Ordered the Lamb Shank with Risotto and it was fantastic. Great flavor and cooked to perfection. More beef flavor with very mild hint of lamb flavor, served with Risotto and fresh steamed broccoli.

Stopped by for lunch, decided on the Kobe beef hamburger. Was tasty and juicy. Came on on ciabatta roll with onion and tomato. Very good. Parking seems to be a premium in downtown Brighton. This restuarant has its own small lot. My wife had the perch with garlic mash potatoes and salad. Shared the salad that was fresh and good.... More

Have eaten here several times and am never disappointed. Food is excellent as well as the service. Highly recommend if you're looking for a nice meal in a casual but upscale environment.

Great food and service and atmosphere but on the high end of pricey. I can only afford it with 50% groupons and drink water.

Located right on Main Street in Brighton. The menu is extensive. The dishes we had were suburb! The decor and ambiance is exceptional. There is very light background music but you can actually carry on a conservation in your normal inside voice. The drinks are of a good pour and there are two sizes of wine pours. Both more than...

Treated to a wonderful dinner here. The atmosphere was great for our large family group, but would also be perfect for couples. Nice large bar area was great for the short wait we had (we were early). The food was outstanding! Everything everyone ordered looked fantastic. Super cute area around the place too. Definitely recommend.

Authentic Italian cuisine that tastes homemade. For you carnivores, they have the best meatballs outside of Italy, & they are huge!

The food is great, steaks are grilled exactly to your liking, the staff is friendly and professional. It's nice to see the manger, always wearing a tie and suit, going around to tables to make sure everything is to your liking! They have a great wine selection also.

Visited midday on a Saturday. Our party of ten was accommodated easily. We were pleasantly surprised with the variety on the menu and the pricing. Some had the urge for pizza and the kitchen provided very good pizza even though it was on the dinner menu. All enjoyed their meals. I had the lasagna and it was quite good.
