Comments=Made reservations for this establishment to celebrate a 21st birthday party because it was suggested as being a "wonderful family oriented place to eat".  We ended up waiting over 1 hr and 30 minutes for our food. We asked the waiter what was taking so long with the food, and he said aggitated, and with a big sigh, "I give up!!" And, when we went up to the Manager/Owner of the establishment to complain about the poor service we were receiving, and would at least like to receive an apology from someone and be compensated the gratuity we had to pay for our party of 8 people, he threatened to call the cops on us and throw us in jail. Mind you, we were calm in stating what poor service we were receiving, but when asking for compensation, the Manger/Owner of the establishment became really upset and agitated at us, pointing his finger in our face, yelling that there would be no compensation, and that he would threaten to call the cops if we did not stop complaining.  His excuse was that he was short 1 chef and did not have the man power to get his meals out at once--even though a party of 12 who came in at the same time as us was able to sit down and eat their meal way before we did, a party of 4 was able to sit down AFTER us and able to eat their meal  BEFORE we did, and a party of two who came in, at least 30 minutes after we did, was able to order and receive their food BEFORE we did. As far as the food was concerned, for $15 a plate, the dishes were not brought out at the same time, half the plates were cold, all meals were bland, the veal chops were dry, and the pasta was salty.  And, after all this, the Manger/Owner of the bar still did not give us any compensation for the poor service that we received.   This place was not a "wonderful family oriented place to eat", nor would I recommend other friends and family to eat there. The birthday girl was so distraut that her party was ending up this way, that she just wanted to go home and forget about doing anything else. Thanks a lot for nothing Capozzoli!!!!!
