Really liked their Wednesday night "Raid your cellar" concept where you can bring a bottle of wine.

I’ve been to Fondata several times - the food is always good and until yesterday the service had always been good too. It’s not so good when you have to ask for bread, butter and sugar several times. I had finished my coffee before sugar arrived for my friend. Maybe they were short staffed????
