Again we went, three years after last visit. Same deal: food is good, quiet elegant atmosphere, pleasant service..but about 20-30% higher than upscale Italian places with similar cuisine. Is it worth it? Being able to converse is a rare virtue in restaurants, and as I get older I appreciate it more. Just considering the food, the prices are not worth... More

We had veal scallopini was a little tough but still prepared well. Lobster fettuccine was excellent. Calimari was outstanding. It was not overbreaded or over fried.

Food is excellent, service is attentive and knowledgeable. The location is a little hidden gem, restaurant is in what used to be a home, historic bldg, each room is unique and the outdoor covered patio is an oft overlooked great spot to dine. Definitely recommend!

I can see why they get excellent reviews. The ambience is lovely and the service attentive but the food has much to be desired for the cost. Great place to empress someone if your meal is secondary to your agenda.

While this is a repeat visit for us, my wife and I invited her sister and husband to join us. We were quietly celebrating my wife's birthday. When deciding what to order, my brother-in-law was going to "be safe, and order Chicken, as it's 'hard to mess that up'". I recommended that he try their veal, as I have always... More
