My friends through a farewell party for me here and I loved it. They have reserved a separate room and we had the privacy that we required. Food was good. The cocktails tend to be a little stronger than the usual cocktails. Service was OK. I enjoyed the overall experience.

This is a really lovely restaurant with a nice atmosphere. Cocktails were good too however I didn't think the pizzas are as good as the other reviews suggest.
