Smaller Italian restaurant in Jersey City. Lovely Decore. Nice menu. Was disappointed in the server as he just did not have the style and class for that restaurant. He kept leaning on my chair and talking over my shoulder.

Good business casual atmosphere, friendly but unintrusive service and top shelf cuisine make this a winner for work related dinner.

What a delicious meal. I just ate the most AMAZING Gamberi Scampi I ever have had. My colleague had the Maiale Saltimbocca and it was equally delicious. You need to come here if you are ever in the area. We will be back for sure.
