I definitely recommend this restaurant. The food was very good, nice choices on the menu. Sometimes they will even make you something not on the menu if you ask. Service was very good as well. Dinner was about $40 per person which was very reasonable.

Our disappointment started when the $5 side of asparagus came out with 4 pieces of asparagus. Disappointment grew as my "olive oil & tomato sauce" was actually a creamy tomato sauce. I am mildly lactose intolerant and paid the price for not sending it back....More
