The service was great Small portions.
Nothing special. Nice staff and ambiance, the food is just meh.
Rating is based on several visits over the past four years (since opening). I just realized, looking at the website, that La Storia has transitioned from traditional Italian cuisine to a menu with a more Mediterranean influence. I think therein lies the problem, especially since that's not what you might expect from a restaurant that appears to be going for an old school Italian appearance. On a prior visit, I had a delicious and creamy, thick mushroom risotto. On a recent visit, the risotto I ordered was runny and flavorless, despite a variety of vegetables. It was quite disappointing and falls far short of its price point - I took the rest home and added a bit of pesto and garlic to add flavor. Further, the eggplant ravioli was made with a pork sauce - I had a bite of my partner's, then looked in horror at a hunk of meat. I'm vegetarian, and shame on me for not asking to check, but the menu lists the ingredients as "roasted eggplant, ricotta, sauce amatriciana." While Amatriciana sauce could have meat in it, it typically does not and I don't think someone would reasonably expect such a dish to have meat. It's a typical vegetarian option and the meat was an unpleasant surprise that should have been noted on the menu. I hope La Storia takes it back up several notches, especially for what they charge. We like to patronize the neighborhood restaurants, but I've found there to be far better options. I also want to emphasize that nothing was to the fault of our server.
