I hosted a business dinner and the food was amazing. Nice wine list, beautiful presentation. We had a variety of wonderful appetizers to share (risotto balls and egg bruschetta were excellent). Pasta dishes are fresh, reasonably priced, and unique. Fun ambiance. Highly recommend!

Enjoyed the soft eggs and lobster bruschetta different and delicious. Main course loved the crab ravioli and the red wine spaghetti. Lobster spaghetti was just ok. Pom martini only average. Overall excellent food.

I'd call to ask. They have plenty of home made pasta and might modify if you request it.
