This place was great. Went with a friend while staying over at the Borgata on St. Paddy's Day. Hidden little place a short stroll from the Tropicana. A little small inside but the wait staff and food were both great. I had the Veal Chop Parmigiano on the bone. This I hear is their specialty. A little pricey for Veal... More

It takes months to get a reservation, and the food is expensive, but it is entirely worth it. Want a veal chop the size of your head and as tender as butter? This is the place to get it.

Description one word Outstanding I echo what the other reviews have stated here. The on the bone Veal Parm is unreal. It's the best veal parm I have eaten. The pasta with the blush sauce is also, equally outstanding. If your in AC and need a good meal try to get a reservation before you get here you won't be... More

I am visited this place twice. Both times with friends. It seems you need a connection to get a reservation. The food was absolutely amazing not to mention byob. You won't be disappointed trust me.

Ended with banana cream pie. Small dinning room little loud the night we went but we sat next to some regulars who have... More

The veal is to die for. The pasta is wonderful, I like the blush, my wife clam and spaghetti. The salad with pears, pecans, and blue cheese is the greatest, but I also love the house salad. When the list of desserts is presented, I can't get past the banana cream pie. This is one of the most unique dining... More
