Lovely Italian food in a delightful space. Service was very friendly. Antipasti were exceptional, especially the marinated veggies and mushrooms. Pastas were very good. Overall, a very nice experience.

We had a great server, Kathy. She steered us in the right direction for portion sizes, which allowed us to really enjoy ourselves and not be uncomfortable afterwards. We were also able to order a dessert, which is worth the calories here. Another great meal, and many thanks to Kathy.

Bartender at our hotel recommended this restaurant to my husband and I to go to for our anniversary. Great food, ambiance and service. When we were sat we were asked if we were celebrating anything and we mentioned our anniversary. At the end of our dinner we were brought a piece of tiramisu (the best we've ever had) with a...

Decided that we deserved a nice dinner that we didn't cook and this has always been a favorite. It's at the other end of downtown and the traffic can suck so we generally eat elsewhere but we do love the place. The food is wonderful, the room is nice if a bit noisy and the service is always great. Last... More

We were here for a business dinner. Exceptional food, great wine selection and incredible service. Couldn't ask for a better experience. It's not an everyday restaurant but for a special occasion this is the place to go.

This is our favorite special occasion restaurant. We visited just a few weeks ago and I gave it a top rating. On our most recent visit it was even better, so I need to expand the rating scale upwards. The food is always wonderful. My partner and I usually struggle to figure out what to order because there are so... More

If you enjoy great Italian food and a quiet, romantic atmosphere, this may become one of your favorites. We were visiting family last week, and were fortunate to snare a reservation on short notice. (You will DEFINITELY want a reservation, the place was packed on a Tuesday evening.) For details on the menu, check out their excellent web site. The... More

Our party of four went on a Wednesday night with a 6:30 reservation and was seated immediately in a less than half-filled restaurant. We started with the antipasto. While our waiter suggested the larger of the two dish sizes, the small and limited portions of meat and veggies were better suited for two. What I did taste was good. I... More

A lovely and romantic Italian bistro. Even though it was a busy night, I never felt rushed. The Lamb chops were perfect and plentiful as was the filet mignon. They also had a nice wine selection and many by the glass. They had an Italian rainbow cake/cookie that was totally amazing with the extra touch of Love scribed on the... More
