Maybe too fast. Felt a little rushed. The menu was extensive, the food was very good, not a lot of extras, but the bread was really good. The Lamb shank was done perfectly. The ravioli was very good, but not a large portion.

This came highly recommended for lunch and from the fresh bread to the entree it was outstanding. I'm not great with Italian food names so I'll describe. The appetizer with the mozzarella and tomatoes over toasted bread was the best I've ever had. Very complex...More

Is there a dress code? Just wondering as we went on a vacation and found out that men must wear long slacks to be served in the restaurant after we had made reservations. Thank you

I do not own the restaurant. I would advise to call and ask specifics for any type of allergies to be safe. As gluten free requests seem to be more common, I am sure they will be able to accommodate you. Gustare!
