Always a great place for a celebration or just a delicious dinner. Ossobucco is so good, my husband and I negotiate over who gets to order it. Papperedelli with wild boar and lentil soup good, too. My sister said the rockfish special was delicious. We told them when we reserved that we had a special birthday guest and they did... More

Waiter average to good. Food was competently prepared, however, nothing was a standout. Would go back but not in any great rush to do so. Too many other better restaurants out there.

I had the Rock fish stuffed... More

Have never had a bad meal here. Elegant and fun local destination. Would certainly recommend for an upscale, moderately priced dinner. In the summer on certain days thay also do an excellent grill special.

We had not been here for many years, but are so glad we decided to return for our anniversary. The food was out of this world! We both had salads; each one was incredibly fresh and delicious. For entrees, I had the rockfish with crabmeat topping and my husband had the swordfish special. Both were cooked to perfection - melted... More

Excellent food and service as well as a number of different sized rooms for private parties. Ask the wait staff for recommendations - you'll be glad you did.
