, very "Tuscany-like" - large tables, beautiful garden decor, friendly, promotes a long dining experience and would be terrific for large fun groups wanting to stay at a table and drink and eat. Also romantic due to the decor and overall ambience although not really cozy.

Re: “Sinibar

Maybe because they are new, the waitstaff was very attentive and approachable, but the food needs to get more of an identity and add appeal. My steak dinner was highly recommended by the waiter, and it was okay. My friend had a chicken breast dinner which was, again, passable but not very exciting or particularly well-prepared. The carpaccio appetizer was standard to most restaurants and probably the best thing we had. The salad was good but the dressing was oily and needed flavor. Except for the salad dressing and the bread spread, the chef had a heavy hand with salt. Great decor and atmosphere, especially with more people, but the chairs are TINY and very uncomfortable.
