From the moment we walked in until we begrudgingly departed, the evening was fantastic!!! Brandy greeted us with the news that Chef had just taken delivery of fresh Morels. Sue was an absolute delight with her personality and top service. The house brand Pinot Grigio...More

Had a wonderful meal during soft opening week. Friendly servers that knew the menu well and provided just the right level of service. My husband stated that the Veal Scaloppini was the best he has ever had. I prefer my Salmon blackened and cooked more...More

This is not a typical Italian restaurant, like Olive Garden. This is authentic northern Italian fine dining, which too many Americans haven’t been exposed to. Very few dishes have tomato-based sauces, in favor of more piccata and Marsala style. They used to serve saltless bread,...More

If you want mediocre food, mediocre service, this is the place for you. We arrived at 7:15 for a 7:15 reservation, waited 30 minutes for a table for 5 (our party was 4). Service was barely polite. Food was completely uninspired. Limited wine list. This...More

Excellent food and excellent service. Plus if you want to sit outside and it is not too busy, they will let you bring your dog!!

3 of us had dinner outside, next to the Bocce court and the herb garden. Beautiful setting, well tended. The service was impeccable and attentive, but not overbearing. Two of our party had the seared sea scallops in a Mushroom sauce with the most generous...More

Dined here with a party of six with high expectations. I should have known better from looking at the menu but because it was recommended and because I was expecting more creative specials, went anyway. The potato and green onion soup had virtually no flavor,...More
