I have eaten here on so many occasions with friends and family and it never disappoints! The all night set menu is delicious and the wine selection is superb. Would definitely recommend the catch of the day or the clam linguine.

It really is not a child's kind of place - pretty sure they do not have a child menu. Depending on the child' age I think the restaurant would be fine; I.e., little kids probably would not work.
