Excellent food, broad menu, nice wine list, and great service. It's a great restaurant for small or large groups.

Transport to Italy for a bit, the dishes are authentic, and the chef/owners and wait staff all know their stuff, and care about your experience. Would stand up against any cozy Italian restaurant in the world.
