I believe it is closed, and was a good place when it was open, a well-located good Italian restaurant. I tried to book a table last week and no answer

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at the Drake. The food was excellent but not worth the price and the wines prices are extravagant. The Drake suggested a reservation and when we arrived at 5, there was only one other couple in the place. The concierge also advised the hostess, we're in town celebrating my wife's birthday. Not a... More

The food was excellent and fairly priced for the City. All the food is local and service was great. The place is small and not suited for a big crowd but we enjoyed our evening here.

This restaurant was above-average, but not very good. I had the most peculiar take on an antipasto plate I've ever experienced. It was an exciting plate both to look at and eat, but I am not sure all of the taste dynamics worked well together. I did enjoy it and would probably order it again however. My entree was so... More

We live a block from this cozy little restaurant. As some of the other reviewers have mentioned it is not cheap. But it is very good. I recommend it.

This restaurant was highly recommended by the concierge at the Peninsula Hotel. What a disappointment. Crowded, noisy, our table was near the bathroom. Our waitress seemed to be brand new and had no idea how to describe the food, offer suggestions, etc. Asked if a bottle of wine was good she had to ask the bartender. My salmon was burned... More

Recommended by family and our concierge - it's not Jersey Italian to say the least - wine prices off the charts and cannot bring myself to spend 3x the cost of having the same wine back at our hotel or better yet - home!

Our Concierge also recommended this place after saying we would not be able to get into our first and second choice restaurants. It was a bad sign when we arrived at 6:30 to a nearly empty restaurant, only to be seated right next to the only other couple in the place. So much for a romantic dinner. The wine prices... More

Concierge recommended nouveau Italian Restaurant which underperformed. Annoyingly overpriced wine list, unavailable selections and improperly chilled white wines ruined an otherwise unremarkable experience. Service was testy. Small space with brightly lit back room that was distracting. We won't return. There are many better options!
