Went for dinner with friends. As always everything was great. Frank is a great host, his daughter made us feel at home with the service. Nice wine list and excellent pasta dishes. I had the trout special, it was perfect. Will be back soon.

I always forget about this restaurant but am always delighted after I go. The food is excellent and consistently good. Varied and reasonable wine list and fantastic service. The boar is excellent and the homemade pastas sublime. One of the best in Buffalo
