I love this place! It's quiet and has a unique menu. There are many healthy options. They have an excellent vandalia onion soup. The salads are very good.

The food was just OK...as was the ambiance. This place seems good for a big group as there was a lot of seating and space...but we were looking from something a little more trendy and romantic.

I didn't want the beef ravioli but wanted to try Marco's meat sauce. I asked if I could switch sauce on... More

The dining experience is one to remember. A large variety of foods to offer. And cooked to perfection. Pairing with wines for each course is outstanding. Highly recommend the Chefs Table for a group of eight people (reservations needed for the Chefs Table) Chef Marco will walk you thru each course and pair with wines OUTSTANDING!!
