Food was just Ok. For this price point, I want more than Ok. Sea bass Ravioli was fishy. Fresh fish isn't fishy. Gnocchi was not up to par...had better in Tuscany. Good wine selection though.

With enjoyed a birthday lunch, with an array of different dishes. All were top quality, and matched with a good wine. Our servers were very helpful and pleasant. All in all, a great experience, though a little pricey.

We considered the cheeses the best we have had, and we have had good ones all over the world. We returned 6 times in two weeks for lunch and... More

Very nice wine selection and the food was traditional and fresh. Excellent preparation, friendly service in English and a warm feeling to the place. The entrance might fool you into thinking they are closed, just head on in for a good meal and swing by the gourmet shop to take some yummy treats along with you.
