I'm not going to lie, but we didn't have the best of experiences in the past. Last night, however, was truly great. We had no reservations but were still seated promptly. Wine was very good. Appetizer was prosciutto and mozzarella- it was huge and very...More

Excellent food and service. Went on a Saturday night expecting advertised music and they didn't have any. The establishment sent over a nice dessert tray for the 2 birthdays we were celebrating.

I did not enjoy my entrée and while my salad was OK, for $11.00 it was too expensive. On the other hand, my wife enjoyed her meal. I had the duck confit with pasta and found it lacking flavor. My wife had a veal dish...More

Had lunch here with my husband at this lovely restaurant and enjoyed some of the very best Italian food we have ever had. I was very surprised to see the choice of soup or salad comes with the lunch entrees, including pasta entrees. The salad...More
