    Ehh, food was OK, not great. Service was slow.

    Delicious Italian food! Husband and I have been there a ton and we’ve loved everything we’ve had (especially the pumpkin ravioli). Their salads and the free bread and roasted garlic they offer is amazing! The service is friendly, but slow. Not a big deal though if you’re going for a nice dinner with friends and not worried about time :o)

    This place is great. The food is excellent, service is good and you can’t beat the prices.

    I live close by but hadn’t eaten there in at least 10 years and decided on a Saturday evening to stop by. Bad idea, packed and I was a single but they did get me in pretty quickly, way in the back by the service door but I know, I know, no reservation you get what you get. I must have done something wrong, I ordered a steak, wine, etc. and all I can say is that after a very long wait, my food came luke warm and my best description of the steak is, well, soggy. This was the worst meal I have had in Ballard that I can remember, as I left after paying something around $43.00, and yes I did leave a tip anyway but thinking back, it is not good to tip for a bad meal. But I often separate the waiters from the meal and the service was not bad, just the food.

    And yes like others have mentioned, it was hot in there, uncomfortably so.

    My only suggestion if you do want to go there, get a pasta dish, not meat, maybe they can’t ruin that.

    This place is great. Love the food and all of the options they offer. I haven’t been disappointed yet. I definitely recommend this to anyone in the mood for Italian. The prices are are reasonable too.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

Creative writing is specifically listed, however, I am not sure what to submit. . . Would they accept a few writing samples in the mail after I electronically send my application or should I include the writing in an attatchment with my personal statement online?.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  • 87 dobry fotograf Wrocław // Nov 19, 2014 at 12:30 pm

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
