I find the food pretty good and the service excellent. I had the risotto and absolutely loved it. If you check in to foursquare, you can get a good discount!

Especially try the Burrata: It is an Italian cheese made of a fresh Mozarela stuffed with fresh Ricota and served on a plate drizzled with oil and basil: I am salivating just remembering the taste of this sinful dish!
