This is an exquisite restaurant, rather expensive, but sure to impress. Sophisticated, elegant with very fine food and service. I ordered the Veal Saltimbocca which was very satisfying, wonderful sauce. There was a nice selection of fish (salmon, Halibut, Branzino.) The variety of cheeses and...More

My group had a business dinner here. The service and food were great. They have a limited menu, but the selections cover a lot of different types of food. They had a large wine list. It is a little noisy, but it was worth it.

The restaurant had good service, good food, and pricey meals. The salmon was superb but my gnocchi just okay. The braised ribs ravioli was great. The seating is very tight. Our waitress was friendly and attentive.

For a town covered in Old Bay seasoning and the objectively insectoid crab meat, to happen across subtle, poetic Italian food was as shocking as finding out there was gambling at Rick's American Cafe. Straight up tomato soup brought the very best out of the...More

An excellent Italian restaurant that has a wide variety of well-prepared offerings. The food is always good, and the selection is equally good.
